Q. When using the configuration app on my smartphone, what happens if the phone screen locks?
A. If the configuration code disappears from the line of sight of the sensor, the setting will not be completed properly. Make sure the screen lock setting is about 3 minutes or longer to avoid this situation.
Q. How do I replace / clone a reader?
A. The integrated mass storage device makes this process simple.
Q. How do I access the code reader's internal web server?
A. Simply open a browser and enter the IP address of the reader in the search bar. Information available through the web server:
Q. How do the internal filters affect the image?
A. Inversion -- presents the negative of the image. This is useful when a code does not follow established guidelines (e.g., inverted 1D code types) or where where the negative image provides greater contrast.
Dilation -- increases / expands light areas of the code. This is particularly useful when reading etched or peened codes, or in high-speed applications with short exposure times.
Erosion -- increases / expands dark areas of the code. This is particularly useful when reading etched or peened codes, or when there is minimal contrast due to material type or low print quality.
Median -- increases the readability of a low contrast code. It is used in conjunction with dilation and erosion.
Q. What is the analog gain factor?
A. Analog gain allows you to change the brightness of the image without changing the exposure time. It is particularly useful in high speed applications where an increase in exposure time could cause blurring of the image.
Q. How do I filter for a specific code among many?
A. When creating a single model for a desired code, the O2I will only decode the programmed code type, e.g., Code 128. Filtering options are avaialble using the Vision Assistant configuration software.
|Expression||Definition||Sample||O2I input in FIXCODE|
|[abc]||a, b or c||
Show all words containing "a", "b" or "c".
|[^abc]||All letters except those in parentheses||Show all words which do not contain "a". "b" or "c".||([^abc])|
|[a-f]||All letters from "a" to ""f"||Show all words containing "a", "b", "c", "d". "e", or "f".||([a-f])|
Q. How do I trigger the reader over EtherNet/IP and TCP/IP?
A. For EtherNet/IP, use the AOI available in the Start-up Package for the O2I5xx. It is located in the download section.
For TCP/IP, use the Programmers Guide for command details available under the "Downloads" tab at the product datasheet.
Q. What codes can be detected and evaluated by the O2I5 family of readers?
A. The following table shows a list of all codes we can detect.
