THE Leuze BCL8 barcode reader can read virtually any common code. Available from Balluff-Leuze , it communicates through its RS232 interface and comes with either a switching output or a switching input.
Due to its IP67 compliance, this smallest size industry-type barcode reader is suitable for operation in rough ambient conditions.
It not only reads individual component markings in production zones, inspection machines, packaging and labelling but also rides along with robots and handling systems.
Its small design makes it a useful reader for car park ticket reading and parking fee cash machines.
Its miniaturisation opens up entirely new applications in the field of sample identification for the automated instrumental analysis whenever a barcode is to be used for the linkage of patient's data, sample data and analysis data.
The BCL8 reader operates at 500 scans a second and has a reading distance of more than 150mm.
