SICK is supplying an Intelligent Barcode Scanning Sensor designed to scan eight barcodes per page to verify they are the same and are legible. Barcodes sit at various positions down the approximately one metre long sheet.
Each barcode is printed down the page as they pass under two high-speed, quality ink jet heads with scanners immediately verifying the barcodes.
Each scanner is able to read four barcodes and transfer data to the computer where they are compared and checked against each other. The operator is able to view each set of numbers and assess the scan percentage based on a colour code system. The machine will stop to allow manual checking if any bad reads or mismatched numbers occur.
Now available from Gyzmo Systems, these intelligent barcode scanning sensors include,
- A touch screen computer,
- WLL180T-P434 photo switch fibre optic,
- Two SICK CLV640 scanners,
- Control/power supply box and
- A line relay to halt the machine in case of errors.
