Balluff's fast, versatile barcode reader for harsh industrial use

Balluff will be exhibiting their new industrial Handheld Readers for the first time in the UK on stand 5736 at MACH 2016

With the new Industrial Handheld Reader BVS HS-P Balluff expands their offering of optical identification: the portable reader with intuitive operation reliably reads high-resolution barcodes as well as codes over a wide range at a read distance of up to 110 centimetres. Direct Part Marking (DPM) codes can also be read. The ruggedly constructed device offers IP 65 protection and withstands drops from up to two metres without any damage. The wireless version features Bluetooth to give the user the greatest possible freedom of movement within a range of up to 100 metres around the base station. This flexible portable reader is ideal for a variety of applications including traceability, automated replenishment and logistics.

The ergonomically designed Industrial Handheld Reader BVS HS-P from Balluff decodes all common 1D, 2D and stacked barcodes on objects moving at up to 0.8 metres per second. Even tilts of up to 40° and rotation angles of up to 180° do not affect the read reliability. The optical aiming system with a highly visible laser marking border makes handling and target acquisition simple. Acoustic and optical LED signals including a projected LED spot on the code ensure reliable read confirmation in loud or bright surroundings.

The wireless version with its high-capacity rechargeable battery increases the flexibility and enables a variety of portable situations. The Industrial Handheld Reader BVS HS-P from Balluff is simple to integrate via USB, Bluetooth or RS 232 interface. The ergonomic design and low weight ensure comfortable and fatigue-free work.
