Secure identification and decoding of objects
Optical identification via 1D and 2D barcodes is an established way of identifying components and objects and flawlessly managing systems and processes.
Our range of services in this area includes stationary barcode readers, mobile handheld readers and accessories for standard and industrial grade applications. All devices offer decoding options for the standard 1D or 2D barcodes.
With BVS E Identification from Balluff, you can unambiguously identify your products. It reliably reads 1D or 2D codes and stacked codes. In this it makes no difference whether the codes were adhered with a label, printed on, lasered or directly marked. The BVS E Identification reads all codes up to 40 times per second. Even position deviations are not a problem. The sensor can compensate for this.
In order to verify that only the correct products were used, BVS E Identification checks the codes for content. In addition, the sensor has the "OCV" function with which the text and number sequences are verified. In this way, for example, expiration dates on a product can specifically be checked.
To identify products with certainty, a consistent code quality must be ensured throughout the process. The assessment of the code that is needed for this according to ISO-standard is additionally provided by the BVS E Identification vision sensor.
BVS E Identification vision sensors are used in the identification of components in the process and tracking of packages. As well as in manufacturing control.
Balluff handheld barcode readers of the BVS HS-P series read all standard 1D, 2D and stacked barcodes from documents, plastic labels, circuit boards and metal parts. The readers are robust and combine maximum reading performance with user friendliness. In this way, the reader offers the industrial grade protection class IP 65 and also withstands multiple falls onto concrete from up to 2 meters. This ensures reliable use in industry, logistics and warehousing.
The wireless variants with Bluetooth give users maximum freedom of movement. This is because in an environment of up to 100 m around the base station, safe data transmission is possible.
The handheld barcode readers are used in a variety of applications. Among other things: in the control of replenishment process (Kanban systems), manufacturing control, optical tool identification, component tracking, quality control and inventory control (control by Kanban systems).
Balluff BVS HS-Q handheld readers read all standard 1D, 2D and stacked barcodes as well as postal codes in every rotary position up to 40° tilt and in movement. Also the reading under more difficult conditions – such as displays and a slightly reflective background – does not present any difficulties for them. The readers are suitable for reading codes on documents or code labels and offer a good reading performance at the cost-conscious price. Their maximum read range is 40 cm.
The reader is operated directly: Simply aim it at the code and trigger the reader. As soon as the code has been successfully captured, this is indicated by an acoustic signal, a green LED on the reader and an LED spot which is projected onto the read code. The ergonomic shape and maximum 200 g weight eliminate fatigue and are easy on the user's hands.
Balluff BVS HS-Q handheld readers can be used in many areas: Among other things in-house logistics, storage space assignment in the area for small parts storage, commissioning and document management.
The easy-to-operate SmartCamera from Balluff has all functions needed for visual traceability and quality control tasks. It reliably identifies objects by code. The SmartCamera reads 1D, 2D and stacked or directly marked codes just like plain text (OCR). Production objects are reliably found and checked in the process. The results are forwarded via standardized industry interfaces to higher-level systems.
Your equipment includes functions for the integrated test preparation and inspection overview and statistics. In addition, IO-Link products can be directly controlled. The SmartCamera can be quickly integrated into the sequence with its easy, software-assisted operation. Moreover, it is flexible in use thanks to flexible test plan creation.
