ITS integrates Cognex inline barcode verifiers in a range of industry sectors including automotive, pharmaceutical and medical device. Cognex barcode verification technology ensures the readability and compliance of 1D and 2D barcodes in line with industry guidelines.
Today most companies spot check codes one at a time using offline, operator-based verifiers which can be slow and cumbersome. The DataMan 475V series inline barcode verifier provides automated high-speed verification and quality reporting directly on your line to prevent product waste and increase productivity. Immediate feedback and visual diagnostic information provides operators with the ability to identify and correct printing and process control issues as they happen.
Detailed reports can be generated for traceability, process control, and compliance. This enables you to verify on high speed lines without sacrificing analytics. The DataMan 475V provides several immediate ways to assure quality:
- Set alerts for when code quality begins to decline
- Grade up to 20 codes per second
- Export verification results to your PLC, database, or FTP server
- Improve processes with detailed analysis and diagnostic information for every code
- Achieve compliant barcode verification results
- Meet regulatory requirements
The DataMan 475V four-quadrant, 45-degree lighting attachment is compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15416, 15415, and ISO/IEC TR 29158 requirements for grading 1D and 2D codes.
The included calibration card and robust grading algorithms ensure that the DataMan 475V conforms to ISO and application standards while providing accurate and repeatable results. The barcode verification software provides visual diagnostic information to identify one-off or trending code quality issues. It assigns an overall grade to a code based on measurements of ISO-defined quality parameters. These parameters measure several factors that affect a barcode reader’s ability to identify and decipher a code, maximising read rate performance throughout the supply chain.
