Automatic ID

Image-Based Code Reader suits quality control applications.

February 8, 2013

Available for 1D and 2D codes, Lector620 is suited for quality control, labeling applications, and track/traceability uses. Unit offers intelligent setup and intuitive operation, including teach-in with auto-focus, allowing users to mount scanner at any distance from code and automatically optimize setting for best read. Housed in metal enclosure with IP65 or IP67 rating for harsh conditions, Lector620 offers multiple on-board interfaces such as Ethernet TCP/IP, CAN, USB, and RS232. Read More

Computer Hardware & Peripherals, Automatic ID

Hand-Held Scanners target warehouses and distribution centers.

February 7, 2013

Designed to read 1D bar codes, Model IDM160 features corded design with 3 Good-Read indicators, including beeper, green LED, and vibration. Unit reads codes down to 3 mil resolution and up to 800 mm distance (for 20 mil codes). Using Bluetooth communication, cordless Model IDM160-BT can operate up to 30 m from wall-mount cradle. Unit also offers batch scanning capabilities whereby it can store up to 20,000 EAN codes when outside of Bluetooth range. Both are IP65 rated for heavy-duty environments. Read More

Vision Sensor combines inspection and positioning.

February 7, 2013

Available in white or IR ring light option, Inspector PI50 contains expanded toolbox for object location and positioning based on taught-in pattern, free-form, and line/polygon object shapes. Unit also provides tools for quality inspection such as blob, pattern, edge, and pixel counting inspection. With Inspector PI50, users can build their own operator's interface with sensor's web API, and operate sensor from any computer or operator panel with standard web browser. Read More

Vision Systems

Vision System uses 2D imaging and 3D cross triangulation.

February 6, 2013

Designed for robotized de-racking of stamped body parts, stand-alone PLR includes localization software and tools that facilitate integration with robot. Combination of 2D imaging with 3D cross triangulation ensures reliable operation in varying environments, while integrated Web server UI and integration tools support smooth integration into production. Vision system facilitates introduction of new parts into existing work cells and decreases part changeover times. Read More

Photoelectric Sensor comes in tough plastic housing.

January 28, 2011

Supplied in VISTAL(TM) housing, W9-3 has over-molded connector and custom ASIC that incorporates OES3 technology, which optimizes background suppression at extended range. Teach-in or potentiometer adjustment is available, and complementary (light and dark operate) outputs are standard. Exhibiting immunity to ambient light, sensor is capable of ignoring stray background reflections and detecting multicolored/shiny objects. Several mounting options are available. Read More

Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Photoelectric Sensor detects irregular shaped objects.

August 27, 2010

Suited for leading and continuous edge detection of multi-height objects, pallets, and containers with holes/gaps, model WL27-3 Reflex Array photoelectric sensor features 50 mm detection height and detects any object that is 12 mm or larger. High resolution version offers Minimum Detectable Object (MDO) resolution down to 5 mm with 24 mm detection height. Unit is also suited for use in products with tapered edges (totes), bagged product, warped boards, and packaged products. Read More
