AccuVision® HandsFree Camera Reads 2D Symbologies While Increasing Throughput

This white paper evaluates an application implemented by a parcel distributor to expand data capture capabilities by adding a 2-D symbology into existing labels. It examines the challenges involved with the project including the existence of a laser scanning solution with acceptable throughput, need for 2D symbology that reads consistently without any throughput loss, and a solution that fits into the small space occupied by the existing equipment. The choice of AccuVision® HandsFree(TM) mid-range camera system as a solution to these challenges is analyzed, while the results obtained from a laser and a HandsFree camera are compared with respect to number of packages, number of hours to sort, cost savings / day / operator, savings / day, annual savings, and average saving capturing. Advantages of the camera including ability to read 2D codes, increased throughput, greater productivity, plug and play for quick setup and replacement, small size, and time saving feature are also listed.
