This feature helps in worksites where the reading distances of cardboard boxes vary, or if the location where the barcode is affixed varies. With an In-Line reading feature, reading is possible with a greater depth of field over a larger field of view, and the high processing speed means there’s no need to set the size of the cardboard box being read.
An always on function allows for reading with minimal movement through overhead placement. With conventional models, work occurred in three steps: Take the product in one hand. Take the handheld code reader in the other. Scan the code. With an Always-On function, reading is done simply by taking the product in hand and allowing the reader to scan the product.
With this feature you can achieve stable readings even on cardboard boxes of varying widths and with labels applied in various locations.
With a Tuning Consultant you can easily discover the optimum mounting position and prevent post-installation problems. The Tuning Consultant automatically determines the optimal installation position in order to ensure the required reading range, depth of field, and line speed without performing a line test. This will greatly reduce the time required for the design process and the number of tests to determine the best installation, resulting in dramatically reduced start-up costs and time.
A lens with a greater depth of field allows for the handling of changes in reading distance that result from the different types of vehicles being transported, for example.
