Identification systems: optical readers and RFID Whether Data Matrix Codes (DMC) or radio frequency identification (RFID): Both marking and recognition systems feature high data security, have been proven in a variety of applications - including in harsh industrial environments - and meet the growing demand for seamless tracking and tracing of products and processes. At the same time, they require less time and effort than manual marking and reading systems. For the precise reading and verification of 1D/2D codes, text recognition (Optical Character Recognition, OCR), and object...

0 Everything necessary for Marking, Verifying, Reading, and Communication Four key elements are required for Direct Part Marking (DPM) traceability applications that we combined under MVRC: Marking, Verification, Reading, and Communication. Marking is placing the code directly on the object, verification is checking the quality of the mark located on the object, reading is reading the mark in the production domain or when servicing, and communication is reliably transmitting the read result. Siemens covers all four key elements with a variety of products and systems and provides support for...

Optical readers The SIMATIC MV optical readers are high-performance, intelligent readers both for easy, high-contrast 1D/2D codes and for difficult-to-read DPM codes on different surfaces on the product itself. The optical readers also permit text recognition, object recognition, and the checking of marking quality. Readers in the SIMATIC MV family also feature high-performance image capture. Different resolutions and integrated lighting thus make the optical readers the obvious choice for flexible use in production and logistics. Device configuration via Web-Based Management and system...

Optical Identification SIMATIC MV - 13

AutoTrigger With AutoTrigger, codes that enter the reader's image field are automatically read. The reader itself searches a sequence of images over any preferred time span for code visibility. It does not require any external trigger signals, such as from a light barrier. Multi-code reading With multi-code reading, up to 150 codes can be coded for each image capture, for example when several objects are bulk-read in one stack. Verification Only high-quality marking can ensure maximum readability in the case of contamination in the production proczes. Verification also reduces production...
