SIMATIC code reading systems

SIMATIC code reading systems

SIMATIC MV420 stationary optical readers read various two-dimensional (2D) codes as well as one-dimensional (1D) barcodes.
The SIMATIC MV440 also features additional functions for checking the marking quality (verification) for process control purposes, and for text recognition (optical character recognition, OCR) and object recognition. All devices can be easily and flexibly integrated into the automation system thanks to standardized, industry-standard interfaces and function blocks.

SIMATIC MV420

The SIMATIC MV420 series is particularly suitable for close-up to mid-range reading distances (approx. 10 mm to 400 mm).

This optical reader was specifically designed for detecting and evaluating a variety of machine readable codes in the packaging industry (e.g. F&B, pharmaceuticals and tobacco) and industrial production (e.g. automotive, electronics and solar). The list of readable codes includes all standard matrix codes and barcodes which can be reliably detected – mostly independent of the printing technology applied and carrier medium used. One key feature of the unit is its ability to read data matrix codes (DMC). The SIMATIC MV420 device family is flexible, reliable and easy to use.

Besides this, two different lenses are available for the SIMATIC MV420 which can be adjusted to the required reading distances. In addition, various powerful integrated illumination systems are available. The particularly compact enclosures have the high degree of protection IP67.

SIMATIC MV440

The SIMATIC MV440 series devices are optical readers designed specifically for the recognition and evaluation of numerous machine-readable codes in industrial production. These optical readers are characterized by maximum read reliability and speed and flexible process connection. They are especially robust and easy to operate and feature high IP67 degree of protection.

The professional decoding software is suitable for almost all types of marking, especially sophisticated “direct part marking”, on a wide range of different carrier materials.

With the “Veri-Genius” license, SIMATIC MV440 optical readers are able to verify the marking quality of codes in accordance with the applicable standards. The device determines the quality of the applied code and helps you ensure the readability using the following process steps. Verification can be performed simultaneously with the other functions, e.g. reading of 1D and 2D codes.

With the “Text-Genius” and “Text-Genius Plus” licenses, SIMATIC MV440 optical readers can be used for text recognition (OCR optical character recognition). Optical character recognition can be performed simultaneously with the other functions, e.g. reading of 1D and 2D codes.

With the “Pat-Genius” license, object recognition, position detection, presence checks, completeness checks and optical character recognition (contour-based) are all possible. Object recognition can also be combined with the other functions.
