Keyence Code Reader

June 2, 2010
Code applications moving as fast as 160 meters per minute can be accurately read with Keyence’s SR-600 code reader, says the company.

Decoding software filters enable stable reading on difficult codes caused by low contrast, scratches, distortion or reflections that can cause inconsistent printing, laser marked or dot-pen-marked parts. The Keyence SR-600 provides users with the option of programming directly on the reader with visible laser pointers or connecting to the reader using Keyence AutoID software. Via the software, an integrated USB port enables live monitoring, testing and function changes.

The SR-600 automatically selects the appropriate combination of filters, shutter speed, aperture and lighting conditions to optimize the code image. For applications that involve unreliable contrast, quality, position or setup changes, the SR-600 compensates by using up to 16 unique parameter banks.
