Leuze has introduced the BCL 200i stationary barcode reader, which supports guided container and tray identification, and is especially suited to tight installation spaces on the conveyor line.
The new BCL 200i is a 1D barcode reader with integrated industrial interfaces and simple PROFINET configuration. The device can be configured directly in the control via the GSDML file. The compact design makes it suitable for applications in tight spaces, such as on or between conveyor lines. This compact design also features a side cable outlet as well as its dovetail connection.
The BCL 200i is suitable for the detection of 1D codes in guided container reading, regardless of whether the barcode is printed vertically or horizontally on the label. The same is true for guided tray identification when various moving trays are horizontally marked with 1D codes.
The device features integrated Ethernet TCP/IP and PROFINET interfaces. The web-based configuration tool enables remote diagnostics from anywhere in the world.
The integrated code reconstruction technology (CRT) enables the BCL 200i to read even barcodes with small line heights as well as damaged or smudged labels. With the aid of the CRT decoder, barcodes can also be read at a large twist angle. The resulting decrease in no-reads significantly increases system availability.
