Multiple Code Reading Applications Made as Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4
Reading more than one barcode at a time is a challenging application for many manufacturing and material handling engineers. In these applications there is a need to read multiple codes of the same symbology as well as multiple codes of mixed symbologies (1-D barcodes and 2-D matrix codes) within one field of view (FOV). Even more difficult is reading one or more codes on multiple sides of a product to verify that the codes match or to output both sides’ read results as one piece of data.
Advanced image-based industrial ID readers should be able to adapt as your application changes, especially when presented with more than one code at a time. You need one barcode reader that can do it all:
- Read any barcode or set of codes, every time
- Is easy to setup
- Can control the data output
- Is simple to integrate into your processes
I’ll explore each of these topics in following posts. In the meantime, what multiple code reading challenges do you face? Contact your local sales representative to see if they can find the right Cognex solution for you.
