Barcode reader suited for wide fields of view

August 2022 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

Omron has announced the launch of the new V440-F barcode reader, to help manufacturers achieve high-volume, high-speed reading of the tiniest codes, and achieve traceability goals such as securing the supply chain and maximising OEE.

The compact V440-F Series provides high accuracy and configuration flexibility by combining advanced code reader technology from Omron Microscan Systems and image capturing technology from Omron Sentech, which both joined the Omron group in 2017.

This high-resolution, field-configurable barcode reader reads dozens of miniscule barcodes simultaneously, for applications in which multiple barcoded products are within the field of view. It can also be configured to read at a long distance, to find multiple codes in a wide area, or on parts moving at high speed. These configuration options make it ideally suited for reading one or many codes during product packaging or in an assembly operation where the code reader is located outside of the operator’s working area.

The intuitive and proven WebLink PC software’s user interface provides easy out-of-box configuration and application tuning, while advanced decoding algorithms help ensure robust reading performance regardless of surface type (including transparent and reflective surfaces). Power over Ethernet (PoE) and connectivity to automation systems via EtherNet/IP and Profinet enable reliable connectivity to automation networks.

Key features of the new barcode reader include a 5 MP resolution global shutter sensor, a dual-core processor supporting an image capture rate of 35 fps, and C-Mount lens options enabling the use of wide-area, long-distance, macro and telecentric lenses. Coaxial spot and ring light kits, along with a variety of cables and bracketing, make it easy to install a complete code reading system.

The PoE, EtherNet/IP and Profinet connectivity using 1000BASE-T, IEEE 802.3 communications delivers reliable, user-friendly data integration, while the matrix mode with ordered output supports the flexible organisation of hundreds of barcode reads simultaneously.

Any manufacturing, logistics, packaging or assembly application where a wide field of view is needed are target applications for the V440-F.
