INDUSTRIAL SCANNER SPEEDS UNATTENDED DATA CAPTURE

Datalogic has developed a novel industrial scanner for use in unattended data-capture systems. The AV500 is a 2D image-based reader that can be used in a wide range of logistics, transport, distribution, retail and airport applications without compromising on accuracy.

“Advantages of unattended data capture solutions include improved accuracy and speed, improved cost-efficiency, reduced errors, faster turnaround times and reduced frustrations with paperwork or tedious tasks,” says Mike Svetal, Senior Product Manager, Datalogic.

“Datalogic’s new AV500 scanner enables unattended data capture to function to the highest levels of precision and efficiency, due to its industry-leading high-resolution 5Mpixel sensor, image acquisition at 32 frames per second, dynamic or adjustable focus, and multiple lens options,” he adds.

“The AV500 means that multiple reading attempts are no longer needed, because this powerful scanner covers a large area within a single image,” says Svetal. “Additionally, the variable dynamic focus of the optical system increases the working depth of field of the camera, and its toggle mode provides variable focus for applications without the need for distance input, reducing overall system costs without sacrificing performance.”

The rugged scanners come with IP65 rated metal enclosures, suitable for harsh environments with operating temperatures from 0 to +50°C. In-built active cooling maintains optimal processor performance and ensures a long lifecycle, even in the most extreme operating environments.

The AV500 scanners incorporate Datalogic’s patented PackTrack technology, which allows parcels to be accurately scanned, even at high speeds, with distances as little as 100mm between objects.

“PackTrack technology ensures the precise assignment of labels to the right parcels, no matter the shape of the object. By incorporating this into the reading station, Datalogic can provide accurate, error-proof object sorting in real time, with a conveyor loaded to maximum capacity,” says Svetal.

To aid systems integration, the scanners have been designed with an intuitive, multi-language interface for simple installation and configuration. They are fully compatible with WebSentinel Plus for real-time performance monitoring.

The scanners can be interfaced directly with Profinet and Ethernet IP enabled PLCs with two Ethernet TCP/IP and two serial communications interfaces. SyncNet Technology with Master/Slave allows enables a simplified way to network multiple devices in a solution with a single interface.
