Reading your data matrix codes
Sensopart's FA45 is a new generation code reader for data matrix codes and bar codes. It uses an enhanced algorithm to give improved reading characteristics, making the FA45 suitable for reading both standard printed codes and the more challenging punched or laser-etched codes. The enhanced software also provides assured reading of codes on uneven and reflecting surfaces, or where there is poor contrast. It also provides reliable reading regardless of base material, including codes on metal, plastic, paper or glass.
The FA45 is configured simply using PC software, with all relevant functions displayed on a single page. The four-step set-up process guides the user through adjustment of luminosity and focus, adjustment of operating, and improvement of parameters where necessary - all whilst displaying a live picture of the object under inspection. Users are offered selection of up to 32 inspection tasks.
After parameterisation, the sensor functions independently in the production environment without the need for a connected PC. Rugged and reliable, the FA45 features a compact, industrialised housing sealed to IP65/67, with standard M12 connectors for the I/O and inbuilt RS422 and Ethernet interfaces. The outputs provide information on operating status, whether a code was successfully read, and whether it agrees with the comparison code.
