A primary use of the compact Simatic MV440 code-reading systems, which feature high protection rating IP67, is for reading data matrix codes such as direct part marks (DPMs) on objects under difficult ambient conditions in an industrial environment.
Thanks to its flexible lighting options, the system can be adapted to the respective application. Typical uses are product tracing, process control and checking the quality of marking in a variety of applications in the automotive, packaging, pharmaceutical, tobacco, cosmetics, electronics and food&beverages industries.Several versions of the new Simatic MV440 1D/2D code reading system are available: with integrated lighting for working at a distance of up to 80 centimeters, with external lighting and a working distance of up to three meters; with and without verification; as well as with a resolution of 640x480 or 1024x768 pixels. The Simatic MV440 reads up to 80 codes per second, reliably detecting up to fifteen types of code that have previously been stored in the device. As a result of its "multi-code reading" feature, up to 50 codes can be decoded every time an image is recorded. This is advantageous for bulk-reading of several objects that are stacked one on top of the other, for example.
Customized user interfaces are created with the help of visualization software, for example with Simatic WinCC or WinCC flexible. Diverse diagnostic, logging and evaluation functions are also provided. For example, time stamps, fault profiles and result values can be archived in database systems to generate trend analyses or statistics.
