Overview

Code reading systems – Reading and verification of 1D/2D codes

For state-of-the-art production systems, tracing products and parts with machine-readable identification is a central requirement. A unique coding system permits the planning of each and every step of production for every part manufactured and changes within the production process or in the materials used. Direct marking of products also allows the implementation of specified legal requirements for tracing production batches throughout the production system.

What is Direct Part Marking (DPM)?

Direct Part Marking (DPM) is the application of a mark directly on the surface of a product without the use of a separate carrier material, such as an adhesive label. This makes it possible to identify products in production and tracing them after delivery as well.

With so-called 2D codes a coding method is available that meets these user requirements. 2D codes consist of easy to implement, point-shaped basic elements. Laser and needle marking technologies are outstanding regarding durability, marking speed and material independence. Despite mechanical deformations, e.g. with metallic workpieces, the 2D codes can still be read using 2D read devices even after multiple processing steps. 2D codes also provide the advantage of being able to encode data in more limited spaces than comparable barcodes or text

 

Benefits

  • Unique identification of products or product parts - Direct Part Marking is the key technology for product traceability.
  • Flexible and economic solutions thanks to the complete and scalable portfolio of powerful stationary code reading systems.
  • Simplified engineering, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance through seamless integration into Totally Integrated Automation:
    • Integrated bus connection to an automation system, such as SIMATIC, SIMOTION or SINUMERIK via communication modules with PROFIBUS and PROFINET.
    • Simple S7 software integration via ready-to-use function blocks.
    • Extensive status and diagnostic functions.
  • Greater security of investment due to support of all standard matrix and bar codes.
  • Openness through connection possibilities to various bus systems from different manufacturers and PC environments via communication modules.

Stationary code reading systems

SIMATIC MV440 and MV420 stationary code reading systems

The stationary code reading systems include compact basic and high-performance reading devices. The devices read various two-dimensional (2D) codes as well as one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. Optionally, function packages can be added to all SIMATIC MV440 devices using SIMATIC License Manager licenses. The following licenses are available for function expansion:

  • Veri-Genius for measuring the marking quality
  • Text-Genius for text recognition and
  • Pat-Genius for object recognition

These optional modules can be combined as desired.

The SIMATIC MV440 can also read plain text (Optical Character Recognition: OCR)

Handheld reading systems

SIMATIC MV320 handheld reading system

MV325 handheld reading system

These handheld reading systems are powerful, high-resolution readers for either two-dimensional (2D) data matrix codes and/or one-dimensional bar codes (1D). The devices can communicate with a host via RS232, USB and Bluetooth, depending on the selected model.

Verification systems

By using verification systems, the readability of marks is guaranteed throughout the entire production process, regardless of any possible contamination or when using different readers. Moreover, the marking can continue to be read after the production process throughout the lifespan of the product.

In addition to reading 1D bar codes and 2D matrix codes, SIMATIC MV440 can be expanded at any time with verification functionality using the "Veri-Genius" verification license. The license is supplied as a "Single License" on a USB stick and can be copied to the SIMATIC MV440 with the SIMATIC Automation License Manager (ALM) using a plug-in. The license is executable on any SIMATIC MV440 as of firmware version 4.0.

Optical character recognition

SIMATIC MV440 HR OCR

With the "Text Genius" OCR license, SIMATIC MV440 can also be used for optical character recognition (OCR) in addition to reading 1D bar codes and 2D matrix codes. It is also possible to read and compare plain text and machine-readable code in the same image field.

The license is supplied as a "Single License" on a USB stick and can be copied to the device with the SIMATIC Automation License Manager (ALM) using a plug-in. The license is executable on any SIMATIC MV440 firmware version 3.0 or higher.

Object detection

Object recognition with Pat-Genius

With the "Pat Genius" object recognition license, SIMATIC MV440 can also be used for object recognition (object classification, position detection, counting, etc.) in addition to reading 1D bar codes and 2D matrix codes. In addition, the functionality is possible in combination with text recognition, for example, thus enabling position control of a label and control of the labeling (reading and comparison) of plain text in an image field.

The license is supplied as a "Single License" on a USB stick and can be copied to the device with the SIMATIC Automation License Manager (ALM) using a plug-in. The license runs on every SIMATIC MV440.
