Traceability in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and other manufacturing industries often requires code readers to quickly and accurately capture data from a variety of code types in various locations on products and packaging. To address multi-code reading and positioning problems, industry-leading automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas recently launched the V440-F fixed-mount code reader that can be configured to simplify applications with a single model.

By reading multiple codes at once even as packages move by at speed, the V440-F helps manufacturers save on overall hardware costs and makes traceability easier to implement. The versatile industrial code reader has the mounting flexibility of a C-Mount vision sensor, allowing for short-, medium-, long-distance or wide-area configurations in a compact and cost-effective device. Its high-speed processor can read up to 400 codes simultaneously.

In automotive assembly applications and robotic work cells, it can often be difficult to position a code reader in such a way that it does not interfere with the flow of operation. The V440-F eliminates these positioning challenges with long-distance reading capabilities that let it be positioned at a safe distance from the operator/robot workspace. This long-distance reading is achieved with a high-resolution image sensor combined with a lens selected for the appropriate distance.

The V440-F expands upon the capabilities of Omron’s popular MicroHAWK series with the new WebLink 3.0 browser-based interface that includes functions like “Matrix Mode” and “Ordered Output” for easily customizable data communication. Powerful X-Mode algorithms – also a feature that the MicroHAWKs are known for – ensure that even the tiniest of codes and those printed with blemishes or on challenging backgrounds can be accurately decoded with ease.
