Leuze expanding its portfolio of stationary bar code readers
Designed specifically for conveyor systems, the new BCL 200i from Leuze is a 1D bar code reader with integrated industrial interfaces and simple PROFINET configuration. The device can be configured directly in the control via the GSDML file.
The compact design of the BCL 200i makes it particularly suitable for applications with limited installation space, such as on or between conveyor lines, adds the company. "In addition to the small dimensions, the location of the cable outlet on the side of the device and its dovetail mounting system make it even easier to install in space constrained applications."
The new BCL 200i is said to be particularly suited to guided container identification.
Activation without additional sensor system
The new device also incorporates automatic reflector activation (autoReflAct), enabling activation without an additional trigger sensor system. This is achieved by directing the scanner with reduced scanning beam towards a reflector mounted across the conveyor.
If the reflector is covered by an object such as a container with a bar code label, the scanner activates the read procedure. The read procedure is completed as soon as the scanner can see the reflector again.
