Container and tray identification made easy

A new, compact stationary bar code reader for containers, trays and conveyor systems has been introduced by Leuze

Leuze is expanding its portfolio of stationary bar code readers with the introduction of its BCL 200i.  Designed specifically for conveyor systems, the new model is a 1D bar code reader featuring integrated industrial interfaces and simple PROFINET configuration: it 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. In addition to its small dimensions, the location of the cable outlet on the side of the device and its dovetail mounting system are said to make it even easier to install in space constrained applications.

Well suited to container and tray identification

Leuze says that this latest addition to its BCL range of bar code readers is particularly well suited to the detection of 1D codes on trays and containers, irrespective of whether the bar code is printed vertically or horizontally. The device features integrated Ethernet TCP/IP and PROFINET interfaces and a web-based configuration tool enables remote diagnostics from anywhere in the world.

Additionally, the inclusion of integrated code reconstruction technology (CRT) enables the BCL 200i to read bar codes with small line heights as well as damaged or smudged labels. With the aid of the CRT decoder, bar codes can also be read at a large twist angle, with the resultant decrease in no-reads significantly increasing system availability and decreasing down-time.

Activation without additional sensor system

The new device also incorporates automatic reflector activation (autoReflAct), enabling activation without an additional trigger sensor. 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.
