The Verification Monitoring Interface (VMI) plug-in module for AutoVISION software provides a unique and user-friendly interface for 1D inline barcode verification applications. VMI collects barcode data for print quality verification to ISO 15416 and to enable printer condition monitoring, as well as use in statistical trending.

Specialized Interface: VMI is designed especially for verification applications. The Edit view provides easy set up of tolerances to control the pass/fail state of the barcode inspection, as well as trend analysis and match string. The Run view provides simple visual feedback of verification results, including the unique Data Panel displaying a real-time barcode grade and verification data for each inspected part.

Trending & Alarms: In addition to failed codes triggering rejects, VMI can be easily configured to check for simple trends in verification grading and can trigger an output signal if the trend falls below a defined threshold. This signal can be used to stop a production line, or any number of alarm or process improvement activities.

Printer Performance: VMI’s barcode quality verification can, for example, detect a potential clog in a print head. Use this data to purge print heads only when needed, instead of performing inefficient and costly periodic purging regardless of printer conditions.

Secure Access:  Integrated password protection enables four separate access levels, with password control set at the Administrator level.
