Verification Monitoring Interface (VMI)

Verification Monitoring Interface (VMI)

This video demonstrates the Verification Monitoring Interface (VMI) software plug-in for Microscan's AutoVISION Machine Vision Software. This custom monitoring tool displays data and images specific to barcode quality verification, including grading to ISO parameters and graphing barcode quality trends over time. Manufacturers can use this live data to set alarms or trigger actions based on low barcode quality, which may indicate degradation of the printing or marking system.

Omron Microscan Vision MINI Xi Smart Camera Identifies and Inspects Test Tubes

Omron Microscan Vision MINI Xi Smart Camera Identifies and Inspects Test Tubes

Part of the AutoVISION family of machine vision products, the Vision MINI Xi Smart Camera is the smallest vision system in the world featuring embedded Ethernet connectivity. Ultra-compact and lightweight, this feature-rich camera can be integrated in tight places to perform tasks from reading barcodes for item identification to inspecting parts for missing pieces, such as the presence if caps on test tubes in this high-speed carousel.

Omron Microscan Vision MINI Xi Sends Data to a PLC Over EtherNet/IP™

Omron Microscan Vision MINI Xi Sends Data to a PLC Over EtherNet/IP™

Part of the AutoVISION family of machine vision products, the Vision MINI Xi Smart Camera is the smallest vision system in the world featuring embedded industrial Ethernet. In this demonstration, the Vision MINI Xi, together with AutoVISION Machine Vision Software, decode a barcode and read text on the end of a package. This identifying data is then sent to a PLC system over EtherNet/IP for high-speed data transfer.

MS-3 Laser Scanner Reads 5 mil Code at High Speeds

MS-3 Laser Scanner Reads 5 mil Code at High Speeds

The MS-3 laser scanner is capable of performing decodes at a rate of up to 1,000/second, even when precision reading is required as with these 5 mil sized linear barcodes. The scanner features a compact form factor, corner-exit cabling for flexible integration, and easy setup software, ideal for embedded applications such as embedded test tube reading demonstrated by this example.

MINI Hawk Reading Direct Part Marks (DPM)

MINI Hawk Reading Direct Part Marks (DPM)

MINI Hawk imagers pack aggressive direct part mark (DPM) reading algorithms into a miniature imager that is both powerful and easy to use for barcode and 2D track, trace and control applications. Aggressive decoding is ensured through X-Mode technology, which reads damaged or difficult symbols with no configuration or setup required.

Identifying Cosmetics with Barcode Reading and Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Identifying Cosmetics with Barcode Reading and Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

Logging and tracking product data is an important step for both recording production history and enabling automated processes further down the supply chain. In this video, an Omron Microscan Vision HAWK Smart Camera uses AutoVISION Machine Vision Software to read the text on the top of lipstick tubes, while an MS-3 Laser Barcode Scanner decodes barcodes from the sides of the tubes as they pass by at high speeds.

HS-51 Wireless Handheld Imager Drop Test

HS-51 Wireless Handheld Imager Drop Test

In this video, we demonstrate the durability of Omron Microscan's HS-51 Wireless Handheld Imager, able to withstand multiple drops from 6 feet (1.8 meters). The HS-51 brings Omron Microscan's legacy of auto ID technology to a completely mobile platform, featuring an ergonomic design, IP54-rated enclosure, chemical-resistant materials and Bluetooth Class II communication.

GigE Camera Reads Data Matrix on 800 Cans Per Minute

GigE Camera Reads Data Matrix on 800 Cans Per Minute

Gigabit Ethernet allows for high-speed data transfers at one gigabit per second. Omron Microscan's Visionscape® GigE Camera is ideal for machine vision inspection and barcode reading applications. In this video, the GigE Camera and a NERLITE® Smart Series DOAL® 100 light are used to read CIJ (Continuous Ink Jet) printed Data Matrix symbols from the bottom of vegetable cans at 800 cans per minute, tracking each item for final packaging.

Getting a Grip on Your Pallet Labels

Getting a Grip on Your Pallet Labels

Did you know that 30% of all pallets have some form of labeling problem? Get a grip on your pallet labels by implementing a label verification or validation process to ensure labels are free from printing errors, missing information, unreadable barcodes or inaccurate GS1 codes.

NERLITE Edge to Edge Backlighting

NERLITE Edge to Edge Backlighting

Models in the NERLITE Edge to Edge Backlight Series (patent pending) provide sharp contrast to outline a part's shape, find edges and view openings such as drilled holes, allowing for various vision operations. High intensity and uniformity are packed into a low-profile industrial package providing optimal thermal management to the LEDs. The "Edge-to-Edge" lighting design of models BL-47x59, BL-71x88, BL-100x100 and BL-50x200 provides the unique ability to mate multiple lights to provide larger illuminated areas.
