Barcode verifiers from Pacific Barcode

If you need to be sure that your printed barcode will scan everywhere, how can you check it?  Using a scanner to test the barcode will only tell you if it can be read by that particular scanner, but a barcode verifier will allow you to grade each barcode’s quality.International standards for measuring and grading the printed quality of barcodes have now been developed since the first American and European standards, ANSI X3.182 and EN 1635, were first published in 1990 and 1995 respectively.  The latest ISO/IEC standards define the techniques required for both conventional linear barcodes, and two-dimensional barcodes such as Data Matrix, and QR Code.

  • A linear barcode verifier will measure seven different parameters of the barcode:
  • How black and white it appears to a scanner (Symbol contrast)
  • Whether the dark bars have enough difference from the white spaces (Minimum reflectance)
  • The least distinct difference between a bar and a space (Edge contrast minimum)
  • How much the contrast between black and white varies across the barcode (Modulation)
  • The presence of white marks in the bars or dark marks in the spaces (Defects)
  • How accurate the different widths of the bars and spaces of the barcode are (Decodability)
  • Whether the light margins on each side, the encodation of data, and the check digit are all correct (Decode)

Product Summary
Specifically designed for use with thermal printers, the Axicon In-line Verification System utilizes CCD imaging technology to provide full ISO grade verification. Identifying common problems such as damaged or dirty printheads, media movement, ribbon creasing light margin, infringements, data content & format errors. A report on the quality of every barcode is displayed instantly on-screen alerting the operator to any deterioration in quality.


A range of reporting tools come as standard including the ability to save the scan file of each and every barcode, or just those that fail; a spread sheet of the results and a summary of every print-run. Easy to use tools providing full auditable traceability - an integral part of any ISO9000 Quality Management system.

The Axicon “S” range allows the user to simply scroll down the code in “continuous scan” mode for the most accurate verification results. Just place the verifier over the barcode (or slightly above or below the barcode), press the trigger and slide the verifier over the code – in less than a second you can have results averaged over a maximum if 100 scans of the code at different points in the bar height.

Axicon 6025-S Barcode Verifier

Applications
The Axicon 6025 - S is designed for all barcodes where a 3, 5, 6,10 or 20mil aperture is mandatory up to a maximum width of 68mm including quiet zones. Consumer level (Point of Sale) barcodes whether being verified on film, cartons, bags, cans, pots or jars plus all other linear barcodes of a similar size.

Features & Benefits
The “S” range of Axicon verifiers have a “Continuous Scan” feature.
Just place the verifier over the barcode (or slightly above or below the barcode), press the trigger and slide the verifier over the code – in less than a second you can have results averaged over a maximum of 100 scans of the code at different points in the bar height.

Hardware

Applications
Pacific Barcode is committed to providing the right Axicon equipment to meet the needs of our diverse range of customers. We have done this by creating a modular system - such that users who already have Axicon Verifier can add portability without the need to purchase a new verifier. Pacific Barcode offers two solutions to those users requiring portable barcode verification.

PV-1000
The most versatile option is available by using an existing Axicon 6000, 6500 or 7000 series verifier (with a USB connector) and simply purchasing a PV-1000 Portable Display and Collection unit. Please download the data sheet for full specification. In this way the user has the full capability of a PC/Mac based verifier - but with the option to just unplug the verifier from the computer and plug it into the PV-1000 for full portability and flexibility.

The PV-1000 can save both a text file of the verification results and also the scan file (which can be uploaded if required into the Axicon PC software). Printed verification reports can be obtained either by using a standard serial (RS232) printer or by transferring the saved data to a PC through the use of a USB memory stick and then printing from the PC.
An Optional protective rubber boot is also available if a higher level of protection is required (please note that the PV-1000 cannot be used in conjunction with an Axicon verifier from the "S" or "HS" range).

PV-1072

For the more price-conscious user who does not have an existing verifier and has a need to only verify the physically smaller barcodes, the PV-1072 provides the ideal solution.

The PV-1072 is supplied as a complete solution with the verifier read-head included.

Unlike the PV-1000, the PV-1072 can only save/print the text file results of the verification (the 1072 does not have the facility to save the scan files). Please also note that the PV-1072 read head cannot be used in conjunction with a PC or Mac to provide more detailed information.
