New code scanner from wenglor: scanning without software

Unpack, plug in and you’re ready to scan: wenglor’s new series C5KC and C5PC 1D/2D stationary code scanners make time-consuming software installation and configuration superfluous. Auto-setup, auto-focus and newly developed decoding algorithms automatically provide for outstanding reading performance against almost any background.

Scan settings can be accessed via the intuitively laid out user interface of the wenglor WebLink for optimised reading of damaged and high-resolution codes. They boast the smallest available format for 1D/2D code scanners which makes them ideal for use in extremely compact machines and, thanks to a reading speed of 60 scans per second, they’re well-suited for applications with high throughput rates too.

Competence for Industry 4.0

Thanks to their integrated Ethernet port, the sensors are the perfect solution for customer requirements in the field of Industry 4.0: “Already today, the C5KC and C5PC scanner series are helping to transform the omnipresent vision of Industry 4.0 into reality”, explains wenglor product manager Stefan Winkler. “From scanner setup and the browser-based application solution, right on up to data read-out via Industrial Ethernet, these sensors unite all of the distinguishing factors of an intelligent smart machine.”

All Codes on All Surfaces

The diverse range of applications covered by the 1D/2D code scanners includes, amongst others, product identification and traceability, checking for completeness and quality inspection of 1D/2D barcodes and reading of all common 1D/2D codes (Code 128, UPC/EAN, DotCode, QR and DataMatrix), as well as scanning of 1D/2D barcodes on all surfaces such as PCBs, metal and pallets. Even laser printed and needle punched data-matrix codes are no problem for the new scanner series. With their extensive scope of capabilities and functions, these scanners are predestined for the automotive industry, the pharmaceuticals and foods industries, as well as the packaging and electronics industries where numerous track and trace tasks are part of the daily routine.
