1000 scans per second and a wide opening angle of 60° for a large reading field – with these features, the new BCL 900i plays in the upper league of high-end readers. In addition to its code reconstruction technology (CRT), which enables the reading of damaged codes, the BCL 900i bar code reader convinces above all with the variety of already integrated interfaces, whereby the RS 232 as well as RS 422 interface can transmit signals parallel to the Ethernet-based interface, e.g., Ethernet/IP. On top of this are interfaces for Profinet, TCP/IP and UDP. The operation of the reader, among other things for the self-test, auto-configuration, setup and reset functions, is a made easy by means of push buttons. As is typical with Leuze electronic readers, the BCL 900i can be configured independent of location via the Web using a standard browser. During a process, LEDs indicate the respective operating state. Three inputs and two programmable outputs round out the performance capabilities of the reader. The range of applications is expanded further by two versions with different optics (high and medium density). Furthermore, the BCL 900i devices can also be used for omnidirectional code reading in MSPi (Modular Scanner Portals) systems.
