MALVERN, PA – February 19, 2020 – ifm, a leading manufacturer of industrial sensors and controls, announced today a new O2I5 Series Multi-code reader for industrial applications. The new O2I5XX identifies and analyzes thousands of codes in a single application, regardless of their position or orientation.
ifm’s 0215XX Multi-code reader is fully self-contained, including imager, evaluation unit, illumination, and inputs/outputs, and is designed for ease of installation and implementation. The advanced programmable logic enables configurable inputs and outputs and can easily adapt to existing architecture.
For simple codes, setup is easy by using a pushbutton to teach the application. The sensor automatically sets the focus, exposure, filters, and code-type recognition in a matter of seconds. This reduces setup time and means more machine running time.
“Day after day we work with end users and OEMs desperately trying to reduce complexity when tracking their production,” said ifm’s Product Manager TJ Berlin. “Soon after implementation of the image-based code reader in an OEM automotive facility we received immediate feedback on not only how easy it was to simply change the IP address of the code reader but also how impressed the facility was on providing only the information they need in the proper format which has reduced their project timeline.”
The O2I5 Series Multi-code reader and other sensors and controls will be exhibited at the MODEX show in Atlanta, GA, March 9 - 12. ifm invites meeting attendees to Booth 5470 to experience its recent innovations and discuss material handling advancements with the company’s product development experts.
