Scanner operates at 1200 scans/s

DECEMBER 12, 2008--In a footprint of 22 x 30 x 40 mm, the VB6-240 barcode scanner delivers 0.15-mm (6-mil) resolution to read very small labels and operates at a speed up to 1200 scans/s.

A built-in ACR (Automatic Code Reconstruction) embedded reconstruction software algorithm allows the scanner to decode damaged or normally unreadable codes. Test operating mode, with a built-in bar graph display, is activated by means of a pushbutton on the scanner (external PC not required), with an LED bar graph that indicates the real-time read percentage.

PRESS RELEASE

Pepperl+Fuchs VB6-240 Delivers Fast, Precise, Economical Barcode Scanning in Ultra-Compact Package
Effectively decodes damaged codes that can be difficult to read with other barcode scanners

TWINSBURG, OH - Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the compact VB6-240 Barcode Scanner. With a footprint of just 22 mm x 30 mm x 40 mm, the VB6-240 is one of the smallest scanners available today. Yet it delivers 0.15mm (6 mil) resolution to read very small labels, and operates at a speed up to 1200 scan/s to increase productivity by up to 30% when compared with competitive scanners.

"The VB6-240 delivers efficient and inexpensive barcode scanning. Due to its compact size and high scanning speeds, it is ideal for applications where space is limited and demands are high. High resolution and the built-in ACR (Automatic Code Reconstruction) embedded reconstruction software algorithm enable the VB6 to effectively decode damaged or normally unreadable codes," says Mike Mendicino, Pepperl+Fuchs Product Manager.

Installation and configuration is simple and easy thanks to the unit's compact size and test operating mode with a built-in bargraph display. Test mode is activated by means of a pushbutton on the scanner (an external PC not required), with an LED bargraph that indicates the real-time read percentage.
