Opticode® Vision BarCode Reader

Barcodes offer fast and accurate means of collecting product data during the manufacturing process, effectively implementing Computer Integrated Manufacturing into the workplace. Historically, there was no practical way to accomplish bar code reading at a distance.

Now Opticode® Vision BarCode Reader, designed by InfoSight, uses a standard CCD Shutter Camera to read barcodes. Long (200mm) lenses can be used to read barcodes beyond the range of laser scanners. The system's video monitor can be used to assist an operator in positioning the camera using an optional pan/tilt/zoom mechanism.
