CCD Scanner

Share this on social media:

Wenglor has introduced an Ethernet-compatible CCD Scanner that recognises barcodes at distances of up to 320mm.

In its rugged aluminum housing, the CCD Scanner checks labels for completeness and correct quality of included information, and reads barcodes that are printed or laser-etched directly onto glossy materials. Even barcodes with minimal contrast or poor printing quality can be detected by the CCD Scanner, which works with red light. Scanned codes and the status of inputs and outputs can be viewed at a single glance in several languages on the OLED display, which also offers intuitive operation. Inadvertent changes to selected sensor settings are prevented by means of password protection. The green 'Good Read' LED mounted directly to the scanner provides the user with clear-cut feedback regarding the current scanning status.

In addition to the graphic display, the CCD Scanner can be optionally configured with the help of a website, which has been set up especially for this product. Worldwide access to the website is made possible by a web server, which has been integrated into the CCD Scanner. Without any additional software at all, the product’s website can be accessed with any desired browser, and data can be read out quickly and easily via a clear-cut user interface from anywhere in the world. Remote maintenance is made possible by this function as well. Thanks to a uniform supply voltage of 24V and degree of protection IP67, the scanner is also suitable for use in harsh industrial environments and extreme temperatures from -20 to 50°C.

The CCD Scanner can be configured via an RS232 serial port or an Ethernet interface, and can be integrated into existing infrastructures. It can be operated with all Ethernet-based communication platforms, by means of which barcode data are read out and transmitted to the master controller. System components connected via Ethernet allow for fast data transfer, easy read-out and analysis of process and service data, as well as location-independent configuration of the sensors.
