www.pepperl-fuchs.comThe stationary MAC335 universal code reader from Pepperl+Fuchs can read all common 1D and 2D codes (25 code symbologies) within an extremely large range (20 mm to 300 mm) without requiring mechanical modifications. This is an economical compact reader with small mounting dimensions designed for stationary reading. Its high resolution of 1.3 megapixels enables it to read both very small and large codes without having to change settings.

The JavaScript functionality, which the company says is unique in this sector of the market, enables the reader to be linked into all common programs and permits evaluations to be carried out on the reader itself. It is also possible to perform assignments directly on the reader, for example that this engine belongs to the vehicle group manufactured on this conveyor, and similar tasks. This feature often means that there is no need for a PC to be installed downstream for evaluation purposes.

To get around the problem of familiarization with operating different code readers, Pepperl+Fuchs developed a standard operator interface, the Vision-Configurator. Using this, all parameters can be set intuitively and, among other features, images from the reader can be displayed. This code reader can additionally be parameterized easily without the use of operating software via the use of Data Matrix control codes.
