12 May 2017 - The new Axicon 15500 verifier, now available worldwide, provides users with the largest field-of-view for a portable 2D and linear barcode verifier. Its FOV of 95 mm x 70 mm means that users can check a wider range of barcode sizes than with any other 1D/2D verifier currently available.
The barcodes that can be verified include all the 1D and 2D GS1 symbols as well as Data Matrix and QR Codes. All the barcodes in the FOV will be verified simultaneously and the user simply clicks on each barcode to view the results for each one. The Axicon 15500 will check Data Matrix, GS1 DataMatrix, QR Code, and GS1 QR Code, as well as any EAN, UPC, GS1 DataBar, ITF-14 or GS1-128 symbol up to 95 mm wide.
The verifier automatically applies the correct parameters for assessing each barcode based on the requirements of the appropriate ISO/IEC or application standard. The electronic record (scan file) for each test includes all the codes in the field of view. The software is switchable between eight different languages (Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, Korean, Slovenian, and Spanish), and also includes several options for checking the data content of symbols.
“Designing and manufacturing accurate and compliant barcode verifiers that work as simply as possible, with easily understood results, is our main aim,” explains Martin Morrison, managing director of Axicon Auto ID. “Our software ensures that each symbol is verified according to the correct specification, and that the results can be saved to support any quality control procedures.”
“The software is also continually revised to improve functionality and respond to changes to ISO/IEC standards and applications such as GS1. These updates are always free of charge, and will be notified automatically to a user connected to the internet.”
The Axicon 15500 is available for ordering now, with first deliveries expected in early June. Further details are available from www.axicon.com.
Axicon Auto ID Ltd is the UK’s only manufacturer of specialised barcode verification equipment, and is based at Weston on the Green, in Oxfordshire. It has been designing and manufacturing barcode verifiers since 1986, and these are used by major manufacturers and retailers worldwide.
