Datamax Corp. announces the DMXScan for fast, hands-free scanning and productive error handling options designed to ensure that barcodes are correctly printed and are scannable.
Today, high-profile compliance label mandates impact the automotive, retail, aerospace and defense industries. The costs of non-compliance can mean expensive monetary penalties, delays in shipments, and even lost contracts. Now many other industries and small businesses are introducing labeling initiatives because of the cost savings that can be achieved through automated data capture. An efficient supply chain process depends on reliable bar codes. DMXScan is the perfect solution to ensure that, on every label, the bar codes meet requirements.
The Datamax DMXScan uses charge-coupled device (CCD) technology to ensure that your printed barcodes are readable. As the labels pass under the fixed position head, they are scanned at a rate of up to 700 times per second. The received signals of light are then converted electrically and digitized. This captured information is compared to the appropriate internal algorithm via a 32-bit microprocessor and analyzed to ensure that the symbology has good contrast, correct bar width ratios and sufficient quiet zone margins to be decodable.
Fully integrated, different operational modes determine the printer’s action once an unreadable barcode is detected, allowing you to tailor the system to your needs. These menu-selectable fault-handling options include automatic reprinting and automatic voiding of any label containing an unreadable barcode.
