Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced the compact VB6-240 Barcode Scanner – one of the smallest scanners available today (22mm x 30mm x 40mm). It delivers 0.15mm (6 mil) resolution to read very small labels and operates at a speed up to 1200 scan/s to increase productivity by up to 30 per cent when compared with competitive scanners. “The VB6-240 delivers effi cient and inexpensive barcode scanning. Due to its compact size and high scanning speeds, it is ideal for applications where space is limited and demands are high. High resolution and the built-in ACR (Automatic Code Reconstruction) embedded reconstruction software algorithm enable the VB6 to effectively decode damaged or normally unreadable codes,” says Mike Mendicino, Pepperl+Fuchs Product Manager. Installation and confi guration is simple thanks to the unit’s compact size and test operating mode, with a builtin bargraph display. Test mode is activated by means of a push-button on the scanner (an external PC not required), with an LED bargraph that indicates the real-time read percentage. -
