The Right Optical Handheld Reader for Every Application

With our powerful, high-resolution optical handheld readers, you can reliably capture both two-dimensional data matrix codes and one-dimensional barcodes. Even hard-to-read, low-contrast direct part mark data matrix codes are mastered. A wide range of interfaces – including RS232, USB and Bluetooth – opens the door to universal application possibilities.

SIMATIC MV320

The entry-level handheld device for 1D-/2D codes

The SIMATIC MV320 is the affordable, entry-level device and is suitable for labels with high contrast, but can also be used in specific applications for codes with low contrast.

The SIMATIC MV320 is also available as a wired version (RS232, USB).
The reader is designed for a distance of up to 375 mm.

Advantages

  • High-performance even with difficult-to-read codes

  • Complex image processing functions and exposure technology

  • Codes can be read on a wide range of surfaces

  • High reading speed and recognition reliability

  • Industrial-grade, rugged (no moving parts, no liquid lens), ergonomic design

  • Easy configuration by scanning supplied data matrix codes

  • Simple integration of the reader devices via USB in IT systems (e.g. PC-based) and HMI systems (e.g. SIMATIC Touch Panel) as well as by RS232 interface in automation systems (e.g. S7-based)

Details

SIMATIC MV320 is a rugged, high-performance industrial barcode and data matrix reader delivering high resolutions. The handheld reader can read two-dimensional (2D) data matrix codes and one-dimensional barcodes. It can read data matrix codes with medium to high contrasts. The cell size should be larger than 0.13 mm. Barcodes can be read if the width of a bar is larger than 0.12 mm.

The SIMATIC MV320 handheld reader is suitable for wired communication. The different interface systems (USB, RS232) makes it easy to integrate the device into your applications.


SIMATIC MV325

The high-performance handheld reader with wired communication for 1D/2D codes

The SIMATIC MV325 handheld readers are high-performance readers with wireless Bluetooth communication. The readers are suitable for labels with high contrasts, but can also be used in specific applications for codes with low contrast.

The SIMATIC MV325 readers are supplied with a charging station, which contains the relevant access point of the wireless interface and a wired connection to the host (USB).

The readers are designed for a distance of up to 375 mm.

The charging station of the SIMATIC MV325 handheld reader can communicate with a host computer via USB. No special software is required for this. The SIMATIC MV325 handheld reader itself communicates with the base station via Bluetooth. The read code content is automatically transferred to the charging station as soon as a wireless connection is available. If there is no connection to the charging station, the read results are cached in the mobile part. This operating mode is referred to as a "Batch mode". Once the connection to the charging station is established, the reading results are transferred automatically.


SIMATIC MV340

Powerful Handheld Reader for 1D/2D Codes

SIMATIC MV340 is the powerful handheld reader from the portfolio of optical identification systems. This device is one of the most powerful handheld readers in the world and is therefore particularly suitable for demanding applications.

From a distance of up to 50 mm, it can read a wide variety of direct part markings (DPM), from linear barcodes to 2D systems. Different codes can be read without the need to reconfigure the device. Due to its special analysis logic, SIMATIC MV340 can also read difficult, low-contrast codes.

Thanks to its robust design and powerful analysis logic, the device is suitable for use in both industrial and production environments, as well as in maintenance, servicing and quality assurance.

Advantages

  • Powerful, even with codes that are difficult to read

  • Specially integrated lighting for reliable operation even under varying light conditions.

  • High reading speed

  • Industry-compatible due to its robust, ergonomic design

  • Power supply and data communication via USB port

  • Simple integration of the reader devices via USB in IT systems (e.g. PC-based) and HMI systems (e.g. SIMATIC Touch Panel) as well as by RS232 interface in automation systems (e.g. S7-based)

Details

SIMATIC MV340 is a fully integrated device which unites a powerful reading unit and lighting system in a robust housing with an ergonomic handle. The read process is triggered by a switch on the handle. Feedback on the read process can be received either optically via a multicolor LED, acoustically or by means of a vibrating alert.

The specially integrated lighting unit can switch automatically between different lighting methods in order to ensure optimum lighting conditions at all times for a wide variety of code and surface types. This means that even low-contrast codes or dot peen markings no longer pose a problem.
