Whether Compact or Modular Solution:

Our stationary optical readers can reliably capture printed, lasered, drilled, punched and dot-peen codes on a variety of different surfaces. Text recognition (OCR) is possible with the "Text-Genius" license and object recognition is possible with the "Pat-Genius" license. A verification system allows you to continuously check readability. The wide range of communications possibilities – including RS232, PROFIBUS, PROFINET and Ethernet – makes it easy to integrate the reading system into your automation solution.

SIMATIC MV420

High-Performance Code Reading on Smallest Room

The SIMATIC MV420 stationary optical reader is characterized by high reading reliability and a wide range of communications and connection options. The compact device with high IP67 degree of protection can read both standard high-contrast codes as well as DPM (direct parts marking) codes even under difficult ambient conditions.

Typical uses include product tracking and process control applications in the automotive, packaging, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, cosmetics, electronics, and food and beverage industries. In addition, the MV420 is also suitable for shipment tracking in logistics and distribution.

Communication Modules for the Most Varied Interfaces

Quick Commissioning and Optimal Diagnostics

Whichever RFID system or identification system you connect to SIMATIC PLCs, PCs or PLCs from other manufacturers: the communication module provides for the necessary adaptation. In doing so, communication modules can be employed both for production and logistics applications. With the function block FC/FB 45, the readers of all RFID systems as well as optical identification systems SIMATIC MV420/ MV440 can be handled standardized. This ensures that existing applications are operational immediately and do not have to be rewritten when another reader type is used.
