This new AI powered code reader offers variety features which enables it to meet wide application range.
Keyence has introduced a new AI powered code reader that can be used for scanning in variety of applications. The new SR-X series of AI Powered code readers is a compact device, 72% smaller than the conventionally used models. Yet the device provides high performance reading for a wide variety of codes.
The AI, integrated with latest decoding algorithms, provide stable reading between processes, tracking changes in codes that occur from one process to another. The device is capable of linking code readers between processes for improved reading performance. With these connections, the operating status and current settings of the readers on the same network can be viewed together in a list. Automatic focus adjustment and fully automatic tuning make setup easy with the press of a button.
The variety of applications that the device can be used for scanning include : Color changes caused by heat treatment of lead frames, hairline metal surface on battery case, even recording reflections on testtube/bottles.
The device comprises an inhouse developed imaging lens that makes effective use of the entire area captured by the CMOS image sensor, ensuring readability even in the corners of the image. The integrated design provides completely automatic configuration of the best settings with no need to select equipment or adjust settings. The readers just need to configure optimal lighting conditions for the target.
Stable reading is possible regardless of code quality changes, and it is now possible to visualize changes between processes. The SR-X Series can connect readers on the same network, making it possible to analyze code changes for each process in real time. Linking the code information from readers in previous processes to those in subsequent processes makes reading possible for codes with glare, stains, scratches, or other damage.
