SENSORS: Banner Engineering Corp.’siVu Bar Code Reader (BCR) reads 11 industry-standard bar codes to facilitate advanced traceability — a critical strategy for ensuring highest product quality in packaging, material handling, pharmaceutical and many industrial applications.
Sharing the same integrated touch screen design as the first iVu series model — the iVu TG Image Sensor — the iVu BCR allows users to efficiently configure, monitor and modify an inspection on-site. The iVu BCR deciphers bar codes of varying types to verify correct content at production speeds of hundreds of parts per minute — all within a single compact, rugged package.
Several features of the iVu BCR make it particularly useful in a variety of challenging applications:
2.7 inch (68.5 mm) touch screen display empowers users to configure, deploy and monitor inspections on the factory floor — without a PC.
Intuitive interface allows new users to have the sensor up and running in minutes, without training.
Software emulator lets users perfect their application and preload parameters offline.
Compact, rugged IP67-rated housing is available with an optional integrated ring light-offered in red, white or infrared.
Exposure times as fast as 0.1 ms to ensure reliable performance on high-speed assembly lines.
Three trigger modes are available to suit varying application parameters: External (Single), Continuous and External (Gated).
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
