Robotic Vision Systems, Inc. Introduces Next Generation Smart Camera Readers

„NASHUA, N.H., May 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Robotic Vision Systems, Inc. (RVSI) (NasdaqSC: ROBV) today introduced its next-generation line of HawkEye 1500-series smart cameras for ultra-fast reading of Data Matrix symbols and bar codes. The HawkEye 1500-series readers feature RVSI’s industry-leading decoding technology to consistently and accurately read the smallest direct part marks, even if the marks are damaged during the manufacturing process. Reading Data Matrix symbols to identify each component provides manufacturers with unit level traceability, helping to ensure proper assembly and a life cycle history for each product.\r\n

\r\nThe HawkEye 1500 series uses RVSI’s advanced reading algorithms to decode damaged, distorted or otherwise challenging symbols. At the same time, improved processing speeds provide the fastest read rates available. Specialized lighting options enhance the readability of Data Matrix direct part marks and bar code labels, allowing the readers to decode both high- and low-contrast symbols.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe HawkEye 1500 series is housed in a fully integrated package that fits in the palm of the hand. The compact design incorporates both lighting and optics to deliver a plug-and-play unit for use in confined work areas. RVSI’s patented QuicSet(TM) feature utilizes both laser targeting and audio feedback to align the reader in seconds for fast, easy set-up or line changeovers without an external monitor or PC.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe HawkEye 1515 utilizes lighting and optics designed to address the broadest range of Data Matrix reading applications. The HawkEye 1525 employs distortion-free, dark-field illumination typically used for highly reflective parts, while the HawkEye 1510 Data Matrix reader is best used in applications requiring flexibility in the selection of lighting and optics.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nRVSI’s robust decoding algorithms and exceptional lighting technologies deliver powerful data collection tools on production lines. By quickly and accurately identifying each component, the HawkEye 1500-series smart camera provides total traceability, improving process and quality control in every manufacturing environment.\r\n

\r\n\“To the extent that parts today are tracked and traced at all, the technology that has been traditionally used is linear bar codes printed on paper labels,\“ said John Agapakis, Vice President – Products for RVSI Acuity CiMatrix. \“But linear bar codes are unsuited to many applications and store a very small amount of information. A traditional linear bar code may encode eight or twelve digits and consists of bars of varying width and spacing. A laser scanner is typically used to interpret the bar width and spacing. Two- dimensional bar codes represent an important technology improvement in that they store substantially more information in the same or a smaller space and allow for error correction to be built into the mark. In addition, two- dimensional codes such as Data Matrix encode information digitally, providing the ability to print them directly on the part at a very low contrast.\“\r\n
\r\n
\r\n\“The use of Data Matrix frees product manufacturers from the constraints of high-contrast paper labels or precise offset printing,\“ said Ray England, Vice President – Worldwide Sales for RVSI Acuity CiMatrix. \“Codes can be marked directly onto products via ink-jet printing, dot peening, or laser etching. Because each code is made uniquely, it can contain unique information; the serial number of an individual component, for example. This creates a solution to a problem that has become increasingly important in commerce: how to individually identify manufactured items that appear identical, but which have vastly different manufacturing histories.\“\r\n
