Digital bar code reader

154951-keyence_bl1300_v2.jpgKeyence’s BL-1300 ultra-compact digital bar code reader is the first model in its class to use parallel digital processing technology, says the company. Noise reduction and compensation functions, only possible with digital processing, are said to overcome the reading performance difficulties of conventional analog circuits. Constructed with die-cast magnesium bodies, the IP-65 rated readers are highly resistant to dirt and harsh environments, and can be easily mounted virtually anywhere. Keyence’s new High-speed Parallel Processing Engine (HPPE) allows for stable performance of up to 1,300 scans and decodes per second, which is claimed to be unmatched by conventional bar code readers. The BL-1300 Series provide nearly 100 times the information processing capacity and have a high-speed motor 2.6 times faster than previous models. The BL-1300 Series supports USB and Ethernet interfaces while continuing to support RS-232C, RS-422A and RS-485 communication. This wide range of supported interfaces allows for versatile system configuration, says the company. The Multi-I/O function allows users to assign various operational functions to the reader’s two inputs and four outputs, which can be configured to match application conditions.
