Balluff Inc. - Easily Replace Legacy Cameras, Code ReadersBalluff’s IDENT sensors read 1D and 2D barcodes and direct part marked codes while providing several other innovative features, including built-in condition monitoring capabilities. And the inclusion of IO-Link allows users to integrate code reading without adding separate Ethernet drops and IP addresses for every reader.

In addition to code reading functions, the sensors can provide visibility into the machine and/or application environment. They can monitor internal temperature, vibration, humidity, inclination, signal quality and operating time — data that can save operators time and money by minimizing downtime and increasing maintenance efficiency.

A firmware update delivers new features:
  • Control of digital outputs — Users can trigger the code reader with a direct input (like a photoeye) and to fire an output for read/no read/code mismatch, etc. This allows the IDENT Sensor to easily replace legacy cameras and laser-based barcode readers.
  • Total sensor backup and teach button lock-out
  • Multiple code tool — This is an especially helpful addition for applications requiring multiple barcodes/2D codes.
These stationary sensors use the MVTec HALCON algorithm, with integrated code quality metrics that allow it to provide a code quality grade in addition to the code data. Users can select from multiple process and data interfaces with support for the REST API and MQTT and IO-Link and TCP/UDP interfaces.

Fast reading speeds and a working distance of 50 to 600 mm make the IDENT sensors a solid choice for production processes and logistics applications across a wide range of industries. An IP67 rating makes them a good choice for packaging, food, and beverage applications as well. Versions are available with white and red light or white and infrared light. A standard M12 connection and a teach button make for easy setup.
