1D/2D Code Scanners

1D/2D code scanners are stationary scanners that can be used to process all codes reliably – from simple 1D codes with high data density to complex 2D codes marked directly on the objects (DPM codes). 

All-Rounder in Any Situation

1D and 2D code scanners adapt to the circumstances at lightning speed. They read codes of different distances and sizes. A wide scanning area is covered by a large aperture angle. A high scanning stability is guaranteed even in changing ambient light.

1D/2D Code Scanner (C50C)

Scanning with wenglor MultiCore Technology

C5PC Series – Scanning without Software

The 1D/2D code scanners from the C5PC series are ready for immediate use: Automatic configuration takes place thanks to auto-setup and unlimited auto-focus (liquid lens). Thanks to wenglor WebLink (web server), no software is required. In addition, it is optionally possible to save settings in a database stored in the sensor, the so-called Multishot Configuration Database; the settings are processed automatically by a trigger signal and the result is output as soon as a setting leads to scanning success. The functionality is rounded off with protection against manipulation with adjustable password-protected user levels.
  • Scanning of printed and directly marked 1D and 2D codes 
  • Range: 50…1,200 mm
  • Various resolutions: 0.34, 1.2 and 5 megapixels 
  • High-speed mode for capturing up to 32 codes at once
  • Linking of up to 8 scanners via CodeScan 360
  • Code quality determination according to ISO/IEC standards
  • Automated code queries with Multishot Configuration Database for reduced manual programming
  • Interfaces: RS-232, Ethernet TCP/IP, PROFINET or EtherNet/IPTM

With the numerous product variants of the C5PC series, we have the right solution for every industry and every application.

The automotive industry places high demands on the traceability of the installed components – in the quality assurance process, many different types of parts must be continuously checked (track and trace). The scanners used must read different types of codes (1D and 2D codes) that have been applied in different sizes to different materials and difficult surfaces such as dark plastic parts and shiny metal surfaces in different ways (needle-punched, etched, lasered).

Decoding of DataMatrix Codes on Engine Blocks

In end-of-line quality control of engine blocks, a C5PC code scanner uses a needle-punched QR code to determine which engine block it is and which test program must be selected.

DataMatrix Code Scanning on Plastic Hoses in Varying Light Conditions

Thanks to the automatic brightness and exposure control, a C5PC code scanner reliably detects 2D codes on black plastic tubes, even in highly fluctuating light conditions and changing positions.

Rapidly moving electronic and semiconductor components often have very small, dark or glossy surfaces. Thus, the (DPM) codes applied to them are also very small and must be recorded and scanned by the scanner in short cycle times. In order to enable continuous quality assurance, each individual assembly must be scanned and thus identified (track and trace).

Detection of Small QR Codes on High-Gloss Electronic Components

Thanks to their high resolution, C5PC code scanners read very small DPM codes that are barely larger than one millimeter. Using polarization filters or optical diffusers, codes on extremely reflective electronic components are reliably decoded.

Scanning of QR Codes on Printed Circuit Boards

For end-to-end product traceability (track and trace), QR codes are scanned on printed circuit boards in the semiconductor industry and the collected data is transmitted to the control system. Thanks to its compact format, the C5PC can be mounted under the conveyor rail to save space.

Scanners are used to determine the authenticity of each individual item in the pharmaceutical and food industry. They read the product information encrypted in 2D codes and forward the data for plagiarism testing. In order to avoid costly recalls due to the delivery of faulty items, a continuous quality assurance process is also necessary, which prevents the dispatch of reject articles and items with production errors.

360° Code Scanning on Canned Foods

After the filling process in the food industry, all articles are provided with a barcode for traceability and identification. Using the CodeScan 360 link, six C5PC scanners perform a 360° code scan synchronously and at very high speed.

Code Reading of Pharmaceuticals and Packaging at High Speeds

For end-to-end product traceability, the codes of the ampoules (1D) and the associated cardboard packaging (2D) are scanned and assigned to each other when pharmaceuticals are packaged. The 1D/2D code scanners from the C5PC series used have a high-speed mode that enables up to 32 codes to be recorded simultaneously.

Sample Applications

Decoding DataMatrix Codes on Car Interior Doors

In the automotive industry, the quality of individual components of passenger car interior doors must be visually checked for different types of door at the same time. A 1D/2D code scanner reads a DataMatrix code labeled on the door to uniquely identify the door before the test process.

Scanning of DataMatrix Codes on Transparent Rear Windows

In the production of passenger car rear windows, several window variants must be identified, differentiated and tracked. For this purpose, a small DataMatrix code is applied to the transparent glass, which is read and decoded as it passes along the conveyor line despite constantly changing light conditions and backgrounds.
