Just Scan It – Code Scanning Made Easy!
Identify, Decode and Check
1D/2D and barcode scanners from wenglor reliably process simple barcodes with high data density, all the way up to complex 2D codes, which are marked directly on the respective parts (DPM codes). Thanks to its comprehensive scanner portfolio, wenglor offers the right technology and solution for every code type and application.

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).
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.
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.
Which Scanner Suits Your Application?
The different code types
There are different types of 1D codes:
• Interleaved 2 of 5
• Code MSI Plessey
• UK Plessey code
|• Telepen code|
• Pharma code
• Postal codes
Benefits of 1D codes
- Easy and affordable to create
- High initial reading rates due to check digit in the code
Possible application areas of 1D codes
- Electronics and semiconductor industry
- Automotive industry
- Consumer goods industry
- Transport logistics
The information in the target="_blank">matrix code is represented by a specific arrangement in the geometric line grid. The target="_blank">stacked code , on the other hand, contains information which is represented by lines and spaces of different widths in several lines.
Once the scanner has captured a code, the camera chip detects the contrast between the white spaces and the black elements and converts this information into a binary code. Finally, this data is output via an interface for further processing. Alternatively, the data can also be processed directly in the scanner so that the result can be output via the integrated switching outputs if a read code matches a target="_blank">master code (target="_blank">match code function).
There are different types of 2D codes:
|Matrix Codes||Stacked Codes|
• Data Matrix Rectangle Extension
• Han Xin
• QR Code
• Micro QR Code
• QR Model 1
• Aztec Code
• Grid Matrix
• Micro PDF417
• Codablock F
• GS1 Databar Composite
• GS1 Databar
• GS1 Databar Stacked
Benefits of matrix codes
- High information content with space-saving design
- Error tolerance of up to 30%
Benefits of stacked codes
- More compact than a 1D code
- Height and width can be individually adjusted
