The new Boa Spot ID is a low cost identification vision sensor from Teledyne Dalsa that combines 1D/2D code reading with OCR and verification tools for product identification, verification and tracking applications. It can handle up to 45 parts/second.
Supplied with integrated lighting and choices of sensor resolution, lenses and software tools, Boa Spot ID can be used for part and product traceability, reading product codes to avoid labelling mix ups and validating product type, lot and expiration date codes. It can also be used to check that markings and label positions are correct and the presence or absence of features, as well as checking assembly history at every stage ofmanufacturing.
It reliably reads data matrix and QR codes even with damaged or missing finder patterns, in addition to poorly printed, low contrast, noisy, warped and damaged barcodes. It can also decode multiple barcodes in the same image.
