New from ifm efector is a multicode reader which it says reliably detects codes such as 1D barcode and 2D data matrix.

The company says it ensures reliable identification even under difficult conditions, for example in case of changing extraneous light or shiny surfaces. Several different codes in one or more images can be evaluated in just a few milliseconds.

Simple applications with one code per image can be set quickly via teach button, saving time and costs. The preset device configuration can be changed by means of a user-friendly smartphone app.

For complex identification tasks, the multicode reader can be configured using the award-winning Vision Assistant software. The company says the intuitive navigation and the visualisation help keep track.
