The Simatic MV420 stationary 1D/2D code reading system is characterized by high reading reliability, a compact design, and a wide range of communications and connection options. The compact device with IP67 degree of protection can read both standard high-contrast codes as well as DPM (direct parts marking) codes even under difficult ambient conditions. Typical uses include product tracking and process control applications in the automotive, packaging, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, cosmetics, electronics, and food and beverage industries. The system with 640x480 pixels resolution has an integrated M12 lens and supports operating distances from 1 to 22.5cm. The operating distance is adjustable using an integrated focus. In addition to its integrated lighting, an external lighting unit may also be connected. It processes up to 40 codes per second. The MV420 features integrated Profi net IO, Industrial Ethernet, and RS232 interfaces. A communications module is used to connect to Profi bus DP, which also allows mixed operation with RFID systems.
