Accu-Sort Systems, Inc. presented several automated barcode system solutions that increase accuracy and reduce cost during the recent ProMat Show at McCormick Place in Chicago US. The solutions include reliable mid-range laser barcode scanning, affordable print-and-apply labeling, and long-range 2D camera barcode scanning with integrated dimensioning, and side-by-side package detection.
Accu-Sort chose ProMat to debut the first laser barcode scanner in its next-generation AccuLazr line, the AL5010, a scanner that is said to offer exceptional mid-range performance and communication flexibility with a low total cost of ownership. Due to the AccuLazr hardware and software platforms, the AL5010 laser barcode scanner is claimed to be highly accurate, compact, and versatile. According to Accu-Sort Systems, AL5010 laser barcode scanner's MTBF rating makes it one of the most reliable scanners in its class. The scanner provides built-in serial ports as well as Ethernet TCP/IP and Ethernet/IP communications. Basic and enhanced interface modules are available for ease of installation and maintenance. Although AL5010 has a small footprint, it provides a scan range in excess of 40-inches, allowing it to be used in applications where more expensive scanners are too costly or too bulky.
Other solutions to improve operations involve capabilities beyond barcode scanning. At the show Accu-Sort staff discussed how options for the AccuVision AV6010 long-range camera barcode scanner provide integrated, certified dimensioning and side-by-side package detection. These capabilities build on the best-in-class performance of the AV6010 scanner to improve efficiency, reclaim costs, and eliminate costly sort errors.
