Simplified code and text reading with the new Baumer IDC230

IDC230 can be applied to a wide range of industries, from packaging, electronics, to food. It is also capable of quality tasks in assembly and track and trace in intralogistics

Baumer has extended their Smart Vision portfolio with a code and text reader. The IDC230 is characterised by the same ease of use and commissioning that the IDC200 multicode reader is known for.

Eased integration and commissioning

In addition to the easy installation of the device, users can save time by commissioning via a web interface. Unlike most code and text readers, the IDC230’s setup does not require any specialised software. Combined with its installation accessories, the user menu ensures quick commissioning. Using the USB-C port, the multicode reader can be connected to a computer and operated via web interface. With auto-setup, users need only one click for reading several different codes. The housing, matching accessories, Ethernet and USB-C interfaces as well as Profinet, Ethernet/IP and DIO protocols further ensure easy integration. Configurable data telegrams also allow the code readers of the IDC family (IDC230, IDC200) to be integrated into existing systems and adapted to individual data formats.

High-performance and fast code and text reader

IDC230 is based on the same technology platform as the IDC200 Mutlicode Reader; it is capable of reading multiple lines of text and 1D/2D codes in parallel at high speed. IDC230 can process up to 40 frames per second, even of different code types. The bright integrated lighting will solve even challenging applications without the need for external illumination and this way saving additional costs and effort.

With new IDC230 from the multicode reader series, Baumer provides the right solution for applications in industrial automation that require simultaneous text reading, for example in the form of label inspection. Reflective surfaces, changing light conditions or module sizes at minimum resolution limit are no problem for the IDC230.

Applications ranging from warehouse logistics to electronics production

IDC230 is suitable for multi-faceted applications in varied industries. For example, the code reader can be deployed for quality control in assembly, for track and trace in intralogistics and for various tasks in the industries of packaging, electronics and food.

The IDC230 is available as of Jun 2024.
