CAM220 - DMC scanner system
The CAM220 scanner system has been specially designed to read data matrix codes on aluminum wheels. The design of the optical components enables universal use of the devices with the full range of wheel sizes in the 14–24" range.
The scanner system is controlled by an industrial PC. By using a standard Ethernet connection, the scanner head can be easily installed up to 50 m away from the control unit. The industrial PC also acts as a buffer memory for the read wheels; at the same time, all data can be automatically entered into an SQL database provided by the customer. With the CAM220, the production data is therefore also simultaneously available in the factory IT – without additional equipment such as PLC connections.
All components installed in the field are installed in a premium-quality aluminum housing with IP67 protection. With the supporting feet available as accessories, no additional equipment is required for installation under a roller conveyor.
Depending on the application, the scanner head can be equipped with one or two cameras. The covered reading range is 200 mm with one camera and 350 mm with two cameras (reading range transverse to the transport direction on the roller conveyor). For use at extreme conditions (water, dirt, etc.), the scanner can be equipped with an automatic self-cleaning unit.
All technical control parts such as industrial PC, power supply units, monitor, etc., are installed in a terminal box in a format of 500 x 500 x 210 mm. This box is also the only transfer point to the customer for power supply and data connection.
- Reading on the fly: The wheels will be read during normal movement on the conveyor with a speed up to 30 m/min.
- Data safety: All CAM200 reading systems are equipped with SSD drives and an integrated database system to avoid any data loss during network interruption in the plant system.
