Wizard™ CT6: looking for a barcode Wizard™ CT6: barcode decoded

Features

  • Allows finding, viewing and reading of invisible one- and two-dimensional barcodes.
  • Works with invisible bar codes printed with inks fluorescing in the NIR (near infrared) range.

The infrared inks provide enhanced security, since labels remain invisible even during the process of reading. UV light will not reveal the hidden labels.

  • Displays decoded data on its high-resolution video screen.
  • The Wizard™ CT6 offers various modes of operation selectable by the user.
  • It can store bar code data in its non-volatile memory.
  • Automatically verifies authenticity.
  • High speed of operation.
  • High immunity to image imperfections.
  • Adaptability to contrast variations.
  • Works well with range of substrates on which the labels are applied.
  • Tolerant to ambient light. Operates in the normal office environment (does not require a dark room).
  • Currently supported barcode symbologies: Interleaved 2/5, Code 39, Code 128, Data Matrix, Armorcode™ (proprietary compact 2-D barcode symbology). Other standard and/or proprietary barcode symbologies may be added upon customer request.
  • Omnidirectional decoding, particularly suited for 2-D barcode symbologies.
  • Computer program resides in the Flash ROM for convenient upgrades.
  • Standard print density: 20 mils. Other densities and special symbol dimensions can be provided on request.
  • Communications interface: RS-232, 9600 baud.
  • Customized versions of application software and label symbologies are available.
  • Convenient software upgrades and modifications through the serial port.
  • Safe to use (no laser radiation).
  • Housing dimensions: 160 mm × 95 mm × 35 mm.
  • Video screen dimensions: 53 mm × 38 mm.
  • Tamper proof / Vandal proof (disables itself when forcefully open).
