Universally usable

The Code Inspection systems of the SIGNUM family enable the examination of ring codes, barcodes and 2D codes such as Datamatrix. Furthermore, large scale prints can be inspected including powerful OCR. The evaluation offers a precise error analysis and functionalities that enable the optimisation of the readings. SIGNUM – fast, simple, powerful for codes.

Code Inspection

The Code Inspection SIGNUM 1 DC / 2 DC is an inspection system verifying codes which is used on packaging machines in the pharmaceutical industry. The Smart Cameras evaluate the prints of barcodes and 2D-codes with extraordinarily high speed.

  • All common codings are read, i.e. China E-Coding Code
  • Error analysis enables the optimisation of code printing
  • High reading speed since only relevant areas are read
  • Reads up to 60 Data Matrix- and 100 barcodes per second
  • Available in various builts to suit individual requirements

For integrating the network compatible readers in the LYNX vision system user interface, the full range of current technologies is available: From a wireless LAN laptop, through a stand-alone stationary touch screen terminal, to full integration into a production line terminal in the scope of a global control concept.

The code readers are available in VGA as well as high resolution. With up to 60 DataMatrix codes and more than 100 barcodes per second, the SIGNUM readers excel due to their high reading speed. The speed is based on two major factors: an extremely short image acquisition time that is achieved by reading only the relevant part of image and a high image transmission rate via a Fast Ethernet connection.

Despite the high reading speed, the code readers recognise the codes independent of orientation and travel direction of the inspected material. SIGNUM 1 DC / 2 DC can handle transport speeds up to 8 m/s.


Available in various builts, e.g. with built-in front optics, side-optics or separated sensor head.


The software enables the user to undertake evaluation without any previous knowledge on coding standards and to improve productivity.

For all coding types, standard criteria are implemented that can be adjusted as necessary.

Quiet zones around the code are necessary for a correct reading. For ideal reading, the software automatically includes these and provides a visual representation.

The evaluation of faulty codes clearly states the deviation so the problem can be resolved and ejects minimised.

Also, the results of the reading are visualised which makes the recognition of consecutive errors easier.
