Microscan V420-F064M12M-NNX Industrial Serial Barcode Reader
The Omron Microscan V420-F064M12M-NNX is a highly capable, micro-sized barcode scanner designed for industrial automation and machine vision applications. Here’s a breakdown of its key features:
Compact and Rugged:
- Ultra-compact: Measuring only 44.5mm x 38.1mm x 25.4mm, it effortlessly fits into tight spaces and integrates seamlessly into existing setups.
- IP54 rated: Dust and water-resistant, making it suitable for harsh industrial environments.
- Corner-exit cable: Offers flexibility for installation and routing without cable clutter.
- High-resolution 5 MP color CMOS sensor: Captures crisp images for accurate decoding of 1D and 2D barcodes, even damaged or poorly printed ones.
- X-Mode advanced decoding algorithms: Enhance reading performance in challenging conditions like low light, high contrast, and distorted codes.
- No additional lighting: Relies on ambient light for operation, making it a cost-effective choice for some applications.
- Red aiming beam: Assists with precise alignment and barcode targeting.
Flexibility and Connectivity:
- High-density 15-pin connector: Offers multiple communication options including Serial, USB 2.0, and Ethernet over USB for seamless integration with various systems.
- WebLink browser-based interface: Enables easy configuration and monitoring via web browser.
- A broad range of accessories: Includes cables, power supplies, and optical accessories for various mounting and lighting needs (optional).
Comparison with similar models:
- Compared to the V420-F064M12M-NNP, the NNX model boasts a higher resolution sensor (5 MP vs. 1.2 MP) for crisper image capture and potentially better reading performance, especially with complex or damaged barcodes. However, it lacks the NNP’s cost-effective reliance on ambient light and may require additional lighting in some scenarios.
- Compared to the V420-F064M03M-SWX, which also has a 5 MP sensor, the NNX lacks the SWX’s built-in white LED ring light and high-power blue LED illuminator. This makes the SWX a better choice for applications requiring consistent and adjustable brightness for various barcode types and surfaces.
Overall, the Omron Microscan V420-F064M12M-NNX is a powerful and versatile barcode scanner suitable for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications where space constraints and accurate reading performance are crucial. Its compact size, high-resolution sensor, and flexible connectivity make it a valuable asset for many businesses.
