Microscan V430-F050W50C-SWX Industrial Ethernet Barcode Reader
The Omron Microscan V430-F050W50C-SWX is a compact and powerful fixed-mount barcode reader designed for reliable reading of a wide range of 1D and 2D barcodes, including some colored and reflective codes, at a fixed distance of 50mm in controlled, well-lit industrial environments.
Here’s a breakdown of its key features:
- Precise reading at 50mm: Ideal for conveyor belts, sorting lines, and other fixed-distance applications.
- 5MP CMOS sensor with X-Mode decoder: Captures details for standard and complex barcodes, even on challenging surfaces like plastic or metal.
- Wide field of view: Easily captures larger barcodes or multiple codes within the 50mm focal range.
- Fast decoding speed: Up to 42 fps ensures efficient barcode capture even at high speeds.
- White LED ring light + High-power red laser aiming diode: Provides consistent illumination for diverse barcode types and surfaces, offering advantages over other models:
- Rugged design: IP65/IP67 dustproof and waterproof construction withstands harsh industrial environments.
- Flexible communication options: Also connects to various network configurations via Ethernet TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET.
Compared to other V430-F models:
- Offers a shorter reading distance compared to models like the V430-F102W, making it ideal for smaller spaces or products.
- Shares similar core features with the V430-F050M03M-SRX and V430-F050W50C-SWP, but surpasses them in low-light performance and reading reflective surfaces due to the high-power laser.
- More expensive than the NNX and SWP models, but justifies the cost with its significantly improved reading capabilities in challenging lighting and on reflective materials.
In short: The V430-F050W50C-SWX is a top-tier choice for industrial applications requiring reliable reading of diverse barcodes, even in the most demanding lighting conditions and on many reflective surfaces. While it may not handle highly intricate colored barcodes perfectly due to the monochrome sensor, its compact size, exceptional performance, fast decoding speed, and advanced illumination make it ideal for numerous industrial settings where accuracy and efficiency are paramount.
