The S verifier makes this quick and simple. Position the verifier slightly above or slightly below the bar code, press the button and move the verifier down through the bar code. The whole motion takes less than a second and in that brief interval and Axicon S verifier will capture 50, 60, perhaps even 100 scans. Testing the vertical redundancy of a bar code, as required by the ISO specification, has never been faster, easier or more accurate.
Moving the Axicon S verifier down the symbol is not like using a wand across the bar code. There is no learning curve, no user technique, no concerns about a steady, constant speed, none of the inherent inaccuracies of a wand. The user is moving the verifier down through the height of the bar code; the S verifier is doing all the “heavy lifting” across the width of the bar code, at 100 verifications per second.
One of the cleverest uses for Axicon S verifiers is at the delivery end of a thermal or thermal transfer printer. The S-
For example, with an extremely small bar code, an Axicon 6025-
This is also true of heavily truncated bar codes. Not only is the problem of finding the bar code eliminated, repositioning the verifier to do a ten scan average is no long necessary. The S verifier will easily get multiple scans and reports in just one pass. This a time-
The Axicon S verifier is also a time-
Continuous scanning Axicon S verifiers make it easier to detect subtle but important bar code quality clues. Some bar codes may be good quality at the top and bottom of the code, near the bearer bars. But there could be quiet zone infringements at the center of the bar height due to excessive ink spread. The S-
Several very large global retailers and CPG manufacturers have begun specifying Axicon S verifiers to their vendors, because they know how important it is for their bar codes to be thoroughly tested, from top to bottom, not just spot checked on one or two places. Excellent bar code quality is also very important to them because of their substantial investments in high speed sortation systems in their distribution centers. When bar codes fail, these investments become liabilities.
Axicon S verifiers are the only linear bar code verifiers that make it this quick and easy to perform full ANSI/ISO verification. Axicon S verifiers cost only a little more than a standard, static Axicon verifier, but are easier, quicker and simpler for the user. Competitors do not have a comparable product—your reseller margin is protected. Your customer will be delighted—and so will you.
Clients are looking to replace their aging and discontinued verifiers. Many of them believe that all verifiers are pretty much the same, so they are convinced that the only important differentiator between brands and models is price. This is most definitely not true of Axicon verifiers.
Consider the Axicon S models. These are continuous-
