The Leuze BCL 200i is the latest addition to the BCL series of stationary bar code readers. Ideal for container and tray identification and especially suited to conveyor systems with limited installation space.

A new addition to the BCL series: the stationary 1D bar code reader 200i.

As an expert in the field of identification, Leuze has been producing bar code readers since the 1990s. The company has continuously developed its product portfolio in this sector. LEUZE bar code readers are designed specifically for conveyor systems and are thus suitable for a wide range of applications. With the BCL 200i, Leuze is now expanding its BCL series with an additional stationary bar code reader.

Small but powerful

The BCL 200i is a 1D bar code reader with integrated industrial interfaces and simple PROFINET configuration. The device can be configured directly in the control via the GSDML file. The compact design makes it particularly suitable for applications with limited installation space such as on or between conveyor lines. In addition to the small dimensions, this type of installation is made easier by the cable outlet on the side of the device as well as its dovetail mounting system.

Ideal for container and tray identification

The new BCL 200i is particularly suited to the detection of 1D codes on trays and containers regardless of whether the bar code is printed vertically or horizontally on the label. The device features integrated Ethernet TCP/IP and PROFINET interfaces. The web-based configuration tool enables remote diagnostics from anywhere in the world.

Detection through code reconstruction technology

The integrated code reconstruction technology (CRT) enables the BCL 200i to read even bar codes with small line heights as well as damaged or smudged labels. With the aid of the CRT decoder, bar codes can also be read at a large twist angle. The resulting decrease in no-reads significantly increases system availability.

Activation without additional sensor system

Thanks to automatic reflector activation (autoReflAct), the new stationary bar code reader can be activated without an additional sensor system. This is achieved by directing the scanner with reduced scanning beam towards a reflector mounted across b the conveyor.. If the reflector is covered by an object such as a container with a bar code label, the scanner activates the read procedure. The label on the container is then read. The read procedure is completed as soon as the scanner can see the reflector again.
