Offering a wide field of view due to its 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution, the Simatic MV440 reader from Siemens can simultaneously read up to 150 individual, or particularly large, codes. With the OCR license (optical character recognition) "Text Genius" the users can expand its functionality to text recognition. The device’s Power over Ethernet capability reduces the cabling outlay by allowing power, picture data and time-critical data transmission over a shared cable. With the industrial Ethernet switches Scalance X108 PoE/X308-2M and PoE/XR324-4M PoE, the company is also offering the corresponding network components for drawing power from the Ethernet cable. Under the new firmware version 4.0 upwards, users can retrofit all Simatic MV440 variants with the verification function for checking the marking quality of the code with a separate license "Veri-Genius", which can be downloaded through the Simatic Automation License Manager. The latest firmware version also covers the most recent AIM specification AIM-DPM-1-2006. A further innovation that concerns all variants of the Simatic MV440 and MV420 code readers is Profinet IO device replacement, which reduces the configuration work to a minimum following replacement of a defective device, resulting in lower maintenance costs and minimal downtime for the plant. It is also possible for the Simatic MV440 and MV420 SR-P code readers to automatically detect the number of codes and their types immediately, which means that dynamic code types can be used.
