Axicon 6515: includes Product Look-up Option: links the software to a database providing a description of the product that the barcode should relate to as well as the quality control information.

AI Checker: (UCC/EAN-128 and RSS) Gives the user descriptions of the application identifiers used and then validates the information, checking for possible structure and content errors (e.g. date errors, check digit errors, incorrect field lengths etc.).

.csv File Saving: Enables verified data to be stored as a .csv file, enabling the user to analyze their results using Excel, Lotus or any similar spreadsheet program. The system can be set to record all data automatically if required.
The Axicon 6500 series comprises CCD based verifier hardware and application software, conforming to the latest ANSI/ISO print quality standards (ANSI x3.182, EN1635 and ISO/IEC15416-1). Our equipment has been independently tested and conforms to ISO/IEC15426-1.

The Axicon 6500 series is designed for all barcodes where a 5, 6, 10 or 20 mil aperture is mandatory (such as EAN 8 & 13, UPC A & E, UCC/EAN-128 and ITF-14), up to 4.9" width including quiet zones. The simple to use design reduces user error and eliminates product damage while providing the highest level of accuracy achievable for verification.
Simply install the software on your computer, plug in the verifier and you can be confident that your barcodes are being checked to the highest standards.

Exclusive software upgrade features including .csv file saving and the additional ScanDB software (spreadsheet reporting function), Application Identifier (AI) Data Content Checker and Product Look-Up, can either be supplied as part of the package or as a field upgrade to the standard software.
The Axicon Verifier, when used in conjunction with our accurately produced calibration sheet, can form an integral part of your ISO 9000 quality control procedures. Free software updates for life are downloadable.
