Keyence Introduces Digital Bar Code Reader


Keyence Corp. has released the Keyence BL-1300 Ultra-compact Digital Bar Code Reader. According to the company, this product is the first model in its class to use parallel digital processing technology. Noise reduction and compensation functions, only possible with digital processing, overcome the reading performance difficulties of conventional analog circuits.

Constructed with die-cast magnesium bodies, the IP-65 rated readers are highly resistant to dirt and harsh environments, and can be easily mounted virtually anywhere, the company adds. The new high-speed parallel processing engine allows for stable performance of up to 1,300 scans and decodes per second.

The BL-1300 Series provides nearly 100 times the information processing capacity and has a high-speed motor 2.6 times faster than previous models. Keyence has also developed a new aspherical lens that doubles the intensity of the received laser reflection, reducing noise and increasing the effective label reading distance, according to the company.
