SIMOTION code reading

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

A use case for the identification and tracking of products is the reading of data matrix codes and bar codes. The read product information can be used, for example, for sorting out scrap products.

The reading of the codes is done with SIMATIC MV420 or MV440 code reader systems. The connection of the code readers to the SIMOTION controller can be realized with PROFINET as well as TCP/IP. For that function blocks are provided in the SIMOTION library LDrivers. The analysis and reaction to the read data takes place in the SIMOTION application.

If you are interested, please contact your local sales partner.
