Accu-Sort Systems Inc. is now offering the AccuLazr AL5010 laser bar-code scanner. This new bar-code system uses a modular design that includes a scan head, mounting base, power supply, and a choice of interface modules.
Housed in a rugged enclosure, the AL5010 is designed for almost any industrial environment, from distribution centers to tire manufacturing plants.
It is easily integrated into most applications, including pick modules, print and apply systems, routing systems, and sortation systems.
In five of its models, the AL5010 provides scanning coverage from 5 to 48 inches (depending on the bar code's size) for both standard and high-density bar-code configurations.
It also offers both a basic interface module and an enhanced interface module. The basic module includes power, scanner, and trigger inputs, as well as Ethernet-EtherNet/IP, and two RS232/422 serial ports. The enhanced module also includes a tach input and up to four optional I/O modules. DeviceNet/Profibus are also available as plug-ins for the enhanced interface.
The AL5010 scanner requires no maintenance other than keeping the scanning window clean in very dusty or dirty environments. In the event of failure, the scan head is "hot-swappable" and can be replaced in less than five minutes without the need for reconfiguration or alignment. Users can press a button on the scan head to upload parameters from the storage module in the mounting base and quickly resume normal operations.
A browser-based user interface allows the AL5010 to be set up right out of the box without the need to download and install software. A simple set of diagnostics included in the interface assists users when monitoring performance statistics over an Ethernet or EtherNet/IP connection. AL5010 is also compatible with Accu-Sort's FAST Monitor remote monitoring and diagnostics system.
