The new Matrix is equipped with a 2 Megapixel resolution sensor that can read higher resolution 1D and 2D barcodes, including DPM codes, from a greater distance than previously. Depending on the application, material surfaces differ and can vary from shiny metal to low contrast printing. In order to ensure full detection of such codes the Matrix 300N offers different illumination options including polarized, diffused, red and white lighting.
The Matrix comes with new features that have been developed to make the operator’s life easier. To make the remote job change during assembly line reconfiguration smooth and easy, the reader features a new liquid lens technology that offers electronic focus adjustment. At the same time it supports the operator in situations where the production line cannot be easily reached by ensuring fast and dynamic focus change via trigger – without manual set-up. To eliminate the flickering effect that could disturb operators, the reader has a continuous high-power mode (CHPM) light setting.
Being a robust and flexible device, the Matrix 300N protects customer investments and supports versatile applications. With its IP65 and IP67 industrial grade rating and an operating temperature range from 0 to 45 ºC / 32 to 113 ºF, the imager guarantees full reliability even in harsh industrial environments. Thanks to its compact dimensions and rotating connectors the Matrix 300N 2MP can be easily integrated into tight spaces. Additional flexibility is granted by different communication options that include onboard PROFINET IO and Ethernet/IP.
