Axicon, the barcode verification solutions provider, has achieved accreditation under the new Solution Provider Accreditation scheme from GS1 UK, the supply chain standards body. Additionally, Axicon has launched its S Range of barcode verifiers, which have been designed to provide users with the highest levels of accuracy currently available by giving results averaged over more than 150 scans of a code at different points in the bar height in less than a second.
"Printed barcodes can vary considerably in their print quality over the height of the code for a number of reasons, such as ink-adhesion, dust and print accuracy. ISO/ANSI standards recommend that to get the most accurate results, users should take a number of scans at different points across the bar height and average the results. Unfortunately, this can be time consuming and laborious," commented Paul Yarnell, Axicon Commercial Director.
"Many users compromise accuracy to meet time constraints. Axicon's S Range verifiers are specifically designed to overcome this problem and provide users with the highest levels of accuracy. S Range verifiers have a continuous scan feature; just place the verifier over the barcode, or slightly above or below the barcode, press the trigger and slide the verifier over the code in less than a second you can have results averaged over more than 150 scans of the code at different points in the bar height," added Yarnell.
Additional S Range features include:
ISO/ANSI verification standards compliant
Automatic scan averaging
Ideal for barcodes with small bar height and GS1 Databar stacked Codes
Automatic Variable Aperture (4, 5, 6, 10 and 20 mil) according to model
Multi language user interface
When S Range verifiers are connected to the standard Axicon software (version 2.0.25 or above), the verifier will automatically be set to operate in continuous scan mode as part of an easy-to-use and comprehensive Barcode Verification System.
Peter Hicks, Chairman of Axicon, said: "We are delighted to achieve GS1 UK accreditation, which provides recognition and endorsement of Axicon's expertise in barcode verification solutions. It demonstrates our commitment and capabilities to comply fully with global standards, and in helping customers purchase the appropriate quality assurance instruments for their barcode requirements giving them the guarantee and confidence that Axicon's solutions provide accurate and consistent data as measured with GS1 UK standards."
