THE BARCODE EXPERTS
Validation is checking that a barcode is present, can be scanned, and matches the barcode expected during a particular production batch. Verification is measuring and grading the quality of a printed barcode according to international ISO/IEC standards, and is a more rigorous process.
Axicon’s Checkrite validators are not intended to replace barcode verification, but they are a very useful check on the correct barcode labelling or printing on any production line, as every barcode will be scanned.
The Checkrite validators are stand-alone systems that are fitted to a production line, and they comprise a control box, a scanner and a sensor. They are PLC (programmable logic controller) based systems that can provide a visual indication of the validity of a barcode, as well as halt the line if an incorrect barcode is scanned.
