Validation or Verification?
Validation is an on-line process that prevents mis-labelling by checking that a barcode is present, that it can be scanned and that it matches the barcode expected during a particular production batch. Verification on the other hand is measuring and grading the quality of a printed barcode according to international ISO/IEC standards and is a more rigorous off-line process.
Identify Direct’s Checkrite validators are simple to install and easy to use, high speed online, they check every product, are low cost / high value and no PC is needed. They are used extensively in factory production lines to prevent mis-labelling which would otherwise often result in product recalls, crippling fines and unhappy customers.
Checkrite validators are stand-alone systems fitted to a production line and 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 the ability to halt the line and display a red alarm if an incorrect barcode is scanned.
The latest Checkrite will scan several barcoded products every second. It can be integrated with a wide range of high speed industrial barcode readers and can be customised to suit individual requirements, with extra programmable features.
