OCR Checkrite

Identify Direct’s OCR Checkrite validators are simple to install and easy to use, high speed online, they check every product, are low cost / high value. 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.

OCR Checkrite validators are stand-alone systems fitted to a production line and comprise a control box, a camera and a sensor. They are PC based systems that provide interface with straighforward function for ease of use.

 

Description

Identify Direct is a world leader in developing and installing barcode systems, since 1998. We develop, manufacture and install our Checkrite system based on standard components from suppliers including Omron, Microscan, and others. Our Checkrite is used in ‘track and trace’ in factory management systems as well as being a stand alone system for packaging and label validation (right label on right package).

Validation
Validation is an on-line process that prevents mis-labelling by checking that a Human readable is present, that it can be read and that it matches the expected  string during a particular production batch.

Features
Each OCR Checkrite is installed with a camera and sensor, and the choice will be determined by the particular characteristics of each production line. More details are available from our technical team.

Each system will be delivered with light solution taylored for your application to maximise the benefits of our system.

Operation summary
Before starting a production batch, a correct product is uploaded to the software. A constant green light means that all the products scanned match the stored string. If a different string is scanned, a red warning light will show and line-stop. Missing or unscannable products will prompt an amber warning light. The normal functions are set by the operators with password to the software, but anyone can operate the system.The system also offers the ability to scan the barcode and match it against the OCR. The system can be switched off for non-barcoded products.

Match

If the human readable being scanned matches expected string the light will turn green and the production will carry on as planned.

Mis-match
If the human readable being scanned does not match the stored barcode, the red light will switch on, and stay on until the switch is set to ‘Reset’. A relay with isolated contacts will also be activated, and this may be used to stop the conveyor or activate an ejector arm.

No-read
If a string is missing or unreadable (for whatever reason) the amber light will switch on and stay on until the next read cycle. After a programmable number of consecutive no-reads (usually five) both the amber and red lights will switch on and stay on until the switch is set to ‘Reset’. The relay, as with mis-match, will also be activated.
