This article and Ramco TV video will be taking a look at the Emulator software for the Banner IVu as well as reviewing potential applications.
This software is a free download from Banner’s website. As I mentioned in part one, no pc or software are required for programming. The key advantage of the emulator software is that you can upload any image into the emulator and perform a basic inspection. This is a great tool for testing the camera solution and presenting the solution to upper management.
There are four basic tools on the TG.
The camera can not only read the barcode but verify the barcode is correct number and give a pass or fail indication. The advantage of using a camera instead of a traditional line scan reader, is with the camera the barcode doesn't have to be in the same exact place as long as it's within the field of view it can read it. It also has the ability to read it in any orientation.
