Bar Code Readers & RFID
Bar Code Scanners
Bar code scanners speed up logistics automation and prevents human error. Excellent reading performance ensures the process flow even when the bar codes are damaged or printed poorly. Keystone carries USB, handheld, wireless, Bluetooth, and industrial bar code readers that will read 1D, 2D or 3D bar codes for all industry standard codes including but not limited to: UPC-A, UPC-E, Code 128, ITF-14, Code 39, QR, Data Matrix, and OCR (Optical Character Recognition). Keystone Automation caries industry leading bar code readers from Sick and Microscan.
Even the best bar code readers cannot read codes that are damaged or very poorly printed. Therefore, Keystone also offers systems for bar code verification that will read and determine the quality of your bar code to prevent costly rework and returned product.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)
Radio frequency identification, also known as RFID, are devices that enable communication without direct contact, through a data feed, for tracking and identification purposes. These devices are accurate and a real time saver, thus providing maximum efficiency. Call Keystone Automation for a quote or any question on this technology from Sick and Ballluff.
