8 Configuration steps
8.1 Image quality

UK

To ensure reliable code recognition adjust and set the reader so that the following criteria are met: The code has to be set to be sharp and should be of the highest possible contrast (ideal = black/ white). The code has to be displayed within the search zone. The size of the code in the image should be no larger than approx. 2/3 of the image. The minimum module size of the code has to be taken into account for selecting the operating distance. (Operating instructions "dualis multicode reader O2I1xx" or www.ifm.com Data sheet direct: e.g. O2I102 Additional data.) Any code position is possible. If there is any interfering reflectance in the image, install the device transversely to the code plane, if necessary. Depending on the code size the resulting trapezoidal distortion can be tolerated within certain limits. Optimise the image definition via the setting screw on the back of the device. To maximise the reading/verification reliability and rate adjust the blue search zone. In the running process the code has to be seen within the search zone. Only image data from that search zone will be used for reading/verification. The reading/verification rate largely depends on the size of the search zone. Therefore do not leave the search zone unnecessarily in its maximum size in time-critical applications. Switch the lighting segments on and off according to the application and the light conditions. The code should be equally illuminated. The 4 segments of the internal illumination can be activated independently with a mouse click on the segments (factory setting = internal illumination, 4 segments "on").

25

PC operating program E2I200

Define the exposure time with [Auto setting]. Readjust the exposure time manually for difficult light or surface conditions. Change to the next step "Define code" with [Next] ( 8.2).

26

PC operating program E2I200

8.2 Defining the code


When a new configuration is created, the program automatically performs a code recognition process after the change from "Image quality" "Define code". This may take several seconds.

UK

8.2.1 Standard recognition and extended recognition


Preferred for code applications with good contrast, surface and light conditions. No filter functions are necessary. The application does not have any time-critical requirements. Select or leave [Standard recognition].
Parameters Module colour Min. contrast [%]: Module size ECC200 QR PDF417 Column and row spacing Standard recognition (default setting) Dark symbols on light background 30 % 6...20 pixels 3...15 pixels No or small distance between adjoining modules ( 10 % of the module size) ECC200 10 Extended recognition Dark symbols on light background and light symbols on dark background 10 % 4 pixels (for high contrast images 2 pixels) 3 pixels (for high contrast images 2 pixels) Greater distances possible ( 50 % of the module size) 30

Enter number of codes in the search zone. (Codes of the same type!) Select the code type in the pulldown menu. If the code type to be recognised is not known, select [Automatic recognition].

27

PC operating program E2I200

Depending on the volume of the image information to be processed automatic code recognition may take several seconds. >> The result field shows the code type and the number of codes recognised. Select [Read code]. >> The result field shows: Number of codes found (figure) Number of codes searched (figure) Code string (contents) Total decoding time (ms) Total time (ms) >> The recognised codes are displayed in a green, numbered code field. When the mouse pointer is moved above the green code field, a tool tip will open giving specific code information (here e.g. code type, status of code recognition, polarity, code size, etc.).

Continue to the next step "Process interface" with [Next]. If code recognition and the reading process were not successful, repeat the process with the setting . "Extended recognition" If this setting is not successful, either, repeat the process with the filter functions of "Preprocessing" ( 8.2.2).

28

PC operating program E2I200

8.2.2 Preprocessing (filter functions)


In difficult applications that cannot be read with the standard or extended recognition. This may for example be the case for codes on curved, reflective surfaces or for codes with heavy soiling. Select the register [Preprocessing]. Select the filter function(s). >> An internal trigger pulse is activated; the image data is transferred to the operating program. The effect of a filter function can be seen directly in the image field.
Filter functions Smoothing Description Smoothing filter Removes/suppresses noise and noise pixels (filter intensity divided into 1x, 2x, 3x) Correction of modules that are too small Enlarges/combines dark pixel groups Decreases/removes light pixel gaps (filter intensity divided in 1x, 2x) Correction of modules that are too large Enlarges/combines light pixel groups Decreases/removes dark pixel groups (filter intensity divided in 1x, 2x)

UK

Enlarge dark pixels

Enlarge light pixels

A combination of up to 3 filters ensures optimisation for special cases. The individual filter functions are applied to the field of view one after the other.

Each filter function requires some calculation time and decreases the obtainable reading/ verification rate in the process. Return to the initial menu by clicking on the register [Code type]. Define the number of codes in the search zone [Codes per image]. (Codes of the same type!) Select the code type in the pulldown menu. If the code type to be recognised is not known, select [Automatic recognition]. >> The image in the reading range changes form "Live" to "Freeze". >> The recognised code type is displayed in the result field. Select [Read code]. >> The result field shows: Number of codes found (figure) Number of codes searched (figure) Code string (contents) Total decoding time (ms) Total time (ms) Continue to the next step "Process interface" with [Next] ( 8.3). If code recognition and the reading process were not successful, repeat the process with other filter functions.

29

8.2.3 Optimisation (e. g. ECC200)


Code-specific reading/verification parameters are available for optimising the evaluation time. Select [Optimised recognition]. >> The "Optimisation" register is displayed. (change: grey black)

Click on [Optimisation]. >> Adjustable code-specific parameters are activated (here e.g. ECC200).

Set code-specific parameters. Activate [Strict model] if the device should use only the set code parameters for reading/verification. This feature can be used for finding codes of a certain size in the image while different codes are ignored. If this menu item is deactivated, the device will first try to perform reading/verification with the set parameters. If this is not successful, all possible code parameters will be processed automatically. Check the reading results and times in the result field with [Read code]. Change to "Process interface" with [Next] ( 8.5).
