OCR and 2D Code Reading for Product Traceability in the Food and Beverage Industry

Date: 4/15/2019 12:00:00 AM


Traceability is crucial in the food and beverage industry. Traceability is the ability to track all components and processes through the whole food production and distribution process. Most bar code readers are able to decode and identify 1D/2D code only, however the date/time is usually in alphanumeric strings, and not be able to be tracked and traced.

System Requirements

1. Capable of reading numbers and QR codes simultaneously

2. Can withstand operation in harsh environments

3. Can be easily deployed

Solution and Benefits

1. Advantech’s EzBuilder software supports flexible licensing and multitasking options, where the identification module can decode 1D/2D codes and characters.

2. To ensure reliable operation for industrial applications, the ICAM-7000 smart camera is IP67 rated for protection from water and dust ingress.

3. Configurable GUI-based software facilitates application development and deployment without complex programming.
