Code reader adds resolution, Power over Ethernet, verification
Siemens' MV440 code reading systems has been enhanced with new features like high resolution, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and code marking verification.
Siemens has enhanced its line of Simatic MV440 1D/2D code reading systems with a wide range of new features, including ultra high resolution, Power over Ethernet (PoE), Veri-Genius code marking verification and Profinet IO device replacement.
Now available with 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution, the MV440 reader delivers a wide field of view and captures up to 150 codes simultaneously. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Text Genius feature expands the functional scope of the reader with text recognition.
PoE enables power, picture data and time-critical data to be transmitted over a shared cable, reducing wiring hardware and installation costs. Additionally, Siemens Scalance X108 PoE/X308-2M and PoE/XR324-4MPoE industrial Ethernet switches draw power from the Ethernet cable.
The MV440 reader features Veri-Genius that automatically verifies code marking quality. Existing readers can also be upgraded with Veri-Genius with Simatic Automation License Manager. The MV440 also offers a Profinet IO device replacement function that allows the reader to be easily and quickly removed and replaced, keeping configuration work to a minimum and lowering plant maintenance costs and downtime.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
