OIS-P PC3040 with IdentSystem Tambour ID

If you today are running an old OIS-P PC3040 system, we want you to know that it is possible to upgrade or complement it with our new, modern Tambour ID system IDeal134.
The installation can be done without any other units or reprogramming of your current system.

Dobot AGV for M1 Robotic Arm

To increase the usability for the M1 robotic arm when used in educational and experimental settings, Dobot have developed an AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) to provide M1 with mobility.

The DOBOT M1+AGV experimental development platform is an all-perceptive experimental platform that combines self-developed collaborative robots and intelligent mobile chassis. It can simulate various practical application scenarios, including target secondary positioning, logistics and material handling, path planning and automatic tracing.

The AGV has a maximum speed of 1km/h and the battery allow up to 3 hours of continuous use. For control purposes it is equipped with Laser radar, gyroscope as well as ultrasonic- and infrared sensors.

Read more about the specifications on our product page at www.identsystem.se.

DOBOT has also produced a demo video that can be found here.

The picture above shows Dobot AGV with an M1 Robotic arm mounted.

Identec pc3103 (OIS-P) tag refurbishment program

Identec solution (Baumer) closed down production of the pc3103/xx (OIS-P) tags in 2018. Until now there has been no replacement tags, refurbishment- or update program available for your originally installed tags. Ident System AB can now offer customers that have this type of tags a refurbishment program that makes the tags as new.

The refurbishment program includes:

  • exchange of battery = prolonged lifetime
  • test of tags functions
  • test of micro wave functions.

The program is based on a minimum tag volume of 20 pc per batch or more. If you have any interest in this please contact Ident system.

Dynamic pallet volume measurement – Cargospect

Identsystem AB are now adding the Cargospect volume measurement system from CIND to our product portfolio. 

Cargospect is an optical system for precise measurement of the volume of a pallets load – for example when a loaded forklift passes the system and is ideal to use for optimising vehicle loading and for invoicing according to shipping volume. Cargospect work fast and with high accuracy.

Cargospect can be combined with barcode and RFID-readers like our own EVS138 and IDeal series for seamless integration and identification of the goods being measured.

Contact us for more information.

Last year to buy EVS144 Pan/Tilt unit

By 31/12 2019 we will replace our old Pan/Tilt unit for the EVS144 code reader with a new modern step motor based design. The dimensions of the new and old units will be different, so for existing customers who want to replace units, or add more to their operations we are offering reduced prices on the old units until the end of the year.For more information and orders, please contact us at contact@identsystem.com, or through your ordinary contact within our company. 
Please note that the picture above shows the Pan/Tilt unit with the imager camera mounted. The camera is not part of the offer.

More features in our Signal Interface Converter

A couple of weeks ago we introduced our EVS Signal Interface Converter (EVS-SIC) as our next product in a series of new releases where refocus on increasing the life and compatibility of your existing system.

That release was focusing on presenting the Serial Interface Conversion aspect of the Converter, but it has a second function.

By connecting the USB port to your trucks (or other devices) USB port, our EVS-SIC can act as a keyboard emulator instead of Signal Converter. This mean that a readers (RFID, Barcode) output when connected to the input of EVS-SIC can be transferred to a truck terminal as if typed on a keyboard.

As for the serial data conversion, the connection is made through standard RS232 interfaces both in and out, and the transfer rate on both ports can be selected between 1.200 to 115.200 kbit/s. Parity and/or Stop bits can also be converted.

The EVS-SIC can also be used for logic control, i.e. the unit can be programmed with a databse for verification of approved ID numbers, which are either used for verification that the tag is correctly read, or for control purposes of a connected unit.

Note that EVS-SIC can only be used as Signal Converter or keyboard emulator, not both simultaneously. 

Use your old equipment with our modern EVS138 readers

We continue this year by presenting our next product in a series of new releases where refocus on increasing the life and compatibility of your existing system.

After Introducing our ZIOX-converter in our RFID line last year, we now present our EVS Signal Interface Converter (EVS-SIC)

You might want to keep your existing camera in a code reading system, while still needing to upgrade the readers to more modern technology. As always when merging new technology with old, there might be problems with communication between the units.
A common case we have seen is when a customer want to switch to our EVS138 readers while preferring to keep their old Baumer EVS128 or EVS134 cameras. Our EVS138 reader communicate via a 115.200 kbit/s interface, while the Baumer camera send its data at 12.000 kbit/s. By connecting our EVS-SIC between the units, the signal is converted seamlessly.
The EVS-SIC can of course be used for any kind of serial data conversion. The connection is made through standard RS232 interfaces both in and out, and the transfer rate on both ports can be selected between 12.000 to 115.200 kbit/s. Parity and/or Stop bits can also be converted.

Ideal125 – a flexible replacement to Baumer Ident OIS-L Series 77 reader.

Ident System IDeal125 LF-controller is fully compatible with the obsolete OIS-L Series-77 reader from Baumer Ident.

ideal125 rfid reader and ideal125a rfid antenna

Our IDeal125 LF-controller is a Read/Write device with two antenna ports that we developed to fill the gap that occurred when production of the Baumer Ident OIS-L product line was stopped.

Being a more modern design than the OIS-L, the IDeal125 has a number of additional features. We kept the external connections and the program commands identical to the old system so all existing cables and programs can be used without causing additional work or cost. New antennas are required but the housings are identical to the old OIS-L series.

To increase the compatibility options even further IDeal125 is avaliable in two different versions, one with a standard RS232 serial interface and the other with PROFIBUS, for compability with those systems that are running on PROFIBUS protocol.

Depending on antenna type and size, this powerful device can achieve a reading distance of up to 30 cm. The IDeal125 two channel controller allows near field and short range applications.
