Many food and beverage companies are looking for a data-driven approach to pinpoint deficiencies in their applications. One option is a real time monitor (RTM) system that combines the Cognex Explorer (RTM) with the DataMan barcode reader. By incorporating a scalable architecture, a web-based performance statistics interface, and the Cognex vision technology, this RTM empowers facility managers with data to help them remove system defects and optimize processes.
The RTM trends read rates, evaluates images from packages that were not read, and classifies those images to help improve equipment efficiency. It leverages DataMan’s image-based barcode reading capabilities in industries such as logistics, automotive, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage.
This RTM is a server-based product that connects to a network of DataMan readers and regularly pulls read rate information as well as images from packages. When a process error results in a package with an unread barcode, images are sent to the RTM, which automatically evaluates and categorizes each image with terms such as “packages with no label present” or “poorly printed labels,” and stores them in a database. The data are then accessible for future viewing through any device with a web browser.
Cognex Explorer RTM helps facility managers to immediately analyze and share their system performance, allowing them to continually improve their processes.
