BVS-ID Vision-based Identification
Reads both 1D and 2D codes simultaneously

In manufacturing 2D codes are becoming the standard because they are tolerant to code imperfections/defects and they can store more information in a smaller footprint. The smaller code size is especially important in PCB manufacturing, where circuit board space is at a premium.

Balluff's Sharpshooter vision sensor for identification can not only read both the 1D barcode(s) and the 2D code(s) simultaneously, but it also has the highest code module resolution available in its price range and can read these smaller codes independent of their color, orientation, or rotation in relation to the camera lens
