* Illumination angles can be 30⁰, 45⁰, or 90⁰ to meet requirements for direct-part-marked symbols.



If it is necessary to verify QR Code symbols intended for scanning with a smartphone, these verifiers can be specified to use white light.




USB 2.0


System Requirements


Any currently supported version of Microsoft Windows.

Each verifier is supplied complete with the read-head, a CD with the Axicon verifier software, all cables, a quick start guide, a calibration card, and compliance certificates in a protective carry case.

A range of optional accessories is available:


  •   Performance Qualification Test Kit
  •   Presentation Mount
  •   Tube/vial Holder


Performance Qualification Test Kit

Many companies, especially those in the pharmaceutical sector, will be familiar with Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), and Performance Qualification (PQ) testing.  These are tests designed to check that the relevant equipment has been installed correctly, that the equipment operates correctly, and then works correctly as intended.

Presentation Mount:

This is a purpose-built frame allowing for the Axicon 12000 to be used upside down, so making it much easier to verify barcodes on finished products, whatever their size or shape.  It means the verifier does not need to be lifted or moved, and is very useful when it is in high use.  This frame may also be physically attached to a bench to remove the risk of the verifier being dropped or knocked.


Tube or vial holder

This is to be used together with the presentation mount, and makes it much easier to achieve the consistently accurate verification of GS1 DataMatrix symbols on small tubes and vials.
