D4000 Datasheet

Inspector Model D4000 Datasheet

The Model D4000 Provides the Two Most Popular Types of Verification; ANSI Method and/or Point-and-Shoot Traditional Method

This unique portable bar code verifier can interface with either the patented RJS Auto-Optic scan head or a laser scanner to provide nine different optic configurations. The scanners are easily installed by the user, which makes the unit quickly adaptable to practically any verification requirement.

ANSI Mode OperationA D4000 incorporating an Auto-Optic scanner is the industry’s most flexible ANSI method verifier. Eight optical arrangements are possible via menu selections for four aperture sizes and two wavelengths of light.  The optical geometry meets all requirements of the ANSI X3.182 Bar Code Quality Guideline.
The Auto-Optic scanner is designed and manufactured by RJS for the sole purpose of performing ANSI method bar code quality analysis. Repeatability between units is outstanding, making the D4000 an ideal choice as a standardized company-wide ANSI method verifier.

Laser Mode OperationA D4000 incorporating a laser scanner is an extremely easy to use point-and-shoot verifier – basic scanning instructions are placed on the scanner. It requires virtually no user training and analyzes most of the essential traditional verification parameters.  It also provides the ANSI method Decodability calculation and percent of decode information.

Popular applications include verification on materials requiring special considerations such as shiny, curved or uneven surfaces and wet ink. High density codes with X dimensions as narrow as 5 mil (.13 mm) can be also analyzed.

Product Applications

D4000 w/ Laser Optic

  • Bar codes on curved surfaces
  • Bar codes on easily wrinkled or scratched surfaces
  • Wet ink
  • Codes that are short in height (<= ¼”)
  • UCC/EAN codes where AI and data formats must be analyzed
  • Data match
  • May use for analyzing symbols printed on a laser printer but must pay special attention to the ANSI decodability grade

D4000 w/ Auto- Optic

  • Portable verifier for screening codes printed on thermal or laser printers
  • Shipping codes direct marked on corrugated material (use 10 and 20 mil aperture depending on code type per UCC spec)
  • Codes with Large (> 25-mil) X dimension
  • Verify using IR light
  • Printing codes with multiple sized X dimension
  • Measure reflectance of material
  • UPC codes on flat surfaces (use 6-mil optic)

D4000 – Both Optics

  • General verification device for ISO 9000 companies
  • Verify using IR light
  • Data match
  • Want common users to have ease of point and shoot but need QA personnel to have full ANSI
  • Measure material reflectance
  • Portable verifier for screening codes printed on thermal or laser printers
