Axicon - PV-1000

The PV-1000 Portable display and collection unit has been introduced in response to the requests of our customers, who appreciate the ease of use and high level of repeatable accuracy of the Axicon verifiers, but would like to add portability to their quality processes.

Collect data on the go

For existing Axicon verifier customers who now find that portability would be beneficial in their quality control there is no need to purchase a new verifier – just add a portable display and collection unit to work with the existing equipment — the Axicon PV-1000.

The PV-1000 is lightweight, rugged and easy to use, giving the user a clear and instant report on the quality of a barcode. It is equally at home in the QA laboratory, print room, warehouse or the production line, giving maximum flexibility for checking the barcodes wherever needed.

When used in conjunction with any Axicon 6000, 6500, or 7000 series verifier the PV-1000 provides barcode verification to the latest ISO and GS1 standards. Results can be printed directly to an optional printer or saved into memory for subsequent transfer to a PC7 — using a USB memory stick.

The PV-1000 can also save the .scn file to enable the user to have maximum access to all of the diagnostics features through the Axicon PC or Mac software. It can also be used in conjunction with the Axicon 'Scan File Data Extractor' to produce quality management analysis spreadsheets.
