Opticon M11 can scan complex barcodes of health insurance cards or airline tickets.
Application for automatic scanning system on conveyor belts in production. This is an application that makes great use of M11's fast and omnidirectional barcode scanning speed. To experience this feature, we built a simulation conveyor. Normally, the product line will have about 1 product running through in 10 seconds. However, experimenting with the simulated line, the Opticon M11 is able to recognize and count absolutely accurately with a much faster conveyor speed, only about 1 second per product.
Scan the barcode on the LCD screen for mobile tickting tickets such as movie tickets, events, and train tickets. With this application, we also have to create a system to simulate the operation process. Usually when we buy tickets like movie tickets for online train tickets, we will be provided with a code.
When you need to print tickets, we will have to go to the staff or enter the manual information the way the stations are currently doing. This way we have to spend more time on long-distance data entry or queuing with the people who buy tickets to get to the ticket counter.
The solution that Opticon offers is an automated code scanning and ticketing system. After buying tickets online and have been provided with a code, you only need to scan the barcode to print hard tickets immediately. Absolutely no time to enter data or queue. The actual experience results in a very fast response to this function.
