Webscan, a provider of barcode verification products, has introduced a new system capable of verifying invisible 2D barcodes that are visible only under UV light.
The TruCheck 2D UV is said to be the first commercially available handheld 2D barcode verifier for invisible barcodes used in security applications such as track and trace. It incorporates UV wavelength LEDs and a UV sensitive CCD camera.
Webscan president Glenn Spitz said: ‘The TruCheck 2D UV empowers printers to verify the readability of invisible barcodes and diagnoze printing issues like never before. From anti-counterfeiting and other security applications, to simply printing a code that does not disturb the graphics on a package, invisible barcodes are gaining more and more interest across several industries.’
The TruCheck 2D UV is operated by Webscan’s easy-to-use software interface which can verify 1D (linear) and 2D barcodes. Detailed reports are generated and stored automatically.
