FQ2-CH

Features

Date & lot code verifier

The FQ2-CH is the ideal solution for date & lot code verifications in packaging lines. With double speed and recognition even of angled or difficult to read texts, the sensor helps you avoid costly product returns or the installation of costly vision systems.
  • Optimized for date & lot code verification in packaging lines
  • Double speed
  • Position compensation for angled prints
  • IP67
