Industrial Bar Code Verification on Clear Labels Image

Application: Detecting codes on clear labels

Challenges: Clear labels provide very little contrast

Solution: iVu BCR barcode reader with integrated UV ring light

Benefits: UV ring light improves contrast and makes detection easier

Barcodes printed with clear ink are challenging to detect on labels since there is minimal contrast. It is vital that each label has a barcode to ensure the highest quality product and complete accuracy. Vision sensors are used to enhance contrast on clear labels for accurate detection in industrial barcode verification applications.


An iVu BCR barcode reader with UV ring light are an ideal solution for detecting bar codes in a low contrast situation. The iVu is coupled with UV illumination for an all-in-one solution that improves contrast on clear labels so barcodes are easily detected. The iVu BCR provides 2-dimensional area inspection versus single point inspection with UV photoelectric sensors, which helps establish better contrast in this application.

The iVu BCR is available with in models with an intuitive touch screen interface and can also be configured with a PC using Vision Manager software. The intuitive operating environment and menu-driven tools make it easy to configure, troubleshoot, and make changes to their inspections, as well as monitor the results from a convenient location. It is rated to IP67 and comes in two UV wavelengths of 365 and 395 nm.
