The best in class just got better

The REA ScanCheck 3 is a universal high performance barcode verifier which meets to ISO standards. It produces reports which allow to proof that quality agreements are fulfilled. Automatic size determination provides easy use and user independent verification. The measuring system is based on a laser scanner system adapted to the requirements for verification. This technique leads to contactless measurements. The power supply is provided by standard AA rechargeable batteries. This allows fully portable operation. The REA ScanCheck 3 supports German and English. Other languages can be added by the aid of a translation tool. For quick and ergonomic operation the REA ScanCheck 3 is equipped with a large colour display and a powerful 32bit CPU.

Reports can be stored locally or saved on a PC using a USB/Network device and REA TransWin32 software. Additionally the REA ScanCheck allows connecting a portable battery powered report printer. The REA ScanCheck 3 includes always a GS1-128 data content checker with no extra price..

Hardware options

• Report printer REA TD-GPT-U

The portable thermal printer is connected by an USB cable to the REA ScanCheck 3. The printer has its own power supply by using an internal rechargeable battery pack. The printer uses 57 mm wide thermal paper. The paper roll is fixed inside and cannot fall out while using the printer portable. The printer is able to print the scan reflectance profile.

• 20 mil Adaptor

To be able to measure large codes like ITF-14 or other codes on transport labels the measuring aperture can be increased to 20 mil by the aid of the 20 mil adaptor.

• Lengthening plates

As positioning aid and in order to keep labels in the correct distance and angles there are two different lengthening plates available. The plates are mandatory for curved surfaces and objects with no space to position the REA ScanCheck 3 correctly. These plates can be easily exchanged by a snap-in mechanism.

Software options

• Optional symbologies

Additional barcode symbologies. Special codes for i.e. health industry and for parcel services.

• REA TransWin32
A data capture program for Windows PCs. This enables the verification reports to be displayed, saved and printed on a PC. Additionally the REA ScanCheck 3 can be remotely configured by TransWin32. REA TransWin32 is designed for PCs with Windows 2000, XP and VISTA.

• REA Article Look Up
This option allows an article description to be shown on the display of the REA ScanCheck 3. Each article can be assigned with price and date fields. The date fields will be compared with the date in a GS1-128 barcode. If the encoded date is outside of the range specified in the Article Look Up the REA ScanCheck 3 will show an error message. This function is very useful to extend bar quality control with the verification of data like “best before use”.

• Comparator
This option allows the comparison between a master code and the verified codes. If the verified code content is not identically with the preset, the REA ScanCheck 3 shows an error message.
