RENTON, WA, June 2012 - Microscan announces the addition of the new I-PAK SE2 Stainless Steel Enclosure to its Visionscape I-PAK machine vision inspection system, designed to meet the specific needs of pharmaceutical manufacturers. As a global leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, Microscan identifies the need for reliable, accurate and validated inspection of labels and products, while giving great attention to the ease of use of the solution. The I-PAK SE2 features the field-proven I-PAK interface in a new, sleek and compact box with a larger touch screen display and a more capable PC for easy operability and efficiency.


"The third generation of our Visionscape I-PAK system has already proven its reliability and flexibility for several major pharmaceutical manufacturers around the world," states Scott Summerville, Microscan President. "Microscan continues to update its product offering based on user feedback and we are pleased to offer this modern Visionscape I-PAK enclosure to our customers."

Visionscape I-PAK turnkey inspection system is designed for pharmaceutical and other packaging applications requiring inspection, data and lot verification, and more. This flexible series is compliant with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) Part 11 of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) regarding electronic records and electronic signatures, and comparable EU standards. The updated I-PAK SE2 features a high-speed 19" industrial touch screen PC, which places all controls at the fingertips of the operators in a powerful yet easy to use point-and-click environment. The IP65-rated protective enclosure ensures that the system is dust proof and suitable for wash-down environments. Manufacturers can choose a fixed shelf mount version, or a floor stand option which makes the solution easy to place into a small space in any location.

The Visionscape I-PAK is ideal for use in a wide range of packaging applications such as checking the print quality and readability of date/lot codes, National Drug Codes (NDC) or other human readable marks. With the solution, manufacturers can inspect codes on labels, cartons, inserts/outserts or directly marked on products, as well as decode and verify the quality of linear barcodes, GS1 Data-bar (RSS) and Data Matrix 2D codes.

The complete kit, now shipping worldwide, includes the stainless steel enclosure, I-PAK machine vision software, Visionscape board, and camera breakout cable for connecting up to four cameras.
