Home BlueBox KeyScan – Critical Component Verification

KeyScan – Barcode Scanning System

KeyScan can function as a standalone station or incorporate into other processes or controls such as the AutoTest pictured above.

KeyScan™, the ECIMOS industrial bar code scanning system for key component verification, eliminates the possibility of incorrect unit assembly, guaranteeing the right match for designated parts and sub-assemblies every time. All key components are verified by bar code to the bill of materials, item by item. Bar code scanning system modules may be positioned throughout the assembly line, wherever components are installed. Component serial numbers are then linked with unit serial numbers for complete manufacturer trace-ability.

Powered by ECIMOS™ software, KeyScan is able to keep track of the following parameters:

• Unit Serial Number
• Unit Model Number
• Error Message for failed units
• Component Description
• Serial Number
• Component Model
• Pass/Fail Status
• Test Date
• Operator that tested unit

KeyScan’s software allows for flexible configurations. Convenient drop-down menus allow administrators to configure the station to pull information from an external bill of materials, for instance.

A Manual Component Entry utility is included that allows you to manually scan key components. If a unit comes into a station and not all the components were scanned correctly, this program may be used to scan/rescan the components before testing.

There is also a Manual I/O program. Its outputs let you control the station manually for system maintenance and troubleshooting.
