Designed to provide a new level of flexibility to OEMs and Systems Integrators, Synrad’s FH-Series “Smart” Marking Head features true stand-alone, automated marking of both moving and stationary parts. In Tracking mode, the FH Smart Head can mark products traveling at line speeds up to 250 feet per minute (76 m/min.) – the perfect marking solution for your “on-the-fly” continuous assembly or packaging needs.
In contrast to FH Index and FH Tracker Marking Heads, which require a dedicated computer to drive each marking head individually, FH Smart heads are set-up using a desktop or portable laptop computer, a Windows® CE device, or a hand-held terminal. Once mark files are downloaded to FH Smart, the programming device can be disconnected and all serialization, date coding, and I/O automation is controlled by the FH Smart Head on a real-time, stand-alone basis.
SmartFH provides the same level of serviceability as FH Index and FH Tracker models, and, because mounting and alignment specifications are identical, all FH-Series Heads can be interchanged without modifications to mounting hardware. In addition to the FH Series’ proven ease of integration, FH Smart provides addition Input/Output capability, as well as a user-accessible, fully isolated power source for powering external I/O devices.
Design SmartFH mark files on your PC using Synrad’s WinMark Pro® laser marking software (available for Windows® 98, 2000, XP, or NT operating systems). After creation, download mark files to FH Smart through the industry standard RS232 communication interface.Â Multiple mark files are stored in FH Smart’s non-volatile memory so that marking data is not affected by power loss.
Because FH Smart is set-up via a standard serial port, no dedicated computer or Fiber Link controller Card is required. This, coupled with the ability to create mark files using the fully-featured demo (free!) version of WinMark Pro® software, means that your “per head" system cost is thousands of dollars lower when compared to FH Index or FH Tracker systems.
All Synrad marking heads use Synrad’s Windows®-based WinMark Pro® marking software. For more information on WinMark Pro®, please visit the WinMark Pro® website.
