2.3 ID-NET™
The ID-NET™ network is a built-in high-speed interface dedicated
for high-speed reader interconnection. ID-NET™ is in addition to
the Main and Auxiliary serial interfaces.
The following network configurations are available:

ID-NET™ M/S Synchronized: Single station – multiple readers
ID-NET™ interface allows local connection of multiple readers reading different sides of the
same target. All readers share a single presence sensor and activate/deactivate
simultaneously.
At the end of each reading phase a single data message is transmitted to the host.
Thanks to ID-NET™, data communication among readers is highly efficient so that an
immediate result will be available.
19
MATRIX 210™ REFERENCE MANUAL


ID-NET™ M/S Multidata: Multiple stations – single reader
ID-NET™ interface allows connection of readers reading objects placed on independent
conveyors. All readers are typically located far away from each other and they use a
dedicated presence sensor.
At the end of each reading phase, each reader transmits its own data message to the host.
Thanks to ID-NET™, data collection among readers is accomplished at a high speed without
the need of an external multiplexing device. This leads to an overall cost reduction and to a
simple system wiring.

2.9 EXTERNAL LIGHTING SYSTEMS
In some direct part marking applications best reading results are obtained by using an
external lighting system.
The LT-700 Linear Array Lighting System provides a high intensity light source designed for
the following applications:
with uneven, noisy and scratched surfaces
where dot peening or laser etching codes are directly marked onto metal surfaces or
PCBs and need to be highlighted. Here the use of more than one LT-700 at different
positions can remove any shadowing effect.
in the presence of highly reflective surfaces (metal, glass, etc.) causing direct reflections.
Low light path to surface angles strongly reduce direct reflections.

Matrix 210™ is able to decode code labels at a variety of angles, however significant angular
distortion may degrade reading performance.
When mounting Matrix 210™, take into consideration these ideal label position angles: Pitch
or Skew 10° to 20° and Tilt 0°.
Note: Since Matrix 210™ is omni-directional on the code plane, the Pitch and Skew angles
have the same significance with respect to the code plane. However in some advanced code
reading applications performance can be improved by modifying the Pitch angle.
Follow the suggestions below for the best orientation:
The Pitch and Skew angles are represented by the values P and S in Figure 34 and in Figure
35. Position the reader in order to avoid the direct reflection of the light emitted by the Matrix
210™ reader; it is advised to assure at least 10° for one of these angles. In some cases, such
as low contrast or low illumination, it can be useful to use a Pitch or Skew angle = 0°.

We recommend making system connections through one of the CBX connection boxes since
they offer the advantages of easy connection, easy device replacement and filtered
reference signals.
If you require direct wiring to the reader the details of the connector pins
and relative connections are indicated in Chaper 5.

4.5 INPUTS
There are two optocoupled polarity insensitive inputs available on the reader: Input 1
(External Trigger) and Input 2, a generic input:
The External Trigger can be used in One Shot Mode or in Phase Mode. Its main functions
are:
acquisition trigger in One Shot Mode
reading phase-ON/reading phase-OFF command in Phase Mode
The main functions of the general purpose Input 2 are:
second external trigger in Phase Mode
match code storage command when the Match Code option is enabled
The electrical features of both inputs are:
VAB = 30 Vdc max.
IIN = 12 mA (reader) + 12 mA (CBX) max.
The active state of these inputs are selected in software. Refer to the VisiSet™ Help On
Line.
An anti-disturbance filter is implemented in software on both inputs so that the minimum
pulse duration is
0.5 milliseconds. This value can be increased through the software
parameter Debounce Filter, see the Digital I/O folder in the VisiSet™ Help On Line for further
details.
These inputs are optocoupled and can be driven by both NPN and PNP type commands.
Polarity insensitive inputs assure full functionality even if pins A and B are
exchanged.

ID-NET™ Network Termination
The network must be properly terminated by a 120 Ohm resistor at the first and last reader of
the network.
5.6 AUXILIARY RS232 INTERFACE
The RS232 auxiliary interface is available for Point-to-Point, Pass Through or Master/Slave
connections. When it is connected to the host computer it allows both transmission of code
data and reader configuration by VisiSet™.
The parameters relative to the aux interface (baud rate, data bits, etc.) as well as particular
communication modes such as LOCAL ECHO can be defined through the Communication
folder of the VisiSet™ utility program.

5.8 INPUTS
There are two optocoupled polarity insensitive inputs available on the 25-pin connector of the
reader: Input 1 (External Trigger) and Input 2, a generic input:
The External Trigger can be used in One Shot Mode or in Phase Mode. Its main functions
are:
acquisition trigger in One Shot Mode
reading phase-ON/reading phase-OFF command in Phase Mode
The main functions of the general purpose Input 2 are:
second external trigger in Phase Mode
match code storage command when the Match Code option is enabled
The electrical features of both inputs are:
Maximum voltage:
30 Vdc
Maximum current:
12 mA
The active state of these inputs are selected in software. Refer to the VisiSet™ Help On
Line.
An anti-disturbance filter is implemented in software on both inputs so that the minimum
pulse duration is
0.5 milliseconds. This value can be increased through the software
parameter Debounce Filter, see the Digital I/O folder in the VisiSet™ Help On Line for further
details.
These inputs are optocoupled and can be driven by both NPN and PNP type commands.
Polarity insensitive inputs assure full functionality even if pins A and B are
exchanged.

6 TYPICAL LAYOUTS
The following typical layouts refer to system hardware configurations. However, they also
require the correct setup of the software configuration parameters. Dotted lines in the figures
refer to optional hardware configurations within the particular layout.
6.1 POINT-TO-POINT
(21x-x0x and 21x-x1x models)
In this layout the data is transmitted to the Host on the main serial interface. The RS232
auxiliary interface can be used for reader configuration by connecting a laptop computer
running VisiSet™. Host Mode programming can be accomplished either through the main
interface or the Auxiliary interface.
In Local Echo communication mode, data is transmitted on the RS232 auxiliary interface
independently from the main interface selection.
When One Shot or Phase Mode operating mode is used, the reader can be activated by an
External Trigger (for example a pulse from a photoelectric sensor) when the object enters its
reading zone.

6.2 PASS-THROUGH
(21x-x0x and 21x-x1x models)
6.2.1
Pass-Through on RS232
Pass-through mode allows two or more devices to be connected to a single external serial
interface.
Each reader transmits the messages received by the Auxiliary interface onto the Main
interface. All messages will be passed through this chain to the host.
When One Shot or Phase Mode operating mode is used, the reader can be activated by an
External Trigger (for example a pulse from a photoelectric sensor) when the object enters its
reading zone.
Applications can be implemented to connect a device such as a hand-held reader to the
Auxiliary port of the last reader in the chain for manual code reading capability.

Pass-Through on ID-NET™
An alternative Pass-Through layout allows the more efficient ID-NET™ network to be used.
This layout is really an ID-NET Master/Slave Multidata layout which also allows each reader
(Master and Slaves) to accept input on the Auxiliary interface, for example to connect a
device such as a hand-held reader for manual code reading capability.
Each Matrix 210™ transmits its own messages plus any messages received by its Auxiliary
interface onto the ID-NET™ interface. The Master passes all messages to the Host.
When One Shot or Phase Mode operating mode is used, the reader can be activated by an
External Trigger (photoelectric sensor) when the object enters its reading zone.

6.3 ID-NET™
(21x-x0x and 21x-x1x models)
The ID-NET™ connection is used to collect data from several readers to build a multi-point or
a multi-sided reading system; there can be one master and up to 31 slaves connected
together.
The slave readers are connected together using the ID-NET™ interface. Every slave reader
must have an ID-NET™ address in the range 1-31.
The master reader is also connected to the Host on the RS232/RS485 main serial interface.
For a Master/Slave Synchronized layout the External Trigger signal is unique to the system;
there is a single reading phase and a single message from the master reader to the Host
computer. It is not necessary to bring the External Trigger signal to all the readers.
In the Master/Slave Synchronized layout the Master operating mode can only be set to
Phase Mode.
The main, auxiliary, and ID-NET™ interfaces are connected as shown in the figure below.

(21x-x0x and 21x-x1x models)
This interface is provided for backward compatibility. We recommend using
the more efficient ID-NET™ network for Master/Slave or Multiplexer layouts.
NOTE
The RS232 master/slave connection is used to collect data from several readers to build either
a multi-point or a multi-sided reading system; there can be one master and up to 9 slaves
connected together.
The Slave readers use RS232 only on the main and auxiliary serial interfaces. Each slave
reader transmits the messages received by the auxiliary interface onto the main interface. All
messages will be passed through this chain to the Master.
The Master reader is connected to the Host on the RS232/RS485 main serial interface.
There is a single reading phase and a single message from the master reader to the Host
computer.
In this layout the Master operating mode can be set only to Phase Mode.
The Phase ON/OFF signals must be brought only to the Master. It is not necessary to
bring them to the Slave readers.

7.1 MAXIMUM LINE SPEED CALCULATION
The Exposure Time (or Shutter) parameter defines the time during which the image will be
exposed to the reader sensor to be acquired. This parameter depends heavily on the
environmental conditions (external lighting, image contrast etc.).
In general, a longer time corresponds to a lighter image but is susceptible to blurring due to
the code movement; a shorter exposure time corresponds to a darker image.
NOTE
The following considerations must be applied only when the internal lighting
system and 2D codes are used. The Maximum line speed allowed for linear
codes or postal code reading applications heavily depends on the direction
of symbol movement. When the direction of movement is parallel to the
elements of the code, the maximum speed is greater.
Assuming:
X: Code Resolution (mm)
Texp: Exposure Time (s)
LS: Line Speed (mm/s)
The essential condition to avoid blurring effects between two adjacent elements in a dynamic
reading application is:
LS x Texp
X
The maximum (theoretical) line speed (LS) can be calculated as follows:
X / Texp (min) = LS (max)
Texp (min) is the minimum Exposure Time value obtainable for the specific application. It
can be evaluated in static reading conditions and may depend on code printing quality,
reader position, etc.
Using the formulas previously explained it is possible to calculate the theoretical maximum
line (target) speed expected for the application, based on the maximum code resolution and
the minimum suitable Exposure Time value.
The minimum Exposure Time value depends on the Matrix reader model selected for the
application (reading distance) and on external lighting.
96
READING FEATURES
7
The Internal Lighting Mode parameter allows to set the operating mode of the internal
lighting system. The possible values are:
Disabled: the built-in lighting system is turned off all the time. This option can be useful
only if external lighting is sufficient;
Always ON: the built-in lighting system is turned on all the time at the lowest power level.
This option is useful if the lighting system blinking (Strobed operating mode) disturbs the
operator.
Very High/High/Medium-Power Strobed: the built-in lighting system is on only during the
image exposure time. Three different lighting levels can be set.
NOTE
To avoid LED array overheating, for Power Strobed settings, the program
automatically limits the range of allowed values for the Exposure Time
parameter. Therefore, after changes to Internal Lighting Mode, recheck
Exposure Time.
CAUTION:
The maximum target speed in the application is affected by these conditions:
Code/Background Contrast: maximum speed decreases when decreasing image
contrast (poor quality codes, reflective transparent coverings, different supports and
printing techniques).
Code Resolution: maximum speed increases when decreasing code resolution (there is
a decrement of overlapping effects between two adjacent elements).
Tilt Angle: maximum speed decreases when increasing Tilt angle (from 0 to 45
degrees).

Calibration
VisiSet™ provides a Calibration Tool to maximize the reading performance by tuning the
acquisition parameters and the time of the delayed triggers.
By selecting the Calibration Tool from the VisiSet™ Main Menu (F), the following window
appears together with the Parameter Setup window:
Figure 114 - Calibration OK
This tool provides a "real-time" image display while Matrix 210™ is reading. It also gives
immediate results on the performance of the installed Matrix 210™ reader.
If Self Tuning is enabled, the Calibration Tool window indicates the region where the
calibration algorithm is performed: it is within the central box delimited by four red dots.
NOTE
If using Region Of Interest windowing, some or all of the four red dots
delimiting the calibration algorithm area may be located outside the
VisiSet™ display area (not visible).
109
MATRIX 210™ REFERENCE MANUAL

The Parameter Setup window works in Interactive Mode in order to cause each parameter
setting to be immediately effective.
NOTE
If you want to save the temporary configuration to permanent memory, you
must first close the Calibration Tool window. Then, you must disable the
Interactive Mode and select the Permanent Memory option from the Send
Configuration item in the Device menu.
The following examples show some of the typical conditions occurring during the installation:
Under-exposure:
To correct this result it is recommended to change the following parameters in their order of
appearance:
1. increase the Exposure Time
2. increase the Gain
In general, a longer exposure time corresponds to a lighter image but is
susceptible to blurring due to code movement. Exposure time is also limited
by the Internal Lighting mode parameter. Longer exposure times can be
set if the power strobe level is lowered.
NOTE
High gain settings may produce a grainy image that may affect the
decoding process.

Multi Image Acquisition Settings
When controlled variable conditions occur in the application, Multiple Image Acquisition
Settings (up to 10), can be defined to create a database of parameter groups that handle
each specific application condition. This database of pre-defined settings functions cyclically
and therefore automatically improves system flexibility and readiness.
For example, an application may have two stable but different lighting conditions which
require different lighting options. One Image Acquisition Setting could enable and use the
internal illuminator and a second setting could disable Internal Lighting to use external
lighting. These two groups will be used cyclically on each acquisition in order to automatically
capture the correctly lighted image.
Image Acquisition Settings are found in the VisiSet™ Calibration parameter setup menu.
By selecting a different number and enabling its Status you can define the parameters for a
new group.
8.4.5
Run Time Self Tuning (RTST)
Run Time Self-Tuning (RTST) increases Matrix’s flexibility in the presence of uncontrolled
variable conditions (lighting, code contrast, etc.) by automatically adjusting its acquisition
parameters.
Self Tuning Calibration
In the Calibration parameter setup menu, the Self Tuning parameters manage the Image
Acquisition Setting parameters dynamically. Self Tuning provides automatic adjustment in
run time of different acquisition parameters (Exposure Time and/or Gain) for each captured
image based on calculations performed on previous acquisitions. These dynamic settings will
be used instead of the static settings saved in memory.
For more details see the Matrix 210™ Help On-Line.
Self Tuning Image Processing
In the Image Processing parameter setup menu, the Self Tuning parameters manage the
Image Processing and Symbology related parameters. They perform different processing
attempts on the same captured image according to the selected Self Tuning Mode parameter
value: (Symbologies Only, Processing Modes Only, Decoding Methods Only, Code Contrast
Levels Only, Image Mirroring Only, or General Purpose).

8.4.6
Region Of Interest Windowing
In order to satisfy very high throughput applications, higher frame rates can be achieved
using the powerful Region Of Interest Windowing parameters in the Calibration parameter
setup menu.
Region Of Interest Windowing allows defining a region or window within the reader FOV.
The Top, Bottom, Left and Right parameters allow to precisely define the image window to
be processed, visualized and saved.
In Matrix 210™ the frame rate is dependent on the number of rows and columns in the
defined window.
The smaller the window, the lower the frame period and consequently the higher the frame
rate. In general the Image Processing time can be reduced by reducing the window
dimensions.

GLOSSARY
AIM
(Association for Automatic Identification and Mobility): AIM Global is the international trade
association representing automatic identification and mobility technology solution providers.
AIM DPM Quality Guideline
Standard applicable to the symbol quality assessment of direct part marking (DPM)
performed in using two-dimensional bar code symbols. It defines modifications to the
measurement and grading of several symbol quality parameters.
AS9132
Standard defining uniform quality and technical requirements for direct part marking (DPM)
using Data Matrix symbologies.
Barcodes (1D Codes)
A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric data
in machine-readable form. The general format of a barcode symbol consists of a leading
margin, start character, data or message character, check character (if any), stop character,
and trailing margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses its own unique
format.
BIOS
Basic Input Output System. A collection of ROM-based code with a standard API used to
interface with standard PC hardware.
Bit
Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits
compose one byte of data. The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its
meaning.
Bits per Second (bps)
Number of bits transmitted or received per second.
Byte
On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in a pattern to
represent a specific character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through
7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in memory can be used to store one ASCII character.
Composite Symbologies
Consist of a linear component, which encodes the item's primary data, and an adjacent 2D
composite component, which encodes supplementary data to the linear component.
Dark Field Illumination
Lighting of surfaces at low angles used to avoid direct reflection of the light in the reader’s
lens.
Decode
To recognize a barcode symbology (e.g., Codabar, Code 128, Code 3 of 9, UPC/EAN, etc.)
and analyze the content of the barcode scanned.
127
Depth of Field
The difference between the minimum and the maximum distance of the object in the field of
view that appears to be in focus.
Diffused Illumination
Distributed soft lighting from a wide variety of angles used to eliminate shadows and direct
reflection effects from highly reflective surfaces.
Direct Part Mark (DPM)
A symbol marked on an object using specific techniques like dot peening, laser etching,
chemical etching, etc.
EEPROM
Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. An on-board non-volatile memory
chip.
Element
The basic unit of data encoding in a 1D or 2D symbol. A single bar, space, cell, dot.
Exposure Time
For digital cameras based on image sensors equipped with an electronic shutter, it defines
the time during which the image will be exposed to the sensor to be acquired.
Flash
Non-volatile memory for storing application and configuration files.
Host
A computer that serves other terminals in a network, providing services such as network
control, database access, special programs, supervisory programs, or programming
languages.
Image Processing
Any form of information processing for which the input is an image and the output is for
instance a set of features of the image.
Image Resolution
The number of rows and columns of pixels in an image. The total number of pixels of an
image sensor.
Image Sensor
Device converting a visual image to an electric signal. It is usually an array of CCD (Charge
Coupled Devices) or CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) pixel sensors.
IEC
(International Electrotechnical Commission): Global organization that publishes international
standards for electrical, electronic, and other technologies.
IP Address
The terminal’s network address. Networks use IP addresses to determine where to send
data that is being transmitted over a network. An IP address is a 32-bit number referred to as
a series of 8-bit numbers in decimal dot notation (e.g., 130.24.34.03). The highest 8-bit
number you can use is 254.
128
ISO
(International Organization for Standardization): A network of the national standards
institutes of several countries producing world-wide industrial and commercial standards.
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
A low power electronic light source commonly used as an indicator light. It uses less power
than an incandescent light bulb but more than a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
LED Illuminator
LED technology used as an extended lighting source in which extra optics added to the chip
allow it to emit a complex radiated light pattern.
Matrix Symbologies (2D Codes)
An arrangement of regular polygon shaped cells where the center-to-center distance of
adjacent elements is uniform. Matrix symbols may include recognition patterns which do not
follow the same rules as the other elements within the symbol.
Multidrop
A communication protocol for connecting two or more readers in a network with a
concentrator (or controller) and characterized by the use of individual device addresses.
Multi-row (or Stacked) Symbologies
Symbologies where a long symbol is broken into sections and stacked one upon another
similar to sentences in a paragraph.
RAM
Random Access Memory. Data in RAM can be accessed in random order, and quickly
written and read.
Symbol Verification
The act of processing a code to determine whether or not it meets specific requirements.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
A suite of standard network protocols that were originally used in UNIX environments but are
now used in many others. The TCP governs sequenced data; the IP governs packet
forwarding. TCP/IP is the primary protocol that defines the Internet.
