Generally our LDS-V2 (Light Delivery System) Optic is used when surfaces are smooth and the
etched area is recessed or roughened. The concept is much like
the use of a flashlight held parallel to the floor, showing every
crumb and surface scratch as a shadow. With this scheme, the actual
mark usually appears as a white mark on a black background. There
are cases where the etched mark only needs to be causing the surface
to be a different finish to use this method.
We have found
selected cases where a target can be read with either style of
optics due to selected properties of the material that is etched.
Both styles of optics may also use specialty guides customized by us
to assure the correct positioning of the scanner relative to the
object, to make it easy to use.
Due to the
integrated aspects of our optics with the scanning device, our
optics are not available by themselves, but rather as a component to
a complete system solution. If you are interested in purchasing this
design of optic or
a different one you must couple it with a scanner or portable
