The iVu Plus Gen 2 is a new hardware platform developed to provide customers with more inspection capabilities now and into the future. The sensor looks the same and delivers the same intuitive interface and functionality of the previous generation iVu sensor, but now offers expended capabilities to solve a wider range of applications.

All iVu Plus TG Gen 2 sensors offer the option for a full resolution inspection capability to better detect small features. All iVu Plus BCR Gen 2 models offer a coarse mode option that can provide significantly faster barcode read rates, especially for 2D barcodes. This new platform also provides capability for future development of new features so the iVu can continue to improve and address even more customer needs.

It is important to note that while the Gen 2 models offer all of the above options, the default settings match the previous generation so customers have the option to run inspections the same as they always have.
