Cobalt Sentinel has the ability to verify barcode quality on print and validate the data is correct and on case/pack/pallet post application.
The solution is now an integral part of all Nexus 20 print and apply systems having been condensed to create the Sentinel Onboard. With the Cobalt Sentinel onboard you can be assured that the Nexus systems will never apply a fail code.

Barcode veriﬁcation checks the quality and scannability of a barcode by examining the visual aspects of the code in-line with industry standards and specifications. ISO/IEC 15416 requires 7 attributes to be tested in up to 10 separate positions of each barcode to devise an alphabetic grading from A to D, or fail.
Cobalt Sentinel is our award-winning inline barcode verification system that verifies barcode quality on print and validates data on case, pack or pallet post-application. The solution is now an integral part of all Nexus 20 print and apply systems, having been condensed to create the Sentinel Onboard.
Sentinel is an integral part of the modern production line, managing the printing and application of labels to products.
Data input and outputs provide for a broad range of reactive activities including the operation of reject lanes, controlled line stoppage, reducing line speed and remote beacon further up-stream.
With an operator friendly interface, the status of barcode quality is shown through a beacon and on the main sentinel screen, allowing an informed decision to be made preventing unnecessary line stoppage.
