Description

Technical Field of the Invention



[0001] The invention relates to the technology of two-dimensional code scan head, especially a scan head's aiming beam exposure solution system.

Background of the Invention



[0002] As the mobile Internet and the logistics industry are flourishing, the one-dimensional code and the two-dimensional code, whichever it is in work or life, are available everywhere; therefore a higher requirement on the scan head technology is proposed, and thence the requirements on its decoding definition, stability, low power consumption, identification rate and identification speed are becoming stricter.

[0003] In the existing two-dimensional code scan head solutions, the camera is adopted to work with the supplementary lamp and the aiming lamp; wherein the camera is used to decode, the supplementary lamp is used to provide supplementary lighting, and the aiming lamp is used to guide the operator to scan code. According to the usual use, the supplementary lamp and the aiming lamp are required to switch on concurrently when starting the camera. However, such scan head has the following shortcomings, i.e.: the aiming beam must aim at the one-dimensional code or the two-dimensional code; whereas the aiming lamp, when as a positioning guide, has a small-area light source, and may cover the one-dimensional or two-dimensional code to be identified in most cases; therefore the partial exposure may form when the camera decodes the code; however the job of decoding code needs clear image or picture, whereas the overexposure will cause great influence on the decoding accuracy, stability, identification, decoding speed and power consumption of the scan head.

Detailed Description of the Invention



[0004] It is an object of this invention to provide a scan head's aiming beam exposure solution system so as to solve the problems that were mentioned in the background of the invention aforesaid.

A scan head's aiming beam exposure solution system, comprising the control circuit of the aiming lamp, which is composed of 5 pins, wherein the pin 1 and 2 are the input terminal of the gate circuit, and the pin 4 is the output terminal of the NOT gate circuit, the pin 5 of the control circuit is connected with the high level Vcc, and the pin 3 of the control circuit is grounded; the pin 1 and 2 of the control circuit are connected with the scanning signal and the field sync signal respectively, the field sync signal is connected with the resistor R1 and is grounded thereof; the pin 4 of the control circuit is connected with the grid electrode of the field effect transistor; the drain electrode of the field effect transistor is connected with the high level Vcc; the source electrode of the field effect transistor is connected with the resistor R2 and the light-emitting diode respectively, and is grounded thereof.

[0006] As a detailed proposal of the invention, the field effect transistor is a N-type MOS tube.

[0007] As a detailed proposal of the invention, the control circuit is a U1 controller.

[0008] Compared with the existing technology, there are advantageous effects in the invention that:
  1. 1. This scan head's aiming beam exposure solution system makes use of the camera to drive to output the field sync signal (vsync) and input the field sync signal to the control circuit, where the control circuit separates the start point and the end point of the blanking time of the field sync signal, where the start point is the start signal of the aiming lamp, and the end point is the closing signal of the aiming lamp. The decoding process of the camera completes within the time of the effective picture zone of the field sync signal; if so, the decoding time of the camera and the lightening time of the aiming lamp are completely separated to avoid the local overexposure caused by aiming beam.
  2. 2. The scan head's aiming beam exposure solution system, compared with the existing scan heads on the market, can completely solve the local overexposure problem of the aiming beam, hugely improve the decoding accuracy, stability, identification rate, decoding speed and power consumption of the scan head, and additionally realize cost-effectiveness easily.
