The end of the 1980’s saw Saab-Automation develop analogue CCD cameras in addition to barcode scanners and tag readers for industrial use within various applications. These cameras: EVS120, EVS122 and EVS124 – were commonly used in the wood processing and automobile industries. Even microwave based RFID technology could be found in the product portfolio.
The 1990’s saw the acquisition of Saab Automation by Swiss Baumer Electric AG and the company in Sweden now becomes Baumer Ident AB. Baumer further developed these cameras to EVS128 and EVS134. Baumer invested much effort into widening their original RFID portfolio with additional systems, mainly 125kHz but also UHF based products.
During the 2000’s, Baumer Ident AB was sold to Identec Solutions AG who moved the business to Austria.
In 2010 former employees of Baumer and Saab decided to develop a new generation of digital cameras based on previous experience and know-how, unveiling a whole new range of digital cameras was ready by the autumn of 2013. To sell, market and develop the new product the company Ident System AB was registered at that same time and EVS138 and EVS144 were introduced and reached huge success within the paper industry. During 2016 Ident System AB launched the EVS144 Imager – a unique product for the market.
Parallel to this, a replacement that is fully compatible with Baumer/Identecs RFID system OIS-L has been developed and during 2015 a new UHF reader was launched.
In 2017 Identsystem started cooperation with Dobot regarding sales and distribution of robotic arms for education, hobby, test and the smaller industry.
Many involved throughout the years are partners in the company today. This has ensured that the product knowledge, development and expertise for RFID and code readers has been kept in a unique way enabling the ability to develop completely new products.
