The Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier is a type of scanner that can read compressed data containing unique identification codes (UID), which are required for U.S. military articles, assets, and parts. The U.S. Government, on July 30, 2003, announced the introduction of the MIL-SPEC 130 AND MIL-STD-139 unique identification coding methodologies. The government has made this system mandatory for all military articles for tracking purposes. These UID specifications enable complete tracking of all Department of Defense property for the full lifetime of each part or product. This tracking enables improved accounting for all assets while also maintaining improved security and safety.
With the introduction of these coding requirements, more accurate and easily accessible records can now be maintained by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Every contactor manufacturing under government assignment is subject to specific standards that require that each article is assigned a unique identification code. Many companies also choose to implement the use of verifiers to ensure proper compliance to all DoD specifications. The Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier provides one of the most thorough verification documentation available to government contractors and sub-contractors.
The Function of the Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier
The primary function of the Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier is to scan and read the unique code of each of the military articles. The Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier is also used for sequential testing to ten different lighting angles as specified in MIL-STD-130 guidelines. The Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier can read information on metals, rubber and plastic, but they must be marked with methods that achieve a high contrast with excellent legibility. Most often these higher quality marks may be performed with the use of programmable stylus markers, laser marking equipment, or high resolution inkjet printing. This verification and testing device is available as a portable machine, which can also be connected to a stationary workstation when required. The Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier also has various illuminated light options for more realistic testing ensuring greater compliance with DoD requirements. Operation of the Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier is easy and does not require users with elevated technical skills.
Compliance to all Department of Defense requirements is necessary for successful relationships between the U.S. Military and leading government contractors; or sub-contractors. Use of the Microscan UID DPM Compliance Verifier will make certain that products meet all MIL-SPEC-130 and MIL-STD-129 guidelines for a more successful identification application.
