For reading optical information arranged on a target object by analyzing an image of the target object captured through an imaging device, a plurality of blocks are disposed in an area of the image in which the optical information is arranged such that the plurality of blocks cover a whole range in the arrangement direction of the optical information, each of the blocks being in a parallelogram shape in which facing two sides are in parallel with a pixel arrangement direction of the image and the other two sides are vertical to the arrangement direction of the optical information, a first arrangement data indicating arrangement of the optical information in the block is generated for each of the blocks based on the image data of the block, and a second arrangement data indicating arrangement of the whole optical information is generated by combining the generated respective first arrangement data.


To prevent misreading of barcodes and to allow accurate outputting of bar data even when an element is damaged or blurred. An optical information reading device contains a computation means 23 a for adding widths of 6 elements containing a bar and a space that are adjacent within one character to derive respective patterns of 2- through n-element added widths and for converting each of the patterns of 2- through n-element added widths into the module number for one character to obtain the module numbers of the patterns of the 2- through n-element added widths; an extraction means 23b for narrowing down the target characters to extract a candidate character wherein the target character is that each module number of the 2- through n-element widths is an integer with an error equal to or less than 1; and a search means 23d for comparing the extracted candidate character, having the module numbers of the patterns of the 2- through n-element added widths with the expected value character for evaluating the candidate character to search for an expected value character with the strongest correlation to the candidate character.

In a barcode reader, a sensor controller sets time of one frame of a line image sensor based on output time necessary for data output of one frame from the line image sensor and lighting time of an LED. A light source controller performs first lighting control to turn on the LED only for the lighting time after termination of the data output within the time of one frame, and second lighting control to turn on the LED only for the lighting time so as to include the entire period of the data output within the time of one frame.

To allow a code scanner to be set by sending a menu command from PC to a code scanner using an interface of USB-HID. HID host and the code scanner are connected to each other through an interface of USB-HID. On the assumption of this, the HID host creates send data D3 based on plural pieces of status information (information containing ON or OFF status of Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock) and sends the created send data D3 to the code scanner. This enables the code scanner to receive various kinds of setting by the send data D3 which is sent from the HID host even if the interface is USB-HID.

In an optical information reader controlled by this controller, a laser beam originating in light emitted by a laser diode is reflected by a scan mirror to scan optical information of a bar code or the like, reflected light therefrom is received by a photodiode to be converted to an electrical signal, and the optical information is read by processing the signal. In the controller, a main amp having a characteristic that a gain changes according to a frequency of an input signal amplifies the electrical signal, a detector detects an analog signal resulting from the amplification, and from a. detection output thereof, a MPU (on/off frequency control circuit) detects level of the analog signal and adjusts the gain of the main amp by changing an on/off frequency of the laser diode caused by an APC circuit (light emission on/off circuit), according to the detected level.

A collimator lens unit in which an aperture limit stop formation member and a collimator lens are integrally disposed in a cylindrical member is inserted in a lens-barrel hole of the module casing so as to be reciprocatable in an optical axis direction, and a light-emitting unit is fixed in the lens-barrel hole, with an optical axis of a light source aligned with an optical axis of the collimator lens. A long hole through which an adjust pin is penetrated so as to be reciprocatable in the optical axis direction is formed in a peripheral sidewall of the lens-barrel hole, and a fitting portion in which the adjust pin is fit is formed in an outer peripheral surface of the cylindrical member. On an inner peripheral surface of the lens-barrel hole, at a position opposed to the fitting portion, bearing portions in contact with the outer peripheral surface of the cylindrical member are formed.

Plural input formats of information are set in advance, information in a read-in area is read as input information, and from input information which matches one of the set input formats among the read input information, information of one or more items extracted based on the input format is registered as a read-in result of the one or more items in a read-in result table. When read-in results for all necessary items are registered in the read-in result table, the registered read-in results are read and outputted to a predetermined output destination device.
