Marvis - One suite to ensure your DPM traceability

Lighter Suite is the all-inclusive editing and laser management software for all Datalogic Laser Marking products.

Lighter Suite with its innovative approach focused on the user experience is revolutionizing Laser Marking management; the powerful and simple interface, the flexible and comprehensive customization capabilities and effective production tools represent an important step-ahead in traceability and branding industrial applications.

LIGHTER Suite combines into an unified GUI (Graphical User Interface) a powerful vectorial graphical editor, an advanced laser controller and the innovative MARVIS™ (MArk Read Verify Integrated Solution) feature to seamless interact with AutoID code reader for in-line validation of marked traceability codes.MARVIS™ connects any Datalogic MATRIX N-series reader with any laser marker, enabling controlling from one single interface and enhancing individual products’ performances.

The LIGHTER Suite allows OEMs and Machine builders to develop a complete and cost effective Laser Marking Station, based on embedded hardware and software resources (such as STAND ALONE mode) or to design an advanced Laser Marking Solution able to control machinery over a simple Ethernet connection with a supervisor computer (MASTER-SLAVE mode). Lighter Suite natively embeds Ethernet TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP protocols.

The LIGHTER Suite integrates the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) providing the users with a full set of tools to be used for extremely flexible customization. The programming language is ECMAScript (also called JavaScript).

MARVIS is also available as update for existing products.
