Omron Microscan Systems: Barcode Reader

Barcode reading and machine vision manufacturer Omron Microscan Systems introduces two new industrial code readers: the HS-360X, an ultra-rugged DPM handheld fit for automotive and heavy industrial applications, and the MicroHAWK ID-45 (shown), for DPM applications in electronics and medical device manufacturing.

Both readers are optimized to capture the most challenging Direct Part Marks (DPMs) on all sorts of surfaces. Curved, shiny and irregular substrates pose zero problems for the advanced X-Mode decoding algorithms inside the HS-360X and the MicroHAWK ID-45. Decoding speed is rapid-fire for dot-peened, laser-etched and ink-jetted codes regardless of size, density or contrast.

Operators gain increased flexibility and easy setup through WebLinkPC, which is also the force behind the ID-45's intuitive plug-and-play setup. The reader integrates into production lines for electronics, medical device manufacturing and similar industries, while its array of 24 LEDs makes it brighter than previous generations of MicroHAWK. TRUE Autofocus and X-Mode technology allow it to decode poorly printed and damaged codes with ease in all sorts of settings, including metal cavities.
