November 6, 2012 - Equipped with 1.2 MP CMOS sensor and dual field optics, Models HS-21 and HS-41X read codes ranging from large 1D barcodes to tiny high-density 2D symbols. HS-21 offers portable solution for decoding linear barcodes and 2D symbols in common applications such as high-contrast black and white labels, while HS-41X additionally includes X-Mode decode algorithms and bright field lighting for difficult low-contrast codes. Both IP54-rated units have visual/vibrating indicators for confirmation of reads.

Press release date: October 30, 2012

RENTON, WA, – Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces two new handheld barcode readers. The HS-21 and HS-41X handhelds are ideal portable reading solutions for almost any 1D/2D symbol, with a compact and durable design to withstand multiple drops from 6 feet. Both products are equipped with a 1.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and dual field optics to provide reliable reading of codes ranging from large 1D barcodes to tiny high density 2D symbols.

The HS-21 and HS-41X imagers are ideal for any high-contrast automated data application from clean rooms to industrial environments. The HS-21 is an excellent portable solution for decoding both linear barcodes and 2D symbols in common applications such as high-contrast black and white labels. The HS-41X additionally includes Microscan’s industry-leading X-Mode decode algorithms and innovative bright field lighting for reading difficult low contrast codes, including direct part marks (DPM) such as dot peen and laser/chemical etch.

Both imagers are ergonomically designed for comfort in repetitive and heavy duty applications, and feature visual and vibrating indicators to provide confirmation of successful reads in noisy or sensitive environments. The IP54-rated enclosure protects all sensitive components and is easily cleaned by common hospital disinfectants for use in healthcare applications. Compatible accessories include a presentation stand with a flexible neck to use the readers in their motion detecting presentation mode.

Microscan offers handheld barcode readers for all applications, ranging from easy linear barcodes up to the most challenging 2D direct part marks. The introduction of the HS-21 and HS-41X expands Microscan’s product offering for standard applications, complementing its existing line of specialty handheld barcode imagers designed for more challenging DPM applications.
