January 2, 2013 - Suited for automation environments, MINI HAWK Xi and MS-4Xi imagers use X-Mode decode algorithms to read nearly any 1D/2D symbol, including damaged, distorted, or difficult low-contrast codes, as well as direct part marks. Both units have 10–30 Vdc power requirements, optoisolated I/O, and RJ45 and M12 connectors, and MINI HAWK Xi includes autofocus as well as high-speed and high-resolution configurations. Both imagers offer flexible positioning in tight spaces.

Microscan Introduces the Smallest Imagers Available with Embedded Ethernet


RENTON, WA – Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, introduces the new Xi series of miniature barcode readers: the smallest, most lightweight imagers available with embedded Ethernet. The MINI HAWK Xi and MS-4Xi imagers are ideal barcode reading solutions for almost any automation environment, with powerful decode algorithms to read nearly any1D/2D symbol, including the most challenging direct part marks (DPM). Both products feature 10 to 30 VDC power requirements, optoisolated I/O, and RJ45 and M12 connectors, along with compatibility with Microscan’s full line of industrial M12 accessories.

The Xi series imagers feature Microscan’s industry-leading X-Mode decode algorithms for reading damaged, distorted, or difficult low contrast codes, including direct part marks such as dot peen and laser/ chemical etch. In addition to the most aggressive decoding available, X-Mode technology provides easy setup and deployment in nearly any automation application. The MINI HAWK Xi additionally includes autofocus, and both high speed and high resolution configurations.

Both imagers are ultra-compact and lightweight for flexible positioning in tight spaces. The right angle mirror option and corner-exit cable are specifically designed to conserve cubic space for the tightest fit possible within instrumentation and equipment, or for mounting into robotic applications. The Xi imagers also include visible LED indicators, targeting laser pattern, “good read” green flash, and an EZ button for instant setup and configuration.
