Microscan Introduces the Smallest Imagers Available with Embedded Ethernet
Press release date: Dec 13, 2012
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.
