Metrologic Releases New Self-Contained Area Imager - The IS1650

BLACKWOOD, N.J., Oct. 2-- Metrologic Instruments, Inc. today announced the release of its self-contained area imager designed to provide easy, reliable and unmatched bar code scanning performance for fixed-mount applications, including self-service kiosks and point-of-service. The IS1650's unique set of features maximize productivity and customer satisfaction.

The IS1650 is ideal for scanning bar codes related to:
ID and boarding-pass verification
Bill payments
Access Control
Document Tracking

"With its advanced feature set, scanning one bar code or several becomes a simple and swift experience for self-service customers," said Hong Ji, product manager for Metrologic.

By combining patented FirstFlash(TM) technology with a high-resolution imaging sensor, the IS1650 delivers superior omnidirectional performance and decodes all standard 1D and 2D bar codes -- even those damaged, wrinkled or wrapped in clear plastic.

The IS1650 separates itself from the competition with Code Select(TM) technology, robust automatic activation and a powerful processor. These features give the IS1650 the ability to capture up to seven bar codes in a single flash and then decode them in any pre-determined order.

The IS1650 was designed with TotalFreedom(TM) , an open-system architecture which offers unlimited possibilities for developing value-added custom application modules embedded directly into the imager instead of the host.

Forward-illuminating design supports intuitive up-close scanning by eliminating the "dead zone" associated with most imagers. With six host-system interfaces to choose from, the IS1650 supports convenient plug-in-play integration. To ensure lasting reliability, the IS1650's encased internal structure has no moving parts.

Later this year, Metrologic expects to release a multipurpose version of the IS1650 for hand-held and hands-free applications. The IS1650 symbolizes Metrologic's four-decade commitment to producing advanced and reliable bar code scanning technology.
