Microscan - 2D Barcode Reader - MINI Hawk Imager

MINI Hawk imagers pack aggressive direct part mark (DPM) reading algorithms into a miniature imager that is both powerful and easy to use for barcode and 2D track, trace and control applications. Aggressive decoding is ensured through X-Mode technology, which reads damaged or difï¬Âcult symbols with no conï¬Âguration or setup required.

With multiple resolutions and high speed conï¬Âgurations available, there is a MINI Hawk imager to solve virtually any challenging application.

Decode Any Symbol:  The MINI Hawk consistently reads damaged, distorted or otherwise challenging direct part marks with our patented decode algorithms.

Autofocus:  For real time dynamic autofocus, position the symbol at the center of the field of view, and push the EZ button. The MINI Hawk automatically adjusts focal distance and sets internal parameters to optimize the symbol.

Wide Field of View:  Read symbols as large as 2” (50.8 mm) square as close as 1” (25.4 mm) with diffractive field illumination and optional right angle mirror.

X–Mode Technology:  In addition to the most aggressive decoding available, X-Mode technology provides easy setup and deployment of the MINI Hawk in any application.

Compact and Lightweight:  Miniature form factor fits easily in tight spaces, and is lightweight for mounting into robotic applications.
