This advanced barcode reader sets a new standard in reading all types of barcodes, including small labels and direct part marks on difficult surfaces. Most industrial handheld barcode readers lack the ability to automatically adjust settings to instantly read different types of barcodes at different distances. The barcode reader comes native with a predictive autofocus feature, allowing it to automatically adjust to different sizes, surfaces, and types of barcodes. This feature enables the barcode reader to automatically select the most suitable type and color of lighting to the type of barcode that is presented. Most handheld barcode readers require costly and complex traceability setup.
