HS-51 and HS-51X: New Wireless Barcode Readers From Microscan

Posted December 4, 2013

Microscan HS-51 ScannerMicroscan has announced two new wireless handheld imager additions to their extensive product offering. The HS-51 and HS-51X handhelds are ideal portable reading solutions for almost any 1D/2D symbol, with a compact and durable design to withstand multiple drops from 6 feet. They combine advanced decode algorithms and dual field optics with user-friendly features and the convenience of Bluetooth wireless connectivity.

The HS-51 and HS-51X imagers are equipped with a 1.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and dual field optics to provide reliable reading of codes ranging from large 1D barcodes to tiny high density 2D symbols. The HS-51 is an excellent portable solution for decoding 1D/2D symbols in common applications such as high-contrast, black and white labels. The HS-51X additionally includes Microscan’s industry-leading X-Mode decode algorithms and innovative bright field lighting for reading difficult, low-contrast codes, including direct part marks (DPM) such as dot peen and laser/chemical etch.

Both imagers are ergonomically designed for comfort in repetitive and heavy duty applications, and feature visual and vibrating indicators to provide confirmation of successful reads in noisy or sensitive environments. The durable IP54 enclosure protects all sensitive components and can easily withstand even harsh chemical-based cleaners. The units include a 1300 milliamp Lithium-ion battery with a life up to 50,000 reads, and 32 MB of non-volatile memory. The compatible charging station transmits and receives data over a Bluetooth link and includes LED indicators and a paging button to locate a misplaced imager.

Microscan offers handheld barcode readers for all applications, ranging from easy linear barcodes up to the most challenging 2D direct part marks. The introduction of the wireless HS-51 and HS-51X imagers expands Microscan’s product offering for standard applications, complementing its existing line of specialty handheld barcode imagers designed for more challenging DPM applications.
