Metrologic Instruments, Inc. has 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 features maximise productivity and customer satisfaction.
The IS1650 is ideal for scanning bar codes related to self-vending, ID and boarding-pass verification, shipping/receiving, bill payments, access control and 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 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 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, 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 symbolises Metrologic's four-decade commitment to producing advanced and reliable bar code scanning technology.
