The HS-41X is a compact handheld imager for decoding low-contrast 2D symbols on substrates such as sheet metals, castings, plastics, and electronic components. Its dual field optics are optimized to read both linear barcodes and 2D symbols, including challenging marks such as those created by direct part mark (DPM) methods such as dot peen and laser/chemical etch. Integrated with Microscan’s industry-leading X-Mode decode algorithms and innovative bright-field lighting, the HS-41X handheld is best in its class for DPM reading. This imager is also disinfectant-ready, dust & water resistant, and features an IP54-rated enclosure, making it the ideal portable reading solution for any automated data application from clean rooms to industrial environments.
Microscan offers handheld barcode readers for applications ranging from linear barcodes up to the most challenging 2D direct part marks. The introduction of the HS-41X expands Microscan’s product portfolio for standard applications, complementing its existing line of specialty handheld barcode imagers designed for more challenging DPM reading.
