Miniaturized Industrial Barcode Readers
The MINI HAWK Xi and MS-4Xi imagers are available with embedded Ethernet.
Said by the company to be the smallest, most lightweight imagers available with embedded Ethernet, these units are suitable barcode reading solutions for almost any automation environment, with decode algorithms to read nearly any 1D/2D symbol, including direct part marks (DPM). Both products feature 10 to 30 VDC power requirements, optoisolated I/O, and RJ45 and M12 connectors, along with compatibility with the company's full line of industrial M12 accessories. The imagers feature X-Mode decode algorithms for reading damaged, distorted or difficult low-contrast codes, including direct part marks such as dot peen and laser/chemical etch. In addition to the most aggressive decoding available, X-Mode technology provides easy setup and deployment in nearly any automation application. The MINI HAWK Xi additionally includes autofocus, and both high-speed and high-resolution configurations. Both imagers are very compact and lightweight for flexible positioning in tight spaces. The right angle mirror option and corner-exit cable are designed specifically to conserve cubic space for the tightest fit possible within instrumentation and equipment, or for mounting into robotic applications. The imagers also include visible LED indicators, targeting laser pattern, "good read" green flash, and an EZ button for instant setup and configuration.
