MS-3 Compact Laser Barcode Scanner

MS-3 Compact Laser Barcode Scanner

  • IP54 Enclosure
  • Wide scan angle
  • High scan speed
  • Visible Indicators
  • Real time controls
  • Compact & lightweight
  • Decodes/second: up to 1000
  • Read Range: 2 to 10” (51 to 254 mm)
  • Wide Scan Angle
  • IP54 Enclosure 

The MS-3 laser barcode scanner offers the fastest read performance in embedded compact barcode scanners. The wide scan angle of 70 degrees is coupled with ultra-compact size and flexible mounting.

High performance and flexibility make the MS-3 the optimal choice for reliable reading in embedded instruments.

Compact & Lightweight: The 1.75” (44.5 mm) square by .85” (21.6 mm) tall scanner weighs only 2 ounces (57 g) for easy mounting onto robotic equipment or into tight spaces.

High Scan Speed:  Adjustable scan speed from 300 up to 1000 decodes per second and Microscan’s world-class decode algorithms ensure accurate reading every time.

Wide Scan Angle:  The wide scan angle of over 70 degrees and a factory customizable focal point add up to space savings within your system, allowing greater flexibility with positioning.

Visible Indicators:  Illuminated LEDs on top of the scanner provide visual confirmation of the scanner performance.

Real-time Controls:  The inputs include a trigger signal, a “new master” input, and a programmable input for resetting counters or releasing outputs. The outputs can be configured to activate upon a variety of conditions including matchcode and diagnostic operations.
