Reliable Barcode Reading on Shiny Surfaces with Microscan’s MicroHAWK Series

Posted June 17, 2016

Microscan MicroHAWK ID-40 Fixed Mount Barcode ScannersBarcodes on highly-reflective surfaces and transparent materials can be difficult to read. Specular reflections ”blind” barcode readers, causing no-reads. With the new Diffuser and Polarizer optical filters for MicroHAWK Barcode Readers (ID-20ID-30 ID-40), unwanted light is easily filtered out.

  • The Diffuser: Softens the background light around the barcode to minimize noise and reflections
  • The Polarizer: Eliminates “hot spots” caused by reflections.

No matter the application or difficulty, Microscan has a scanning solution to capture any barcode.
