Microscan Introduces the World’s Smallest Platform for Barcode Reading to Advanced Machine Vision

Posted July 12, 2016

Microscan MicroHAWK ID-40 Fixed Mount Barcode ScannersMicroscan has redefined imaging technology as a single, omni-capable platform for any automation task. With the scalability to accomplish basic to high-performance auto ID as well as simple to advanced machine vision in one, MicroHAWK offers the breadth of Microscan software and hardware options on the smallest smart camera suite ever developed. The MicroHAWK family includes a fully-integrated imaging engine and three industrial-rated miniature imagers with unrivaled flexibility, ease of use, and universal application potential.

A leader in the miniaturization of industrial data acquisition technologies, Microscan founded its company and namesake with the invention of the world’s smallest and fastest laser barcode scanner in 1982 (the MS-1000). With the ability to accomplish high-performance barcode reading in the most space-restricted instruments, Microscan quickly became the leading brand of embedded barcode readers for clinical applications and has remained committed to space-efficiency in the design of its products. When the company acquired Siemens’ Machine Vision business in 2008, Microscan combined the compact form factor of its products with new and vast machine vision inspection capabilities. Microscan released the world’s smallest smart camera (Vision MINI) on the award-winning AutoVISION Machine Vision platform and coined the term “Auto ID+” – the first technology to go beyond barcode reading to add basic inspection tasks such as counting, measurement, OCR, and more within a single, fully-integrated device.
