Superior long reading distance

Sleek and lightweight, the MS830 withstands multiple 5-feet drops onto concrete floor, thanks to its surrounding rubber nose and bumper. Its high speed scanning, low power consumption and effective depth of field, make the MS830 series suitable for a wide range of applications. Furthermore, our powerful decoder allows data to be edited and formatted before it is sent to the host, which saves time and money by making software changes unecessary.
