Access IS has introduced a barcode imager designed to fit quickly and easily into public kiosks, visitor turnstiles at events, and retail point-of-sale equipment.
The rugged, waterproof construction of the LSR106 makes it suitable for indoor or outdoor use. It reads 2D barcodes on personal digital assistants (PDAs), mobile phones or paper documents and captures data in less than a second. Four threaded brass inserts make it easy to install without additional hardware and it is easily removed when equipment needs servicing. The LSR106 does not need to be shrouded to prevent internal reflections, which simplifies product design, and its impact-resistant glass window is sealed in place to prevent the ingress of dust or other contamination.
The demand for mobile barcodes is growing quickly. Sending tickets and vouchers to mobile phones for redemption at kiosks, turnstiles and counters reduces operating costs and is convenient for consumers. Vouchers and coupons sent to mobile phones can also be used to increase retail sales through sales promotions.
The LSR106 is configured for different data formats via a serial RS-232 or USB interface, depending on the model. When operated in interactive mode, it can be controlled by the application running on the host IT system to give user feedback.
The device reads 2D, PDF417 and linear barcodes and is software upgradeable.
