Based on the excellent experience gathered with the DS2400 series, Datalogic has developed the new DS2400A compact extended range laser scanner. In fact the DS2400A combines the existing well-proven characteristics such as long distance reading, high scanning speed and very compact dimensions now with improved performance and additional features.
The DS2400A features the new Datalogic proprietary ACB(tm) Advanced Code Builder software, which is able to decode partially damaged or normally unreadable bar codes due to their high tilt angle, hence increasing the percentage of reads.
In addition to the medium and long-range models previously available, the new DS2400A is available with short-range optics, suitable when space is limited but an enhanced depth of field is required.
The motor can be turned ON and OFF via software commands according to the application needs, so as to increase product life. All DS2400A models can drive the new OM2000 oscillating mirror from Datalogic, and are equipped with a main interface which can be selected between RS232 or RS485.
With the new DS2400A it is possible to select the most suitable scanning speed (up to 1000 scans/s) for the particular application, according to bar code density and real reading conditions. This enhances system performance and improves the speed and quality of collected data, rendering the scanned information extremely reliable.
With its additional features and improved performance, the DS2400A grants improved productivity and more efficient processing in common warehouse, shop-floor and OEM applications. In particular, target applications in automated warehouses include: sorting on conveyors, label verification and picking systems. Typical automated shop-floor applications for the DS2400A include: item and part tracking, and packaging and compliance. In OEM applications it is suitable in automatic chemical and biomedical analysis machines and for print verification.
