MS-4 Ultra-Compact Barcode Sensor

MS-4 Ultra-Compact Barcode Sensor

The MS-4 barcode sensor is designed specifically for embedded barcode applications. Currently the world’s smallest high resolution barcode sensor, the MS-4’s ultra-compact size and wide angle optics provide the widest field of view available for reading any symbol at close range.

It is the ideal barcode sensor for OEM design engineers who need to read 2D symbols in tight spaces with 100% data integrity.

Compact & Lightweight:
  The MS-4 is the world’s smallest high performance barcode sensor. Its small form allows flexible positioning in tight spaces. The lightweight and durable magnesium alloy case weighs less than 2 oz.

Wide Field of View:  The MS-4 has an extremely wide field of view and reads linear codes or 2D symbols as close as 1” (25 mm).

Omnidirectional Reading:  Linear codes or 2D symbols can be decoded in any orientation.  The MS-4 removes the restriction of planning for laser line alignment.

Mounting Flexibility:  The MS-4’s compact size, right angle mirror option, and corner-exit cable conserve cubic space to create the tightest fit possible within instrumentation and equipment.

Real-time Controls:
  The inputs include a trigger signal, a “new master” input, and a programmable input for resetting counters or releasing outputs. The outputs can be configured to activate upon a variety of conditions including matchcode and diagnostic operations.
