ProScan introduces general purpose laser scanning


ProScan Distribution has introduced the Datalogic QuickScan L bar code scanner with laser technology, which is an entry-level and affordable solution for general purpose users who need to read bar codes at varying distances.

This scanner is lightweight and small with an ergonomic form factor, which provides the user with ease of scanning during daily operations. Suitable for retail and office applications, the QuickScan L reader provides delivers rapid performance and is capable of reading a wide range of bar codes, including the majority of 1D and GS1 codes.
The wider than usual scan angle allows users to read a longer bar code from a shorter distance. The gun shaped ergonomic design is comfortable to use, and the scanner only weighs 128 grams (without the cable).
Andrew Fosbrook, group MD of ProScan, comments: "The QuickScan L reader has been designed with durability in the workplace. It meets the IP42 sealing rating (against dust and liquid spills) and has a 1.5 m drop specification. This scanner also has a greater than 1-million duty cycle trigger specification, as well as sustainable 20 kV of Electro Static Discharge (ESD). These are the best class specifications of any product on the market.
"One of the most vulnerable features of any scanner is damage to the scanner window. When such incidents happened in the past, the scanner would have to be replaced. The QuickScan L reader was specially designed so that the end user can order a replacement window pack and replace the damaged window without having to send the scanner in for repairs."
