The entry level scanner

The IDM12x is a cost-effective, flexible introductory model in the IDM1xx hand-held scanner series. The IDM12x is more than just a contact scanner compared to similar products. It can also identify bar codes up to 25 cm away and up to 120 mm wide. A scan rate of 300 scans per second not only reduces the required scan time but also increases throughput. The ergonomic design, its light weight of just 106 g, and various presentation modes make this device a top choice for users. The scanner meets enclosure rating IP 41 and can withstand multiple drops from a medium height. The device can be easily integrated into existing systems thanks to the variety of interfaces it supports, such as PS/2, USB, and RS-232. The combination of performance, durability, ease of use, and low cost make the IDM12x a great choice with the flexibility to carry out various simple tasks in fields such as point-of-sales, clinical analysis, and general office automation.
