UHD Autofocus Barcode Readers



Microscan has introduced MicroHAWK ultra-high density (UHD) barcode readers with Autofocus. MicroHAWK UHD Autofocus cameras are equipped with a fully integrated liquid lens, and can decode symbols as small as 2 mil at a distance of 40 - 150 mm in any environment. "By integrating liquid lens Autofocus and UHD optics into the MicroHAWK, Microscan eliminates additional cost to the user, minimizes device size, reduces integration complexity and lessens the need for additional optical accessories," said a company spokesperson.

"Unlike other products that require special accessories to magnify small symbols, Microscan's UHD optics are fully integrated within the MicroHAWK's imaging system and have been custom designed to decode tiny symbols at a distance of 40 mm to 150 mm," continued the spokesperson. The reader's advanced imaging technology eliminates the need to spend time analyzing various configuration options before deployment. Set-up time is minimal and does not require an investment in additional accessories.

"MicroHAWK UHD Autofocus is paired with a new release of the WebLink user interface, the world's first set-up tool that resides on the reader rather than on a PC," said the spokesperson. From the intuitive WebLink interface, users can enable and disable the Autofocus feature by clicking the Autofocus button in the toolbar. Autofocus causes the reader to search continuously for symbols at various focal distances within the field of view or to set fixed focal distances using spot focus functionality. Focal distance can also be adjusted by the user in WebLink. When enabling true Autofocus in continuous read or presentation mode, the MicroHAWK reader will automatically search for symbols, refocusing after every five no-read results. While in continuous read, triggered, or presentation modes, users can use spot focus to click anywhere within the live view captured by the MicroHAWK reader to auto-set the focal distance for specific symbol locations.

MicroHAWK UHD Autofocus is offered in the ID-30 and ID-40 models with the SXGA 1.3 megapixel sensor, various lighting options and with or without a polarizer. This new offering is designed to read the symbols at a short range of 40 mm to 150 mm.
