Mini imager bar reads tiny codes for component tracking

A new mini imager features 3-megapixel imaging to extend bar code imaging technology to the highest resolution available for data tracking. Microscan Systems launches the Quadrus MINI 3, claimed to be the world’s only mini imager able to decode tiny, high density codes of less than 3 mil.

A new mini imager features 3-megapixel imaging to extend bar code imaging technology to the highest resolution available for data tracking. Microscan Systems launches the Quadrus MINI 3, claimed to be the world’s only mini imager able to decode tiny, high density codes of less than 3 mil. The manufacturers in printed circuit board assembly and semiconductors require ever smaller parts and components and they need component tracking systems. Marking and decoding ID on the miniature components presents challenges. According to Microscan president Dennis Kaill, “We’ve more than doubled the image processing capabilities to provide the resolution and field of view to read the smallest codes in the most demanding applications.” Another benefit is an extremely wide field of view for reading up to 100 codes in one capture. www.microscan.com Microscan System
