Details: VB14N-300-R


The VB14N-300-R is a grid scanner for 1-D barcodes. With its high-performance optics and code reconstruction, the scanner offers a high level of reliability in reading difficult-todetect 1-D barcodes.

A function key and several LEDs on the barcode scanner provide support when parameterizing, teaching in barcodes, and testing. In live operation, the LEDs provide information about the relevant read status.

A high-speed connection can be established between up to 32 devices. This connection enables data to be recorded in a quicker and more efficient manner, without the need for an additional external multiplexer.

The corresponding PC software makes parameterization simple.
