Imaging technology moves on
It is quite staggering how the popularity of 2D bar codes has spread across all market segments of the data capture industry, used by retailers and warehouses across all of Australia. Now, with more affordable pricing and very little drawbacks with area imaging technology, 2D bar code readers are now in high demand with many features such as reading from mobile phone displays or when planning ahead for future 2D codes and imaging needs.
It is perfect for retailers
The reliable QuickScan™ QD2430 2D imager was specifically created to address the needs of Australian retailers and to meet the market demand with outstanding omnidirectional reading performance on virtually all codes at very affordable prices. The elegant design details are incorporated into smaller, balanced lightweight enclosures without sacrificing Datalogic’s well-known and respected durability.
The new illumination and aiming system
Ideally suited for applications at the point-of-sale (POS), the Datalogic QuickScan QD2430 imager features a brand new illumination and aiming system, which was developed with the unique intent to reduce visual stress of the operator during the daily scanning activities. In summary, it consists of a soft, dark red illumination combined with 2 blue LED triangles pointing at the targeted bar code. As a result, the aiming system is precise, which contributes to low eye fatigue, yet still allows top operator efficiency. No doubt that this will lead to increased productivity and cost savings in the medium and long run.
Superb reading capability
The QuickScan QD2430 imager can read typical printed linear bar codes as well as complex 2D bar codes displayed on the screen of a mobile device or loyalty cards, and provides a fast, reliable scan from an elegant and robust 2D imager. Compared to laser scanners, imaging technology meets or exceeds productivity and provides the additional advantages of a lower cost-of-ownership and greater product reliability over the medium and long term.
