By CIOReview | Tuesday, September 29, 2015

RENTON, WA: Microscan, manufacturer and pioneer of auto ID solutions unveils Micro HAWK, a barcode reading platform for user-forced engineering. Micro Hawk features a fully-integrated barcode imaging engine, three industrial-rated miniature barcode imagers and webLink browser-based configuration interface. It comes with capability of decoding any symbol in any application for enhanced flexibility and compatibility.

MicroHwak is based on automatic identification and data capture technology which offers an array of modular hardware options capable of decoding any task in three micro-form-factor readers. The most unique feature of this suite is, it doesn’t need software installations and no compatibility obstacles. It consists of decoder and sensors where the engine can be configured with any combination of features and packaged into a MicroHAWK model (ID-20, ID-30, or ID-40) with ideal dimensions, connectivity, and industrial-rating for any installation.

“MicroHAWK was designed as a convergence of technology innovation and feedback from our customers. It is as small as possible without sacrificing performance and capability. The result is a platform that is both easy to use and flexible enough to support all of our customers’ applications. It's simply incredible,” says Andrew Zosel, Vice President of Engineering and Marketing at Microscan.

It allows the users to optimize a barcode reader and provides various options compatible to required needs. The options include ID-20 OEM Barcode Reader with simple USB connectivity; the flexible IP54-rated ID-30 Miniature Barcode Reader with corner-exit cable; the ID-40 Industrial Ethernet Barcode Reader.

The integrated WebLink UI is engineered to meet users needs and allows device to be easily installed as new or can even exist with previous system. This will provide enhanced speed and precision making adaptable to any criteria. . From any web-enabled device, users can access the IP address of their MicroHAWK reader in a web browser to view decoded data and barcode images in real time. Using basic information about a barcode reading job, (barcode type, application type, number of codes, etc.), the WebLink interface automatically adjusts the settings of the connected MicroHAWK reader to train and optimize for the expected codes and reading conditions.
