DataMan 360, 150/260 and 50 series fixed-mount readers, as well as DataMan 8050HD/HDX corded handheld readers now offer models with ESD-safe housing to prevent damage to components that are electrostatic discharge sensitive.
ESD—the sudden flow of static electricity between two objects—can damage electronic devices, spark explosions or fires in flammable environments and cause data failures. ESD-Safe Barcode Readers combine ESD-safe plastics for all enclosure parts with an antistatic coating for all optical parts.
The fixed-mount barcode readers also offer read rates with patented 1-D and 2-D code reading algorithms to read the most challenging and degraded codes. The 8050HD/HDX corded handheld readers are designed to decode challenging 2-D direct part mark (DPM) codes as well as 1-D barcodes. The ESD protective housing ensures ESD safety in even the harshest industrial environments.
