Reading barcodes

Handheld computers come with an imager that adds more flexibility

Glacier Computer has updated its M300 and M305 rugged mobile handheld computers with the EX25 Imager.

The company says adding the EX25 Imager offers flexibility to read 1D and 2D barcodes, omni-directionally at distances from six inches to more than 50 feet (15 cm to 15m). 

The M300 and M305 now provides near and far range scanning on paper barcodes for extra long-range reading of pallet labels from the ground up to the third level of stacking. 

Built to work in the most hostile environments, the EX25 Imager operates from total darkness to full sunshine over a large temperature range and complies with the most stringent standards for shock and vibration. 
 
The M300 and M305 handheld computers are designed with many of the same attributes inherent in Glacier’s Everest Series of vehicle mount computers such as ruggedization and configuration flexibility.

The M305 features an ergonomic pistol grip, designed for fatigue free all-day scanning. 

Both models use the M3 Series board-level ruggedization technique to provide a light-weight, durable form factor that is sealed to IP65 rating and certified to withstand multiple six foot drops to concrete.
