Features and Benefits Full-range linear depth of field: Scan out to 16.5 m (54 ft) on 100 mil retro-reflective labels, or as close as 8.9 cm (3.5 in) on 7.5 mil high-density barcodes and everything in between
Class-leading durability: The custom-built IP65-rated housing is able to withstand 5,000 1 m (3.3 ft) tumbles and survive 50 drops from 2 m (6.5 ft) at -30°C (-22°F), reducing service costs and increasing device uptime
Industrial-grade cable option: Tested to withstand 300,000 90° bends at -30°C (-22°F) and continues to communicate when 27.2 kg (60 lb) of force is applied
Full-range area-imaging performance: Scans low-density (100 mil) codes out to 16 m (52 ft) and high-density (2 mil) codes at close range – and everything in between
Built Granit-tough: Tested to withstand the toughest environments, Granit is rated IP65 and can withstand 5,000 tumbles from 1 m (3.3 ft) and 50 drops to concrete from 2 m (6.5 ft)
Easy to use: A laser-spot aimer, omnidirectional scanning and features such as centering take the guesswork out of scanning at extended ranges
