MEMS: the new class of Bar Code scanners

Bar code technology users no longer need to make a choice between the outstanding reliability provided by solid-state CCD readers and the fast performance associated with laser scanners. A major innovation in laser scanner design and manufacturing provides outstanding reliability and performance. By adapting highly proven, highly reliable MEMS technology for bar code reading, MEMS-based laser scanners provide faster reading, better recognition and processing of poor quality or damaged bar codes than traditional lasers, and extreme reliability even in demanding scanning environments. MEMS scan engines are also extremely compact – about the size of a sugar cube – which leads to lightweight, ergonomic and power-friendly scanners.
