Access Introduces Water-Resistant 2D Barcode Reader

Access IS has launched the LSR116 – a compact, sealed, water- and dust-resistant 2D barcode reader which produces “exceptionally fast and accurate” reading of barcode data from smartphones, as well as printed paper.
The LSR116 has a simple plug-in design, using just a single bracket, which enables it to be quickly and cheaply integrated into kiosks, podiums and ticket gates.
An Access statement said that the reader has a unique optimised focal distance and a 2D omnidirectional barcode imager to ensure high-speed performance, capturing and decoding barcodes in any orientation.  It also provides simultaneous user-feedback with a bright green LED light to reassure users of a successful scan.  This makes it ideal for processing large numbers of customers, many of whom are novice users and may be in a hurry.
“The LSR116 offers exceptional performance, even overcoming the current market challenges of ensuring high-performance reads for smartphone and tablet QR code displays,” commented Nigel Bonsor, Technical Director at Access.
Furthermore, the sealed units are certified to IP67 standards and water-resistant up to 3.3ft (1m) in depth, as well as dustproof, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments, as well as extreme weather.
Featuring a single interchangable cable connection to a host PC, RS232 and USB interface options and FLASH upgradeable software, the imager reads all popular linear, PDF417 and 2D symbologies, including postal barcodes.
