AS-8150 ArgoScan 

Barcode Long Range Imager




The durable and ergonomically designed AS-8150 is the best-value handheld scanner in its class. This long-range CCD scanner replaces traditional laser bar code scanners, but at a lower cost. The AS-8150 has a high intensity aiming line and captures bar codes from as far away as 200 mm.

High speed bar code captures at 200 scans per second use our patented “Digi-Decode” technology.This scanner is easy to aim and scans codes in any lighting environment. The AS-8150 features both handheld and fixed projection modes, as well as long-range activation and an adjustable stand (optional) for automated operation. Flash ROM with Meteor upgrade utility is included.
