The MS146 bar code slot reader is a flexible, cost effective scanning solution. With a resolution of up to 6 mils, the MS146 is capable of reading any bar coded identification badge.
Its sealed optical system is available in both visible light or infrared. The infrared units ensure accurate reading of visible and laminated badges. Its water resistant base, rugged housing, and IP54 rated sealing make the MS146 ideal for harsh environments. An optional mounting bracket is available to safely secure the unit in any direction.

Visible light: 660nm LED
To read a barcode symbol, it is illuminated by a scanner. Light is reflected back in varying amounts, depending on the bars and spaces. These differences are translated into signals by a light detector inside the scanner. The signals are converted into various combinations to stand for specific characters.
Infrared: 930nm LED
In the case of infrared barcodes, a layer of security is added to an otherwise low-security technology. Special black obscuration panels cover the barcode label to prevent photocopying, making it readable only by an infrared barcode reader.
