The OPL-6845 hand held laser barcode scanners from Opticon incorporate several new features aimed at making the chore of scanning barcodes a less laborious one. Barcode readers like the Opticon's OPL6845 are the first of a new breed of RoHS compliant devices from Opticon, showing the company's commitment to making products that are kinder to the environment. Opticon has developed a new generation of laser scan engine, which, when combined with the latest decoding software, provides unsurpassed reading performance across a wide variety of different code types and qualities. The OPL 6845 laser barcode scanner automatically switches from triggered mode to hands free mode upon insertion into the easily assembled hands free stand that is supplied as standard. The implementation of a collapsible stand has significantly reduced the amount of packaging used for this product. Available in both black and (off) white, Opticon's OPL-6845 is the perfect match for all kinds of PC, whilst Wedge, USB or RS232C interfaces guarantee a straightforward interface into both new and legacy systems.
