DS1500 miniaturization allows easy integration into OEM equipment and automatic machinery. The high scan rate and sophisticated electronic design effectively addresses difficult reading conditions. DS1500 operates at a speed up to 1200scan/s, extending the application range also to high speed document handling, paper inserting, label rewinding and packaging machines. Additionally, the scanner motor can be switched ON and OFF via SW command. This feature is useful in very low throughput application or when the machine sits idle for long periods. A simple software command allows a prompt restoration of full operation when needed.
