Symbol MiniScan MS954 Fixed Mount Bar Code Scanner

As one of the smallest, lightest and brightest fixed-mount scanners available today, the Symbol MS954 is ideal for OEM device designs with space constraints, such as kiosks and ATMs, clinical diagnostic equipment, medical instruments, gaming devices and turnstiles/access control. The device offers a configurable scan angle of 47° and 35°. The built-in RS-232 interface provides linear scanning on all types of 1D bar codes, including poorly printed and low-contrast symbols.

Versatile performance
Premium scanning on poorly printed and low-contrast 1D symbols.

Flexible decode range
Working range from near-contact to more than 35 in (88.9 cm).

Controllable 47° and 35° scan angle
Meets demands of most applications.

Plug-and-play and RS-232 interface
Reduces development time and speeds up time to market.

Variable controls
Software control or manual triggering allows unattended or hands-free applications.

Simple Serial Interface (SSI)
Provides fast, simple communications between scanner and host.

Adaptable decode capability
Reads all major 1D symbologies, delivering an impressive first-time read rate.

Bright laser diode
Makes scan line is easy to see.

Software developer's kit (SDK) at no extra charge
Enables the creation of applications using familiar Microsoft® Windows® 98, 2000 and XP platforms.
