Varioptic and Datalogic have announced the availability of Datalogic’s Matrix 300 barcode reader and PowerScan PD9500 HP mobile scanner with variable focus liquid lenses from Varioptic.

Matrix 300 barcode readers feature 1.3 MPixel image sensors with a 60 fps frame rate, as well as integrated dual illuminators, Power over Ethernet, and an IP67 enclosure for integration into industrial settings. These barcode readers are designed for direct part marking applications including those in manufacturing, electronics, automotive, medical device traceability, food and beverage, and clinical lab automation applications.

PowerScan PBT9500 HP 2D handheld area imagers utilize Bluetooth wireless technology to enable mobile scanning in warehouses, logistics, and manufacturing applications. These imagers feature omnidirectional reading from contact to more than 3.3 ft., soft white light illumination, Motionix motion-sensing technology, and an IP65 enclosure.

Both of these devices feature a Varioptic liquid lens for variable focus, which enables noiseless variable focus with no moving parts and a dynamic range with a focus from 5 cm to infinity. In addition, the lenses enable lower power consumption and higher shock resistance.

"The addition of Varioptic’s liquid lens with no moving parts to the PowerScan imager’s other advanced features allows us to offer an even more reliable product with higher performance levels," said Giulio Berzuini, VP and GM for the Hand Held Scanners Business Unit of Datalogic, in the press release.
