Equipped with a new AI decoding algorithm, the readers are designed to be able to reliably read difficult to read and even damaged codes. All the barcode readers in the series can read QR, MicroQR, DataMatrix, PDF417, MicroPDF417, GS1 Composite, DotCode, Maxi Code and Aztec Code 2codes and all can read CODE39, ITP, COOP 20f5, NW-7, CODE 128, GS1 DataBar, CODE93, JAN/EAN/UPC, Trioptic CODE39 Full ASCII, Pharmacode, and Postal barcode.

The code readers have a footprint of 56 x 37 x 35.5 mm and are IP65/IP67 rated. They can operate in temperatures of 0°C to 45°C and 35% to 95% humidity.

The SR-X series code readers are especially designed for such tasks as code reading through reflections/deflections on plastic pouch products, reflections on vinyl covers, test tubes and bottles, and blurred printing on cardboard boxes.
