ID TECH ValueScanValueScan laser scanner
Hand-held Laser Scanner for Bar Codes

Scans and decodes bar codes
ID TECH's ValueScan laser scanner is specially designed for heavy-use environments where other forms of scanning are impractical. The scanner utilizes an exceptionally fast decoding technology that maximizes both functionality and dependability.

High-speed non-contact scanning
ID TECH's ValueScan provides quick non-contact scanning of bar codes from distances of up to 23 inches. At a scan rate of 36 scans per second, low-quality or damaged bar codes, as well as small or high-density bar codes, can be read with exceptional speed and accuracy.

Ergonomic and lightweight
The rugged ValueScan is exceptionally lightweight and designed to fit comfortably in the hand for extended periods of usage. The cable is detachable for easy replacement or use with multiple interfaces.

Dependable non-contact scanning
The precision optics in the ValueScan enables it to reliably scan bar codes at angles exceeding 45, making it ideal for scanning large, bulky items that cannot be moved or are not easily accessible. Small, high-density bar codes can be accommodated by simply holding the scanner at closer range.
