Unitech MS801 Laser ScannerMS801 laser scanner

Its speed, low-power consumption and effective depth of field, make the Unitech MS801 series suitable for a wide range of applications. Furthermore, our powerful decoder allows data to be edited and formatted before it is sent to the host. This feature saves time and money by making software changes unnecessary.

Multiple interface design
The decoded version supports keyboard wedge interface for PC XT/AT, PS/2, Macintosh (ADB) and over sixteen popular terminals. Wand emulation and serial RS232 are also supported. When used as a keyboard wedge, the operation of the keyboard remains unaffected. It uses a 3-in-1 interface which makes it easy to select and replace connection cables.

Easy to install and use
Like all other Unitech products, configuration of the scanner is fast and easy. A barcode menu provides extensive setup options. A simple quick setup menu lets users configure common features. Once ready, the configuration can be cloned and applied to other units through the use of custom barcode labels. This is very useful when you need to deploy large installations.

It is the right scanner for warehousing, production line, retail and light industrial applications. All Unitech scanners are manufactured at our ISO 9001 certified factory.
