Bal­luff has ex­panded its of­fer­ing of op­ti­cal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with the new In­dus­trial Hand­held Reader BVS HS-P. The portable reader with in­tu­itive op­er­a­tion re­li­ably reads high-res­o­lu­tion bar­codes as well as codes over a wide range at a read dis­tance of up to 110cms. Di­rect Part Mark­ing (DPM) codes can also be read. The ruggedly con­structed de­vice of­fers IP 65 pro­tec­tion and with­stands drops from up to two me­ters with­out any dam­age, prom­ises Bal­luff.

Even tilts of up to 40° and ro­ta­tion an­gles of up to 180° do not af­fect the read re­li­a­bil­ity. The op­ti­cal aim­ing sys­tem with a highly vis­i­ble laser mark­ing bor­der makes han­dling and tar­get ac­qui­si­tion sim­ple.
