Laser Barcode Scanner


The QX-830 offers high performance decoding in almost any automation environment with decoding and reliable read of 1D barcodes. Designed for industrial applications, the QX-830 has flexibility in positioning, side LED indicators for real-time feedback with a green flash for “good-read” scans visible within a 360 degree radius of the scanner. The QX-830 features 300 to 1400 scans per second, a read range of 1 to 30” (25 to 762 mm), optional embedded ethernet TCP/IP & EtherNet/IP, and IP64 enclosure. The ESP Easy Setup Program, EZ Button, Visible Indicators and QX Platform make the QX-830 ideal for industrial applications.
