Barcode scanner for use in hazardous areas
January 2017, Industrial Wireless, IS & Ex


Managing inventory and tracing assets can be a laborious and time-consuming process, especially in hazardous areas, but Extronics now offers a cost-effective solution to the problem – the new iSCAN range of intrinsically safe barcode scanners.

The iSCAN range’s rapid scan rate records information quickly and efficiently. Light enough to be carried around, yet rugged enough to withstand a drop onto concrete, the iSCAN range provides a practical way to improve productivity whilst reducing the risk of errors.

ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 certified, the iSCAN range can be safely used in hazardous areas. The wide scan line and good read range makes it easy to scan barcodes in awkward and hard-to-reach locations, saving time and allowing workers to maintain a safe distance.

The units can connect to current systems to give a better oversight of operations, and can also be used with smart devices such as the Rough Pro range via Bluetooth. Fully scalable, they are available in several different options, giving the flexibility to choose the version that is best suited for the application.
