Extech Safety Systems has worked with UK-based Mobexx to develop the MobXscan mobile application for barcode scanning with mobile devices. The app has been released for Windows 10 and Android, offering 100 ms barcode scanning (https://mobxscan.com/).
Barcode scanner: mobXscan adds the capability of barcode scanning to any Windows 10 tablet PC or Android device and uses the built in camera to scan and capture the barcode. Very easy to use interface makes it the simplest way to add barcode reading functionality.
Easy integration: mobXscan has been designed to be as easy to use as possible. Open the app and press the scan button to almost instantly read the barcode and enter it into your application. Or, a simple command can be sent from a user application to trigger mobXscan.
Clever design: mobXscan makes the use of barcodes easy and powerful. It is fully compliant with Microsoft Windows 10 and Android 5.0 and above, but offers some clever features to make it really easy to add to a custom application, and really simple for the operator to use – the easier to use, the easier for operators to accept a new process.
For almost 30 years, South Africa-based Extech has been providing instrumentation, especially intrinsic safety, for hazardous area operations in southern Africa. In recent years, the company has signed with several leading industrial networking and mobile communications companies with the view to offer a comprehensive solution for IIoT/Industrie 4.0 in hazardous areas.
“mobXscan opens up true 100 ms barcode scanning at a fraction of the cost of traditional intrinsically safe barcode scanners,” says Extech sales director, Gary Friend. “We can offer the AEGEx Windows 10 tablet and/or i.safe Mobile smart phone (IS520.1) or tablet (IS910.1) to use this application in all hazardous areas.”
