Ultra lightweight and Ergonomic Design

At almost 120g [4.2oz] (excluding cable), the HC36 weighs less than other similar models previously available, for all-day use without fatigue.

Wider Bar Code Reading

Held further away, the HC36 can read the bar code of up to 200mm (7.9") wide, something that has been a problem for conventional CCD scanners. This new feature makes the HC36 a valuable tool in a wider range of uses, for example in distribution.

Complete Range

The HC36 is available in two types, the conventional "touch reading type" and new "distance reading type and with various interface options, including RS-232C, OCIA, CMOS/bar-image, and keyboard emulation.
