The AS8210 Series 2D barcode scanners have the ability to read two-dimensional codes, in addition to all standard linear barcodes. The unit will read PDF-417 and Code 16K. There are two standard interfaces, Keyboard Wedge and RS-232. The unit is housed in a high-impact ABS plastic case, and can sustain a 1 meter drop to a concrete surface. It will read codes with narrow bar widths of 0.004" or larger, and code widths of up to 4 inches (see Specifications). The scan rate is 200 scans per second.
The AS8210 Series will read all all common linear barcodes, along with two-dimensional code types PDF417 and 16K. The Keyboard Wedge Model is normally used to add a barcode "front end" to existing applications. If these applications normally accept input from the keyboard, this scanner enables use of barcodes without any software modification. Data from the scanned barcodes appears as though it was entered on the keyboard. The RS-232 Model can connect to any device that normally takes a serial data input. Baud rates up to 38,400 are user selectable, as are 7 or 8 bit word lengths and parity. The Keyboard Wedge model features an ASCII character translation table, where the unprintable ASCII Characters can be translated into Function keys, Control and ALT sequences, and other special purpose keys on a standard keyboard. This feature can be used with full ASCII barcodes, such at Code 128 and Extended Code 39. Another special editing feature allows the insertion of up to 4 text strings within the barcode data.
