The EL46 scanner is offered with an RS232 interface, which means that all BEETLE systems can be fitted with it. The EL46 is supplied with power from the BEETLE system via the RS232 interface or by means of a power supply unit if there is no powered RS232 interface. The scanner’s “FirstStrikeTM advanced” decoding method improves reading creased and damaged labels. The EL46 offer an ideal price/performance ratio with all its new features. The device has all the approvals required for international marketing, such as UL, VDE, EMU/ESD and CE. Laser class 1, state-of-the-art technol­ogy and low power consumption mean operational reliability and a long life cycle.
