MicroHAWK: Peru Presidential Election Application

MicroHAWK: Peru Presidential Election Application

MicroHAWK was a key player in the Peru presidential election, as shown in this high-speed reading application. We worked with a customer to establish a system where several MicroHAWK Barcode Readers are being used side by side to read codes on ballots for the election. This video illustrates the readers and WebLink software, which allow multiple devices to be configured live and side by side without special software.
