Modular OEM Barcode Imaging Engine
The MicroHAWK® Engine offers OEMs and machine builders the industry’s smallest, most powerful, modular, and scalable auto ID platform available for solving the toughest 1D/2D barcode reading challenges.
The design of the MicroHAWK Engine builds upon Microscan's 30+ years of experience working with the world’s largest OEMs. MicroHAWK offers practically limitless combinations of optics, sensors, decoders, and processing performance to meet any OEM barcode reading requirement. Extremely small, powerful, and simple – MicroHAWK is the ideal solution for your embedded application.
Measuring just 19.5 mm x 28.7 mm x 33.9 mm and weighing less than 14 g, the MicroHAWK Engine is intended for use in robotic equipment and for mounting in the smallest spaces.
Built around an ultra-fast microprocessor, MicroHAWK easily solves application challenges ranging from simple barcode reading to direct part mark (DPM) applications.
No Software Required
The streamlined WebLink product setup tool requires no software installation and features an intuitive interface for novice users.
Reliability and Longevity
MicroHAWK delivers both reliability and high performance with the assurance of long-term availability and support. Microscan has served the OEM/Embedded market for over 30 years and we have a sophisticated understanding of the service and support required for the lifecycle of your machine.

Microscan's smarter smart camera platform, MicroHAWK®, is unveiled for the first time at The Vision Show 2016 in Boston, MA. MicroHAWK combines advanced barcode reading up to complex machine vision inspection all on the world's smallest smart cameras available, ideal for embedded applications in OEM for factory automation and clinical instrumentation.
Microscan Global Business Development Manager for Electronics, Christoph Wimmer, introduces barcode reading and machine vision solutions on display at the IPC APEX 2016 tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Microscan's MicroHAWK® Barcode Readers are integrated into a demo of Microscan's PanelScan® PCB Traceability System to illustrate in-line PCB identification for worry-free traceability of components despite line changes resulting in new codes on PCBs, new code or mark locations, different PCB colors, and other changes.
