The HS-51X is a high performance wireless handheld imager for decoding both linear barcodes and 2D symbols, including direct part marks (DPM). It combines advanced decode algorithms and dual field optics with user-friendly features and the convenience of Bluetooth® wireless connectivity.

The HS-51X imager provides a reliable wireless reading solution for any barcode or 2D application, even with difficult low contrast codes.

X-Mode Decode Algorithms:  The HS-51X includes industry-leading X-Mode decoding algorithms to consistently read damaged, distorted or otherwise challenging directly marked codes at high decode rates.

Performance Indicators:  In addition to a beeper, visual and vibrating indicators provide silent confirmation of successful reads for noisy or sensitive environments. A bright blue targeting bar quickly centers the imager on the code while providing feedback on the optimal focal distance.

Easy to Clean:
  The imager's sensitive components are protected by a IP54-rated enclosure, capable of withstanding harsh chemical-based cleaners.

Charging Station:
  The charging station transmits and receives data over a Bluetooth link, and includes LED indicators for charging and successful imager pairing. Also includes a paging button to locate a misplaced imager.
