The 2500 Series features a high-speed read rate of a snappy 578 scans per second on 1D barcodes. For small or poorly-printed barcodes, the 2500 also guarantees its performance with readability of high-density 3 mil 1D barcodes and 5 mil 2D barcodes. It seamlessly combines its superior scanning performance with IP54 and 1.8 m drop resistance for harsh environments in warehousing and manufacturing. More than just these advantages, its other user-friendly features, like interface auto-detecting, enhanced ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection and swappable battery all make the CipherLab 2500 an optimal choice to update your business to new grounds.
