The LM520 is a complete scanning system, ready to plug in and scan. The LM520presents a fast, easy and low- cost way to incorporate scanning into any applicationwhere you need to read a bar code.
High Performance, Reliable Scan Module
The LM520 is designed around LM520 Plus scan module. Consistent,reliable scanning performance is achieved with its retroreflective optical design,which uses a frictionless, electromagnetic dithering mirror to direct laserlight to its target. This design is highly reliable and consumes less powerthan competitive models.
Advanced RapidStart™ circuitry creates the fastest start- of-scan inthe industry, giving snappy performance and a reduction in misreads at startup An impressive read range, from 2.0 to 36.0 inches (5.1 to 91.4 cm) and excellentpitch and skew angles makes this scanner suitable for many tightly specifiedbar code reading applications.
Rugged Aluminum Enclosure
Measuring only 1.35 x 2.00 x 2.53 inches (3.4 x 5.1 x 6.4 cm) and weighing only5.4 oz. (153 g), the compact LM520 fits in almost any fixed-position or embeddedapplication. And the LM520 's rugged extruded aluminum enclosure protects thescanner from mechanical shock, and seals it from dust and moisture.
Convenient Integration Features
System integration is made easy with the LM520 's unique mounting design. Sixmounting grooves, in the scanner's sealed enclosure, enable mounting on anyone of four sides. A mounting kit, containing special mounting studs and locknuts, come with every scanner.
To assure reliable integration, the LM520 uses an industry standardRS232C interface, which allows the scanner to be mounted up to 50 feet (15.2m) from the host system. Good read/no read result switches make integrationwith other automation control equipment a snap. These convenient design featureshelp reduce implementation time and the costs associated with developing complicatedintegrated solutions.
Four separate Triggering Modes
Four separate triggering modes can be used to scan a bar code:
The various modes are selected via host commands or simple bar code programminglabels.
