MCR12 barcode reader field of view, working distance, etc.

by agreenhouse on Thu Jan 10, 2019 1:11 pm

Hi there!

I'm considering buying one or more MCR12 units (USB interface), and was wondering about some of the specs and how to calculate relevant measurements.

Specifically, I need to know whether the unit can read 1D barcodes across a 8" or 12" wide field of view, and if so, at what distance above the barcode the unit would need to be mounted (e.g. the working distance).

I believe this depends on the focal length of the lens, which isn't specified. I don't actually know how to do the relevant math, but at the end of the day, I just need to figure out:

1) If I can cover 8" or 12"-wide areas with a single unit

and

2) At what distance range above the barcode the unit(s) would need to be mounted.

Thanks!
