With just a single button, the SR-1000 Series autofocus 1D and 2D code reader solves the issues of conventional fixed-mount code readers. The autofocus function allows this code reader to read codes at any distance up to 1 meter away. The automatic tuning feature sets the exposure time, filters, and other parameters without requiring the operator to have specialized knowledge. On top of that, this series is equipped with the world’s first polarizing filter automatic control that can eliminate glare without the need for external lighting. The optimal settings can be configured with just the press of a button, offering simplified and improved flexibility in installation and setup as well as reducing the time spent on such tasks. The polarizing filter automatic control results in stable reading of 2D codes directly marked (DPM) on cylinders, hairline metal surfaces, and metal casting, which were conventionally difficult to read due to glare.
