MS4980 Vuquest


A sleek and elegant design that blends seamlessly in retail environments.

Product Description

Honeywell’s MS4980 compact area-imaging scanner offers aggressive scanning of all 1D, PDF and 2D bar codes in a lightweight, durable and portable form factor. The scanner also features a sleek and elegant design that blends seamlessly in retail environments. Automatic infrared object detection enables robust and easy presentation scanning, while patented CodeGate® technology provides precise targeting and scanning of closely grouped bar codes. The MS4980 delivers an array of advanced features that enhance productivity. Aggressive reading of bar codes on highly reflective surfaces, such as mobile phone screens, eliminates the need to purchase additional specialty hardware. A 1.2 mega-pixel CMOS sensor allows the scanner to capture high resolution images of signatures, identification cards and personal checks. An intelligent multi-interface design distinguishes the MS4980 from competitive scanners. The scanner has three dedicated memory banks—each one capable of storing full configurations for RS232, keyboard wedge and USB interfaces. Automatic cable detection and configuration simplifies scanner management by eliminating the need for manual configuration after the change of an interface cable. TotalFreedom™ expands scanner functionality by allowing image processing, decoding and formatting plug-ins to be loaded directly to the MS4980 instead of the host system. The MS4980 is small enough to be held in the palm or worn on the back of the hand. Its compact size also allows it be mounted anywhere, including in self-service scanning kiosks.
