The MINI Hawk is a powerful miniature imager that solves a wide range of data tracking and traceability needs across all industries. It provides aggressive barcode reading algorithms and easy setup for any 1D, 2D, or direct part mark (DPM) application. Reliable decoding is ensured through X-Mode technology, which reads damaged or difficult symbols with no configuration or setup required.

With easy setup, powerful image processing, and multiple configurations, the MINI Hawk is an ideal solution for any barcode or DPM application.

X–Mode Technology: Our patented X-Mode technology provides easy setup and deployment in any application. In addition to reliable decoding of damaged or difficult linear codes and 2D symbols, the MINI Hawk features advanced decode algorithms to read a wide range of direct part marks.

Autofocus:  For real time dynamic autofocus, position the symbol at the center of the field of view, and push the EZ button. The MINI Hawk automatically adjusts focal distance and sets internal parameters to optimize the symbol.

Flexibility:  Mulitple resolutions are available to provide solutions to a wide range of applications.

Wide Field of View:  Read symbols as large as 2” (50.8 mm) square as close as 1” (25.4 mm) with diffractive field illumination and optional right angle mirror.

Compact and Lightweight:  Miniature form factor fits easily in tight spaces, and is lightweight for mounting into robotic applications.
