MS-890 Industrial Automation Scanner

The MS-890 is a heavy duty scanner with the flexibility to solve a multitude of applications under a variety of factory conditions. The extended read range and intelligent sweeping raster provide robust reading of both linear bar codes and stacked symbologies.

  • Scans/second: 400 to 1000
  • Read Range: 10 to 120” (254 to 3048 mm)
  • IP65 Enclosure
  • Optional IB-890 Wiring Box


The MS-890 is a heavy duty scanner with the flexibility to solve a multitude of applications under a variety of factory conditions. The extended read range and intelligent sweeping raster provide robust reading of both linear bar codes and stacked symbologies.

Versatility and rugged design make the MS-890 an ideal scanner for industrial applications.

Long Read Range:  The MS-890 optics were engineered for successful reading at extended or varying distances, such as a safety or clearance zone required around conveyor or assembly areas.

Visible Indicators:  Illuminated LEDs on the MS-890 provide instant visual confirmation of successful reads. A “good read green flash” is projected from the front window and is visible within a 360 degree radius from the scanner.

Optional Wiring Box:  The IB-890 wiring box provides easy and flexible integration, without any special cables or connectors.

Features include:

  • Ethernet (with optional MS-Connect 210)
  • Pluggable relay modules
  • Terminal strip connectivity
  • Connectivity with handheld scanners


Intelligent Raster:  The MS-890 features an intelligent raster which can be optimized for scan angle and speed to read multiple symbols or inconsistently placed labels.

Autocalibration:  The autocalibration feature automatically determines and selects optimal read settings for focus, gain and tracking.

Bar Code Programming:  Changing scanner configuration on the factory floor is as simple as presenting a barcode and pushing the EZ button. This feature makes it simple to replicate settings on multiple MS-890 scanners.
