The sturdy wired Hand-held scanner BCS 160ex offers the highly developed ergonomic and functional features required in industrial applications. The scan line is wider than in conventional laser scanners and therefore easier to see. This makes aiming at the barcode much easier – even on hardto-access objects. Its high scanning and decoding frequency of 500 Hz enables easy scanning of a large number of barcodes in quick succession. The BCS 160ex has a robust enclosure that can withstand use even in the toughest conditions. Even dropping it onto the ground several times from a height of 2 m will not damage this scanner.



The BCS 160ex hand-held scanner with integrated decoder is suitable for a plug-in connection to the power pack. The power pack is installed directly in the hazardous area. It contains a module for the intrinsically safe supply (barrier) for the hand-held scanner and an isolator (evaluation barrier) for the data lines. The data lines can be connected directly in hazardous areas to non-Ex systems, e.g. PCs, PLC or microprocessors. This applies to Zone 1, 2 and to Zone 21, 22.
