Banner: New ABR Models Feature Higher Resolution, Polarization for Improved Performance

January 13, 2021

ABR Series barcode readers can now be used to solve even more track and trace applications. New to the series are 2 MP ABR 7000 models offering increased resolution to read smaller codes, over a larger target area, and at greater distances. Polarization is now available in both 1.3 MP and 2 MP ABR 7000 models for improved performance on targets with reflective surfaces or where glare is present. These new models offer superior versatility and performance in challenging applications while retaining the same ease-of-use, compact form factor, and on-board features as the rest of the ABR Series.


ABR Series barcode readers with a 2MP (1600 x 1200 pixels) imager reliably read small or complex barcodes, even at large distances or field of views. Polarization models are available in both 1.3 MP and 2 MP resolutions for optimized performance in any application that involves reading codes on shiny or reflective surfaces, or where glare is present. Utilizing advanced algorithms, every ABR decodes a full library of 1D and 2D barcodes, including DPM, damaged, distorted, or overprinted codes.


Standard integrated LED illuminators provide bright, uniform light to illuminate barcodes and provide proper contrast in order to reliably read every time. The ABR 7000 is available in a variety of LED configurations, including multicolored LEDs for bright-field and dark-field illumination within one unit, ideal for use in low-contrast and direct part marking (DPM) applications. 


The all-in-one design of ABR Series barcode readers combines imager, lens, and LED lighting in one, easy-to-deploy device.  Autofocus is available to offer simplified device installation and product change over. The compact ABR 7000 has a rotating connector for straight or right-angle installations. Device setup is easy using Barcode Manager software or the on-board Smart Teach interface.


Connect, configure, and monitor multiple ABR Series barcode readers using Barcode Manager. This free and easy-to-use software features flowchart programming and a wide range of configuration options, including a one-step process for automatic setup and an advanced option that provides full access to change and configure device settings. Connect multiple readers together with master-slave functionality for complex applications.
