IS8000 Series HoloTrak®
AOA’s IS8000 Series HoloTrak utilizes the
power of holography. These fixed position scanners
project a large, dense scan pattern virtually unattainable by traditional scanners. The IS8000 Series
HoloTrak’s offer models for reading low and highdensity codes, at low or high speeds, projecting
thousands of scan lines per second in multiple
depths of field - all accomplished by AOA’s exclusive
device, the Holodisc. The IS8000 Series HoloTrak
scanners include four models: IS8300, IS8400,
IS8500 and IS8550.
All of these models include AOA’s exclusive holographic architecture. The models differ in the areas
of scan pattern, aspect ratio of the bar code, depth
of field, and number of scan lines created per second. This industrial product group is designed to
increase productivity by providing a hands-free solution to scanning. Applications such as order fulfillment, returns processing, shipping and receiving,
and work in process are only a few areas where the
IS8000 Series proven performance is unprecedented.
IS8000 Series scanners are also an ideal solution for
scanning parcels on a conveyor system where the
conveyor speed reaches a maximum of 1.8 meters
per second (350 feet per minute).
Applications:
•Shipping/receiving
•Walk under presentation
•Conveyor scanning
•Work in process
•Baggage handling
•Sortation
•Postal service centers

TECH Series
AOA’s TECH Series scanners are designed for
short-range scanning. These rugged laser scanners
begin scanning just a few inches from the face of the
scanner and project a depth of scan field reach up to
560 mm (22”) from the face. Capable of being
mounted in any position, these scanners are a popular choice for warehouse and distribution centers and
manufacturing plants. These scanners are the only
AOA industrial category using conventional scanning
optics because holography which excels at a longerrange is not necessary for close up bar code reading.
Available in three models, each project a specific
“close-range” depth of field. Two of the three models are available as a “raster” version or an omnidirectional scan pattern version. All models are water
and shock-resistant and come with user’s guide,
communication cable/power supply and mounting
stand. The TECH scanners are a low cost solution to
scanning needs for many applications.

AOA’s most comprehensive scanning system to date,
multi-sided scanning offers a hands-free, worry-free solution for fully automated parcel identification and handling.
Multi-sided scanning is unique in design, function, and
complexity based on the needs of the user. The basic need
for a multi-sided scanning array would be for scanning
parcels on a high-speed conveyor system utilizing a sortation device as part of that system. Since the needs of a
client can vary from scanning two sides of a parcel, to three
sides, on up to all six sides, the systems are customized to
meet the specific needs of a client. For six sided scanning
applications, AOA uses a combination of laser and camerabased scanning systems to provide maximum performance
and reliability. In addition to scanning the bar code, the
scanning array offers such options as parcel tracking,
dimensioning, weighing, and labeling. AOA’s team of
technical personnel can either integrate the scanners into
an existing conveyor scanning system or assist in creating a
new system.
QTrace
®
AOA’s QTrace dimensioning system measures
length, width, height and volume of parcels, even
irregular shaped parcels, as they travel on a conveyor
belt at speeds up to 2.8 meters per second (550 feet
per minute). This system mounts easily over a conveyor
and requires no break in the belt.
QTrace employs laser doppler imaging which uses two
amplitude modulated lasers, operating at two separate
wavelengths, that scan across the conveyor belt. This
imaging does much more than just dimensioning! The
system can identify when two parcels are touching one
another as well as detecting if parcels are side-by-side
as they move down the conveyor belt. The combined
parcel location, singulation detection, and dimensional
information is imperative to maximizing the performance of sortation systems.
Additional benefits derived from QTrace include revenue recovery that ensures proper fees are charged
based on the parcel dimensions and volume. With
accurate dimensioning and proper sortation data, efficient and cost-effective truck-load planning and routing can be formulated.
Features:
• Measures length, width and height of parcels
• Accurate discrimination of multiple packages
• Provides low resolution imaging of parcel and label
Benefits:
• No break in belt
• No belt level components
• No external sensors
• Revenue recovery
QTrace provides 3D parcel dimension
and volume information.

IDU Series Controllers
The IDU Series are "control centers" for AOA's
TECH Series and IS8000 HoloTrak Series scanners. The units are basically a power supply
source and communication center for the scanners. The display device will scroll the bar code
data as scanned or as it is transmitted to the host
and can be configured to display separate information relating to the application. Package
counts, read rates and diagnostic error codes can
be displayed with some changes to the display
management software. As a standard, only the
bar code data is displayed. The built-in multiplexor can control the data stream from multiple
scanners, generate no read and multiple read
logic messages and identify the location from
which data was sent.
Features:
• Light weight - compact housing
• Built-in climate controls
• Vacuum fluorescent display
• Integrated computer, power supply, communications ports, peripheral ports
IDU1004 model only:
• Built-in 4-line by 80 character display
• 6 ports, maximum 8 scanners (with
master/slave combination)
• Optional ethernet output
• Operating temperatures up to
50° C (122° F)
IDU1002 model only:
• Optional 2-line by 20 character display
• 4 ports, maximum 4 scanners
• Operating temperatures up to
40° C (104° F)

Options & Accessories
The QTroller is a "control center" for bar code scanning and parcel tracking when used in conjunction with AOA's scanners
and dimensioners. In order for scanning and tracking to take place data needs to be gathered, decoded, processed and
tracked in real time and then transmitted to the host system. QTroller does exactly that. In addition to acquiring the data
from the scanners, QTroller provides the power necessary to operate as many as four scanners. If an integrated scale system is
being used, QTroller can simultaneously supply the power to the scale and up to three scanners. As part of AOA's QTrak bar
code tracking system, QTroller's on board computer receives data from the scanners, along with conveyor belt speed and
package sensor information.
The MI8000 HoloPlexor is a port and data concentrator used to simplify the installation of multiple scanners. The
HoloPlexor is available in two models: MI8004 allows up to 4 scanners to be connected to one host while the MI8008 allows
for up to 8 scanners to be connected to one host. It accommodates applications that require multiple scanning locations, but
have only one data input port available on the host device. The HoloPlexor, and all of the scanners connected to it, operate
as if it were a single scanner. Setup and configuration commands sent to the HoloPlexor will program all of the scanners.
The MX001 Industrial Control Interface provides a way to connect an external object sensor to the scanner and a way for
the scanner to control an external device through an electronic switch (a TRIAC). This enables the scanner to sense the presence of objects to be scanned and then provide a line voltage output signal if the scanned object meets preprogrammed conditions. The MX001 can be configured to support any object sensor that can supply a 12V, 5V or 10mA output signal. It will
also support switch closure (relay) type sensor output. Additionally, the MX001 can provide 12V DC power (at 200mA maximum) to a low voltage, DC type sensor unit making external sensor power supplies unnecessary.
An External High-VVolume Speaker is available for the TECH Series scanners and the IS8000 Series HoloTrak scanners.
These product lines come standard with a built in 80dB speaker. By connecting an external speaker these scanners increase in
volume to 90dB. The external speaker also includes red and green indicator lamps, similar to those on the scanner itself, to
provide additional visual indication of scanner operation. A supporting port must be added to the scanner at the time of original purchase.
Cables for Master/Slave Operation are an economical way to connect two scanners to cover a wide conveyor or to connect
a top scanner and a side scanner to read two sides of a package. A single identification will be reported, even if both scanners read a bar code. They may be joined together using a MI8000 HoloPlexor. TECH scanners may be slaved to an IS8000
Series HoloTrak master. Two TECH scanners cannot be joined as master and slave.
