DS6400
High Performance
Laser Scanner
Dynamic Focus System
General Description
The DS6400 has been specifically designed to satisfy the needs of various AutoID
applications in Manufacturing and Logistics applications.
The DS6400 is based on the same concept of the DS6300 and DS6500: a complete
and modular solution in terms of reading performance, connectivity, ease of use and
maintenance.
Modularity and flexibility of the DS6400 is based on an innovative mechanical
design with the scanner separated in two parts: the reading head and decoder base.
As a result, it is possible to always install the scanner in the ideal position, by simply
rotating the Head / Base position (“Step-A-Head”).
The DS6400 has a built-in linear motor providing a dynamic focus system called
FLASH™, fully controlled via SW, which covers an impressive reading range of over
2 meters. FLASH™ is capable of moving the focus position from the minimum to the
maximum position, in less than 10 msec. FLASH™ complements ASTRA™ technology,
based on a multi-laser architecture, which maximizes the real time depth of field.
The DS6400 is offered both in linear and integrated Oscillating Mirror (OM) versions,
which are fully SW controlled.
The DS6400 has the same decoder base as the DS6300, with built-in connectivity to
Ethernet, Devicenet and Profibus.
With the GENIUS™ program, it’s easy to setup the scanner and to perform functions
such as remote control and SW updates on any slave scanner of the cluster by simply connecting the Master.
