Versatile Mini mager
for Auto ID
The Quadrus MINI solves a wide range of data
tracking and traceability needs across all
industries. The 1.3 megapixel imager reads all
standard 2D or linear barcodes, plus multiple
codes per capture. Dynamic real time autofocus
automatically reads different codes, at varying
distances, while in motion.
With easy setup, flexible programming, and powerful image processing, the Quadrus MINI is an ideal
solution for virtually all barcode applications.

Quadrus MINI: At a Glance
• Decodes/second: up to 10
• 1.3 Megapixel Sensor
• Patented Quadrus Technology
• Autofocus
ESP®Easy Setup Program: Single-point software
provides quick and easy setup and configuration
of all Microscan readers.
EZ Button: This performs reader setup and
configuration with no computer required.
Visible Indicators: Performance indicators
include “good read” green flash, LEDs and symbol
positioning tool.
Autofocus
For real time dynamic autofocus, position the symbol at
the center of the field of view,
and push the EZ button. The
Quadrus MINI automatically
adjusts focal distance and
sets internal parameters to
optimize the symbol.
Megapixel Processing
Each imager features megapixel processing for reading
multiple small, high density
codes, long 1D codes, and
decoding up to 100 symbols
in a single read capture.
Wide Field of View
Read symbols as large as 2”
(50.8 mm) square as close
as 1” (25.4 mm) with diffractive field illumination and
optional right angle mirror.
Options: ESD Safe, USB, EZ Trax Software
