Lasers (1D and 2D), CCDs and Linear Imagers are the main types of barcode scanner families available today. The most common entry level scanners are close range CCD scanners.

There are usually several variations of read range, scanning resolution, speed and ruggedness within each family to cater for different applications.

Datalogic QuickScan Lite QW2100


• Wide scan angle

• Laser-like thinner and extended scan line

• Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ technology

for good-read feedback

• Two interface options: USB or Keyboard Wedge /


• Built with over molded rubber to protect the

imager when dropped

• Compact and multi-position stand

• Water and Particulate Sealing Rating: IP42

• Drop Resistance to 1.5 m / 5.0 ft



The QW2100 imager is small, lightweight and its ergonomic design is comfortable to use during daily operations. It offers snappy reading performance on most 1D bar codes and features a wide scanning angle with an extended scanning line which is perfect for capturing longer and wider bar codes typically found on utility bills and used by manufacturers of electronic parts. Additionally, the scanning line is thinner and brighter, allowing users to scan at wide angles without having to increase the scanning distance.
