Product Overview

The EA21 not only provides high performance 1D and 2D bar code scanning at standard range but goes beyond: With its wide angle and large sensor it can be used for various image capture and image analysis applications.

By combining 2D barcode scanning and Megapixel document imaging into a pico size form factor, EA21 is the ideal solution for mobile products with the most stringent mechanical constraints. This provides freedom in your total product design to achieve the smallest and lightest result possible.

EA21 is very flexible and captures images in 99% of lighting conditions. Intermec's highly visible laser aimer ensures that the user can easily target images and barcodes. The laser projects both a laser pointer and a four corner framer and additional LEDs provide flood illumination.

Powered by Intermec patented decoding and leading edge hardware, the EA21 is designed for intensive scanning usage on standard 1D and 2D barcodes for maximum scanning productivity and accuracy. EA21 is available with the industry smallest USB 2.0 decode board (ED40 High Performance decode board). It does not only increase decoding performances but it is the ideal choice to transfer efficiently videos and images with the EA21.

EA21 is part of the 2D imager Intermec family: It is designed for inter-changeability; it is plug compatible with the Intermec EA11 and EA20X 2D Imagers. It uses the same decode board and communication protocol. Engineering efforts can therefore be leveraged and development time reduced.

For larger volume requirements, a reference design option is available to optimize space constraints even further. EA21 is flash upgradable and is configurable on-line or off-line, to best match your product requirements and be ready to upgrade to the latest market demands.

As for all Intermec scan engines, EA21 is designed to work in the most hostile environments. It operates from total darkness to full sunshine over a large temperature range and complies with the most stringent standards for shock and vibration.

By choosing Intermec, you are choosing to work with the industry's imaging market leader: With more than 40 years of experience, Intermec offers the widest range of 2D Imagers and maintains a dedicated in house engineering team specialized in imaging and decoding, securing your partnership for the long term.
