Product Profile

Product Overview

  • Class-leading motion tolerance of 400 in/s delivers a distinct performance advantage, resulting in snappier scans and less hassle
  • Highly visible and safe LED-based aimer, ideal for customer-facing applications
  • Equipped with Intermec’s patented VESTA algorithm, extending 1D code read range by 60 percent
  • Future proofed—reads 1D & 2D matrix codes, captures signatures and images
  • Rugged design withstands extreme temperatures, vibrations and shock for extended use in tough environments
  • Compact dimensions, to fit into the tightest mechanical constraints
  • Flexible—wide range of integration options such as USB and RS 232 TTL interfaces, and full compatibility with the Intermec Communication Protocol

Differentiate Yourself with Unparalleled Performance

The Intermec EA31 is the industry’s first 2D imager combining an LED-based aimer with unmatched motion tolerance to deliver incredible scanning responsiveness. With omni-directional reading capabilities, the EA31 can achieve high read rates irrespective of bar code angle or orientation. This rapid scanning capability, combined with the safe LED-based aimer, make EA31 well suited for dynamic retail and customer-facing applications. To make integration easier, the EA31 also complies with the most stringent standards for shock and vibration and can successfully operate within a wide temperature range.

LED Aimer: Safe, Yet Pronounced

Equipped with a red LED aimer, EA31 fits the needs of customer-facing applications where lasers are often prohibited. Ideal applications include healthcare; retail point-of-sale; kiosks; and access control applications. By utilizing a highly visible 617 nm red LED scanning line, products that feature EA31 can be easily aimed, even in low light or indoor environments.

Patented Decoding and Range Boosting Technologies

The EA31 is an excellent choice for applications that call for the ability to read damaged, poorly printed, overlaid and colored bar codes. Integrated decoding software can correct for many bar code imperfections on-the-fly, resulting in an uncanny ability to interpret codes in difficult scanning situations. And VESTA technology extends scan range of EAN/UPC and Code 39 symbologies an average of 60 percent.

Additional value-added decoding capabilities include the ability to scan multiple bar codes in a single scan, as well as support for scanning in auto-trigger mode. Support for 1D, stacked, composite and 2D matrix codes provides assurance that designs incorporating EA31 will ready for the future, while supporting today’s industry standards.

Confidence Today; Protection for the Future

Compact size, standard interfaces, common development tools and software simplify integration of EA31 into space-constrained devices. When combined with Intermec ED30 and ED40 decode boards—the smallest USB board currently available—outstanding performance can be achieved in a very small footprint.
