The Matrix 300N™ Barcode Reader

The Matrix 300N™ is an ultra-compact image based barcode reader purpose built for superior performance in high speed and Direct Part Marking (DPM) applications. With a high resolution sensor and ultra-fast image acquisition at 1.3 mega pixel/60 frames per second, the Matrix 300N is the next-generation compact imager in the Matrix family.

The optical system incorporates a liquid lens module for electronic focus control. As a result the reader offers automatic focus adjustment without the addition of moving parts. The integrated illuminator is embedded over the entire front surface of the reader. This innovative design allows for bright and uniform illumination of the barcode. The lighting design uses both bright field and dark field patterns resulting in optimal illumination on normal, etched, highly reflective or textured surfaces.

With exceptionally small physical dimensions and a rotating connector, the Matrix 300N™ can be easily integrated into the tightest spaces. In addition to its compact, flexible design, the Matrix
300N™ offers cost-effective communication options with Power over Ethernet (POE) connectivity through a standard Ethernet connection. The next generation imager is also built with on-board PROFINET-IO and Ethernet I/P, eliminating the need for external communication boxes or converters for increased flexibility and cost effectiveness.
