USB mode Response time

 

Awake time from deep low consumption: 203ms Turn on time from power off to power on 287ms

 

Awake time from deep low consumption: 117ms Turn on time from power off to power on 206ms

 

3, Software modification description :

 

After upgrading, it does not support reading Hanxin code.

The default maximum length of the QR code has been changed to 6144.

 

EAN-8 includes 2/5 digit extra code’s AIMID has been changed from “]E4…]E1..”/“]E4…]E 2..” to “]E4”.

 

 

Conclusion remark:

All the other parts including the installation screw holes, dimensions,

configuration codes, barcode decoding, protocol commands, etc are completely the same as the old V3.0 version.

 

Upgrade Effective date: 20th Oct. 2020

  When we choose a 2d QR barcode scanner for transportation like metro and bus station, usually we would consider: – Ensure passengers can scan their barcode and go through quickly, especially when the flow of people is large, and avoid long queues. For this: The scanning speed must be fast enough. when users show their […]
