This feature controls the laser beam width to prevent incorrect reading of adjacent barcodes.
Laser Focus Function
When multiple barcodes are scanned simultaneously, the scanned barcode is briefly highlighted with laser light to visually indicate to the user which barcode was decoded.
Vibrator Alert Function
In addition to the LED indicator and buzzer, a vibrator alert is also used to indicate a successful scan. This is useful for noisy environments or where there are several users in the same location.
Center Trigger Key
A trigger key in the most useful position allows comfortable one-hand scanning. This trigger key functions as an Enter key during ordinary input and as a Return key during text input.
