Opticon M5

M5 Presentation Barcode Scanners

The Opticon M5 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Honeywell Genesis.

The Opticon M5 barcode scanner adds 2D presentation scanning to your checkstands at a great price. The 2D imager reads standard UPC barcodes from up to 6" away at 50 fps, so you can be sure products are read every time. A tilting base on the M5 lets you aim the optimal scanning area, improving barcode scanning efficiency. For stubborn barcodes, simply pick up the M5 and use the trigger mode to get a better read.

The M5 is built to meet the needs and durability requirements of retail scanning while avoiding excesses that can drive up prices. A rugged design keeps out dust and prevents the odd water spill from damaging the barcode scanner. It also can survive drops of 5-feet to concrete, further extending the longevity of the scanner. If you need a fast retail 2D barcode scanner on a budget, the Opticon M5 is a great choice.
