The L-51X is the successor of the L-50X and comes with an even more advanced 2D imager. With auto-focus and a speed of 100 fps the engine in the L-51X is truly next gen, but maybe the most important part is not the technology inside but the design on the outside, where the L-51X gives you the option to insert your own logo or design of your choosing.
The L-51X is often used in service settings; healthcare for wristband scanning, retail for scanning products and scanning e-tickets from mobile phones at festivals or other social gatherings. The usage often decides what type of engine should be inside the scanner. Because of the complementary stand, that activates the auto trigger, it is often used to scan without hands.
How we describe the L-51X
The L-51X is a pistol-grip designed cabled scanner with a very advanced 2D imager that scans at a speed of 100 fps. Furthermore, the design makes it possible to add your own design, image or logo to the top of the scanner, this way you can use the product to expand your brand visibility or presence. This addition is truly unique and as far as we are aware only Opticon offers this option.
Moreover, this handheld scanner comes with USB or RS232 and a complimentary stand for hands free scanning. The product is sealed with a rating of IP42 that can withstand drops from up to 1.5 meters upon concrete. The scanner gives visual and non-visual feedback when a scan action is performed, telling you if the scanning action succeeded or not.
The L-51X has some core features, for example:
- Possibility to expand brand presence / visibility
- 1D & 2D scanning at a speed of 100 fps
- Well thought out design for comfortable use
- Comes with a stand for hands free scanning.
IP Ratings (Ingress Protection)
A two-digit number established by the International Electro Technical Commission, is used to provide an Ingress Protection rating to a piece of electronic equipment or to an enclosure for electronic equipment.
The protection class after EN60529 are indicated by short symbols that consist of the two code letters IP and a code numeral for the amount of the protection.
Example: IP65 (NEMA 4)
The two digits represent different forms of environmental influence:
• The first digit represents protection against ingress of solid objects.
• The second digit represents protection against ingress of liquids.
The larger the value of each digit, the greater the protection. As an example, a product rated IP54 would be better protected against environmental factors than another similar product rated as IP42.
Ingress of solid objects
Ingress of liquids
|0||No protection||No protection|
|1||Protected against solid objects over 50mm e.g. hands, large tools.||Protected against vertically falling drops of water or condensation.|
|2||Protected against solid objects over 12.5mm e.g. hands, large tools.||Protected against falling drops of water, if the case is disposed up to 15 from vertical.|
|3||Protected against solid objects over 2.5mm e.g. wire, small tools.||Protected against sprays of water from any direction, even if the case is disposed up to 60from vertical.|
|4||Protected against solid objects over 1.0mm e.g. wires.||Protected against splash water from any direction.|
|5||Limited protection against dust ingress.
(no harmful deposit)
|Protected against low pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.|
|6||Totally protected against dust ingress.||Protected against high pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.|
|7||N/A||Protected against short periods of immersion in water.|
|8||N/A||Protected against long, durable periods of immersion in water.|
|9k||N/A||Protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature spray downs.|
Which type of symbologies can be decoded?
Mind that all scanners/engines that will decode 2D symbologies wil ALSO decode 1D barcodes.
These are samples to show what is meant by this feature.
Always consult the leaflet and/or datasheet to determine exactly which symbologies are supported!
Please contact us for assistance when in doubt about scanning/decoding functionality.
USB type connections (most common):
subD9 type serial/RS232C connections:
RJ45 type serial/RS232C connection:
