Wired Barcode Scanner Kit LAG-9012 – $1,725

Scanner is mounted on machine and instantly reads the specimen barcode in front of it

Our wired barcode scanner is a continuously scan unit – the scanner is always on and ready to scan at the machine. The machine operator simply moves the cylinder past the scanner for immediate recognition on the ForneyLink HMI panel – providing instant specimen processing.

We recommend the wireless unit if you plan to enable our Discard Dashboard functionality.
