The X-pattern design allows a single DX8200A to do the work of two DS8100A’s for many applications. Setup is thus quicker and simpler thanks to the precalibration built into the DX8200A. Connectivity to the most popular networks is assured with Profibus and Devicenet available in addition to Ethernet communications.

The DX8200A is based on an innovative 3-diode structure that offers an unbeatable real time depth of field. As a result of improved ASTRA™ technology that increases its already impressive performance, 3 laser diodes are elctronically switched from one to the other, depending on the bar code on an object of any possible shape and in any position, since as the DX8200A focuses on a bar code and not on the object profile.

The PACKTRACK™ function reduces minimum object gap and increases system throughput. The SW platfrom of DX8200A, based on GENIUS™ configuration program, permits 100% control of scanner functionality via SW.


Improved connectivity thanks to the introduction of built-in Ethernet with implemented TCP-IP, Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols. DIGITECH™ Digitech technology permits full SW control over signal processing parameters Scanner setup can therefore be optimized quite simply by loading the right SW recipe, thus enabling excellent performance in all reading conditions.

Ease of use is increased due to a practical display with keyboard, offering a simple and complete human machine interface without PC Fully compatible with the DS8100A, the 6000 series (DS6300, DS6400) and the SC6000 industrial controller.
