DENSO ADC announced the latest version of its QK Series of presentation barcode scanners. The new QK30 scanner is specifically designed to read 1‑D and 2-D barcodes displayed on the LCD screens of cell phones and other mobile devices, as well as codes printed on paper.

“The demand for fast, reliable scanning of mobile LCD screens continues to increase,” said Fran Labun, vice president, Sales Group, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc. “Our new QK30 scanner takes this technology to its furthest edge yet.”

The compact device is 50 percent thinner than previous models, yet has a 30 percent larger scanning area, allowing it to quickly scan large-screen smartphones. Applications include e‑tickets, e-coupons and e‑membership cards.

Unlike conventional scanners, the QK30 can read LCD screens with differing contrasts, colors and reflections, even under poor lighting conditions. Both countertop and in-counter versions are available.
