Product Overview
The Intermec EA20X is the first 2D bar code scan engine on the market that combines the future proofing of 2D imaging with the extended reading range of a 1D laser scan engine (up to 80cm/31.5in on a 0.5mm/20mil 1D bar code). It is the ideal 2D scan engine for mobile solutions, particularly for in-premise applications (picking and put-away, inventory management, shipping and receiving, cross-docking applications).

Powered by Intermec patented decoding and leading edge hardware, EA20X is designed for intensive scanning usage and reaches 200 scans (1D mode) and 60 scan/s in (2D mode): Productivity is ensured. The EA20X scans 1D, 2D, composite and postal codes; it also captures images and successfully copes with high resolution, damaged, poorly printed or overlayed codes.

Industry standards are driving a fast adoption of 2D symbologies across multiple industries: choosing the EA20X 2D scan engine ensures long term investment protection as it reads any standard 1D and 2D bar code. However, in many applications the range of a standard 2D imager is too limited. The EA20X solves this issue by providing the advantages of a 2D scanner without compromising on the range.

Intermec chooses a highly visible laser aimer to ensure that the user can easily target the barcode to read, even at long distances. Equipped with both a laser pointer and a four-corner framer, as well as flood illumination, EA20X improves scanning productivity and accuracy. It reads bar codes omni-directionally at longer ranges, and a greater diversity of lighting conditions and angles.

The EA20X joins the Intermec 2D family of engines and is plug compatible with the popular EA11 and EA21 engines. Developers can leverage their design efforts as well as their market breadth with the highly popular interchangeability of these engines. Everything has been done to simplify the integration of the EA20X engine: compact size, low power 3.3 V operation, and industry-standard interface. The EA20X shares the same Intermec Scanner Control Protocol as the other Intermec engines allowing end users to leverage their integration and design efforts across multiple OEM product platforms, reducing time to market and promoting easier product migration.

The EA20X is built to work in the most hostile environments. It operates from total darkness to full sunshine over a large temperature range and complies with the most stringent standards for shock and vibration. Its compact size and highly durable design make it ideal for integration into space constrained OEM devices with omni-directional near and far range requirements.
