The Heron, based on the "instinctive reading distance" concept (from near contact to over 20 cm), includes the "green spot" (Datalogic patent application), which provides "good reading" feedback directly on the code, where the user usually tends to be looking.
The stand included in the package allows the reader to be used in hands-free mode. If placed correctly in the stand, the reader beeps and automatically switches to hands-free mode.
The green spot remains on to show the operator where to position the code under the Heron for quick and intuitive reading. As a result, Heron is effective as a hand-held reader and presentation scanner. Available in PS2, USB or RS232 configurations.
