CCD Scanner

CCD Scanner


The ComputerWise CCD-81T is a rugged handheld barcode scanner which features a high performance CCD optical sensor. The high reliability of CCD-81T scanner stands upon a design with no moving parts and a completely solid state scanner system.


The unit operates on a 660nm visible red LED array which illuminates the barcode being scanned with bright visible light beam to insure rapid and accurate decoding of bar codes up to 82 millimeters wide. The standard model produces a TTL output signal of the scanned data in a wand emulation format (Code 39). The standard model also is equipped with a DIN-5 connector that is compatible on all ComputerWise TNET Terminals, Ethernet Terminals, and Ethernet Workstations


Other models are available with RS232 or PC keyboard wedge interfaces. Re-configuration of the CCD-81T can be easily done by scanning barcodes in the users manual.

Features and Benefits

Interfaces to any Computerwise shop floor terminal or data collection device via the DIN- 5 bar code port.

Standard model is TTL wand emulation; other models have RS232 or PC keyboard wedge.

Durable for a rough working environment. The CCD-81T can withstand a drop of one meter onto a concrete surface.

The detachable connecting cable gives flexibility and eases maintenance.


  • Low-power consumption: < 60mA
  • Long depth of field: > 3"
  • High scan rate: >/= 200 scan/sec.
  • Easy configuration procedure.
  • Intelligent scanning adjusts for the inherent variations in bar codes and lighting conditions.
