IDAutomation 2D USB Barcode Scanner Features:
Excellent Performance: This 2D Barcode Imager outperforms similar models
in quality, range, performance and price.
- Quality Verification: PQA (Print Quality
Assessment) is pre-installed in the scanner
to verify the print quality and proper encoding of 2D and USPS barcodes.
- Long Range Scanning and Focus: Average size barcodes
are easily decoded when pulling the trigger anywhere from 3" to
10" away, while many low cost 2D barcode readers require pulling the
trigger at precise, specific distances from the barcode for a successful read.
- Ergonomically Designed: Comfortable, lightweight and designed
to fit easily in the hand for extended use.
- GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) Decoding: This 2D Barcode Scanner decodes the FNC1 codes in
GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcodes according to the
Application Identifier Standard.
- Automatic Decoding: The SC7-USB will decode the FNC1's,
such as ]D2 and ]C1, by simply
enabling certain settings.
- Decodes Lower ASCII Characters: Compatible
with the IDAutomation
ASCII String Decoder when Control+ASCII
Mode is enabled.

Programming the IDAutomation USB 2D Barcode Scanner:
By default, the IDAutomation 2D Barcode Scanner is programmed to enable the
most popular features available, and can scan the most popular barcode types
such as Data Matrix, PDF417, Intelligent Mail, QR Code and other Postal barcode
types. To modify the operation of the scanner, scan the appropriate programming
barcode from the
Online User Manual
directly from the screen, eliminating the need to print the manual.

To Scan Data Into Applications tutorial.
Encoded Data Verification for lower
When the IDAutomation 2D USB Barcode Scanner is used to verify or transmit
lower ASCII control characters and functions, such as what is documented in the
MaxiCode Barcode FAQ, the Control+ASCII Mode must be enabled by scanning
the barcode below. Lower ASCII values may be viewed with IDAutomation's
Scanner ASCII String Decoder.

About The 2D PQA (Print Quality Assessment):
A unique feature of this scanner is the 2D PQA (Print Quality Assessment)
Tool, which verifies and grades several attributes of a barcode symbol.
When enabled, PQA works on all 2D barcode types including Data Matrix, PDF417, MaxiCode, Aztec and QR-Code in addition to
USPS Intelligent Mail. The
PQA report is transmitted as a second beep after the barcode data. Using the
PQA Capture Add-In for Excel
will allow users to collect the data in a spread-sheet for further analysis if
or disable the PQA feature by scanning the barcodes below directly from the screen.
Video Tutorial: Enable Print Quality Assessment [PQA] in SC7
When verifying barcode symbols with PQA, be sure
to position the scanner directly over the barcode
at an appropriate distance, such as 5 inches as other angles
or distances may incorrectly lower the grade in terms of height,
width and gaps.
After enabling this feature and scanning
some slightly defective barcodes, the IDAutomation Lab received the results below, which
may be viewed by scanning the barcode with IDAutomation's
Free Barcode Scanner
ASCII String Decoder or by placing the cursor in a text editor such as
Notepad or Word.
