StrataScan(TM) bar-code reader incorporates holographic technology and produces an omni-directional scan pattern targeted for random label applications. StrataScan uses holographic lens technology to create multiple scan lines at different layers for a depth of field up to 42 inches. Combined with a high-speed processor, StrataScan read speeds of up to 300 ft/min. A single holographic disk, the only moving part, replaces the focusing lens, light-collection lens, and rotating mirror of a standard laser scanner.
