The imager has a view finder that projects a bright red or green aiming beam
that corresponds to the imager's horizontal field of view. The aiming beam
should be centered over the barcode, but it can be positioned in any direction
for a good read.
2D Matrix symbol
The aiming beam is smaller when the imager is closer to the code and larger
when it is farther from the code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil
size) should be read closer to the unit. Symbologies with larger bars or ele-
ments (mil size) should be read farther from the unit. To read single or multiple
symbols (on a page or on an object), hold the imager at an appropriate distance
from the target, pull the trigger, and center the aiming beam on the symbol. If
the code being scanned is highly reflective (e.g., laminated), it may be neces-
sary to tilt the code +5° to prevent unwanted reflection.
