6th Generation UIMG Technology

The EM27 is armed with Newland’s latest-generation scanning technology. Sporting a new decoding algorithm on its CPU processor, the engine delivers excellence no matter what code it’s facing. Additionally, it allows the firmware to be adapted to your specific environment and application.

Optimized for On-Screen codes

The EM27 is ready for any smartphone or tablet presented to it. The wide scan angle and optimization for near-distance scanning match the intuitive way end-users present their device to a scanner. This keeps lines moving and operations running smoothly.

Super Slim Form Factor

As Newland's smallest customer-facing scanner yet, the EM27 is perfect for integration into slim, modern designs.

EasySet Configuration.

The EM27 is compatible with our master configuration software EasySet. Built for Windows OS, this software is a useful tool to integrators for building and testing configurations, cloning and deploying configurations, and updating scanner firmware.
