Megapixel Barcode Scanner
Armed with Newlands cutting-edge 2D megapixel barcode technology, the FR50 Pearl has an excellent scanning performance on 1D and 2D barcodes. Its higher resolution means even small barcodes can be read from a longer distance. Inverse and rectangular 2D codes, even if printed with challenges, are no issue.

Sophisticated design.
Designed to be the jewel in the crown, the FR50 Pearl is made with high-quality materials and presented to be the next generation scanner. As a stunner in both in black or white (project only), it blends into its environment perfectly, or can function as a true eyecatcher. The stationary scanner is particularly suited to non-food retail or boutique point-of-sale countertops.

IR & light sensors.
The FR50 Pearl has an excellent combination of both an IR sensor and a light sensor. The light sensor works best in well-lit conditions, sensing the changes in light as a barcode is presented to it. The IR sensor has a shorter range but activates the scanner even in a poorly lit environment.

Automatic Exposure Control (AEC)
The sensor in the FR50 Pearl automatically adjusts the duration of the light it projects, adapting to the glare reflected back off the barcode. Switching from scanning a code printed low-contrast on paper to scanning codes presented on highly reflective phone screens, is no issue. This makes the Pearl a great solution for customer-facing applications.

Mount anywhere.
The FR50 Pearl's magnetic socket clamps easily and firmly to a variety of mounting options. Offering not only versatility in mounting style and function, the simple design of the scanner's connection point also makes for effortless cleaning with our recommended cleaning solutions.

Safe aiming.
Whether staff-attended or self-service, the FR50 Pearl uses safe LED aiming to help position the presented barcodes without any of the health risks associated with laser-class aiming solutions.
