High-Speed Scanning.
The FM431 Barracuda Pro adds high motion tolerance to the FM430 Series. Higher pass rates are designed to unlock opportunities in manufacturing and automated vending applications. The high speed also opens up new possibilities for POS fix mount scanning. Conveyors moving codes past the scanners and automated/robotic applications, where codes are constantly and steadily on the move, are ideal for the FM431.

Dual Aiming.
The FM431 Barracuda Pro packs both laser and LED aiming options into the same device. In customer-facing applications, LED aiming protects clients from harmful lasers. At the same time, the laser engine pinpoints the exact position of the scanner for presenting codes under or for use in some automated applications.

Good Read Notification.
The FM431 Barracuda Pro alerts the customer about a successful scan when using laser aiming by flooding the code with light from the LED aimer. This is useful for fixed-mount applications where the beep is not wanted or if the environment is too loud for the beep alone.

All Weather Conditions.
The FM431 Barracuda Pro has Advanced Exposure control to adapt to light volume, including bright reflection on the barcodes. The IP54 sealing and operating temperature range from -20 to +60 degrees making this Newland’s best all-around fixed mount scanner suitable for most outdoor applications.

Fast Communication.
The FM431 Barracuda Pro has a higher send-and-receive communication speed making it even more responsive to the demands of a host solution.

Easy to Mount.
Thanks to the mounting points in the base of the scanner, the FM431 Barracuda Pro is easy to fix and install. The dimensions are identical to the FM430 Series scanner, making it plug-and-play into existing designs in case upgrades are needed to take advantage of all the FM431 Barracuda Pro has to offer.
