Targeting Barcode with Laser Aimer

A visible laser aimer with red cross-hair aiming pattern is projected by MT86VD(w) 2D imager to help user target barcodes with ease. Programmable by both configuration barcodes and serial commands, the brightness of laser aimer can be adjusted according to user preferences and environmental conditions. Compliant to Class 1 of Laser Safety Standard, the laser aimer of MT86VD(w) 2D imager is safe under all conditions of normal use and causes no harm to the naked eyes.
