PL Hardware Decoder Family

Hardware Decoders for Zebra 2-D Imagers

GET MAXIMUM INTEGRATION FLEXIBILITY WITH ZEBRA’S HARDWARE DECODER FAMILY

With Zebra's PL family of hardware decoders for Zebra 2D imagers, you can choose the right decoder for each and every one of your products, based on your criteria – size, form factor, features or cost-efficiency.

EXTEND THE FUNCTIONALITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS

  • choose your size and form factor

    There is a PL hardware decoder that will fit in your product designs, no matter how much or how little room is available. The PL family includes standard size boards, miniaturized boards and a Ball Grid Array (BGA) microchip. Also, you can select a separate circuit board that connects to your board or a microchip soldered to the main circuit board.

  • pay only for the technology you need

    Select the decoder that gives you the right feature set. The PL Decoder Family Series offers standard performance on virtually any barcode — 1D and 2D — as well as the excellent motion tolerance and the ability to capture images and video footage. Some decoders add features such as signature capture, OCR and multicode scanning.

  • Gain Control Over Product Costs and Margins

    For your cost-sensitive products, this family of hardware decoders allows you to stay within your projected budget, yet still get the same high quality data capture that has made Zebra the industry leader in barcode scanning and image capture.
