Our 2D scanner supports the Dot code. 

Dot Code is a type of 2D barcode that utilizes a rectangular array of dots to encode data. It was initially designed to provide a reliable machine-readable code for high-speed inkjet or laser printing technologies.

Dr. Andrew Longacre developed DotCode, and it was officially standardized by AIM, a global industry standards organization, in 2009. The most recent specifications for DotCode are available from AIM under

Our 2D scanner features an append function that allows for sequential reading of multiple barcodes, consolidating them into a single batch output.

Supports Chinese/Japanease output

​支援中文/ 日文輸出


Furthermore, our 2D scanner supports a wide range of character encoding formats, including Big5, UTF-8, and non-UTF-8 codes. This means that if a QR code contains Chinese or Japanese characters, our scanner can effortlessly read and output them without any complications. No additional software installation is required to handle these characters effectively.
