Atlanta, Ga., USA – (February 5, 2019) Aegex Technologies announces the release of aegexscan barcode scanning software that enables the capture of accurate and timely field data in hazardous areas without purchasing an additional handheld device. Using the aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablet’s built-in camera, the aegexscan software automatically captures, scans and embeds data in user-defined applications, ranging from Microsoft Excel to custom ERP systems.

aegexscan is a user-friendly Windows utility that can identify multiple different barcode standards. Unlike other camera-driven systems, the aegexscan purpose-built application uses robust algorithms to easily find, auto-discriminate and decode barcodes up to two meters away in varying light conditions, regardless of barcode condition or image quality.

aegexscan can be used in Class I Div 1 or ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 areas for activities including:

  • accounting for the correct number/type of petrochemicals in storage facility
  • selecting the correct devices/technologies for use during a HazMat emergency
  • ensuring the correct parts are repaired/replaced in a hazardous area
  • auditing fire safety and extinguishers
  • adding the correct ingredients in chemical mixing
  • recording inventory of materials in any hazardous operation
  • many other applications

Some key benefits of aegexscan include:
  • Versatility – scan directly with your tablet rather than external scanner or expensive hardware scan module
  • Windows 10 – maximize compatibility with full Windows UWP compliance
  • Speed – scan barcodes in fractions of a second for easy data collection
  • Clarity – increase read rates of damaged or poorly printed barcodes
  • Accuracy – reduce errors associated with manual entry or low-quality decoding software
  • Omni-directionality – increase first-pass reads and ease-of-use with true 360-degree reading
