The easy way to add barcode scanning to Windows 10 tablets


Our industry-leading barcode scanning software, enables you to capture and communicate accurate and timely field data without purchasing an additional handheld device. Using the aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablet’s built-in camera, 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.

The AegexScan software automatically captures, scans and embeds the data in user-defined applications, ranging from Microsoft Excel to custom ERP systems.

A free 30-day trial of AegexScan is included on every aegex10TM tablet for shipments after March 1, 2019. If your aegex10TM does not already have AegexScan, or to see how well the AegexScan software compares to traditional barcode devices, click below to order a trial copy.
