MS5145 Eclipse

Honeywell’s MS5145 Eclipse


is a low cost laser-based alternative to

CCD scanners. Its compact form factor and high end feature set simplify
its use in a variety of applications at the press of a button.

Eclipse is a single-line, hand-held laser scanner. Equipped with Honeywell’s
patented CodeGate


technology, Eclipse can be used in a wide variety

of applications. CodeGate


technology allows the user to easily target

the desired bar code and complete data transmission with the press of a
single button. This makes Eclipse a perfect selection for menu scanning,
point-of-sale, document processing and inventory control.

With Honeywell’s state-of-the-art scanning technology, the MS5145
Eclipse has a longer working range and a wider scan field than a typical
CCD. The width of the scan line grows as the scanner moves further
away from bar codes.



is a unique feature employed by Eclipse in the absence

of infrared object detection. It provides the user with a pulsing laser
line for bar code detection. When a bar code is detected, the laser line
switches to a constant state to allow for scanning via CodeGate
