Metlitsky Boris, Krichever Mark J: Bar code reader.. Symbol Technologies, September 5, 1990: EP0385478-A2 (59 worldwide citation)

In a bar code reader, a field of view which includes a symbol to be read is imaged upon a light-responsive array such as a CCD imager device (12). The output of this array is transferred to a memory (20) array to provide a bit-mapped type of binary representation of the image including the symbol. T ...

A symbol scanning system which adaptively changes scanning system parameters including light beam pattern and focus to improve barcode readability. The scanning system including: a scanner, responsive to coordinate control signals, for directing a light beam in a pattern at a symbol at a predetermin ...

Metlitsky Boris, Swartz Jerome, Barkan Edward, Shepard Howard, Goren David, Biuso Tony: Light emitting diode scanner. Symbol Technologies, February 5, 1992: GB2246653-A (15 worldwide citation)

A portable scanning head emits and receives light from a light-emitting diode (10) to read symbols, such as bar-code symbols. The optics (12,18) within the scanner are operative for focusing a light beam (11) and the view of a light sensor (17) in different planes (13,22) exteriorly of a scanner hou ...

Krichever Mark J, Metlitsky Boris, Swartz Jerome: Bar code symbol readers with variable spot size and/or working distance.. Symbol Technologies, August 3, 1988: EP0276589-A2 (13 worldwide citation)

Systems for changing the working distance and/or the beam spot size of an outgoing laser beam scanned across symbols to be read by a bar code symbol reader are disclosed.

Krichever Mark J, Metlitsky Boris: Scan pattern generator for bar code symbol readers.. Symbol Technologies, July 6, 1988: EP0273554-A2 (12 worldwide citation)

Multiple scan line pattern generators including bidirectional scan patterns of mutually parallel scan lines, and scan patterns composed of intersecting lines, are superimposed over bar code symbols to be read. At least one of the scan lines is automatically moved closer to and further away from a re ...
