Aggressive X-Mode algorithms allow decoding of difficult direct part marks (DPM) safely, and at close proximity, on static-sensitive electronics components and assemblies. The MINI Hawk's unique nickel plating and ESD-safe labels and cabling make it the only ESD-safe solution certified for use in ISO Class 3 clean rooms.

Other features include:  available in high-resolution and high-speed models; close-range decoding (1.3 in./33 mm); out-of-the-box calibration; autofocus capability.
