Product Description:

Honeywell MS4980 Vuquest 2D USB Compact Area-Imaging Scanner

USB Kit:
1D, PDF417, 2D gray scanner (MS4980-124), 2.9m (9.5') straight USB Type A cable (52-52559x-3-FR), AU power supply (46-00528) and documentation


Honeywell’s MS4980 compact area-imaging scanner offers aggressive scanning of all 1D, PDF and 2D bar codes in a lightweight, durable and portable form factor. The scanner also features a sleek and elegant design that blends seamlessly in retail environments.

Automatic infrared object detection enables robust and easy presentation scanning, while patented Code Gate technology provides precise targeting and scanning of closely grouped bar codes.

The MS4980 delivers an array of advanced features that enhance productivity. Aggressive reading of bar codes on highly reflective surfaces, such as mobile phone screens, eliminates the need to purchase additional specialty hardware. A 1.2 mega-pixel CMOS sensor allows the scanner to capture high resolution images of signatures, identification cards and personal checks.

An intelligent multi-interface design distinguishes the MS4980 from competitive scanners. Total Freedom expands scanner functionality by allowing image processing, decoding and formatting plug-ins to be loaded directly to the MS4980 instead of the host system.

The MS4980 is small enough to be held in the palm or worn on the back of the hand. Its compact size also allows it be mounted anywhere, including in self-service scanning kiosks.


• Aggressive Pass-Through Scanning: Enhances productivity by enabling cashiers to capture bar codes moving rapidly past the scan window
• Flexible Licensing Solution: Meets diverse scanning requirements by offering models with limited decoding capabilities—purchase decoding licenses to enable additional functionality as the need arises
• Infrared Object Detection: Minimizes operator fatigue by providing hands-free presentation scanning
