Honeywell has announced the release of the Voyager 1602g pocket 2D Bluetooth scanner, which enables affordable, high-performance scanning for mobile workers.
The compact Voyager 1602g scanner easily fits into the pocket, but is said to come with high-performance barcode scanning technology found in full-size handheld scanners.
The ergonomically designed Voyager 1602g scanner can be coupled with tablet-based retail POS systems, mobile point-of-sale, inventory management, backroom/stockroom, in-store customer engagement and even non-retail scanning applications such as transportation applications and sales force automation.
“The worker of today is not deskbound, or tied to one station. They are moving throughout a retail store, or warehouse, or on a delivery route, and need technologies that enable mobile productivity and accuracy,” said Tony Repaci, country manager, Australia & New Zealand, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity. “The Voyager 1602g scanner will allow mobile workers across a variety of sectors to accurately record the movements of goods in an easy and efficient way.”
Featuring an oversized scan button, soft touch plastics, white LED aimer and a lightweight design, the Voyager 1602g makes scanning easy. The device is capable of reading barcodes off smartphone screens — mobile coupons, e-tickets, digital wallets, and digital loyalty cards.
The Voyager 1602g incorporates Bluetooth wireless technology that allows freedom of movement of up to ten metres, and a user-replaceable battery tested to last for 2,250 scans in a single twelve-hour shift, which can be rechargeable on a standard microUSB.
The Voyager 1602g can also be affordably upgraded to 2D scanning anytime in the future.
