KoamTac® Extends Product Line Of Miniature Data Collectors with New KDC®350 Model
KoamTac KDC350 R2 employs the latest in Honeywell's Adaptus™ N5600 2D imager technology for unparalleled speed and accuracy; new battery design and additional charging cradle option boost
PRINCETON, NJ — KoamTac®, Inc., today announced the new KDC350R2 miniature Bluetooth Data Collector built with the Honeywell N5600 series of 2D image engines. The powerful Adaptus Gen6 imaging platform of the N5600 continues to set the standard for speed, accuracy, and optimal reading performance.
"Just like new cars with higher performance engines and better gas mileage, there have been significant improvements in bar code scan engine performance over the last couple of years," explained Dr. Hanjin Lee, president and CEO of KoamTac, the Princeton-based manufacturer of linear and 2-dimensional image-based Bluetooth barcode scanners and card readers for smartphones and tablets.
"We pride ourselves with being quick to integrate new technology when it comes to market. The Honeywell Adaptus N5600 scan engines are powerful and top-of-the-line, which means they will fully satisfy the needs of our customers who work in aggressive scanning environments and need high performance reading of all bar code types. For longer-range reading of linear bar codes, the KDC350 R2 will also be available with the high performance SE960 laser engine from Motorola."
The IP65-rated KDC350R2 also features an easily removable and rechargeable battery - one that can be charged via a 4-slot charging cradle or the company's new 1-slot charging cradle. The original KDC350, which remains available in the KoamTac lineup, utilizes a battery that can be replaced for lifecycle management purposes, but is not separately chargeable.
"Many of our customers need to charge their KDC350 devices at the point of application, not en masse in the back room. They will find our new 1-slot charger compact and convenient for these installations," said Dr. Lee. "The new battery design can be charged on a stand-alone basis, maximizing uptime for applications that must run for multiple shifts around the clock. With an extra battery in the rotation, you can continue to use your KDC350R2 to scan, keeping the workflow moving and saving your company time and money."
