DENSO Introduces New Handheld 2-D Barcode Scanner with Bluetooth® 2.1
Press release date: April 1, 2014
LONG BEACH, Calif.-- DENSO ADC announced a new AT27Q-SB handheld barcode scanner, the latest addition to its AT20Q-Series high-speed devices. The AT27Q-SB offers scanning of 2-D barcodes, such as the QR Code®, as well as 1-D barcodes. Bluetooth® 2.1 technology enables wireless communication with mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, in addition to traditional PCs.
“The market is quickly moving toward mobile solutions,” said Fran Labun, vice president, Sales Group, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc. “This new Bluetooth-equipped scanner lets our customers communicate wirelessly with both mobile devices and PCs, freeing them from being tethered to a fixed location.”
A high-speed shutter eliminates the effect of camera shake, so barcodes can be scanned from any direction within 360 degrees, for increased operator efficiency. Advanced anti-reflection technology allows reliable reading of barcodes on the LCD screens of mobile phones.
Use of the latest DENSO algorithms and an increased number of pixels enables trouble-free scanning of wide barcodes. An advanced-design scanning engine handles 1-D barcodes with module resolutions down to 0.125 mm and 2-D barcodes down to 0.167 mm, giving the AT27Q-SB an extended application range.
The compact, lightweight and ergonomic design of the AT27Q-SB makes it easy to hold and use, reducing operator fatigue.
Antimicrobial materials incorporated into the AT27Q-SB’s housing helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi, making the AT27Q-SB ideal for applications where devices are shared.
The AT27Q-SB is also highly durable, with a rugged, shock-absorbing construction that withstands rigorous drop testing onto concrete. In addition, the device features IP42 dust- and water-resistant protection, as well as a connector-cable locking mechanism that helps prevent damage to the connector and cable.
