The evolution of scanner technology proves exactly how far facility operations have come. Look no further than the shift from large, cumbersome units of the past to today’s more compact and data-driven models.

Of course, the rapid acceleration of change is all too apparent with advancement after advancement in both hardware and software.

Fact is, a work team’s overall performance and productivity are universally impacted by the technologies deployed on a daily/nightly/ or even 24/7 basis. A critical element of any warehouse operation is the ability to scan barcodes effectively, especially when adverse circumstances or hostile environmental conditions get in the way.

5 Ways Warehouse Scanning Receives an Immediate Boost

Warehouse workers

Does this innovative ring scanner compare favorably to the more familiar traditional, hand-held units? The answer is an unqualified yes. And much, much more.  Company productivity receives multiple boosts and gains from the following five features and benefits:

      • Honeywell’s Ultra-Slim area-imaging engine allows for aggressive, omnidirectional 1D and 2D barcode scanning.
      • Excellent motion tolerance and fast decode speeds for a variety of barcode scanning needs.
      • Improved scanning performance on poor-quality or damaged barcodes,  saving the company both time and money.
      • Multi-sensory feedback is part of the innovative design via a vibrator, beeper, LEDs, and an aimer.
      • Know at a glance status: workers can immediately see scanner function and status. The scanner features LEDs on the top of the unit to indicate linking status, decoding state and battery condition/life.

Two-Piece Design Blends Comfort And Efficiency In One

Do your current scanners help or hurt the cause? Effective scanners combine worker comfort with optimal scanning capabilities.

The low-profile, lightweight, flexible design of this ring scanner delivers ultimate freedom of movement in any environment, setting or facility. That means barcodes can now be scanned quickly, safely, and comfortably, all while both hands remain free for additional or simultaneous tasks.

The 8670 Wireless Ring Scanner features an ergonomic two-piece design. First, the soft elastomeric finger and wrist straps are designed specifically to not only provide maximum comfort but also to eliminate any hygiene concerns. That’s because they are impervious to moisture, don’t absorb sweat, are easily cleaned, and are interchangeable at a moment’s notice.

The second component of this two-piece system is a Bluetooth scanner module. All a worker needs to do to get up and running is mount the device’s small, lightweight scanner on his or her finger and then wear the scanner module on the wrist.

Performance When it Counts Where it Counts 

Standard warehousing operations are not kind to handheld and wearable scanners. Just imagine everything they go through, often daily … from extreme temperatures to moist and dusty environments. From unexpected high electrostatic discharges to harsh use events like dropping the scanner on concrete or high impact hits to metal racks and conveyor belts.

All the more reason you need a scanner with a rugged design and reliability to handle the unexpected. This wireless ring scanner provides optimal scanning performance no matter what the conditions.

The wireless capabilities of the scanner assure worker productivity from the very beginning. With typical use, the unit will last up to 10 hours at a rate of 8 scans/minute. When the scanner needs recharging, the expected charge time is only 4 hours.

All so business and productivity stay on an upwards trajectory. And so too does profitability.

Advanced Technology Comes Standard

The 8670 Wireless Ring Scanner is easily paired with Bluetooth devices such as computers, laptops, tablets, and phones. What’s more,  bluetooth wireless technology provides freedom of movement up to 10 m (33 ft) from the host device.
