DATALOGIC DL-AXIST ANDROID SCANNER
A robustly constructed Android scanner designed and built for busy working environments such as warehouses and distribution centres. With its toughened five-inch screen, this unit is ideal to run the Barcoder 250 Mobile Android App. As ES Consulting’s preferred scanner solution, the Datalogic DL-Axist comes equipped with an autofocus camera that has a built-in LED flash, making image capture straightforward – more so given the provision of a scanning window. Code scanning is catered for thanks to an imager making great use of Datalogic’s ‘Green Spot’ technology. Its SoftSpot™ allows a ‘soft trigger’ that can be programmed to execute a pre-determined task, which is a real timesaver. With an IP67 protection rating it can be dropped six feet - an optional rubber cover provides extra peace of mind. Being 3G and 4G-enabled ensures voice transmission is straightforward too, and its transmitter includes Bluetooth v4.0 with BLE for beacons.
DATALOGIC RIDA CORDLESS IMAGER
This ergonomically designed device is a cost-effective solution perfect for businesses who need to keep up with and proactively respond to customer demand. The Datalogic RIDA Cordless Imager is ideal for waste reduction, stock takes, speed of delivery, and keeping costs to an absolute minimum. Using Bluetooth wireless technology, it will pair with any Android, IOS, or Windows Mobile device that runs the Barcoder 250 Mobile App. This makes it an affordable alternative to the DL-Axist. Key features include image capture capability, white illumination, and the market’s most efficient aiming system. It’s capable of reading 1D and 2D bar codes, including damaged or poorly printed ones, as well as those displayed on the screens of mobile devices. It is armed with batch mode capability that enables it to store 2000 scanned linear codes. Its reading performance is outstanding, and its light weight compact size benefits from a hand-friendly design, which endows the user with all the flexibility they need when operating the device.
ANDROID MOBILE PHONE/TABLET
In some circumstances, all you really need is an Android Tablet or Android Mobile Phone device to run the Barcoder 250 Mobile App. If you genuinely don’t need specific specialist equipment, then simply run the app on an Android device that you already have. You can even get one just for this specific purpose, and with the app installed and the device’s built-in camera, you have a very inexpensive entry-level solution that can be ideal if you need to process small order volumes. Each device can seamlessly scan product barcodes and process goods in and goods out of the warehouse with complete data accuracy. If an Android device is not enough, don’t panic – the situation is easily rectified, and you know it’s time to step up to one of the other devices listed here. But if there’s truly no need to scale up, at least in the short-term, then you may find the Android device you already own is perfect for your needs right now.
DATALOGIC GRYPHON CORDLESS SCANNER AND CRADLE
If you’re working with Barcoder 250 installed on a desktop machine, the Gryphon Cordless Scanner is the ideal partner technology. Using Bluetooth makes it cable-free and the pallet-friendly Gryphon can scan as many as 325 items a second at distances up to 30 metres (98 feet), with audio feedback for good and bad scans. It transmits that data either to its base unit, or to a commercial or embedded Bluetooth 2.0 compliant device within range. That serious processing power is reinforced with batch mode capability allowing 1200 codes to be stored in memory. It runs on a lithium-ion battery that can handle 33,000 scans per charge, and continues to function while being charged, meaning no wasteful down time. There’s a general model (the GBT4130 including Wand Emulation), and an IBM-compatible one (the GBT4110 featuring RS-232 Emulation), depending on the set-up your business utilises. Both offer point-to-point and multi-point transmission.
