Long Beach, Calif.July 31, 2012DENSO ADC (of DENSO Wave Inc.) launched the BHT-1100 series of handheld wireless barcode terminals, which make barcode scanning quicker and easier to increase operator efficiency.

DENSO’s Advanced Scan Plus CCD technology can read barcodes three times faster than a laser scanner and from up to 25 feet or more away, allowing the operator to quickly and continuously scan stock shelves from floor to ceiling without having to use a step ladder. In addition, the BHT-1100 terminals have an expanded scan pattern for accurate scanning of even smeared barcodes or those that have become partially obscured by dirt.

The terminals’ ergonomic design features a large, easy-to-read screen and a slim, easy-to-hold grip, to reduce operator fatigue. A specially designed scan angle, based on studies of units in actual operation, minimizes screen glare and provides high readability under varying lighting conditions, helping prevent eyestrain.

“Our new BHT-1100 handheld wireless barcode terminals offer a wealth of advanced technology that makes scanning easier and quicker,” said Fran Labun, Vice President, Sales Groups, DENSO ADC. “We are confident our customers will welcome the way these devices increase operator efficiency.”

Wide-area 802.11b/g/n wireless coverage and high-speed data transmission make communication quicker and easier even in large stores or warehouses. An optional built-in digital camera allows the operator to take photos of defective goods during inspection, eliminating the need to carry a separate camera.

The highly durable and rugged construction of the BHT-1100 series includes shock-absorbent material molded onto the terminal’s head to prevent damage due to bumping or dropping; as well as wear-resistant lettering on the keys. The devices have been tested to withstand being dropped onto concrete 60 times from a height of five feet.
