Wireless Barcode Scanner Offers Low-Cost Alternative to Bluetooth
3 March 2014 - Hebron, Ky. BlueStar, a leading global distributor of ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, Digital Signage, and Security technology solutions, has added Unitech's MS840P and MS842P barcode scanners to its already powerful lineup. Designed to give users an alternative to Bluetooth devices, the handheld wireless scanners use proven radio-frequency (RF) technology, like that found in a wireless keyboard or computer mouse.
Easy to set up and use, the scanners read and transmit electronic barcode using a USB dongle at distances up to 33 feet. They're designed to improve productivity at the point of customer contact in retail, at the bedside in healthcare, and in mobile ticketing applications. Unitech America's President, Scott Chung, had this to say when asked about the scanners' surprising affordability: "Our RF scanners may cost less than other wireless scanners out there, but there is no need to sacrifice performance for price when choosing Unitech RF technology."
Like Bluetooth devices, the Unitech wireless scanners operate at 2.4 GHz. The MS840P offers fast, accurate reading of standard 1D barcodes, while the MS842P also reads 2D codes and codes from LCD screens. The RF system provides a security edge over Bluetooth, and both scanners are built to withstand rugged use. A 'Buffer Mode' also stores data during out-of-range scanning, preventing data loss and improving productivity.
Joe Easton, Business Development Manager for BlueStar, makes a dollars-and-cents case for the Unitech scanners, saying, "The MS840P and MS842P are not only effective, they're economical and they're durable. That means you're getting a great return on your investment."
