PSC has released a dynamic new handheld scanner, the QuickScan QS6500BT, which promises, among other things, cordless freedom via Bluetooth.
The handheld model improves on previous scanner technologies by removing some of the moving parts that used to be standard issue. It reads bar code symbologies at 450 scans per second, a step up in both speed and realiability. It reads 1D bar codes and most stacked PDF 2D codes, and it can even scan bar codes while the battery, standard issue lithium ion, is charging.
The most newsworthy innovation is the Bluetooth v 1.2 wireless option, which does not sacrifice quality or usability.
“We continue to invest in our existing product lines to provide customers with the most advanced technology and design features in the market, said Nick Tabet, PSC’s Vice President of Retail Scanning. “The superior durability and reliability make this new product one of the best values in the market.”
