Denso Wave Incorporated (headquarters: Agui-cho, Chita-gun, Aichi, Japan; President: Mitsuhiko Masegi) is releasing its new Barcode Handy Terminal model, the BHT-1100 series, on January 1, 2012. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the unit will be left open, and we plan to sell 30,000 units within a year, including sales both in Japan and overseas.
We anticipate that the new Barcode Handy Terminal model will be put to use in the distribution and logistics markets both in Japan and overseas. The scanning speed of the device has been improved by more than 25% compared to earlier models by using the latest scanning algorithms, and we’ve developed and included Advanced Scan Plus, which allows a scanning depth of field of 1,000 mm with 1x ITF codes. This device can contribute to business efficiency for operations that include inspection and order placement in the distribution business, as well as receiving, shipping, storage, retrieval, and picking in the logistics business. The BHT-1100 Series will be used in Japan, Europe, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia.
Scanning barcodes with Advanced Scan Plus represents further evolutionary improvement over the high-speed scanning that characterized the Advanced Scan feature included in previous models, adding super-deep 1,000 mm scanning that surpasses the abilities of general laser scanners. Workers can remain standing while comfortably scanning packages on upper shelves or at the foot level, contributing to efficient operation. Furthermore, the device is designed for use in a wide variety of workplaces in Japan and overseas, incorporating a large 3.5-inch HVGA liquid crystal display that can display a large amount of information in an easy-to-read fashion, a large keyboard that can be operated while wearing gloves, and a large battery that can last for nine hours or more of regular continuous wireless operation.
The device features a 55-mm body designed for easy gripping and is constructed with a heavy-duty shell that can withstand sixty drops onto concrete from a height of 1.5 meters. It has been designed to provide long-term, reliable operation, with keycaps made of plastic that resist damage and symbol wear better than rubber keys, and compatibility with a wide operating temperature range, from -20°C to 50°C. It also features the latest in computer architecture—an 800 MHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, and 2 GB of flash memory installed, as well as compatibility with the latest IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN standard—enabling comfortable operation any customer application.
Main Features of the BHT-1100 Series
1. Excellent Scanning Functionality
Using the latest in scanning technology, Advanced Scan Plus, scanning speed has been improved, and super-deep scanning is possible. Operability is improved with to the ability to scan barcodes on packages on high shelves or at foot level while remaining standing in a comfortable posture.
2.User-Friendly with a Strong Body
In addition to being equipped with a large 3.5-inch HVGA liquid crystal display and a keyboard that is easy to use while wearing gloves, the device is designed with a 55-mm body with a slender grip shape that makes it easy to operate.
