Consumer review (

Nice form factor, poor function


Wouldn't recommend this scanner unless you have a very controlled environment. If you NEED BT, I might consider another model.

This unit has a nice form factor and comes with some nice extras. The battery life was really good. BT connectivity worked very well. The included config software was very nice

Couldn't get this unit to read barcodes. I tried to use this on an inventory project and had a hard time getting it to consistently read barcodes. The scanner had to be a just the right angle, distance and in the right lighting conditions for a scan....

Nifty device


Unfortunately, this device didn't work for it's intended purpose. We will make use of it elsewhere.

Has a great range

Some BC's would not scan or would take a few seconds to scan

Product Specifications

The Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) 7E will enable you to collect bar coded data without being tied to your mobile or desktop computer! This innovative device combines a Linear CMOS technology bar code scanning and the convenience of Bluetooth wireless technology in a single compact, lightweight device that is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Bluetooth wireless technology transforms how devices connect with each other, offering you new possibilities for using your mobile computer with other devices without the hassle of cables or the awkwardness of a protruding antenna. Socket's CHS 7E features a powerful Class 1 Bluetooth radio, so you can stay connected to your laptop or desktop at the maximum possible range - even when connected to the weaker Class 2 Bluetooth radios found in many mobile devices. Bar code scanning is the most efficient way to enter data into a computer. If the data to be entered is bar coded, using a laser scanner is 50 times faster and 10, 000 times more accurate than manual data entry. The CHS 7E complies with the UCC 2005 Sunrise Date mandate. The CHS 7E with Bluetooth wireless technology uses minimal power, so you can operate for hours without having to recharge batteries. The CHS 7E includes SocketScan software which directs scanned data into any Windows, Palm or Symbian application as if it were manually typed. Plus, Socket's renowned Bluetooth technology makes it easy to establish and maintain a reliable connection between the CHS and host computer.
