Works Great with Palm Zire, Cingular 8125 (WM5), and Bluetooth Laptops


A lot smaller then i thought it would be... not really a con ... just way smaller then say a typical symbol scanner

Product Specifications

If you need to collect bar coded data but don't want to be tied to your mobile or desktop computer, Socket's Cordless Hand Scanner with Bluetooth wireless technology is just what you're looking for. This innovative device combines the power of laser bar code scanning with 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 Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) 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 offers either Class 1 or Class 2 laser scanners with Fuzzy Logic, a technology that enables the reading of damaged or poorly printed bar codes. The CHS with Class 2 laser should be used for more demanding applications, such as scanning outdoors or through Mylar or glass. The Cordless Hand Scanner with Bluetooth wireless technology uses minimal power, so you can operate for hours without having to recharge batteries. The included SocketScan software 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. This version features a Class 1 laser for normal scanning applications.
