Whether you are pulling out your sweaters for the colder temperature, raking leaves, or preparing for the holidays, fall is a very busy season.
But is your business ready for fall? Here are some things you may want to consider.
Bar code scanning technologies continue to evolve. Recently Honeywell, a leader in bar code scanning technologies, launched the Voyager 1202g-bf, a wireless scanner that doesn’t require a battery.
Instead of a lithium-ion battery, the Voyager 1202g-bf is powered by supercapacitors (i.e. ultracapacitors); a power source commonly used in industrial products. Supercapacitors are an energy storage technology, but until now, were not a viable option for bar code scanners or other handheld products because they were too big. Honeywell has adapted the technology and the result is a scanner that has widespread application in business.
The Voyager 1202g-bf can be fully charged in 35 seconds or less which:
The scanning performance of the Voyager 1202b-bf matches that of a battery powered scanner in speed and responsiveness in decoding less than optimum bar codes. The scanner has a performance range of up to 33 feet from the base.
Using a supercapacitor as the source of power eliminates the need to adhere to guidelines for recycling and/or disposal of used batteries making them an environmentally superior alternative to batteries.
