DENSO Announces the GT20: A New Line of Tougher, Lighter 1-D and 2-D Hand-held Scanners

10/06/2015
Long Beach, CA

DENSO ADC, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of mobile data capture systems, has introduced a new line of high-performing hand-held scanners that are among the lightest, most rugged on the market. The GT20 Series barcode terminals offer superior accuracy and operational ease in a high-tech scanner as light as a TV remote control, yet tough enough to withstand a harsh industrial environment.

“DENSO took all the best features of our hand-held scanners, made them better and combined them in the new GT20,” said David Keller, business manager of DENSO ADC, the Americas’ sales arm of DENSO Wave Inc., inventor of the QR Code®. “This device gives customers what they want most in a scanner: more power, versatility and resilience for greater safety and efficiency.”

Available in 1D and 2D models, the GT20 is designed for precise, high-speed reading and accurately captures data even when codes are dirty or blurred. The scanner also quickly and reliably reads codes displayed on liquid crystal screens such as computers and smart devices, offers confirmation by light, sound or vibration, and has photo capability for capturing and transmitting images on the spot when more product verification is needed.

The GT20’s outstanding quality is matched by its exceptional durability. Built to withstand repeated drops, the robust scanner gets the job done, even after falling 60 times from a height of 2 meters. With an IP65 rating, the GT20 is designed for use in dusty or wet conditions and can also operate in extreme temperatures ranging from -20 to 50 C (-4 to 122 F).

All of the above comes packaged in one of the lightest barcode readers available. Weighing only 180 grams, the compact, ergonomic GT20 reduces operator fatigue, increasing productivity by allowing for longer, more comfortable use.

The 1-D model is compatible with wide linear barcodes, and 2-D units have a range of 360 degrees to read matrix codes from any angle regardless of orientation. All models incorporate advanced technology for easy data transmission to smart devices and are equipped with a sturdy locking cord connector so they remain securely attached to their power source during operation.

A five-year warranty is standard on all GT20 Series scanners, and software updates can be downloaded at no extra cost. Each model offers additional advantages, features and accessories. For additional details and product specifications, visit http://denso-adc.com/products/gt20-series.
