BHT-300Q for US 2DBHT-300Q for US 2D

Standard model with all the basic functionalities of a hand-held barcode terminal

  • Industry-leading performance enables touch and distance reading of up to 450 mm
  • Superior impact resistance and operating environment features
  • Power-saving design achieves longer operating time
  • Easy-to-operate, highly durable key pad
  • Scanners can be controlled by a PC to facilitate remote maintenance of master files, applications and operating systems


Caution: The shape of the projected area marker differs according to the original target market.This hand-held terminal with built-in area marker should not be used in the United States and Canada as it does not meet the specifications required for use there.

Outstanding Scanning Performance

Scans at twice the speed (1) of conventional scanners.

Easily scans poorly printed and damaged 2D code.

Superior Operability

A area marker clearly indicates the scanning area.

Wide Range of Scanning Features

Industry-leading impact resistance and superior operating environment features

The BHT-300Q series achieve drop resistance (concrete floor) of 30 times at 1.2 m.
Passes IEC International Standards Protection Class IP54 and reliably shuts out water and dust.

Power-saving design achieves longer operating time

A high capacity lithum ion battery and power-saving design extends continuous operating time and reduces costs. (2)

Largest screen in its class

Capable of displaying a range of fonts on the wide liquid crystal display.

The bright backlight makes the BHT-300Q easy to use, even in dark conditions.

Enhanced Features


The vibrator accurately informs the operator of scanning completion and errors, even in noisy operating environments.

Easy-to-operate, highly durable key pad

Advanced Development Pack

The BHT-300Q series is compatible with BHT-BASIC 4.0, which is now equipped with even easier to use functions.

Remote Wakeup Function

The remote wakeup function enables the BHT-300Q series to be controlled by a PC, as well as facilitating remote maintenance of master files, applications and operating systems, etc.

  1. When scanning up to 150 characters of QR Code in high-speed scanning mode.
  2. When scanning twice in 10 second and not using the wireless interface.
