  BHT-600Q 2D

A tough body model with excellent read performance and reliability

  • Durable models with drop and environmental resistance performance
  • High speed decoding and twice the scanning speed
  • QVGA screen compatible with other BHT models
  • Achieves long-lasting 24-hour operation
  • Improved usability by minimizing finger movements


Durability and Environmental Resistance

High-speed scanning of 2-dimensional codes and barcodes

  • Since scalable fonts are used, text can be displayed in any size. The degree of freedom offered in screen design is expanded considerably.
  • Clear rendering of characters with high stroke counts is possible through grayscale display.

QVGA color LCD

  • With an icon display for the task menu, intuitive and easy-to-follow screen design is now possible
  • Company logos, product images and the like can also be displayed
  • Equipped with a font size configuration function to use BHT series screen displays without modification (1)

Sharing of screens with other models

  • Since it has the same QVGA screen as BHT-500 series models, the screen design can be shared
  • Application sharing is also possible with the use of a web browser


  • Equipped with a backlight keyboard for good visibility in dark places
  • Equipped with a high volume beeper and vibrating function

  • 12-mm wide key pitch to make keys easy to press even when wearing work gloves

  • Equipped with eight function keys which can be assigned task selection or functions

  • Oval-shaped, with a housing length that is easy to hold firmly
  • Light body weighing about 275g
