  BHT-800B Series

Unparalleled scanning and comfort with a powerful, fast and user-friendly performance

  • Reliable and high-speed scanning for first-time users or expert operators
  • Secure and rapid data communications
  • Ergonomic design ensures an easy grip for any situation in the field
  • Full support of application lifecycles, from design to development, installation and operation
  • Wide field of view for scanning

Stress-free and speedy scanning for first-time or expert users

Superior scanning performance is achieved through a newly-developed scanning engine. Enables reliable and high-speed scanning even for people unaccustomed to the work.

  • A variety of information including company logos and product images can be displayed in an easy to read fashion, offering significant improvements to work efficiency.
  • The use of scalable fonts achieves a high degree of freedom in screen design.
  • The grayscale display renders complicated characters or characters with high stroke counts with clarity. (At 24-dot display, 10 characters x 13 lines can be displayed)

Enabling smooth model changes

Conventional QVGA LCD models and web screens can be displayed without alteration.

A compatibility mode that allows migration of screens with the BHT-300B is available.

Safe and rapid data communications

Supports the latest security and high-speed communications over wireless LAN

In addition to WEP keys and SSIDs, the latest WPA / WPA2 security is also supported.

Moreover, IEEE802.11b/g, which achieves transmission speeds of up to 54Mbps, is also supported.

Prevent Operational Errors

Fitted with a speaker and vibrating function

Notifies the user of finished tasks and errors through sound and vibration.

Supports WAV files, allowing user-defined sounds to be played.
