A godsend for field operations!

Compact, but easy to use


Each model's body is more than 15% thinner, lighter and smaller1.

Design was sought for functional beauty that also allows comfortable operation despite size constraints.

Dome-shaped keys are used, which can be operated easily by workers wearing work gloves.

Distinctive displays even in bright sunlight


A high visibility LCD, High-Bright Display, is used.

A wide viewing angle, and therefore, enhanced visibility from oblique angles is realized.

Long operation possible even when the unit is kept online


Proprietary power-saving design allowing a 28-hour2 consecutive operation, the longest in its class.

Compliant with the latest wireless security standards to prevent illegal access.

What makes workers in field operations feel like using the model?

What makes workers in distribution field operations feel like using the model?


It can be held comfortably even by women, and its aesthetics enable it to fit in anywhere with style.

What makes workers in logistics and production field operations feel like using the model?


Round-the-clock use of the model, which is compliant with IEEE802.11 b/g/n, is possible while it is operated online.

The model's robust durability ensures accurate use in tough work environments with peace of mind.

  1. Compared to DENSO WAVE's BHT-800Q when a thin battery is mounted in respective 2D code models.
  2. When ratios of reading, wireless communication, rewriting of screen, and holding durations are 1:1:1:20 in continuous wireless operation; when a standard battery is mounted in 2D code models.

Equipment that can be managed with peace of mind!

Solid and robust to protect both hardware and data


Built-in toughness that endures droppings from 2m height and operates in minus 20

With a microSDHC inserted, stored data can be backed up.
