Both devices have been developed for daily use in offices, warehouses, logistics, or even in simple industrial areas. Externally identical, the two devices differ in their applications.
For differing tasks:
The IT 4620 has a 2-D image acquisition module and can thus detect both bar codes and 2-D codes omnidirectionally.
The reading range is between 3.6 cm and 31.5 cm depending on the code, its size and module width.
The IT 5620, on the other hand, operates with linear imaging technology and achieves reading distances of up to 1.1 m.
IT 5620’s intelligent algorithms also provide good reading results even with poor-quality bar codes.
Both devices offer high scanning speeds and are thus superior to conventional laser scanners.
Bluetooth and batch function:
Both hand-held scanners are equipped with new version 1.2 Bluetooth data radio module to transmit the identified bar-code data.
Its integrated frequency-hopping process ensures maximum data transmission security.
The IT 2020 basis station can simultaneously communicate with up to seven hand-held scanners.
If the IT 4620 or IT 5620 is in a silent zone, or outside the basis station’s radio range of about 10 m, the devices automatically switch to so-called batch function.
As the scanner can temporarily store up to 500 data sets (e.g. commissioning steps) the user can thus also continue to work during temporarily lost radio contact without interruption and lost time.
When the scanner is again detected by the Bluetooth radio field the collected data sets are automatically transmitted to the basis station according to the first-in/first-out principle.
Handling of the new Bluetooth hand-held scanner is characterised by a high level of ergonomy.
Thus the devices automatically switch to Presentation Mode when they detect a bar code or 2-D code in the read window.
The basis station is a combined radio and loading station. It can also be used as a stand mounting for temporary stationary use.
The contacts point upwards to protect them from damage; LEDs show the current state of the battery and read results.
The combination of ergonomy, robustness, reading power and modern radio technology make the IT 4620 and IT 5620 the ideal data acquisition solution in offices, production, warehouses and logistics.
