SYMBOL Technologies has introduced a new wearable mobile computer, and two wearable scanner systems, for high-performance computing in extreme environments.
Designed for warehouse and distribution customers who require hands-free operation, the WT4000 series of wearable mobile computers delivers increased productivity to applications including order picking, receiving, replenishment, loading, maintenance, and repair.
It’s also well suited to logistics applications including package sorting and handling.
Worn on either the wrist or the hip, Symbol’s WT4000 series mobile computers lets users move freely and scan data, access business-critical information, and accurately perform data entry in real-time.
For maximum flexibility, the WT4000 also offers headset support for voice-directed order picking.
Featuring IP54 sealing rating, and the ability to withstand 1.2 metre drops to concrete across a range of operating temperatures, the unit is built to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use in demanding environments.
With a hands-free and ergonomic design, it supports voice-only, text-only, and combination voice and text applications.
New wearable scanners
Symbol’s RS309 and RS409 wearable scanners deliver high-performance scanning and accurate reading of both poorly printed and damaged barcodes.
The RS309 delivers a wide scan range for workers picking items to fill orders in the warehouse, and also provides protection from condensation when moving between freezer and non-freezer environments.
Positioned on the back of the hand, the scanner is lightweight and can be worn comfortably for a full shift.
The RS409 ring scanner offers form and function, allowing freedom of movement and versatility in scanning, picking, and sorting applications.
It can be worn directly on the finger or over a gloved hand.
