A new hands-free wearable scanner from Datalogic aims to deliver efficiency, accuracy, reliability and ergonomic benefits when used in a range of settings, including logistics, manufacturing and warehouses.

The HandScanner weights 40 grams and measures 50x45x16 milimetres. It is designed to work with static, semi-static and dynamic work stations.

It features a megapixel sensor, and can capture both 1D and 2D barcodes, while using low energy Bluetooth connectivity to communicate with devices.

“Compared to ring scanners, the HandScanner is thinner and is positioned on the back of the hand, therefore it is less intrusive and less exposed to hits than a ring scanner that stays on the fingers of a worker,” says Datalogic product manager Stefano Pistis.

“This durable, practical and ergonomic design results in up to a 20 per cent reduction in scanner damage. A fully charged HandScanner battery can run up to 15 hours and 10,000 scans.”

The battery can be fully recharged in two hours.
