Datalogic Launch Handscanner

Datalogic have launched the HandScanner, a compact, wearable scanner that fits comfortably on the back of the hand and can be paired with their range of PDA style mobile computers. HandScanner allows workers to be faster, more efficient and improve the quality of their work, with users able to easily pick up, carry and interact with objects whilst wearing the wearable HandScanner, avoiding the need to repeatedly put down and pick up the scanner, improving productivity, leading to better scanning accuracy and a drastic error reduction.



The HandScanner has outstanding performance capabilities and is able to scan 1D/2D barcodes, whether horizontal, vertical or flipped, scanning from a wide range of angles instead of pointing at bar codes head on. With its lightness and small footprint, users will find that the HandScanner enables ergonomic work and facilitates their daily operations with their natural working motion.


The HandScanner is available in two versions: Standard and Mid-range, and able to cover scan ranges from 10cm to 1.5m, satisfying many verticals in different industries. Combining the HandScanner with Datalogic’s mobile computers provides workers with a full data collection solution suitable for any kind of application.

To trial one of the Datalogic Handscanners or see how this could be part of a solution for your business, contact us on 01200 441977 to arrange a demonstration.
