BlueStar, a solutions-based distributor for Auto ID, Point-of-Sale, Mobility, and RFID products, is distributing the LXE 8650 Bluetooth Ring Scanner, a barcode scanner with hands-free mobility.
Weighing only 4.8 oz, the scanner rests on the finger with the Bluetooth module worn comfortably on the back of the hand or wrist. The Bluetooth module pairs with any Bluetooth-enabled hand-held, fixed-station, or vehicle-mount computer, and transmits critical data from up to 30 ft away. The LXE 8650 scanner is sealed to IP54 standards and can withstand multiple drops up to 4 ft. In addition, it features battery power for 24 hours of operation, with 17,000 scans on a single charge.
"Bluetooth technology has opened up the opportunity to take another step forward in providing data-capture systems that better serve the needs of mobile workers," says Richard Adams, LXE's Director of Strategy and Marketing. "The 8650 Bluetooth Ring Scanner is the smallest, lightest, most comfortable wireless scanner available today. By combining our ring scanner module with Bluetooth communications, we've created a hands-free scanning solution that's quick and easy to implement, and extremely comfortable to use."
"With the addition of the LXE Bluetooth Ring Scanner to BlueStar's wearable computer offerings, BlueStar expands its broad range of options that are tailored to individual operators," says Mark Fraker, BlueStar's VP of Marketing.
