Varlink, the York-based specialist distributor of mobile computing and associated barcode products, has announced the launch of the Opticon OPI-3201 2D imager following the success of the company's OPI range of barcode scanners.
The device is a durable, yet comfortable 2D barcode scanner, with a scan speed of up to 80 frames per second and a drop spec of 1.5 metres onto concrete. Varlink comments that the lightweight handheld design provides users with the versatility to quickly and reliably read all standard 1D & 2D barcodes from any orientation and on most media, from paper to mobile phone screens, to provide users with a perfect, low cost solution.
The OPI-3201 is claimed to be ideal for e ticketing and healthcare based environments where speed and ease of use are a necessity.
The introduction of barcoded wristbands for safe patient identification has dramatically increased the use of 2D scanning in the healthcare industry. Integrating the OPI-3201 provides accurate, timely and safer identification of patients.
Varlink reports that there is a dramatic increase in the demand for scanning 2D barcodes within the retail sector, from e-tickets and Loyalty coupons on mobile phones to Datamatrix codes being printed alongside legacy EAN barcodes for superior tracking of fresh food and produce. The OPI-3201 is capable of being used within all of these environments
The OPI-3201 is now in stock and ready to order from Varlink.
