Metrologic Spotlights Voyager BT with Added Memory and microQuest at CeBIT

Metrologic Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS:MTLG) experts in optical image capture and processing solutions, who design, manufacture and market worldwide sophisticated imaging and bar code scanning solutions for a variety of applications today announced that it would use the CeBIT Trade Show in Hanover, Germany (10th -16th March: Hall 6, Stand B46) to launch the Voyager BT with Added Memory bar code scanner and MicroQuest scan engine. Metrologics wholly-owned subsidiary in Germany, Metrologic Instruments GmbH, will be exhibiting at the Show with its entire suite of laser and vision based bar code scanners.

Metrologics VoyagerBT wireless hand-held scanner was among the first of its kind to employ Bluetooth wireless technology. Designed for use in POS or light warehousing applications, the absence of cables is a huge advantage allowing the operator freedom of movement around the POS or warehouse, with the added bonus of unrestricted data collection and the elimination of damaged cable replacements.

VoyagerBT can communicate with its own base station or with other already-equipped Bluetooth devices such as PC's, laptops and barcode printers. Metrologic has added an Inventory Mode to Voyager BT, enabling the unit to read and store up to 2500 bar codes, making it more ideal than ever for light warehousing applications where the size of the building may bring the scanner out of range of its base station. Once the unit is back within range, the data is automatically downloaded without any input from the operator.

For original equipment manufacturers ("OEM") or customers seeking a miniature non-decoded scan engine, Metrologics single line laser bar code scanner engine, the IS4813 microQuest very nicely fits the bill. Metrologic has taken careful steps to enhance the units field capabilities resulting in improved scanning performance and reliability for the microQuest scan engine. The scanning components in the microQuest are mounted in a durable die-cast chassis to withstand the shock commonly associated with portable devices. The microQuest supports 3.3V or 5.0V input with very low power consumption such that it can be operated efficiently by 2 "AAA" batteries. Its performance and easy integration make microQuest ideal for applications such as information kiosks, lottery terminals, gas pumps, portable data terminals and consumer electronics applications.
