DENSO, a leading global supplier of advanced technology, systems and components, has announced the release of two new scanners with RFID and NFC technology onto the market.
BHT-1200 RFID handheld terminal is described as being perfect for longer distances while QK30-IC offers comfortable scanning on short distances. Both scanners are said to combine efficiency, comfort and easy handling.
Both products are based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) or NFC (Near Frequency Communication) respectively. Their outstanding features are operability, robustness and durability, according to Denso.
Sina Haupt, marketing assistant, Denso, said: “The launch of new products is always very exciting. Of course we are totally convinced by our devices and know what they have to offer. However, we anticipate the feedback of our clients and the industry in general with excitement as always.”
The BHT-1200 RFID offers the popular features of the BHT-1200 series such as the robustness and the resistance to extreme temperatures from -20 to +50 degrees Celsius. In addition, it provides a fast reading speed. Using RFID technology, it is possible to read codes from up to five metres away, which is why it is especially useful for use in retail and logistics. Many items that had to be scanned individually, for example during an inventory or consignment deliveries, can now be registered with just one scan.
Thus, a storage location needs only to be scanned once in order to check the number, size and colour of numerous articles, which saves a lot of time: In comparison to scanning common 1D and 2D barcodes, the working hours can be reduced by up to 90 per cent. A further clear benefit of the BHT-1200 RFID handheld terminal is the long battery life, with a capacity of up to 60 hours. Therefore, employees do not have to worry about the device running out of power in the middle of a shift.
The QK30-IC is is equipped with modern NFC technology and unites the standard model QK30 with a chip card reader. As such, it cannot only read mobile and printed QR Codes but also IC chip cards. It can be used at various operational sites which can include point of sale systems and multimedia terminals. The scanner does not only make mobile payment via smart phone and app possible, but serves as a means of sales promotion with mobile coupons and customer IDs.
That way, the individual purchase behaviour can be measured and the appeal to potential new clients can be increased.
Dirk Gelbrich, teamleader technical Services, Denso, commented: We have worked intensely on the advancement of our scanners and developed the BHT-1200 RFID and the QK30-IC. I know that our products are of great quality and I am very happy about the launch.”
