Symbol Technologies Wearable Scanner Productivity at Long Range

Symbol's WS 1200-LR breaks the distance barrier in wearable scanning. Cabled to a Symbol mobile computer such as the WSS 1000, or to a PDT 3XXX portable data computer, the Symbol WS 1200-LR is worn on the back of the hand. The scanner is triggered by a low profile, thumb-activated switch that fits securely on an index finger.

Built Tough for Tough Environments

The Symbol WS 1200-LR is ruggedly built to withstand demanding industrial environments such as those found in warehouses, transportation and logistics operations, distribution centers, and manufacturing sites. The housing is rigid and durable, and well protected from abrasion by a removable/replaceable plastic cap. A jacket made of a flexible, energy-absorbent elastomer material prevents damage to the scan engine if it is dropped, or repeatedly knocked against shelving. Moreover, the unit is very effectively sealed against internal contamination from dust and moisture.

And the scanner is easy to use. Just aim it at a bar code and press the trigger. An innovative "aim spot" is used to guide the scan beam, making long range scanning quick and accurate. The scan engine in the Symbol WS 1200-LR is Symbol's field-proven SE 1200-LR, which delivers exceptional long-range scanning performance in an impressively small package. For example, the Symbol WS 1200-LR can read a 55-mil bar code from as far away as 8 feet/2.43 m and a 15-mil bar code from as close as 7 inches/17.85 cm. This outstanding scanning capability makes it ideal in industrial applications where bar codes have to be scanned from distances longer than an arm's length.

Advanced Ergonomics in a Durable Package

This wearable scanner is comfortable and practical, and is designed for right- or left-handed use. Positioned out of the way on the back of the hand, the weight of the scanner, 3.5 oz./98 gm, is evenly distributed, ensuring that it can be worn indefinitely without fatigue. The adjustable attachment glove that secures the Symbol WS 1200-LR scanner to the back of the hand fits hands of all sizes and is completely washable. Glove, straps, trigger and the scanner's rubber cap – the parts that get the most wear – are replaceable at minimal cost. Finally, for user safety, the cable linking the scanner to the trigger breaks away easily to avoid injury to the finger.

System Adapts to the Task

The Symbol WS 1200-LR is cabled to Symbol's wearable computer, the WSS 1000, or a mobile computer in the PDT 3XXX Series. Together they form a complete productivity system with today's most advanced ergonomics, robust data collection capabilities, and batch processing or wireless communications using Symbol's Spectrum24 or Spectrum One wireless technology.  The WSS 1000 weighs just 9.5 oz./266 gm for comfortable wear over extended periods and a long-lasting 1350 mAh lithium ion battery delivers power over a full shift and can be recharged in just over two hours. Users of Symbol's PDT 3000 Series of portable data terminals can retrofit the WS 1200-LR to add long-distance scanning capability and extend the life of their investment.
