Product Release: CipherLab Launches Rugged 2D Scanner Ready For Any Environment

With IP54-sealed rugged design, audio/visual/tactile scan confirmation, 2D capabilities and 1.3 megapixel imaging, the CipherLab 1704 is ready for the future.

Taipei, Taiwan - December 3, 2010 - CipherLab (TWO: 6160), adds a new dimension to its leading range of rugged mobile computers and scanners with a featurepacked new 2D device. The CipherLab 1704 (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) offers 1D/2D functionality and 1.3 megapixel imaging capabilities in a single, affordable package that can cope with everything from 2D barcodes to signatures, and optionally even full A4 documents. Another standout feature of the 1704 is its innovative scan confirmation system, which includes variable volume level, LED and vibrator. CipherLab's trademark rugged design and the sheer versatility of the 1704's feature set reduce the total cost of ownership, making it a great long-term investment in employee productivity.

"We kept hearing that what our partners needed was an affordable 2D device that could do it all," explains CipherLab President Sherman Chuang. "What makes the 1704 different is that it can be used under virtually any conditions, because its confirmation system lets the user capture mission-critical data without being able to see or even hear. The 1704 also has IP54 dust/water protection and a 1.8m drop test rating, so it really is ready for anything."
