Product Release: CipherLab Safeguards Products with New Antimicrobial Protection Series

Antimicrobial Protection Series Treated with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology and Disinfectant-Friendly Housing to Inhibit the Growth of Odor and Stain Caused by Bacteria, While Delivering High Work Efficiency

Taipei, Taiwan - February 22, 2011 - CipherLab, a leading innovator in Automated Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) for the retail, warehouse, and distribution industries, announces today the launch of its Antimicrobial Protection Series. CipherLab, in cooperation with Microban®, the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, has developed a series of mobile computer and scanners with Microban® antimicrobial technology.

CipherLab's Antimicrobial Protection Series has the Microban® antimicrobial technology built into the product itself. The antimicrobial protection effect will not wear off during its lifetime and can inhibit the growth of odor-and-stain-causing bacteria, which is unlike other AIDC antimicrobial-claimed devices often just coated with a protective film. These new products also come with a disinfectant-friendly housing to the new product series to protect the devices from periodic alcohol cleaning - a common practice in healthcare institutions. The ability to withstand repeated alcohol wipes prevents the discoloration and corrosion of the device, as well as occasional hardware malfunction.

"Cleanliness is absolutely crucial in any healthcare setting. CipherLab's new Antimicrobial Protection Series is thoroughly protected by Microban®'s antimicrobial treatment," explains Sherman Chuang, President of CipherLab. "It's designed with healthcare environments in mind, to provide users with extra antimicrobial protection, as they handle day-to-day tasks with AIDC devices."

The Antimicrobial Protection Series comes featuring the 8001H mobile computer (buy here from Legacy Technology Services), the 1500H corded scanner (buy here from Legacy) and 1661H Bluetooth scanner (buy here from Legacy). The pocket-sized 8001H offers 100 hours of continuous operation in batch mode on a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. Its phone-style keypad and easy-to-learn interface reduces staff training period - maximizing the work efficiency and productivity of every worker. The ergonomic, snappy 1500H gives you comfort scanning throughout the day. Capable of delivering 200 times per second decode rate and reading 1D barcodes up to 3mil, the 1500H is ideal for any scan-intensive applications. The extreme lightweight and pocket-sized 1661H Bluetooth scanner brings the highest flexibility to the workers for real-time data transmission. Its 512K on board memory and long working hours let the users get more done, in more places without any interruption.
