Taipei, Taiwan - Jan 17, 2012 - CipherLab, a leading innovator in Automated Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) has announced a new addition to its data capture lineup today - the new 1600 series 2D scanner. This model aims to meet the growing adoption of 2D barcodes in pharmaceutical, hospital and retail settings.

The rechargeable Li-ion battery provides long working hours for all-day work, improving productivity. The scanner also supports a Bluetooth® working range of 20 m (66 ft.), which facilitates operations that require instant data synchronization with the back-end system.

"Since 2D barcodes are getting more and more prevalent in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, along with the fact that the mobile workforce has been growing," commented Sherman Chuang, President of CipherLab, "We built upon the success of our existing 1600 series with the advanced feature of 2D barcode-capture. Furthermore, the added functionality will extend the versatility of the 1600 series to assist more enterprises with their operations."

Housed in a pocket-size form factor, the 1600 series also comes with functional utilities and accessories, enabling workers on-the-go to work efficiently and effectively. In addition to CipherLab ScanMaster software that provides easy and fast custom configuration, the 1600 series Bluetooth® scanners are supported by CipherConnect and the 3610 transponder to integrate with smart devices and simplify the pairing process.
