Product Release: New DENSO BHT-1200 Series 1-D and 2-D Handheld Wireless Barcode Terminals


Long Beach, CA -- 01/14/2013 -- DENSO ADC, the Americas sales arm of DENSO Wave Incorporated, inventor of the QR Code®, announced its new BHT-1200 Series (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) of 1-D and 2D handheld wireless barcode terminals. By making barcode scanning quicker and easier, the devices increase operator efficiency.


The terminals’ ergonomic design, which features a slim handle and built-in hand strap, makes them easy to hold for long periods of time. A specially arranged keypad, including 12 function keys, allows the devices to be operated with only one hand or even with just a thumb. A large, 3.5-inch HVGA color display lets the operator quickly see large amounts of information at a single glance.

DENSO’s advanced charge-coupled device (CCD) technology enables the BHT-1200 terminals to read codes at 400 scans per second, three times as fast as conventional laser scanners. The devices can read even complicated or damaged codes at high speed, permitting fast, uninterrupted scanning. In addition, they can read codes from as far away as 25 feet or more, allowing the operator to scan items on all shelves from floor to ceiling without having to change position or use a stepladder. A built-in 5.0-megapixel camera enables photos of defective or mislabeled products to be taken without the need to carry a separate camera.

The devices also feature fast, reliable wireless communication that supports the latest IEEE802.11b/g/n standards, eliminating bottlenecks due to slow data transmission. Highly reliable WPA/WPA2 network security prevents unauthorized access to data.

Like all DENSO terminals, the BHT-1200 Series models have an extremely robust construction. The devices have been tested to resist damage after being dropped onto a concrete floor 30 times from 1.5 meters (4.9 feet).

“The BHT-1200 Series terminals feature our latest advances in high-performance technology, all designed to make scanning quicker and easier,” said Fran Labun, vice president, Sales Group. “They offer our customers a way of increasing operator efficiency for even their most demanding applications.”
