Motorola WS 1200-LR Wearable Scanner
Wearable Scanner Productivity at Long Range
Announcing a scanner that breaks the distance barrier in wearable scanning. Introducing the WS 1200-LR, Symbol’s new long-range, wearable bar code scanner.
Cabled to Symbol’s wearable computer, the WS 1200-LR is worn on the back of the hand and triggered by a low profile, thumb-activated switch that fits securely on an index finger. Because the fingers are left free, the scanner is exceptionally well suited for package-handling-intensive activities such as order picking, stock pulling, and put-away.
Built Tough for Tough Environments
The 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 switch. An innovative “aim spot” is used to guide the scan beam, making long-range scanning quick and accurate. The scan engine in the 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 WS 1200-LR can read a 55-mil bar code from as far away as 8 ft./2.4 m and a 15-mil bar code from as close as 7 in./17.8 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 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 WS 1200-LR is cabled to a Symbol wearable wrist computer. 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® wireless technology. The computers in the WSS system weigh just 11.3 oz./316 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.
Symbol systems are critical to business success in data-intensive, time-critical environments because our systems help you capture, access and manage information at the point of activity.
- Long-range scanning performance: Easily captures bar code data on labels that are out of reach.
- Innovative aim spot: Helps to position the scan beam making long-range bar code scanning fast and accurate.
- Rugged design: Stands up to tough industrial environments.
- Replaceable trigger, glove, and rubber cap: Replaceable high-wear components extend the life of your investment.
- Washable attachment glove: Each user maintains personal attachment glove for hygene.
- Ergonomic design: Back-of-the-hand scanning leaves the operator's hands free to move packages, products, or materials, improving efficiency and productivity.
- Low power consumption maximizes battery life: Maintains operators' productivity as battery provides power for a full work shift on one charge when worn with the wearable wrist computer.
