The new KDC280 Laser and CCD models ensure users have the best option available for their unique business scanning environment and use-case.
October 14, 2019, Princeton, NJ —KOAMTAC®, Inc., ., a leading manufacturer of Bluetooth companion barcode scanners, barcode and RFID Sleds, mPOS solutions, and smartphone/tablet charging solutions have expanded their Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) companions to include two new 1D scanner models.
The new models feature either laser or CCD scan engines and are ideal for those who do not need to scan 2D barcodes as they allow for more scans per charge and an increased scan range. The laser model is direct and extraordinarily accurate in most environments while a CCD model features the added ability to read from a screen.
“We understand that some users don’t need expensive 2D scanning capability and may desire other features, such as a high-density 1D barcode scanning.”
“While the KDC280C can read the majority of all 1D and 2D barcode symbologies, we understand that some users don’t need expensive 2D scanning capability and may desire other features, such as a high-density 1D barcode scanning,” says Dr. Hanjin Lee, President/CEO. “With the addition of these models, any user can find the BLE companion scanner that’s right for them.”
All KDC280 models are compact and rugged scanning solutions that are IP65-rated and can withstand a drop of up to five (5) feet. They all come with 8MB of onboard memory allowing for the storage of over 400,000 UPC product barcodes in data collection mode or over 60,000 records in database mode.
KOAMTAC recently committed to upgrading all products to BLE5.0 by 2020 and the new KDC280 models will come equipped with this technology right away. BLE5.0 is two times faster, has a range that is four times longer, and consumes less power than it’s predecessors, BLE4.1/4.2.
The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connection allows for integration with Smart glass and Smartwatches using the Tizen® operating system as well as any Android®, iOS®, or Windows® phone or tablet. The KDC280s feature a generic guest profile as well as traditional HID/SPP profiles for data transmission to a smart device. When connected using the BLE profile, users will experience less power consumption along with faster and longer data transmission while maintaining an uncompromised connection.
