|Global automatic data capture and process automation leader Datalogic is introducing its new HandScanner, a non-intrusive, hands-free wearable scanner that enhances efficiency and accuracy.
The new scanner’s low weight allows it to reduce the load lifted by a worker during every working shift by up to 1.5t. Capable of scanning from 10cm to 150cm, HandScanner is suitable for a broad range of tasks in transport, logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, retail, and healthcare industries.

Weighing just 40g and measuring 50 x 45 x 16mm, the new HandScanner is the lightest and most compact hands-free scanner available to improve workplace efficiency. It saves four seconds per scan, with 33% less errors.
The new HandScanner complements Datalogic’s comprehensive range of advanced industrial scanning equipment designed to deliver efficiency, accuracy, reliability and ergonomic benefits to demanding industries.
“Compared to ring scanners, the HandScanner is thinner and is positioned on the back of the hand, therefore it is less intrusive and less exposed to hits than a ring scanner that stays on the fingers of a worker,” says Mr Stefano Pistis, Product Manager, Datalogic.
“This durable, practical and ergonomic design results in up to a 20 per cent reduction in scanner damage,” adds Mr Pistis. “A fully charged HandScanner battery can last almost two working shifts, running up to 15 hours and 10,000 scans. With a 2-slot charging station the battery can be fully recharged in 2 hours,” he said.
