Quicker and more ergonomic identification with new hand-held bar-code scanners
Waldkirch, April 2007 SICK is presenting a new generation of hand-held bar-code scanners at the Hanover Trade Fair 2007 the new IT3800g. Its ergonomic design, and the numerous improvements in handling and reading performance, offer the best prerequisites for the continuation of the successful history of the IT3800 family of linear imagers for mobile bar-code detection in commerce, production, transport and logistics, or for processing documents.

The IT3800g exploits the latest generation of linear imager technology. It features considerably longer reading distances, greater depth of focus and a more intensive scanning line with better visibility on the barcode. Resolution has been improved to 0.075 mm; evaluation of the reading information now takes place four times quicker than in the predecessor model. These features profit from handling that is as simple and user-friendly as possible. Reliable aiming on the object, a high tolerance of movement, and immediate information on positive reading results permit particularly easy work with the device. The housing is more ergonomically shaped and lighter. A variety of interfaces, including for common electronic till systems, permits smooth connection of the hand-held scanner. In practical use, the robustness of the IT3800g is convincing: the device is still fully functional even after being dropped 50 times from a height of 1.5 m in trials and the five-year guarantee offers the ultimate long-term investment protection.
