BHT-800 Series

BHT-800 Series

This terminal combines user-friendly comfort with powerful, fast performance. The advanced scanning system makes it ideal for inexperienced users as well as for seasoned pros. Resistance to harsher environments make it a popular choice for manufacturing and warehousing applications. It is also a reliable choice for retail settings.

Stress-Free Operation

Clear in Color

Clear in Color

The 2.6-inch QVGA color LCD screen allows the use of logos and product images to improve efficiency. Scalable fonts enhance readability and bring freedom to screen layout. A grayscale feature renders complicated characters with clarity.

Advanced Scanning (CCD) System

Advanced Scanning (CCD) System

Ensure accuracy and high-speed performance with models for reading barcodes or 2D codes. Reads codes up to 400 mm (15 inches) from label surface.

Lightweight Yet Tough

Lightweight Yet Tough

The BTH-800 weighs less than 250 grams (about 9 ounces) including battery—affording virtually effortless handling for extended periods. Resistance to dust and moisture and heat and cold make it ideal for a wide range of applications.

Three Alerts, Including Sound

Be confident of accuracy with confirmation of scans via LEDs (red, green, blue), audio speaker, and vibration. Support for .WAV files allows user-defined sounds to be played.

Drop Resistant

Tested for impact resistance in multiple drops from a height of 1.2 meters (3.9 feet)—an added assurance of unimpeded operation despite occasional mishaps.

Compatible with Other Models

You can display the same web screens on all three models—BHT-800, BHT-600, BHT-500—making model changes hassle-free.

Safe, Rapid Data Transmission

Wireless Communication via LAN or Bluetooth®

Transmits data up to 54 Mbps and conforms to advanced protocols for worry-free security.
