SF1 Wearable RFID Scanner

Wearable SF1 Bluetooth scanner

The wearable, durable, wireless scanner for dependable, extended operation. The SF1 is a top choice for healthcare and pharma applications as well as for manufacturing, warehousing.

Ergonomics at its Best

Wearable with Comfort

The attachment base uses moisture-absorbing material to reduce friction on the skin. It is easily washable for a clean and comfortable fit. (Scanner holder is not washable—see the included operator’s guide.)

Lightweight and Sturdy

With its tough, magnesium frame, the SF1 weighs in at a scant 80 grams (less than 3 ounces). Yet it offers excellent resistance to drop impacts of 2.5 meters (8.2 feet). Wireless design prevents the risk of disconnection and breakage.

Keeps on Going

Powered by lithium ion battery, the SF1 performs 24 hours between 2.5-hour charges.

Order Picking, Repetitive Scanning

Advanced switching technology enables contactless connection with an external trigger. For mobile operation, simply remove the scanner from the attachment.

Triple Confirmation

Get instant confirmation of successful scans via LEDs (blue, green, red), beeper, and vibrator.

In Heat and Cold

Provides reliability in temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C (-4°F to 122°F). It’s ideal for use in cold storage applications and areas that are not ambient-controlled.

Note: Test values are the result of lab investigation and are not a guarantee of performance for every application.
