The Wasp Barcode Technologies WWS450 2D cordless handheld barcode scanner is black, comes with a charging base, and can be used to scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes. The barcode reader contains a digital imager that can scan 1D barcodes from up to 20" away at up to 100 scans per second and 2D barcodes from up to 12" away at up to 60 frames per second. Wireless capability allows the barcode reader to transmit data to a computer (sold separately) when up to 160' away from the charging base or to an Android or iOS mobile device (sold separately) when up to 30' away. Internal memory can store barcode data from up to 256 scans.
The charging base can be connected to the USB port of a computer or host system (sold separately) to transmit barcode data and recharge the barcode reader. The base can be mounted to a desktop or wall. The lithium-ion battery enables the barcode reader to be used continuously for up to 16 hours on one charge. The barcode reader weighs 6.5 oz. and measures 6.0 x 3.7 x 2.4 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) It can withstand drops of up to 4' on a concrete floor. This product is compatible with computers that run Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows XP (SP3), Windows 2000, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003 (32- or 64-bit) and have an available USB port.
Barcode scanners, also known as barcode readers, can be used to scan and decode barcodes and to transmit barcode data to a computer or another host system. Barcode readers with a single-line laser can be used to scan linear, one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. Some lasers can produce light in an omnidirectional pattern to allow scanning of barcodes from different angles. Other barcode readers contain CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors instead of a laser for accuracy and wear resistance. Barcode scanners with raster scanning, area imaging, and other scanning technologies can allow scanning of two-dimensional (2D) or Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes, among other types. Some barcode readers provide onboard flash memory to allow the storage of barcode data before transmitting it to a computer or host system through a USB cable or wireless WLAN or Bluetooth connection. Many barcode readers have a handle for handheld use and come with a stand or a charging cradle for fixed position applications, while others are designed for stationary use on a counter or another flat surface. Some portable readers are small enough to be carried in a pocket or attached to a lanyard. Barcode readers are used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale (POS) locations and in warehouses and shipping facilities.
Wasp Barcode Technologies manufactures barcode scanners, printers, labels and other data capture and tracking solutions for businesses. The company, founded in 1994, is headquartered in Plano, TX.
