The first-of-its-kind housing offers maximum protection against the spread of infection. Flexible user-selectable feedback modes are designed for around-the-clock use, ensuring workers receive feedback in the quiet of the night without disturbing patients — or during the noisiest day shift. And a built-in lamp eliminates the need to turn on room lights in the middle of the night.

Visionary visibility into scanning and battery performance metrics and our comprehensive complimentary toolkit deliver unrivalled manageability and unrivalled uptime. The ability to monitor decode speeds helps spot and correct barcode issues before they impact productivity and the quality of care. And since the PowerPrecision+ battery and PowerCap capacitor can report their model and serial numbers, you’ll always know which power source is in each scanner.
