WLS8600 Fuzzy Logic Laser Barcode Scanner


Reads Damaged 1D Barcodes for Maximum Industrial Productivity

The Wasp WLS8600 industrial barcode scanner features fuzzy logic technology for fast, accurate reading of damaged, dirty, and poorly printed one-dimensional (1D) barcodes typically found in industrial environments. In the yard, warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing plant or retail store, the WLS8600 industrial barcode scanner offers superior performance, reliability, and user-friendly ergonomics to improve productivity. Multiple on-board interfaces ensure flexible plug-and-play host connectivity.

Advanced Data Capture Technology for Tough Environments

As innovative as it is rugged, the WLS8600 delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications. The scanner operates in a wide range of temperatures and has a water and particulate sealing rating of IP65. The WLS8600 maintains its reliability even when subjected to repeated drops on concrete. For applications requiring quick access and convenient storage, the WLS8600 features a built-in metal hook for attachment. Two, large LED-enhancing windows and an extra loud beeper are strategically placed on the scanner to ensure the decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users.

Capturing Mission-Critical Information the Smart Way

The standard WLS8600 was designed specifically for industrial applications. When you choose the WLS8600, you receive the added assurance of purchasing from Wasp.

The WLS8600 includes a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty covering material defects. If you would like to upgrade this coverage, WaspProtect extended service plans cover accidental breakage and can provide coverage beyond the original warranty.
