Wasp Barcode Launches New Pocket Scanner

WWS150i Barcode Scanner Provides Benefits of Mobile Without Productivity Challenges

(PLANO, Texas- March 09, 2016) - Wasp Barcode Technologies, a leading provider of small business productivity solutions, today announced the launch of a new pocket scanner, designed with mobility in mind. Like previous pocket barcode scanners from Wasp Barcode, WWS150i provides on-the-go convenience without the tangle of cords, allowing users to streamline business processes, maximize efficiency and eliminate costly data entry errors.

“The WWS150i was designed with the user in mind,” explains David Bower, product marketing associate with Wasp Barcode. “By easily pairing with a mobile device, this pocket scanner makes it possible to take advantage of the benefits of mobile -- portability, convenient form factor and wireless connectivity -- while eliminating possible productivity challenges of mobile devices, like a slow-to-focus camera. With the WWS150i, you can have mobility without a mobile computer.”

With the functionality to read barcodes with Print Contrast Ratio (PCR) as low as 30 percent, the WWS150i 1D barcode scanner is ideal for office, retail point-of-sale, healthcare and other environments that demand quick and accurate barcode reads. Haptic feedback, LED and beep tone indicators provide key information to the user including power status, wireless connection and barcode detection. Additionally, all pocket scanners come with two-year manufacturer’s warranty and an optional WaspProtect extended service plan.

WWS150i features include:

  • Scan 1D barcodes up to 12 inches away
  • Internal storage of 2MB
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery reads 10,000 scans on a single charge
  • Wireless connectivity allows for up to 30 feet line of sight from a mobile device
  • IP55 rated device can withstand multiple 5 foot drops to concrete
  • Compatible with iOS (iPhone®, iPod®, iPad®), Android and Windows devices
