Hand Held Products, the world's leading supplier of image-based data collection systems, has developed an exciting new onboard warehouse management solution.
The new system uses the company's state-of-the-art Dolphin(r) 9500 mobile computer combined with another of the company's versatile products, the IMAGETEAM(tm) 5620 cordless barcode scanner.
Hand Held Products claims that the new solution saves time, money and effort. It enables warehouse goods to be managed more efficiently by streamlining routine administrative procedures. Forklift truck operators can use the IT5620 to scan the pallet codes, which are then transmitted to the onboard Dolphin 9500 via Bluetooth. The Dolphin 9500 then sends the information in real time to the company server, which returns the updated information and the new operations to be performed.
Hand Held Products also offers other options that can accommodate different warehousing needs. For instance, employees on the ground can use the Dolphin 9500 to scan the pallets, and the mobile computer can transmit the information directly with the server. Another solution is to connect a Dolphin 9500 to an IMAGETEAM(tm) 5800 wired barcode scanner. The Dolphin and the scanner are connected using RS-232, and the Dolphin Mobile Base, which is fixed to the forklift truck, also charges the battery.
"Our state-of-the-art imagers and mobile computers are highly versatile devices, and can be used by themselves or in tandem to meet a host of different warehousing needs," says Roel Vreeburg, Hand Held Products' Managing Director for EMEA. "Furthermore, our solutions adapt easily to temperature variations; can work for a long time without the battery needing recharging; and are very robust. This therefore makes them ideal solutions for the demanding environment of the warehouse."
