DENSO at the LogiMAT 2019 – Innovative handhelds and an RFID sled


As part of the Toyota Group and inventor of the QR Code, DENSO specialises in the development of innovative data collection devices. At the LogiMAT 2019, to be held at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre from 19 to 21 February, the company will present two new handhelds – the BHT-1700 and BHT-1800.

Both devices are equipped with Android 7.1.2 and, according to DENSO, are redefining size and ergonomics in the market today. Also, the SP1 RFID sled will be presented. It is claimed to be able to accelerate different work processes, such as inventories, by up to 50 percent compared with previous models.

Especially in logistics and warehouse logistics, mobile data collection devices save both time and costs. DENSO is constantly responding to the demands of the industry and has developed two handhelds, the BHT-1700 and BHT-1800, which are particularly ergonomic due to their angled scanning head.

While the BHT-1700 is equipped with a 4‘’ mega display and keyboard, the BHT-1800 with its 5’’ superscreen tests the limits. Both devices are available in six different models. “For the logistics sector, the BHT-1700 long-range gun grip terminal is very interesting,” says Kaber Kolioutsis, Marketing Communication Specialist at the DENSO Auto-ID Business Unit. “It can scan from a distance of up to ten meters. Additionally, it can be used for as much as 30 hours in a continuous operation; thus making it particularly suitable for working in warehouse logistics,” he continues.

The SP1 RFID sled also offers advantages for its users. By connecting the RFID sled to a smart device, the modern RFID technology becomes an added tool. To connect the devices to each other, a QR Code on the SP1 can simply be scanned with an existing smart phone using a 2D bar code reader app. Then both devices are linked via Bluetooth. Thus, RFID ensures both the process acceleration and a higher performance. The BHT-1700 or BHT-1800 units can also be linked via Bluetooth to the SP1.

“We are very excited about these new products and we cannot wait to present them to the visitors at the LogiMAT,” says Kolioutsis. “Our new smart data management platform ORiN will also be a very interesting topic.” With ORiN, DENSO has created a software tool that allows users to easily control all the machines and applications they use on a daily basis. The IoT data server is already on-line and in use in more than 130 DENSO factories worldwide. At the LogiMAT, ORiN will be presented in Europe for the first time.

DENSO is to be found at the LogiMAT at booths F64 and F65 in hall 4. The lecture on ORiN will take place on Tuesday, 19 February 2019, at 4 p.m. in Forum C.
