LXE Inc. has introduced the 8650 Bluetooth Ring Scanner for use by mobile workers in supply-chain environments. The small, lightweight scanner rests on a finger, with the Bluetooth module worn on the back of the hand or wrist. The module pairs with any Bluetooth-enabled handheld, wearable, fixed-station, or vehicle-mount computer, and transmits data from up to 30 ft. This gives the operator freedom of movement necessary to perform barcode reading tasks.

The 8650 weighs 4.8 ounces—lighter than most cell phones. It has a tough magnesium housing and specialized electronics designed for use in harsh industrial environments. The system is sealed to IP54 standards and can withstand multiple drops to concrete from up to 4 ft. It comes in two scanning options; standard laser and 1D/2D imager, and has battery power to operate up to 24 hours, delivering up to 17,000 scans on a single charge. www.lxe.com LXE Inc.
