Scanning Tough

March 2017

The Zebra DS3600 Ultra-Rugged scanners are fast becoming the benchmark in industrial-standard barcode scanning solutions. They’re extremely tough, user friendly and capable (they scan both 1D and 2D barcodes). At Barcode Dynamics, we stock the hugely-popular Zebra DS3608-HD (corded) and DS3678-HD (cordless) models.

The DS3608-HD and DS3678-HD models are dust-tight, spray-proof, water resistant (IP67 standard), impervious to cold, and relatively drop-proof (they can survive a 2.4-metre fall onto concrete). They also feature remote programming / diagnostics, and a scanning range of up to 21.4 metres. The imager in the DS3608-HD and DS3678-HD models is capable of reading 1D and 2D barcodes (even imperfect ones) in a variety of sizes and densities. In addition, the DS3678-HD cordless scanner emits a Bluetooth signal which doesn’t interfere with existing Wi-Fi networks.

The DS3608-HD and DS3678-HD scanners are ideal for “critical” operating environments, such as factories, warehouses, cold storage facilities, hospitals and large retail environments. They’re designed to perform under pressure, mitigate risk and improve productivity. The Total Cost of Ownership is outstanding. Like most serious rugged devices, the DS3608-HD and DS3678-HD scanners are built to a standard rather than a price point.

Wonders of Wireless

February 2017

As part of its ongoing commitment to Wi-Fi and WLAN technology, Barcode Dynamics is proud to partner with Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) company. Aruba, which was acquired by HPE in 2015, is a world-leader in wireless network technology.

Wi-Fi is commonly used in physical settings requiring both network connectivity and user mobility – such as warehouses, factories, hospitals, motels and educational facilities. Wi-Fi provides many unique advantages over a traditional “cabled” network, including mobility, convenience, simpler deployment and enhanced productivity – particularly for workers on the move.

At Barcode Dynamics, we can vouch for the performance and cost-effectiveness of the Aruba “Instant” range of Wi-Fi products and services. The Aruba Instant solution utilises the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard - providing theoretical speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps - and doesn’t require additional controller hardware. In the absence of controller hardware, authentication and configuration is performed by the access points (APs) themselves.

The Aruba Instant access points (APs), which are usually wall-mounted, can be deployed indoors or outdoors. Network redundancy is provided in the form of dual Ethernet and 3G/4G USB modem ports (located on the access points themselves). A very popular access point (AP) model is the Instant 314/315 Wave 2, which is ideal for high-density client environments.

Why Mobile Printing Matters

January 2017
In today’s fast-paced business environment, the ability to print on the move is critical. Whether you’re generating quotes and invoices on the road, or creating delivery dockets in the warehouse, mobile printing has too many benefits to ignore.

Today’s mobile printers are highly-sophisticated pieces of technology - designed to integrate seamlessly with tablets, handheld computers and smartphones via wireless technologies like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Certified Wireless USB. They come in a range of styles and sizes, can be vehicle-mounted, and are capable of producing high-resolution documents.

Mobile printing provides organisations with the following key benefits:-
  • Shorten the sales cycle - a sales representative (or road warrior) can be empowered to quote and close a deal on the spot. Quotes, invoices, receipts and contracts can be printed with ease on the road.
  • Save space – mobile printers are typically smaller than desk or office printers.
  • Reduce IT infrastructure – in a warehouse setting, mobile printers (versus traditional printers) don’t typically require the same level of cabling infrastructure.
  • Mobility – mobile printers can generally go anywhere, provided they have “line-of-sight” with the mobile device sending the print request.
Your choice of mobile printer will depend primarily on the application and the frequency of use. Barcode Dynamics offers a wide range of mobile printers from the world’s leading brands, including Zebra, Honeywell, Datamax and Intermec.
