1600 Pocket-sized Scanner
Simple. Powerful. Portable. Smaller and lighter than a mobile phone, the 1600 series can be easily fit in your pocket and carried around for required tasks wherever it takes. The 1600 series is built to meet the needs in healthcare, field sales and field service with strong mobility requirement. Optional Bluetooth® connectivity allows instant data acquisition to a Bluetooth® compatible PDA, laptop, PC or any other Bluetooth®-enabled devices. With a choice of linear imager, laser or 2D imager, your business needs will be met in a wide range of applications.
Maximum Mobility in Pocket-size The 1600 series liberates and mobilizes healthcare and field workers with its ultra-portable, light-weight form factor combined with optional Bluetooth ® connectivity. The pocket-sized device is easy to carry, allowing workers to roam freely about their workspaces. Furthermore, mobile salespeople or field service technicians could combine the 1600 series with a PDA or Smartphone to collect and transmit data via WWAN, ensuring the back-end system is always up-to-date.
Versatile Symbology Support With optional linear imager, laser and 2D imager the 1600 series ensures hospitals, pharmacies, clinics and laboratories are ready to meet the growing adoption of 2D barcodes on the product packaging. CipherLab 1600 series is also ideal for scanning patient identification bracelets and medication labels. It frees healthcare professionals from paperwork, allowing them to provide higher-quality care to patients.
Smart Solution with Immediate Payoffs Simplifying and streamlining with CipherLab 1600 series scanners Hong Kong’s historic Tung Wah Hospital adopts CipherLab 1600 series scanners to more efficiently deal with fixed assets.
After expanding to nearly 700 beds, it was clear to Tung Wah Hospital administration that they needed an efficient way to inventory fixed assets. With the decision to deploy CipherLab 1600 series Bluetooth® scanners paired with laptops and PCs, the hospital has seen an enormous reduction in labor and cost associated with asset management.
Optimum Storage Capacity and Reliable Data Transmission The 1600 series can hold over 10,000* scans when used as a memory scanner, allowing workers to complete the maximum number of tasks without interruption. Besides, the scanners also have buffer memory ensuring that no data is lost if a worker is out of Bluetooth ® working range. Once the worker steps back in range, information is automatically uploaded to the back-end system preventing data loss at essential moments. *The calculation is based on EAN13 barcode
Long Lasting Performance, Optimal Productivity The 1600 series allows employees optimal productivity by providing long working hours for all-day data collection on either replaceable AAA batteries, or rechargeable Li-ion batteries. For a hospital, especially in its peak hours, the scanners can work across nurses’ shifts to ensure no time is wasted on frequent recharging. While the efficiency of daily routines is improved, more human resource will be released to serve more patients.
Instant Pairing via Bluetooth® Paired with the CipherLab 3610 Bluetooth® transponder, the 1600 series allows real-time data transmission to any computer with a USB port – no setup required. With a Bluetooth® working range of at least 10 meters, caregivers, for example, can scan patients’ wristbands without pushing around a medical cart. Once the wristband is scanned, the patient information will be shown on the tablet screen on the medical cart, allowing for appropriate and timely medical care.
Higher Flexibility with Extensive Software Support ScanMaster – Custom Configure Scanners at No Additional Cost
CipherConnect – Work Smarter Utilizing PDAs and Smartphones
The ScanMaster software offers a comprehensive solution to configure scanners, edit format and symbol types, and much more. It’s easy to use and set up through the standard Windows® interface. All generated settings can be saved and printed out as barcodes to share with other users, so other users can scan to configure their scanners.
CipherConnect is a COM-to-key software utility designed for CipherLab cordless scanners to work as an input device for smart devices – enabling intensive data collection via Bluetooth® Serial Port Connection. Now it is available for Android, Blackberry, and Windows® Mobile via Bluetooth® SPP (Slave).* *Apple’s iPhone, and iPod Touch (2nd Generation) support Bluetooth ® HID profiles when running iOS 4 and above, where CipherConnect isn’t needed to pair with CipherLab cordless scanners.
