Benefits of Wearable Computers and Scanners


Benefits of Wearable Computers and Scanners

January 11, 2019

A new frontier is opening in barcode scanning technology. Unitech has pioneered wearable scanning technology, enabling users to scan and process barcodes while leaving both hands free for work. This technology has the potential to improve productivity in retail, logistics, field service and hospitality.

Top Benefits

1. Improved efficiency

Having wearable scanning technology saves employee time in stock-tacking and other scanning activities.

2. Increased versatility

Standard scanners and terminals keep one or more hands occupied. With wearable technology, the user still has both hands free, enabling him or her to do more complex tasks while still having the scanner available.

3. Enhanced safety

Workers have both hands free, making accidents less likely.

Introducing the Unitech EA500/EA502 Series: The Ideal Solution for Couriers & Delivery Drivers

Introducing the Unitech EA500/EA502 Series: The Ideal Solution for Couriers & Delivery Drivers

January 3, 2019

Delivery drivers have a demanding job. They need to work quickly and efficiently with a device that is fast and responsive. They need a device that won’t run out of battery or break if dropped or exposed to water. They need a device that can use the latest apps and has integrated scanning capability to maximize their workflow. They need a device that works as hard as they do.

Introducing the Unitech EA500/502 series, the ideal solution for couriers and delivery drivers.

Powerful Processor

Speed is everything in the logistics industry and the EA 500 and 502 are lightning fast. They boast a 1.4 GHz Quad-Core processor with the option to upgrade to an Octa-Core 1.4 GHz, enabling a user to run multiple tasks without slowing down. They pack an impressive 2GB of RAM, which provides the processing power to minimize lag in the working environment, so delivery drivers can get on with the work that really matters.

All-Day Battery Life

There are few things worse for a delivery driver than having a device run out of battery halfway through the day. You don’t have to worry about that with the EA 500/502. Their 3800mAh Li-ION battery lasts 10-12 hours non-stop. In addition to this, vehicle mounts are available for vehicle charging.

Rugged and Durable

Unloading deliveries in working environments can be rugged work and accidents happen. Delivery drivers need a device that can handle the hazards of working environments. The EA 500 and 502 can withstand whatever is needed. Both have been tested to withstand multiple 5-foot drops to concrete. The units are also IP67 rated against dust and water, meaning they’ve been submerged in water as deep as 1 meter for half an hour and kept working.


Modern Operating System

Mobile computers often run on older operating systems, making it difficult to use the latest apps or find custom software. Not so with the EA500 and 502, which run Android 7 Nougat, giving you the flexibility to use your device to its maximum capacity.

Integrated Scanning

Delivery drivers need to scan dozens of barcodes a day to provide proof of delivery. They need a device with powerful and seamless scanning. The EA 500 uses the built-in Scan Cam to capture barcodes and the EA 502 has a powerful built-in scanner which can capture all standard 1D and 2D barcodes. To maximize efficiency, a pistol grip accessory is available, to make scanning even smoother and more seamless.

Additional Benefits

The EA 500/2 provide the key features delivery drivers need. In addition to everything mentioned, key features include:

  • 16 GB ROM
  • MicroSD slot / TF expansion (up to 32GB storage capacity)
  • HF/NFC RFID reader/Writer
  • GPS
  • High Res 8.0 MP camera (13.0 MP in the EA 502)

Launching the DENSO SP1 Series


Launching the New DENSO SP1 Series RFID Sled

December 18, 2018

The way we buy is changing rapidly. With e-commerce growing daily, retailers need to modernize their processes to maximize efficiency and stay competitive. Enter Radio Frequency Identification scanning.

A study from the University of Leicester found that using RFID led to a boost in sales for retailers of 1.5-5.5% and increased inventory accuracy by 20 to 30%. Retailers need scanning technology that can keep up with the times.

World-Leading Scanning Performance

Introducing the DENSO SP1 Series RFID sled. Connect an iOS or Android device by scanning a QR code and you’re ready to take your stock control to the next level.

The SP1 provides world-leading scanning performance of 700 tags a second and an 8-meter scanning distance. It reads 1D and 2D barcodes with ease. Cut stocktaking time by up to 50% compared to previous models.

Built-in Memory

The memory function sets the SP1 apart from other RFID sleds. If the pairing with the host device is broken, the scanned data is saved locally in the SP1.

Ordinary devices do not store data. If the Bluetooth connection is lost during use, the scanned data may get lost. The SP1 stores up to 80,000 tags and 1,000 barcodes in its built-in memory so the unsent data can easily retransmit. – Viv Bradshaw, Technology Consultant at DENSO

Accidents do happen and it’s important to have equipment that can handle the stresses of the workplace. The SP1 RFID sled can survive up to 30 falls of 1.2 meters and is IP54 certified against water and dust.

Comfortable Long-Term Working

When working long hours, it’s important to have a lightweight and easy to use device so employees can work at their best. The SP1 series is lightweight at 400 grams and ergonomically designed for comfort, maximizing efficiency even near the end of a shift.

The combination of outstanding reading performance and the most suitable RFID tag for the environment ensures maximised efficiency. And thus, we are very excited to present our new SP1 RFID sled to our customers and potential new clients. – Viv Bradshaw

The DENSO SP1 RFID sled can take your business to the next level. Contact us for a Product Demo.
