Metrologic's IS4200 ScanGlove® is a fully automatic wearable laser scanning device. As in many products in the Metrologic line, the IS-4200 ScanGlove incorporates patented IR activation technology, allowing for automatic, "hands-free" scanning. The ScanGlove can be programmed for either long-range or short-range activation (minimizing inadvertent scans and decreasing power consumption). Operators simply present the scanner to a bar code, and the ScanGlove reads the code automatically. With the elimination of a manual trigger, no "point and shoot" is required, making scanning easier while increasing productivity at the same time.
The ScanGlove mounts directly on the back of the operator's hand, allowing continued use of both hands to perform other tasks. The scanner is easy to use, lightweight and durable. Comfort and safety are ensured with an adjustable hand strap and breakaway cable connectors.
The IS4200 ScanGlove is available in two models: the IS4220 and the IS4210. The IS4220 has built-in decoding for applications that use an RS-232 or Light Pen Emulation communication interface, while the IS4210 interfaces directly to a decode-equipped portable data terminal, computer or other host system. Compatibilty with virtually any RS-232 or Light Pen host device is also a key feature of the ScanGlove.
The IS4200 ScanGlove is also offered in an RF version, incorporating Metrologic's Liberty RF(tm) interface. This version eliminates cable clutter, allowing freedom of movement for operators within a work space of 30 feet from the host device. The flexibility of the host device also increases with the RF version, with possibilities ranging from portable data collectors to laptop and desktop PC systems.
