Finding more will be difficult: the S-22 area imager from Metapace reads all common 1D and 2D barcodes very fast thanks to its proven high performance scan engine yet offers a good value for the money. At the same time it offers almost unlimited freedom of movement. Depending on the environment the wireless data transmission works up to 90 meters between the scanner and base station via Bluetooth class 2. This increases the working range flexibility and user productivity significantly. Move with the S-22 in a large area such as throughout the store and in the warehouse totally free and with almost no thought to the base station connection. Outside of its range the S-22 stores the captured barcodes until the scanner is back in range.In order to guarantee no interruptions during particularly long periods of use the power management has been adapted to the strong engine and the Bluetooth interface - a property that is often neglected in other Bluetooth scanners. The powerful battery lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts - up to 16 hours at a time much longer than a full shift. The total number of batteries needed thus falls contributing to cost reduction.In combination with the integrated transfer station which at the same time also acts as a stand also conveniently use the S-22 as a presentation scanner. That also facilitates flexible usage for the checkout counter or the reception counter in medical facilities and hotels. Simply configure it with just one scan for the appropriate application. Especially practical: you operate up to seven Bluetooth scanners simultaneously with a single transfer station.Just unpack and get started - the S-22 also follows this Metapace strategy: the complete package includes the USB interface cable power adapter a CD with all the drivers and extensive documentation and of course the cradle. The robust and stylish charging and transfer cradle is optimized in its properties with the high radius of 90 m.You will find perfectly designed features not only in its scanning and transmission but also its handling and design were worked out in great detail so that the S-22 also ergonomically leaves comparable hardware in the shade. While the outstanding optics are fully packed with innovative technology its weight is kept to a minimum with 185 grams.Its handling is optimized for all applications and changing users - even after long periods of use the user will be thrilled. However the materials used in the S-22 are not solely influenced by design specifications but rather the robust elements guarantee continuous operation even in the most demanding environments. Within the temperature range of 0° to 50° C the S-22 delivers uncompromising performance. The housing also forgives accidental droppings from a height up to 1.2 m without any reduction in scanning function. With a three-year standard warranty you are on the safe side; even the scan engine is guaranteed for one year.
