Princeton, NJ, May 24, 2010 – KoamTac, Inc. announced today the release of the KDCi range of Bluetooth barcode scanners designed specifically for use with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. At less than two cubic inches and weighing only 1.2 ounces, KoamTac’s KDCi offers enterprises the opportunity to add professional barcode scanning to their mobile workers’ handset of choice in many industries including: transportation, field service, retail and healthcare.
“Customers are becoming increasingly more in-tune with the preferences of their mobile information workers.” said Glen Hall, Vice President, Herbert Retail Ltd., a leading mobile systems integrator and authorized KoamTac partner. “The KDCi provides us the opportunity to tailor data capture solutions to the needs of today’s fastest growing segment of mobile worker: one who values the benefits of today’s sleek handsets for wireless email and voice
communication but cannot settle for ineffective barcode scanning performance associated with software apps designed for consumer novelty.”
”The KDCi range represents the embodiment of KoamTac’s years of experience with ultra mobile barcode reader design”, said Dr. Hanjin Lee, CEO and founder of KoamTac, Inc. “We focused our efforts on developing a barcode terminal that follows the latest design trends of mobile terminals like MP3 players and smartphones while adding the durability needed for professionals. The KDCi’s bright display allows iPhone and iPad to send line-of-business
application workflow and instructions to the user, enabling one-hand operation. And, given its ultra small size and light weight, many customers attach the KDC to their body using our convenient retractable belt lanyard.”
KDCi is available in two models: KDC200i integrates a laser scan engine for reading all popular linear barcodes; KDC300i utilizes industry-leading Adaptus® Imaging technology from Honeywell, enabling high-performance omnidirectional reading of linear and 2D barcodes, postal codes, and optical character recognition (OCR) codes. On a fully charged battery both models are able to scan and transfer barcodes for several days with Bluetooth connection enabled.
KoamTac’s products are the world’s smallest and lightest barcode terminals on the market supporting V2.0+EDR Class 2 Bluetooth, 1” OLED display, rechargeable battery, and 180KB of memory for storing 10,000+ barcodes in traditional batch data collection applications. Bundled KTSync® keyboard wedge and application generation software enables barcode scanning integration without modification to most line-of-business applications.
