Rugged. Reliable. Really Easy-To-Use Barcode Scanners for Warehouses

The warehouse is a fast-moving and hard-floored environment. This entails a need for sturdy equipment, but the good news is that your need for ruggedness does not mean workers are forced to struggle with brick-heavy keyboard-wielding devices.  
The four Tasklet bestsellers come with different degrees of ruggedness, yet they are all comfortable to carry and handle. Large, high-resolution touchscreens with built-in pop-up keyboards make them perfect for working with data. And although being designed for handiness, they still offer quick and powerful barcode scanning. Let’s take a look...

#1: Honeywell CT60XP A Barcode Scanner Designed to Withstand Even the Toughest Warehouse Environments

First up is the Honeywell CT60XP. This device is one of the most popular barcode scanners and for good reason. It's rugged, reliable, and designed to withstand even the toughest warehouse environments.  
With an IP68 rating, it can handle drops, spills, and low temperatures with ease. Plus, it comes with a large touchscreen and a powerful battery that can last all day, even with heavy use.

Sim Card or No Sim Card? That’s the Question

One of the key questions businesses face when it comes to data registration is whether to opt for a SIM card configuration or not. While Wi-Fi can be perfectly reliable for data transactions within a particular location, it may not work outside the premises, and cellular data networks can be necessary for uninterrupted, real-time data registration. If you are in doubt about whether or not you'll need a SIM card in your choice of scanner, feel free to reach out to us.
