    New Barcode Scanner Features a Screen and Push-to-Pair

    The Unitech family of Bluetooth companion barcode scanners is growing fast. Our companion scanner line is ultimately about convenience. Designed to bring barcoding capabilities to any smartphone, tablet, or computer (iOS, Android, and Windows compatible), our pocket scanners now come in four different flavors. The newest addition–the MS916–features two key upgrades.
    First is a 1-inch accuracy window, which provides visibility into the scanning process. The screen gives the user the opportunity to check and double-check every scan, reducing errors in the field. The accuracy window brings a peace of mind that surpasses the traditional “good read” beep and green light.
    Secondly, we have upgraded our Bluetooth pairing process. Instead of entering a pin code to pair with the host device, a simple press and hold syncs the MS916 to any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, or computer. Though we have recently upgraded the pairing process on our best selling MS910 and MS912m pocket scanners, only the MS916 can pair to other devices without scanning a single set-up barcode.
    The MS916 is our first scanner to launch with a new look. The new packaging includes everything you need to get started–communication cable, wall charger, lanyard, and quick start guide.

    Our newest Bluetooth companion scanner also features 2 MB of storage memory, giving the user the option to store scans directly on the scanner. There’s room for up to 20,000 linear, or 1D, barcodes, including UPC, EAN, and Code 39. Once the user is finished scanning, they can export the scan data through the USB communication cable or via Bluetooth.
    Like all Unitech products, the MS916 is designed to be a lasting investment. Compatible across a variety of platforms, the MS916 can bring barcoding to whichever data collection solution you choose. The aggressive laser scan engine is sealed against potential hazards and protected against water and dust. The occasional drop will not harm either the reinforced scan window or the 1-inch screen.
