Published: Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, introduced the RS60 ring scanner, a hands-free scanning solution for use in warehouses, retail, distribution and other situations requiring highly mobile scanning. This device is the second in the newly introduced wearable line from Handheld following the SP500X ScanPrinter which was released earlier this month.

“The new RS60 ring scanner is all about efficiency and mobility. It can be worn on either the right or left hand so workers can maximize productivity while keeping their hands free,” said Johan Hed, Handheld director of product management. “Rather than holding a scanning device, a ring scanner is wearable and lets warehouse workers simply point and click, leaving them free to also move products and packages.”

The efficiency of a traditional scanner and the convenience of a hands-free wearable solution

Our new wearable line is designed to fit those needs,” said Thomas Lofblad, CEO, Handheld Group. “Handheld has always been about mobile computing, and we will be expanding our wearable product line further in the future.”
