ProGlove appoints Barcode Connexions as a Premium Partner.
The ProGlove MARK Series
The ProGlove MARK Series is bringing wearable technology to the world of barcode scanning, empowering workers and allowing them the freedom and flexibility to multitask like never before.
New ProGlove changes the game with wearable scanning technology
When the first wireless handheld scanners hit the market, they revolutionised warehouses, assembly lines and shop floors, allowing staff the freedom to scan on the move. Portable terminals followed suit, and as wireless technology improved so did the range, longevity and accuracy of barcode scanners.
Now, the ProGlove MARK series is taking that idea one step further.
Instead of being handheld, the ProGlove allows users to scan hands free. This has enormous advantages when it comes to busy production lines and bustling warehouses. Now, workers can scan 1D and 2D barcodes from up to 1.5 meters away without needing to use their hands, allowing them to continue operating machinery and vehicles unhindered.
How does it work?
Users simply wear the gloves, which are comfortable and breathable with just the right level of support. The intelligent scanner is mounted on the back of either the left or right hand, and users can activate a ‘textile trigger’ with their index finger to start a scan. The glove has options for both haptic and audio feedback to let the user know the scan has registered.
The ProGlove comes with a variety of wearable attachments which add to its value. Some users may not want to wear a full glove, so there is a ‘wrap around’ option which still allows the scanner to sit on the back of the hand without covering the fingers. There are also options to wear the scanner on a retractable belt clip or lanyard, making it truly mobile.
How does it compare?
The ProGlove MARK Series comes in 3 distinct versions – The MARK Basic, The MARK One S and the MARK 2 – and all can easily compete with some of the best scanners on the market. The MARK series offers scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes at a range of up to 1.5 meters and can manage up to 6,000 scans on a single charge. Bluetooth technology or the use of a mobile access point make data transfer seamless, and the ability to read DPM codes will be of interest to many.
The ProGlove is bringing wearable tech to the world of barcode scanning, and those that adopt it will find their workers happier and more productive for it. Gone are the days of fumbling around for a pistol scanner while trying to operate a forklift truck – scanning has evolved from handheld, to hands free.
