ACD: Never get out of the car again: Hands-free scanning at long distances

Easily scan barcodes on goods from a distance of well over 10 metres without having to get out of the forklift truck? And save time at the same time, because there is no need to reach for the handheld scanner? With the ergonomic back of the hand scanner from ACD Elektronik GmbH, this is now a reality:

Comfortably attached to the back of the hand, hardly noticeable due to its low weight and with a scanning range of up to 14 metres, the HasciSE AR revolutionises work in the warehouse. Barcodes can be captured quickly and conveniently from the vehicle, “hands-free” and without the inconvenience of picking up and setting aside a handheld scanner. For the user, maximum scanning comfort and efficient work are guaranteed.

Small device, big performance

ACD’s HasciSE AR palm scanner is one of the pioneers in the logistics wearables segment. Its handy design, coupled with its low weight and powerful advanced range scanning engine, makes the scanning process much easier. Goods can be picked up without having to put the scanner aside, which saves valuable time in the daily work routine. Thanks to the high-quality workmanship in industrial quality, the new back-of-hand scanner also convinces with a high degree of robustness, so that costs are effectively saved and risks of failure are minimised.

Hands-free scanning from a greater distance thanks to advanced range technology

The 2D advanced-range imager integrated in the HasciSE AR, with Zebra’s powerful SE5500 scan engine, enables comfortable scanning from a distance of 5.6 centimetres up to 14 metres from the object. This also enables scans from a greater distance to the goods. The wearable HasciSE has long since proven itself in close-range applications, such as small-parts picking. With the new product, ACD Elektronik is targeting new areas of application where both a greater scanning range and hands-free operation are required. For example, when working from a forklift in a high-bay warehouse, the HasciSE AR with 2D advanced range imager proves to be extremely adept and also scores in terms of occupational safety: both hands remain free to operate other tools. Where in the past different devices had to be used, now one scanner fulfils all requirements and ensures satisfied employees.

Maximum wearing comfort: Lightweight, ergonomic and flexible wearing options.

The low weight of 49 g ensures increased wearing comfort. This makes the HasciSE AR one of the lightest and smallest wearables in its class. In addition, the HasciSE AR impresses with its versatile wearing options, which include hand straps and hand cuffs with trigger or zipper. Ergonomic and adapted to each hand, the matching accessories are available in different sizes and for right- and left-handers. The attachment of the scanner via standard push buttons and the consistent basic shape of the device offer decisive advantages: The accessories can be flexibly exchanged independently of the scanner and adapted to the needs and requirements of the wearer. In addition, the accessories are designed to be applicable to all products in the Hasci family.

Robust industrial-grade back-of-hand scanner

With a high protection class and a long battery life, the HasciSE AR ensures greater efficiency in the warehouse, in incoming and outgoing goods and in shipping, even in a harsh environment.

With the matching app ACD EasyToConnect 2.0 for Android™, Windows® and IGEL OS, the barcode scanner can be easily paired with a remote device via BT-compatible short-range radio for secure data transmission. Alternatively, the ACD HasciDataService app can be used to quickly pair with the remote device and communicate via intents.
