Intermec SF61B Rugged Mobility Bar Code Scanner Features

SF61B Rugged Mobility Bar Code Scanner Features

  • Compact form factor and innovative quick disconnect system enable rapid, on-demand scanning
  • Includes the industry’s fastest 2D imaging technology for snappy, omni-directional scanning
  • Bluetooth wireless easily pairs with iOS®, Android® and Windows Mobile® devices
  • Tested to withstand 26 drops to concrete from 2 m (6.5 ft) and rated IP65 for protection from liquid and dust ingress
  • Capable of over 20,000 scans on a single battery charge

Rugged, Performance Scanning for the Mobile Worker

Designed to provide the highly mobile worker with performance scanning in an extremely compact and rugged package, the SF61B easily integrates with existing data capture workflows and--with integrated Bluetooth wireless--easily pairs with iOS, Android and Windows Mobile smartphones and tablets. With its unique form factor and magnetic quick-disconnect system, workers can accomplish their data collection tasks with more efficiency, safety and agility than ever before.

A Tool for the Agile Workforce

Traditional gun-shaped scanners weren’t designed for the worker on the go. To address this, we designed the SF61B so that it can be quickly accessed or securely stowed away as needed. A magnetic quick-disconnect system and variety of smart accessories, like wrist straps and belt loops, make it easy to rapidly access the device when needed—and just as quick to securely stow away when unencumbered use of both hands is needed.

Full-Size Scanning Performance

Despite its compact size, the SF61B packs the same high performance 2D imagers as our full-size handheld scanners. With unmatched motion tolerance (up to 500 in/sec) and omni-directional reading capability, the SF61B keeps up with your workers on the go by delivering incredible scan speed at any angle. The addition of VESTA, our patented scanning algorithm, increases read range when scanning the most common 1D codes. Advanced imaging capabilities—such as data parsing, multi-code reading, and image/video capture—are built-in and make SF61B an even more flexible data capture tool.

Built for Mobility

The robust scanning performance of SF61B is complemented with equally impressive communication and battery performance. An integrated Bluetooth Class 1 radio enables wireless communication at ranges up to 100 m (325 ft), and the field-replaceable battery endures over 20,000 scans on a single charge. The SF61B offers performance characteristics commonly found in full-size scanners, at just a fraction of their size and weight.

Ultra-Compact, Ultra-Rugged

Don’t mistake the SF61B’s small size for fragility. It carries an impressive IP65 rating against liquid and solid particle ingress, making it completely dust-tight and capable of withstanding direct water spray-downs. Like our SR61 ultra-rugged handheld scanner, the SF61B can survive 26 drops to concrete from a distance of 2 m (6.5 ft) over a wide operating temperature range. This ruggedness, combined with a standard three-year warranty, results in decreased total operating costs over the life of the device.
