Near/Far Range 2D Industrial Handheld Scanner Family Enhanced with Vesta Decoding
With the flagship Intermec SR61XR rugged handheld bar code scanner, you can eliminate the need for multiple scanning devices and benefit from a substantially reduced total cost of ownership. The SR61XR scanners are:
- Incomparable — breakthrough near-to-far area imaging technology enables hassle-free 1D and 2D scanning from near contact to over 50 feet away
- Easy to use — laser spot aimer and omni-directional scanning make targeting simple
- Future proofed — ready for the increasing use of 2D and stacked bar code symbologies
- Rugged — designed to withstand drops to concrete or steel from 6.5 feet, hot and cold temperature extremes, constant forklift vibration and windblown dust and rain
- Fast — full speed USB 2.0 wired or Bluetooth® wireless interface to quickly transfer bar code data or images to host system
The Intermec SR61XR is the first handheld scanner on the market with integrated near/far areaimaging technology, offering the unparalleled flexibility to read multiple symbologies, omni-directionally, at distances from six inches to over 50 feet. Like the rest of the venerable SR61 scanner family, these models incorporate a rugged design and optional Bluetooth® wireless communication.
The SR61XR can eliminate the need for multiple scanners, substantially reducing total cost of ownership. Scan 1D, 2D, composite and postal codes; capture images, signatures and documents; read at near and far distances; and successfully cope with damaged, poorly printed and partially obscured codes in varied lighting conditions. The addition of VESTA, Intermec’s patented scanning algorithm, increases scan range by an average of 60 percent when scanning EAN/UPC and Code 39 symbologies (compared to previous generation SR61 scanners). Along with advanced features, the SR61XR delivers incredible responsiveness and advanced imaging capabilities like data parsing, multi-code reading, and image/video capture are standard.
With omni-directional scanning, laser pointer, auto-illumination and center decoding, the SR61XR makes it easy to scan at variable distances, lighting conditions and angles—improving worker productivity and virtually eliminating the “trial and error” of scanning. Operators of fork trucks equipped with vehicle-mounted mobile computers, such as the Intermec CV series, will appreciate how the near/far scanning capability of the SR61XR allows them to remain seated while scanning stacked pallets at extended ranges.
Variable distance scanning technology means multiple purpose-built scanning devices can be consolidated into a single solution. This incredible versatility makes the SR61XR suited to inventory management, picking, shipping and receiving, cross docking, pallet tracking, and virtually all other common scanning routines in the distribution center.
For those requiring an industrial bar code scanner for hazardous environments, the SR61 is now available in a non-incendive configuration ideal for tracking barrels, drums and other combustible materials. This represents a robust solution for wedge-based scanning in hazardous or explosive environments rated Class 1; Division 2; Groups A, B, C, and D.
The SR61XR includes Intermec’s EasySet™ software setup tool for easy scanner configuration and personalization, whether that involves specific bar code symbologies, decoding poor quality or damaged codes, or utilizing image capture for proof of delivery and point of service applications. You can also quickly set security options, select beeper tones and volume, specify good read and error read responses, and make many other customizations.
