BHT-1700 Handheld Terminal with Keyboard

    Combines a touch panel and keyboard on a new scale.

    At DENSO, progress starts by asking questions: How big can the display of a handheld terminal with keyboard really be? The answer is the new maximum from DENSO: the BHT-1700 Android handheld terminal with 4" mega display. To maximise your options, it combines two worlds. Scan using its extra large touchscreen, control appsor make phone calls. Or use the keyboard to ergonomically register or order goods.

    • More flexible – Touchscreen? Or keyboard?
      With the BHT-1700 this question becomes obsolete as it has both. Its 4“ mega touchscreen puts it at the maximum limit for a terminal with keyboard and provides the user with a perfect overview of tasks. If needed, the user can operate it also with its keyboard. The high-quality acrylic keys are big enough for easy typing. Yet the complete keyboard is slim enough for comfortable one-handed operation.  

      More ergonomic – Natural hand posture while scanning.  
      The angled scanner of the BHT-1700 handheld terminal with keyboard guarantees a natural hand posture while scanning and enables the user to look at the display at all times.   

      More professional – Top-notch scanning performance.
      The compact scan module, which is 50% smaller than predecessor models, is able to capture codes from a minimal distance of 35 mm. Thanks to the special scan algorithm by DENSO, the BHT-1700 handheld terminal with keyboard can also read codes omnidirectionally and in incredible high speed.

      Faster – Cuts to the chase thanks to magic keys.  
      Shorter scanning times with individually configurable, side-mounted, quick-access magic keys for frequent functions.  

      Tougher – Robust Display.
      The display of the BHT-1700 handheld terminal with keyboard is equipped with crack resistant Asahi DragontrailTM Pro glass – because if there is one thing with completely stand for, it is top quality made in Japan!  

      Closer to your needs – Six models to choose from.  
      What challenge can the BHT-1700 handheld terminal with keyboard help you with. The variety of models ranges from the entry-level version with all the key functions to the high-end product with the complete functional spectrum from autofocus camera to GunGrip.  

      Further – Long Range model with GunGrip.
      With the Long Range version of the BHT-1700 we developed a handheld terminal specifically designed for warehouse logistics. With a reading range of up to 10 metres, even the hardest to reach codes on top shelves are accessible.  

      Higher capacity – Separate scan CPU.
      For undisrupted scanning, DENSO has equipped the BHT-1700 with an additional CPU. This way the high capacity handheld terminal with keyboard is able to perform its main task, even if the main processor is running at a high load – the reliable capturing of data!  

      More communicative – Full connectivity.  
      Wireless LAN, 4G LTE and VoLTE (depending on model), USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 4.1 DER/LE guarantee fast data transfer between the BHT-1700 handheld terminal and other devices for efficient processes.  

      More versatile – Has all advantages of a smartphone and more.  
      The BHT-1700 handheld terminal has all the features, that you are used to having with your smartphone. Making phone calls, going online or taking photos is possible. Thanks to Google Mobile Services the user can also download apps via Google Play. If needed, access can also be limited to only work relevant apps via app block.   

      More rugged – survived umpteen fall tests.
      In the bustle of a usual work day, devices can fall or bump against a shelf. Ordinary smartphones are not suited for such harsh conditions – unlike our auto-ID devices. Such as the BHT-1700 handheld terminal with keyboard, which survives drops from heights of up to 2,5 metres with no problem.
