BHT-S40 Handy Sized Mobile Computer

BHT-S40 Handy Sized Mobile Computer

A mobile computer tailor-made for your hands.

With the BHT-S40, mobile data collection is even easier than ever: The shape, size and weight ensure a maximum of user-friendliness. The built-in DENSO Scan Engine leads to an excellent scanning performance - whether in terms of speed, accuracy or performance - and makes the data acquisition process child's play.

  • User-friendly design.
    When developing the BHT-S40, DENSO WAVE heavily focused on one aspect: the user! Quite a few applications in which mobile computers are used are tedious, such as inventories. The speed factor is often an additional factor: for a smooth process, every scanning must be perfect without interruptions and be quick to perform. A good scan engine is therefore essential. But even the best scanning performance in the world is of no use if the device itself is heavy in the hand, is impractical and the user even has to perform acrobatic tricks with their hands to initiate the scanning process.

    The BHT-S40 handheld terminals take all these aspects into account. At just about 260g, the BHT-S40 has a light weight and thus enables long and fatigue-free work. Thanks to the ergonomic shape of the handle, the device fits perfectly in the hand. The release buttons for triggering a scan are also positioned on the handheld terminal in such a way that the user can easily operate them with a natural movement and without twisting.

    The BHT-S40 thus becomes a natural extension of the hand.

    Scanning performance at the highest level.
    The mobile computers of the BHT-S40 series are equipped with a DENSO original scan engine, which easily scans even the most difficult codes. Whether poorly printed, crinkled or smeared over. Even reflective surfaces are no longer a problem thanks to a 40 ° scan angle.

    High reading speed.
    In a fast-paced world where time equals money, the rapid collection and availability of data is essential: be it in warehouse and delivery management or in retail. It is therefore important to ensure high performance and a high reading speed of mobile computers.
    The BHT-S40 devices shine in this category thanks to the powerful scan engine that reads codes 30 times a second. This strength is particularly evident in warehouse management: the high speed at which a code is correctly recorded allows the user to scan several codes in one fluid movement one after the other (trace scanning) instead of using the usual stop-and-go method.

    DENSO operating system.
    The BHT-S40 devices are equipped with an operating system specifically developed for data acquisition processes: the DENSO-OS. In contrast to third-party operating systems or open systems, the DENSO-OS is specially tailored to data acquisition applications. This creates maximum reliability and smooth operation.

    Another advantage: users receive support for both hardware and software directly from a single source - DENSO!

    Also accessible to users with red-green weaknesses.
    The colour scheme of the LEDs and function keys is designed so that even users with red-green weakness can easily distinguish the individual keys.
