"Within our store, the new BHT-1800 is used both on the retail floor and in the warehouse. It is an attractive unit, but at the same time easily copes with the conditions in the warehouse. Thus, all employees use one device, which they quickly get used to thanks to its intuitive operation and Android 7."

  • Bigger.
    The 5“ superscreen of the BHT-1800 is DENSO’s new dimension in touchscreen computing. Despite its large screen, the BHT-1800 handheld terminal can be operated with one hand, combining a perfect overview with simple handling.   

    More ergonomic.
    Even the scan head contributes to a perfect combination of maximum overview with comfortable operation: due to the scan head’s angled position, the user can keep a natural hand posture, while being able to look at the BHT-1800 touchscreen computer’s display.   

    The BHT-1800 touchscreen computer is equipped with side-mounted, individually configurable quick access magic keys – easily programmable in only a few steps. A virtual scan key, that can be moved to any desired screen position, provides maximum operation comfort.   

    „Driven by quality“ is not just a shallow catch phrase for us at DENSO. That is why we only select high quality material for the display. Our BHT-1800 handheld terminals are standard equipped with extra crack-resistant Asahi DragontrailTM Pro glass – one of the best in the industry.  

    Full connectivity.
    High speed data transfer for efficient processes between the BHT-1800 touchscreen computer and other devices, thanks to Wireless LAN, 4G LTE and VoLTE (depending on model), USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 4.1 DER/LE.

    Always know the way thanks to A-GPS / GLONASS. Precise route planning and goods localization are possible with the BHT-1800 handheld.

    Razor-sharp photos.
    The 8 MP rear camera with autofocus lets you document damaged deliveries or track individual production.  

    Supports Google Mobile Services.
    The BHT-1800 touchscreen computer lets you have all the Google apps, you are used to. Apps like Gmail, Google Maps or YouTube can be downloaded from Google Play – just like with your smartphone. Developing apps with the familiar Google APIs is possible as well.  

    All advantages of a smartphone.  
    The BHT-1800 touchscreen computer gives you all the advantages of a smartphone (depending on the model): making phone calls, going online, using apps, sending text messages or taking photos are no problem. The main advantage of the BHT-1800 over a smartphone? It is much more rugged and therefore ideal for the rough conditions in warehouses or at the retail.   

    Separate CPU.
    Besides a Quadcore CPU the BHT-1800 handheld terminal is additionally equipped with a special scan CPU, that ensures high speed scan processes without interruption or slowing down – even if the main processor is running at a high load. 

    Slots for Nano SIM.
    What is more flexible than one SIM card slot? Two SIM card slots! The BHT-1800 touchscreen computer has two slots – one slot each for data and telecommunications (depending on model) – guarantying maximum mobility.  

    Wet fingers, gloves or a stylus? No problem! The BHT-1800’s touchscreen can be operated under all conditions and is compatible with gloves out of nitrile, latex, cotton or PVC.  

    Long live the battery!
    Depending on the model and environmental conditions the BHT-1800 handheld’s battery has an operating time of up to 24 hours – for efficient uninterrupted working.  

    Survived umpteen fall tests.
    Maximum drop resistance is our trademark. No product gets launched bevor it has not passed the drop test – numerous times! The BHT-1800 touchscreen computer is no exception. It survives drops from heights of up to 2,5 metres with ease, thanks to a magnesium frame and the robust polycarbonate slot-in system.
