SF1 Wearable Scanner

SF1 Wearable Scanner

The SF1 Wearable Scanner keeps both hands clear for performing other tasks.

DENSO WAVE's SF1 Wearable Scanner is an ultra-lightweight scan unit combined with a hand attachment with integrated and cable-free trigger switch. Thanks to its innovative design, users can wear the SF1 Wearable attached to their wrists and operate it conveniently with their thumb. This keeps both hands clear for performing other tasks, which increases efficiency as well as work safety.

"The biggest advantage of our new wearable scanner, the SF1, is that users, for example in logistics, have both hands free to handle goods. This makes certain tasks such as order picking, much easier and helps increase work safety."

Kaber Kolioutsis, Marketing Communication Specialist at DENSO WAVE EUROPE
  • Completely wireless.
    The scanner and the trigger are linked to each other wirelessly thanks to a new switching technology. Pushing a button, which is integrated in the hand attachment, with your thumb triggers the SF1 Wearable Scanner.  

    Flexible design for flexible conditions – from a wearable to a handheld.
    The SF1 Wearable Scanner can also be removed from its hand attachment and be operated via a built in touch sensor, if the situation requires it. The smart wearable then becomes a classic handheld device. You will notice that the unit is barely larger than a remote control of a beamer: compact technology for flexible use.  

    Super lightweight scan unit.  
    With its tiny 80 g the SF1 Wearable Scanner is one of the most lightweight scanners in the industry. While ring scanners require one finger to carry the scanner’s complete weight, the SF1 scanner’s tiny weight is distributed comfortably over the complete back of the hand. This allows non-stop scanning without fatigue.  

    Extremely rugged.
    DENSO auto-ID products are designed for long product cycles. This is why a magnesium frame is built in the housing of the SF1 scanner. The material was purposefully selected by DENSO’s product developers: while the frame provides the SF1 Wearable Scanner with the DENSO typical resilience, it does not add too much weight.  

    Ultra connectivity.
    AndroidTM or iOS – the SF1 Wearable Scanner links to other devices without a hitch via HID (Human Interface Device) or SPP (Serial Port Profile).  

    Top notch reading performance.
    Thanks to a special scanning algorithm the SF1 has excellent reading capabilities. 1D as well as 2D codes can be scanned omnidirectional in high speed. Even damaged codes are no issue for the SF1 Wearable Scanner. Thanks to the LED illumination control, codes that are displayed on a monitor can be scanned as well.  

    Exact single scanning or multi-scan.
    The SF1 Wearable Scanner reads individual codes faultlessly, even if multiple codes are present within the scanning area. This accuracy prevents unnecessary repeated reads of faulty scans. If needed, the SF1 is also capable of reading up to three barcodes at once to reduce work time – can also read multiple interlinked QR Codes.  

    Read confirmation.
    Intuitive scanning in harsh environments: an integrated vibration alarm and LED indicators confirm successful scans.  

    Washable base.
    The base component of the hand attachment absorbs sweat and can be washed by hand. For comfortable and hygienic work conditions.
