The compact, lightweight (33 g) design allows LEO-W to be deployed for a wide range of applications. For long-duration use typical of shift work, the built-in battery supports up to 8 hours operation and can be recharged within 1.5 hours. Overall, LEO-W provides a great-value mobile data collection solution with the durability to withstand rough handling in industrial environments.
Built-In Bluetooth Connectivity Facilitates Easy Integration
Equipped with Bluetooth communication technology, the LEO-W barcode scanner ring can be easily paired with a wide range of devices for real-time data collection.
