The terminals’ ergonomic design, which features a slim handle and built-in
hand strap, makes them easy to hold for long periods of time. A specially
arranged keypad, including 12 function keys, allows the devices to be operated
with only one hand or even with just a thumb. A large, 3.5-inch HVGA color
display lets the operator quickly see large amounts of information at a single

DENSO’s advanced charge-coupled device (CCD) technology enables the BHT-1200
terminals to read codes at 400 scans per second, three times as fast as
conventional laser scanners. The devices can read even complicated or damaged
codes at high speed, permitting fast, uninterrupted scanning. In addition,
they can read codes from as far away as 25 feet or more, allowing the operator
to scan items on all shelves from floor to ceiling without having to change
position or use a stepladder. A built-in 5.0-megapixel camera enables photos
of defective or mislabeled products to be taken without the need to carry a
separate camera.

The devices also feature fast, reliable wireless communication that supports
the latest IEEE802.11b/g/n standards, eliminating bottlenecks due to slow data
transmission. Highly reliable WPA/WPA2 network security prevents unauthorized
access to data.

Like all DENSO terminals, the BHT-1200 Series models have an extremely robust
construction. The devices have been tested to resist damage after being
dropped onto a concrete floor 30 times from 1.5 meters (4.9 feet).

“The BHT-1200 Series terminals feature our latest advances in high-performance
technology, all designed to make scanning quicker and easier,” said Fran
Labun, vice president, Sales Group. “They offer our customers a way of
increasing operator efficiency for even their most demanding applications.”
