SF61B Rugged 1D/2D Pocket Scanner

Traditional gun-shaped scanners weren’t designed for the worker on the go. To address this, we designed the SF61B with a unique and compact form factor so that it can be quickly accessed or securely stowed away as needed. And with its full-size capabilities, data collection tasks are accomplished with more agility and efficiency than ever before.
