Socket Mobile is expanding its DuraCase product line to support Apple’s iPhone. It’s a one-handed, protective sled for both the mobile phone and attached 800 Series barcode scanning solution.
The DuraCase sled attaches the iPhone 6, 7, or 8 and any one of the Socket Mobile 800 Series 1D or 2D scanners, creating a one-handed solution. The sled protects from common drops or bumps without blocking the screen.
The DuraCase with scanner is extremely portable and lightweight, it is easily carried through a retail or warehouse environment for long hours. It is also ideal for field service businesses since it can easily go on the road with service workers.
The DuraCase is designed to charge both the attachable barcode scanner and iPhone in a single-charging design. For larger deployments, the 6 Multi-Bay Charger charges up to six DuraCase solutions at once.
In addition, Socket Mobile is also announcing the release of the DuraScan D790 – a high-end barcode scanner that reads DPM (Direct Part Marking) code while maintaining the same durability and color selection as the rest of the DuraScan series.
The D790 is designed to read DPM codes – codes intended to last as long as the object or instrument marked with the code- regardless of size, surface, contrast or density. The D790 also supports the more common 1D, stacked, 2D and postal codes. The D790 scanner provides effortless, optimal scanning performance, with omnidirectional reading for intuitive barcode capture.
As an extension of the DuraScan series, the D790 is a rugged barcode scanner that withstands water, dust, and other hazards, in an ergonomic shape for extended use. The D790 is as tough as the DPM codes it scans.
Both the DuraCase for iPhone and the DuraScan D790 are available for pre-order for $999 and $179, respectively. They’re due to ship later this quarter.
