Symbol's state-of-the-art scan engine with bright, easy to see scan line, delivers premium scanning performance under virtually any lighting condition-even sunlight or bright artificial light. A high-contrast, anti-reflective liquid crystal display makes data easy to read in low lighting or outdoor conditions. Integrated WLAN communication in the SPT1846 extends the reach of IT resources, enabling real-time information flow between the point of activity and your remote host system, making your business truly mobile.

Empower Your Work Force
