Latest Extension Of The MARK Family Of Products Represents Ideal Entry For Organisations With A Focus On Outbound Processes, Inventory, Assembly
ProGlove, the leader in ergonomic wearables for industry, launches a new wearable scanner. MARK Basic standard range (SR) addresses the needs of organisations with a focus on short distance scanning. Typically, this includes workflow documentations in environments such as outbound processes like packaging, inventory in retail and assembly processes. The new MARK Basic SR processes 1D and 2D barcodes, handles up to 5,000 scans per full-charge and works best at a scan range of 10 to 80 cm. The latest addition to the MARK family of products is available as of May 28th (EU) / June 4th (NA).
MARK Basic SR complements MARK Basic mid range (MR). Both scanners mark an ideal entry for organisations into industrial barcode scanning. Their deployment via plug & play is effortless and addresses the industry’s increased need for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) options. The ProGlove Gateway along with the ProGlove Insight Mobile App as well as the respective SDKs for iOS and Android allow for easy access to the corporate network.
Aside from MARK Basic, ProGlove also offers the premium scanners of the MARK 2 series. These wearable barcode scanners come with a battery charge that can handle up to 10,000 scans. MARK 2 SR and MR also feature greater durability and the option to connect to the corporate network via radio frequency. The MARK Display with an integrated e-ink display is ProGlove’s top seller and rounds off its unique portfolio of wearable barcode scanners.
The wearable scanners of the MARK family of products are the smallest and lightest barcode scanners on the market. With the size of a matchbox and a weight of roughly 40 grams they are easily ten times lighter than conventional barcode scanners. All MARK scanners fully charge in less than two hours. ProGlove provides two different Charging Stations that are compatible with all MARK devices. In addition, ProGlove offers wearable solutions for left and right-handed people in standard industry sizes and the Reel, a clip or lanyard consumable.
