Wasp Barcode Technologies Launches Bi-Colored, Long Range Barcode Scanner

(PLANO, Texas- May 16, 2012) - Wasp Barcode Technologies, a leading provider of small business productivity solutions, today announced the launch of the WLR8950 Bi-Color CCD Scanner. The WLR8950 is the newest barcode scanner providing improved accuracy with bi-color technology by using two LED light sources to decode barcodes printed in various colors. The WLR8950 also delivers flexible, long range scanning paired with lightweight, durable construction.

The bi-color technology enables the WLR8950 to automatically change its light source between red and green to decode barcodes printed in various colors. And the green LED light specifically works to increase the accuracy in reading poorly printed barcode labels. The WLR8950 can easily read barcodes up to 12" away due to its long range scan engine. And with the high-quality ABS plastic construction and pistol grip design, the scanner is comfortable to use in any environment.

"The WLR8950 was designed specifically to improve the accuracy of barcode scanning for our customers," says Brian Sutter, director of marketing at Wasp Barcode Technologies. "Our other scanners are very accurate but poorly printed or colored barcodes can be a challenge for any scanner. This scanner provides a cost effective, easy to use, long range scanner designed for repetitive applications where time and accuracy are important, such as retail environments."

The WLR8950 is easy to install and will connect directly to your PC by either a USB or PS2 cable. The improved accuracy of the scanner allows for quick and accurate data entry, while the cabled design makes it simple to scan items in the workstation. Comfort is also key, as the Wasp WLR8950 sports ergonomic form factor and durable construction prevents breakage.

Features of the WLR8950 include:

  • Scan 1D barcodes up to 12" away
  • Easily decode colored barcodes
  • Read barcodes with a PCR as low as 30%
  • Durable ABS plastic construction
  • Withstands multiple 6' drops to concrete
  • Pistol grip design for rapid scanning

The WLR8950 Bi-Color CCD Barcode Scanner with USB Cable and WLR8950 Bi-Color CCD Barcode Scanner with PS2 Cable are being introduced at a list price of $250 each.
