SF61B Healthcare Pocket Scanner Automated data capture is fundamental to ensuring patient safety in healthcare workflows, driving an increased demand for barcode scanners that can move with the clinician. To address this challenge and make it easier to collect data at the point of care, Honeywell developed the SF61B healthcare pocket scanner. Small enough to stow in a pocket, it travels with the clinician and can be quickly accessed or securely tucked away when use of both hands is required. This makes it ideal for today’s busy healthcare nvironment, where complete freedom of movement is essential, and the ability to scan should always be within arm’s reach. The SF61B integrates with existing healthcare information management systems, and – with the simple scan of a barcode – easily pairs with iOS, Android™ and Windows® Mobile smartphones and tablets. Its compact form factor is small enough to fit into awkward or constricted spaces, and a high-performance imager makes it easy to scan all 1D and 2D codes – regardless of angle or orientation. To ensure safe operation in patient-facing applications, the SF61B uses a laser-free design that provides high-performance scanning without the risk of eye injury inherent in laser-based designs. Its powerful white illumination field can even double as a makeshift flashlight. FEATURES & BENEFITS Compact enough to move with the clinician, the SF61B can be quickly stowed in a smock pocket when both hands are needed. Bluetooth wireless technology pairs easily with iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices, with a range of up to 100m (325 ft). Includes high-performance area-imaging technology for highly responsive, omnidirectional scanning even on curved or translucent surfaces. Disinfectant-ready housing with IP64 seal rating protects against the harmful effects of repeated chemical wipe-downs. Completely safe laser-free design with LED aimer is ideal for patient-facing applications. As a pocket scanner, the SF61B was engineered for all-day wireless performance. An integrated Bluetooth® Class 1 radio enables wireless communication at ranges up to 100 m (325 ft) from the host, and its field-replaceable battery has been tested to last up to 25,000 scans on a single charge. With its high-performance, laser-free design and portable form factor, the SF61B is an ideal scanning solution for healthcare environments.
