Posted October 17, 2011

Socket Mobile announced the introduction of a new, low-cost barcode scanner, the Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) Model 7C. The CHS 7C includes many of the performance specifications of other Socket 1D barcode scanners. The entire family of CHS barcode scanners offers users the ability to add rapid and robust barcode scanning to smartphones, tablets, notebooks and desktop computing platforms.

“We’re very excited about introducing a lightweight, highly reliable and performance rich cordless Bluetooth barcode scanner with an introductory MSRP which is 25% less than our current entry-level CHS scanner,” said Samantha Chu, data collection product manager at Socket Mobile. “We have many current and potential customers whose business needs only require a low-cost 1D barcode scanner, and we wanted to address this market segment with a practical and affordable unit that gets the job done while providing a quick and noticeable ROI.
