Posted November 18, 2015

CS4070SR_Merchandising_310-800x600Whether your workers are in retail or field service, field sales or transportation and logistics, the new features in the Zebra CS4070 make it easier than ever to scan, with a hassle-free constant Bluetooth connection to laptops and tablets, plus the ability to format your data, your way, to meet any application requirement.

The CS4070 is the perfect companion scanner solution to seamlessly integrate with virtually any line of business application.

New Features

  • Full support for Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) – Now, the CS4070 supports all characters — ASCII, non-ASCII and non-printable keystrokes — such as a dash, parenthesis or tab. You have the complete control you need to format the data to meet your application’s requirements, ensuring compatibility with virtually any line of business application.
  • Direct support for Bluetooth keyboard features – Direct support for seven Bluetooth keyboard features: Caps lock override; simulated Caps lock, convert case, ignore unknown characters, emulate keypad, keyboard FN1 substitution and function key mapping. Enables customization of decoded data for easy integration into your line of business applications, plus faster and easier deployment — IT no longer needs to scan up to seven bar codes (one per feature) with each CS4070 device.
  • Handheld presentation scanning mode – Users can scan bar codes without having to press any buttons to trigger the scan. Cycle times in retail, field service, field sales and transportation and logistics are reduced. Productivity is improved along with user comfort – many motions are now eliminated. Cashiers can complete purchases faster; backroom workers can take inventory or process incoming shipments faster; field service technicians can quickly scan all the tools and parts in the truck to ensure they have what they need for the day’s work orders; delivery drivers can quickly capture the bar codes on packages to enable end-to-end track and trace – and more.
  • Bluetooth connection protection – The Bluetooth key must be depressed for about two seconds to disconnect the Bluetooth connection. In the event of an accidental Bluetooth disconnect, the auto-reconnect feature (enabled by default) instantly and automatically re-establishes connectivity. Prevents accidental disconnects, providing a dependable Bluetooth connection that protects worker productivity and eliminates workflow disruptions.
  • Application-level control of the beeper and pager motor – Developers have full control over the type of scanning feedback that is used and when, and can also opt to provide a drop-down menu to allow users to choose beeper only, vibration only or both. In addition, reaction time has been cut in half, reduced from 900 ms to less than 450 ms. Provides the flexibility to meet the needs of different areas in different businesses. For example, for situations where there may be a lot of background noise, a beep or combination beep/vibration can make it easy for cashiers at the retail point-of-sale, field service technicians in noisy equipment rooms and DSD drivers in a parking lot to confirm a successful scan. Vibration only feedback can protect the shopping experience, eliminating the annoying constant beep when retail workers and merchandisers are taking inventory in the front of the store.
