Motorola, Inc. has introduced the RS507, a hands-free imager that is intended to boost the efficiency of scanning processes. The device initially will work in tandem with Motorola's WT4000 wearable mobile computer. It includes support for 1D and 2D barcodes, providing a means of extending hands-free cordless scanning to Motorola's complete line of mobile computers in the future. The RS507 incorporates Motorola's Symbol SE4500 imaging engine, offering omni-directional capabilities and a high degree of motion tolerance. It is especially applicable to operations in warehouse, postal and pharmaceutical distribution environments, the vendor said. The device also comes in a corded configuration. The cordless model relies on Bluetooth technology to integrate with the WT4000. It can be worn on one hand with the WT4000 on the same or opposite arm, or on a belt. In support of the RS507, Motorola is offering comprehensive coverage under its "Service From the Start" program, which covers repairs to all kinds of damage caused by normal operation. The RS507 is currently available in the U.S., Canada and Europe through Motorola PartnerSelect members and the companies own sales channel. It is expected to be made available in Australia and New Zealand in the second quarter of this year.
