Handheld mobile computers speed up data collection for many business-critical applications in industries such as manufacturing and logistics. Improve work efficiency with a large touch screen and ability to instantly read dirty or distant barcodes. The OCR function can optmise work even if no barcodes are present.
Our new, full-range model of handheld mobile computers, the BT-A700 Series, is capable of reading codes from a minimum distance of 1 in. to a maximum distance of 10m(30 ft). Its impressive reading range and speed enable users to read codes instantaneously in one hand not only while standing but also while seated in a forklift. This leads to impressive productivity improvements. The combination of the first-in-class full-range camera and ultra-high-speed decoding allows instantaneous reading of barcodes even from an angle. The ease of on-site use has also been greatly enhanced. The compact body with a largest-in-class 5-inch screen offers excellent grip to allow stable one-handed operation. Rugged design with a tempered glass screen withstands drops from heights of 2.4 m (8 ft). The device can also be used continuously for up to 32 hours.
KEYENCE developed a proprietary full-range camera capable of capturing codes at the optimum focal point from near-range to far-range distances. This enables code reading across the entire range.
Excellent One-Handed Operability
The reader is easy to point at the target and uses a gun-grip shape that fits easily in your hand. We combined the conventional design with intuitive keys enabling single-handed operation.
Input using both hands
Input using one hand
The BT-A500 Series Handheld Mobile Computer with Android™ OS dramatically improves on-site efficiency by boosting the speed of repeated daily tasks. In addition to the ability to instantly read codes under any conditions, the shape of the device is optimized for Android OS performance, allowing for fast one-handed operation. This model also has excellent durability for tough conditions. The rigid chassis and damper mechanism enables the device to withstand drops from 2 m(6.6 ft) as well as 20000 repeated impacts from 30 cm(0.98 ft). Built-In implementation, maintenance, and support tools are also available. The kitting function allows users to copy settings from a single unit to multiple devices and the remote access function enables support and troubleshooting of a device independent of its location.

Fast One-Handed Operation with Hard-Keys and Touch Panel
The device includes a finger rest hook on the back for improved handling and stability. In addition, the LCD panel is raised slightly from the grip to allow for stable one-handed operation of both hard keys and the touch screen.
Highly Durable Structure for Tough Conditions
The rigid chassis significantly prevents device deformation and a damping mechanism helps absorb repeated impacts to the main PCB.
