Class-leading features of the 4820i include:

  • Powered by Adaptus(tm) Imaging Technology 5.0, the 4820i aggressively reads all linear and 2D bar codes at any angle, including those that are damaged and poorly printed, plus has the ability to capture digital images.

  • A unique thumbwheel end-cap gives operators the ability to swap batteries on-the-fly instead of docking the scanner for charging – essential for operations that run multiple shifts and require constant scanner availability.

  • Innovative battery management and robust Lithium-Ion technology which powers up to 50,000 scans before requiring a recharge.

  • Engineered to be one of the lightest and most comfortable devices in its class without sacrificing industrial- grade durability, survives 50 drops to concrete from 2m.

  • IP54 rating – protected against blown dust and water intrusion.

    The 4820i also integrates a shock absorbent housing with impact resistant over-mold that gives the 4820i the ability to endure 50 drops to concrete from 2m while its IP54 sealing prevents the intrusion of dust and liquid, making it suitable for use indoors or out. The 4820i's Bluetooth(r) wireless technology enables users to move freely around the work area unimpeded by cables.

    “To achieve the highest ROI possible, industrial enterprises require scanning solutions that are built specifically to fit their work environments,” said Melissa Fiutak, Cordless Imager Product Manager for Hand Held Products. “We've combined advanced data collection technology, a class-leading combination of ergonomics and durability, and innovative battery management to make a product that's specifically designed for improving productivity in the harshest environments.”
