Accu-Sort Systems (Booth 2312) announced four new products on Monday. The first adds iPhone and iPad functionality to the Web-based software already integrated into the AccuLazr line of laser bar code scanners.

“We’ve heard customers want to reduce the total cost of ownership in terms of servicing this product,” said Jon Stiles, product marketing specialist for Accu-Sort. “By enabling remote access through a Web browser or iPhone, technicians no longer have to crawl over or under moving conveyors to plug in and run diagnostics.”

The AL 7010 is a new long-range scanner, and the AL 5010 features a new adjustable raster that improves accuracy even when scanning poor quality or poorly placed bar codes.
In addition, the new Accuvision Basic Dimensioning tool is a cost-effective alternative to more accurate, certified solutions, said Stiles. The range finder is accurate to 0.6 inches instead of 0.2 inches, depending on conveyor speed.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
