Honeywell SPS (Booth B3435) highlighted its recently released 8680i Wearable Mini-Mobile, a compact hands-free cordless device combining the form factor of a ring scanner with integrated computing and connectivity.

Designed to improve efficiency and productivity for scan-intensive tasks, the device offers 8-hour and 10-hour battery options and ring scanner or glove-mounted versions. The lightweight, Wi-Fi-enabled device provides workers with a two-button interface and a display of information such as battery status and scan results. By eliminating the need to hold a separate mobile computer, the 8680i can improve workers’ scanning times by approximately 5 seconds per typical transaction.

Honeywell also showcased Connected Freight, a shipment monitoring solution that delivers real-time data at the trailer, pallet or even package level. Equipped with seven sensors, disposable tags relay information to a Gateway device or standard cellular device to transmit data from anywhere in the world to a portal accessible by any supply chain stakeholder.


Modex 2018 is scheduled to be held April 9-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the materials handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete coverage of the show.
