Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions has unveiled its new Solaris 7980g scanner aimed at the growing retail mobile payment space.
Designed to help retailers address the latest payment trends, the scanner has the ability to read 2D barcodes off of mobile phones, allowing shoppers to use their personal mobile devices in place of both credit cards and retail loyalty cards.
“With the launch of mobile payment offerings like Apple Pay and Google Wallet, consumers can not only pay for goods with a simple tap, but at the same time receive and earn loyalty points, discounts and promotions directly to their device,” Manan Arora, product marketing manager, scanning at Honeywell Sensing & Productivity Solutions, said.
“The Solaris 7980g allows retailers to prepare for this next generation of mobile payment.”
The Solaris 7980g scanner provides up to 80 percent faster barcde scanning when compared with current competitor models on the market, according to Honeywell.
It also offers the flexibility to be able to read traditional 1D barcides, which the retail market still relies on heavily.
Honeywell added that the Solaris 7980g scanner has “the strongest imaging technology in the market”, and is able to read barcodes of any colour and from any angle.
“The scanner uses a newly-developed white LED light rather than the bright red light of traditional scanners. The scanner is powered by USB and installation is quick and easy,” the company outlined.
