SR61 Tethered Handheld Scanner


The Intermec SR61 handheld scanner meets the needs of rugged applications in warehouse, distribution center and industrial manufacturing settings. The SR61 is engineered to withstand the abuse of industrial environments and to satisfy user demands that hand held scanners be as durable as forklifts. Its high impact housing is virtually impenetrable, and its solid state design provides protection exceeding industrial and military standards. The SR61 thrives in harsh environments where dust, moisture or extreme temperatures are constants and production uptime is critical.

Interfacing Flexibility

With the ability to interface with Intermec computer products including the CN3 series, CK3, CK30, CK31, CK32, CK60, CK61, CV30, CV60, 700 series standard PCs, the SR61 scanner increases productivity while keeping costs down. Users can connect to one Intermec host device enabling multiple people to scan items for inventory management, picking, shipping and receiving, cross docking, work-in-process, tool crib, and pallet tracking, all with ease.

Scan Options

With multiple scan options, including linear, area and standard range laser, the SR61 allows users to configure the scanner to meet the specific needs of their environment, whether they include reading specific bar code symbologies, decoding poor quality or damaged barcodes with ease or utilize image capture for proof of delivery and point of service applications.

Configure and Personalize

The SR61 includes Intermec's EasySet™ software setup tool for easy configuration and personalization. The user can quickly set security options, select beeper tones and volumes, good read and error read responses, and many other customizations.
