KDC280 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Barcode Scanner

2D Imager Bluetooth Barcode Data Collector

The KDC280 enables diverse mobile Auto-Identification applications for collecting and storing barcode data. The newest model to the KDC family features Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to enable faster and simpler connection methods as well as use with smartwatches, smartglasses, and other wearable smart devices.

A built-in display and keypad eliminate blind erroneous data collection and enable interactive processes. A rechargeable battery that is easily replaced can recharge from any USB port and allows more than 17,000 barcode scans with a 1-second interval. With 8MB of onboard memory that stores over 400,000 UPC product barcodes or 60,000 product database records, memory shortages are no longer a concern.

The KDC280 comes with KTSync® software and SDK for Android, iOS, and Windows devices. KTSync includes a keyboard wedging feature, application generation, DB lookup, inventory management, and KDC configuration features. SDK provides technical support from our top engineers and development team.
