The sturdy radio hand-held scanner BCS 160ex BT from BARTEC offers all the highly developed ergonomic and functional features required in industrial applications. The scan line is wider than in conventional laser scanners and therefore easier to see. This makes aiming at the barcode much easier – even on hard-to-access objects. Its high scanning and decoding frequency of 500 Hz enables easy scanning of a large number of barcodes in quick succession. The BCS 160ex BT has a robust enclosure that can withstand use even in the toughest conditions. Even dropping onto the ground several times from a height of 2 m will not damage this scanner.


The Radio hand-held scanner BCS 160ex BT with integrated decoder is designed for wireless data capture in real time and ensures a highly efficient operation in manufacturing halls, warehouses and other sites. When capturing data, the user can move freely up to a radius of 30 m around the base station. The Radio hand-held scanner BCS 160ex BT is produced with the “intrinsically safe“ type of protection and can be used directly in hazardous areas Zone 1, 2 and Zone 21, 22.

Base station

The base station is the charging station (cradle) and also serves as a radio receiver station and can be installed in either hazardous or non-hazardous areas. The RS232 or USB cable enables a connection to all standard hosts.
