The ‘Go-Everywhere’ Featherweight and Rugged Ring Scanner

Finally, there’s a ring scanner that’s designed for use in customer-facing areas, as well as your warehouse and distribution center — the RS5100 next-generation ring scanner. It’s practically weightless, and so small your customers won’t even notice it. There’s a wearing option that will bring comfort to every worker. Best-in-class scanning enables instant capture of virtually every barcode at twice the range of legacy Bluetooth ring scanners. The rugged design outshines competitive devices. And a long list of features provides unsurpassed versatility and flexibility.

The RS5100 sets a new standard for single-finger rugged Bluetooth ring scanners. Workers get featherweight comfort, maximum ease-of-use, plus reliable point-and-shoot scanning on every barcode. The RS5100’s rugged design is built for industrial environments like the warehouse and manufacturing floor, while its modern design and small footprint make it equally suited for customer-facing areas. You also get a long lifecycle, industry-leading scanning options to meet different needs and backroom accessories that reduce management time and cost.

Two scan engine options allow you to choose the imager that best matches your scanning and aimer requirements — LED or laser. Both imager engines deliver first time capture of even damaged, dirty and poorly printed 1D/2D barcodes through PRZM Intelligent Imaging, a megapixel sensor and superior algorithms — plus a wide field of view for easy capture of large barcodes. In addition, the two imagers can scan barcodes twice the distance as the legacy RS507x ring scanner


At just over two ounces and two cubic inches, it’s practically weightless (about 1/2 the size and weight of the legacy RS507x ring scanner). Wear it on a finger, the back of a hand or on a lanyard. The single-sided trigger model accommodates gloves; the double trigger model lets workers switch hands on the fly. And the top-mounted trigger on both models allows rotation of the RS5100 to the side of a finger for near-zero protrusion


You get a best-in-class rugged design with a drop, tumble and IP sealing specification — so you can count on reliable operation despite drops, bumps, dust and even a high-pressure hose down. The long-life trigger handles millions of actuations. And the RS5100 is built to handle the high levels of electrostatic discharge common with use on concrete flooring
