The Motorola CS3000 Series enables customers to easily implement 1D laser scanning. The tiny device is affordably priced and fits in a pocket or on a lanyard. The CS3000 can be utilized in standalone mode for the batch scanning of bar codes, while the CS3070 offers batch mode as well as real-time bar code data transmission to a host application via a wireless Bluetooth connection. Managing the data in batch mode is easy. Once connected to a host, the batch data can be configured for automatic transfer to an application. Since captured scans are placed in a user-definable standard ASCII file type, the information can be easily utilized to populate order forms, spreadsheets and inventory lists.
