Download Spec Sheet

The MS1633 FocusBT wireless area-imaging scanner combines the freedom of Bluetooth® wireless technology with features found in the popular MS1690 Focus. Patented RangeGate® technology allows the FocusBT to scan and store bar codes when out of range of a host system. Stored scans are automatically downloaded to the host when the connection is re-established
  • TotalFreedom™: Expands scanner functionality by allowing image processing, decoding and formatting plug-ins to be loaded directly to the scanner instead of the host system

  • FirstFlash®: Increases productivity by scanning nearly every standard bar code on first LED flash

  • Omnidirectional Scanning: Eliminates need to orientate hand-held area imager to bar code

  • Removable Li-ion Battery Pack: Easily remove and replace battery packs without tools - plus remote charging allows for 24/7 scanning

  • USB Bluetooth® Adaptor: Cable-free adaptor simultaneously enables Bluetooth® connectivity for host system and up to 7 other Bluetooth® devices

  • PowerSave Modes/Power Switch: Both features conserve battery life and extend uptime
