Newland WD2 Wearable 2D Bluetooth Barcode Scanner 

The all new WD2 scanner is part of Newlands versatile 'Nwear' range of data capture products designed to maximise productivity within any busy Warehouse, Logistics or Shipping operation and Postal Service.

Outstanding Performance

Equipped with Newlands 2D Megapixel scanning technology, the WD2 can effortlessly capture high-density, high volume and distorted barcodes printed on a wide range of materials. The mid-range version can capture codes from further away than normal and scan a wide variety of barcodes that standard range scanners may struggle with.

Scanning Options

The Standard range device uses a red aiming crosshair design that enables the use of 'Acuscan' for precision scanning on smaller codes. Even when codes are grouped close together, 'Acuscan' enables workers to set their sights with confidence for picking the exact item they need within a list. 

The mid-range version uses a single red dot that can be seen from a greater distance for pin-pointing larger, isolated codes.

Multi Cradle charging

The WD2 has a compact two-bay charging station powered via a USB-C cable or a multi-region PSU. The cradle has fixing points for mounting, and the quick click docking magnets keep the WD2 securely in place even if mounted vertically. The cradles can be linked together to create a 4, 6, 8 or 10 bay multi dock cradle, optimized to 100% charging efficiently via a single PSU.

Hands-free working

The WD2 connects to an Electronic Hand Strap with an integrated scan trigger comfortably positioned between thumb and forefinger. It is available for both right- and left-handed operators and comes in two sizes to cater to small/medium and large hands. The large strap will also fit over thicker gloves for cold or heavy-duty applications. The scanner will stay secure with a quick click docking magnet and additional securing strap until the operator wants to remove it. The ergonomics and lightweight make it perfect for long-sustained scanning applications where “two hands are better than one.”

Stable wireless communication

The WD2 uses a strong anti-interference Bluetooth 5.0 technology. When used with the WD1 Android wrist-mounted solution, the WD2 can be directly paired by scanning an onscreen 2D barcode.
