Wearable scanners can provide the hands-free scanning your workforce needs to maximize productivity. But today’s workers have high expectations for wearable devices — a modern design, a minimal footprint, so intuitive that virtually no training is required, plus point-and-shoot scanning simplicity on every barcode. Your business requires a design that’s just as at home in customer-facing areas as the warehouse, wearable options for maximum use case flexibility, a rugged design to ensure a long lifecycle with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), scanning options that match the needs of your environment, plus backroom accessories that reduce management time and cost. Now, you can have it all with the RS5100 Wearable Scanner. A comfortable, featherlight-yet-rugged industrial design that is at home anywhere in your facility. Zebra’s advanced scan engines for unmatched scanning performance. Five interchangeable wearing styles for user comfort and application flexibility. And features that drive ease-of-use and manageability to a new level.

custom fit with the new Enterprise Hand Mount accessory, which offers a range of sizes for right and left hands. And users can adjust the scanner position on the hand to achieve the perfect balance and optimal scan angle for the ultimate in comfort and user productivity. For workers who prefer to wear the scanner like a ring, there is a single finger mount with three trigger options — single, double and top-mounted. The single trigger rotates between right and left sides, allowing users to choose and easily switch scanning hands. The double trigger enables workers to change hands on the fly. The industry-first top-mounted trigger allows the RS5100 to be rotated to the side of the finger, eliminating any protrusion above the hand. A one-size-fits-all back of hand mount allows workers to reach into small spaces, is ambidextrous and easily adjustable to accommodate gloves. And a retracting lanyard trigger worn around the neck or on a belt keeps the scanner handy yet out of the way — ideal for occasional scanning.

Freedom From Cords and Cables

With Bluetooth, there’s no cable to the host device for workers to manage — hands-free scanning improves comfort, usability and productivity.

Programmable LEDs Provide Line-on-Sight User Feedback

Multiple LEDs on the back of the RS5100 can blink to indicate whether a scan was successful and more.

Prevent the Spread of Germs With Personal Trigger Assemblies

Since the trigger assembly is the only part of the RS5100 that touches skin, we created a modular two-piece design that separates the trigger assembly from the scanner body, providing the option to give each worker their own trigger.
