Approximately the same size as a credit card measuring less than one half inch (1.27-cm) thick and weighing less than two ounces (48-g), the CHS 8Qi claims to be the smallest and lightest 2D barcode scanner available in the market today. It can be attached to most smartphones including the Apple iPhone®, iPod touch® and Samsung® S4 devices in a "sled type" configuration.
The CHS 8Qi is the second model in the progression of the CHS Series 8 cordless barcode scanners which are attachable to most smartphones enabling one-handed professional barcode scanning. The 8Qi is also suited for Mobile Ticketing and high-end retail environments where 2D barcodes are gaining popularity for security and data capacity. An SDK is also available.
