  • Patent number: 10797498
    Abstract: A wireless electronic device is provided which comprises a rechargeable power supply and a power capacity indicator unit. The power capacity indicator unit comprises one or more sensors configured to detect that the wireless electronic device is out of a base charger and is in an idle state for a predetermined idle threshold. The one or more sensors are further configured to detect when a power level of the rechargeable power supply is within at least one predetermined power threshold range. The control unit is configured to activate at least one power status indicator corresponding to the at least one predetermined power threshold range when the wireless electronic device is detected to be out of the base charger and in the idle state for the predetermined idle threshold, and the detection of the power level of the rechargeable power supply is within at least one predetermined power threshold range.

  • Patent number: 9977931
    Abstract: Methods and systems of processing transponder signals received from transponders to identify the transponders are provided. A first signal including a first identifier may be received from a first transponder. The first identifier is written to the first transponder by an RFID writer after the first transponder is placed proximate to the RFID writer, and the first identifier is used to associate transponders with a first user. A second signal including the first identifier may be received from a second transponder. The first identifier is also written to the second transponder by the RFID writer when the second transponder is placed proximate to the RFID writer. The first and second transponders are associated with the first user based on receiving the first identifier from both the first and second transponders.

  • Patent number: 7147162
    Abstract: A body portion of an optical reader has an elastomeric skirt surrounding the lateral edges thereof. The laterally spaced front edges of the skirt, which are on either side of a window through which the light is emitted and received along an optical axis, are angled rearwardly from a plane normal to the axis. The front edges extend downwardly and forwardly from a front edge of the bottom wall of a body, and also extend forwardly from a front edge of the top wall of the body. These features allow the lower ends of the front edges of the skirt to be placed on a surface near the target to act as a fulcrum in rotating the handle of the scanner to selectively place the reader in close proximity to the target, while at the same time allowing the operator to view the target.

  • Patent number: 6758403
    Abstract: The invention is a data editing system for configuring a data collection device to edit decoded-out message data according to a data editing routine specified by a user programmer. In one embodiment the system includes a data collection device and a host processor assembly including a display, a user interface and a program builder program which displays on the display either representation of instructions being authored by the user-programmer or prompt messages prompting the user-programmer to information respecting requirement of the message data to be output by the data collection device. In response to information input by the user programmer, the program builder program builds a set of data editing instructions, and the set of data editing instructions are transmitted to the data collection device.
