The Grip family of barcode reader handles for MAH200 and MAH300 series barcode readers withstand demanding application conditions in high use environments, with an extended-use ergonomic design for prolonged reader life. A new battery handle option provides rugged, cordless mobility for high volume bar code reading environments. Battery handle versions are available with a standard capacity battery (GRIP2) or high-capacity (GRIP3) Li-Ion Battery system. These barcode reader handles promise up to three million activations for extended trigger life. They provide well-protected reader window and illumination LEDs, and an elasatomer overmold improves drop-shock survivability.
