The Wasp Inventory Control Standard software supports one user, comes with a Wasp WWS550i handheld barcode scanner and a Wasp WPL305 barcode printer, and can be used by a small retail, shipping, contracting, or manufacturing business to track and manage inventory. The software allows the user to define different inventory sites, such as a warehouse, a stock room, and a supply closet, as well as different locations within each site, such as a bin, a shelf, or a particular pallet. Features enable inventory to be tracked by location, serial numbers, and other criteria for inventory management. This software is compatible with computers that run Microsoft Windows 8 Professional, Windows 7 Professional, Windows Vista Premium, Windows XP (SP3) Professional, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003 (32- or 64-bit), have a 750 MHz or faster processor, have at least 1 GB of system memory and 10 GB of storage, have a 1024x768 display with at least 256 colors, and have a DVD drive for software installation.
The Wasp WWS550I handheld barcode scanner connects wirelessly to a smartphone, tablet, or computer and can be used to scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors scan barcodes from up to 12" away at a speed of up to 230 scans per second in continuous mode. CCD barcode scanners are typically more accurate than laser scanners and more resistant to wear. A USB wireless adapter allows the barcode reader to wirelessly transmit barcode data to an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet from up to 33 ft. away unobstructed or a Microsoft Windows computer from up to 160 ft. away unobstructed. The lithium-ion battery enables the barcode reader to make up to 3,960 scans on one charge. Indicators alert the user when the device is out of wireless range or running low on battery power. The barcode reader weighs 5.6 oz. and measures 6.3 x 2.4 x 4.2 inches (H x L x W). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; L is length, the horizontal distance from front to back; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right.) It can withstand drops of up to 5 ft. on a concrete floor.
The Wasp WPL305 printer comes equipped with serial, parallel, and USB ports, prints 5" per second in black at 203 dpi, and can be used to print barcode labels or other media up to 4.25" wide. Direct thermal printers use heat instead of ink and are typically smaller, quieter, faster, and more energy-efficient than dot-matrix printers. The WPL305 can print up to 5" per second at 203 dpi (dots per inch) for print clarity and contains 8 MB of SDRAM memory for responsiveness. The 4 MB of flash memory provides storage for graphics and data. Serial, parallel, and USB ports allow connectivity to a computer or other devices (cables sold separately). The printer's double-walled casing is made of ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), which helps resist impact. A reflective media sensor allows the printer to identify the gaps, holes, notches, or black marks between labels to print the labels accurately. A paper roll cover can be opened to load media. EPL, WPL, and ZPL programming languages are standard. The auto-detectable power adapter can accept AC power between 110 and 240 volts. The printer weighs 7 lb. and measures 7.4 x 8.39 x 12.36 inches (H x W x D). It accepts a roll of media measuring between 0.78 and 4.4 inches wide and up to 5" in diameter with a 1" to 3" core.
The printer includes WaspLabeler barcode label design software, which contains more than 100 predesigned barcode templates and can be used to design, create, and print linear 1D and 2D barcode labels for inventory tracking. The software allows the user to choose from more than 100 predesigned barcode label templates or design new labels. Barcode data can be typed directly into the software interface and assigned to particular barcode labels, or it can be pulled from an external source, such as a Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, or Intuit QuickBooks file. Completed barcode labels may be printed to a networked, Windows-compatible printer.
Wasp Barcode Technologies manufactures barcode scanners, printers, labels and other data capture and tracking solutions for businesses. The company, founded in 1994, is headquartered in Plano, TX.
