MARK 2 Wearable Barcode Scanner

May 7, 2019
ProGlove's MARK 2 smart glove connects the workforce to the IIoT, giving them a decisive edge in the digitized Industry 4.0.

MARK 2 wearable barcode scanners can be connected to other devices such as tablets, smartwatches or wearable terminals via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and offer a scan range of up to 5 ft (150 cm). An ideal choice for picking, palletizing or working at packing stations, the scanner features adjustable feedback options including acoustic signals, vibration, and LEDs on the back of the hand—users no longer have to constantly check process steps on a control monitor.


The MARK 2 can connect to a corporate network via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or 868 MHz radiofrequency. It enables the user to scan up to 5 ft away from a device and includes a battery that holds up to a 15-hour charge. In combination with tablets, smartphones, and other portable devices, employees have the freedom to work without a station. Instant Worker Feedback from MARK 2 provides information to employees, reporting errors or pointing out prioritized shipments.


Industry leaders, such as BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, IKEA, and Bosch, are already realizing the value of hands-free barcode scanning. The technology saves up to 4 sec/scan. In industries where workers scan hundreds or thousands of times per day—from automotive assembly to manufacturing to logistics to retail and aviation—this adds up to a major increase in efficiency. Plus, the gloves are far more ergonomic than traditional scanning technologies, providing a safer environment for industrial workers.
