They offer simple programming solutions to make mobile computing fast and powerful. Our system is preferred by developers since it so easy to design around, and allows the developer to focus on the data side of their development, not complicated programming and compiling of software that many other terminals require. Some of the industry leading features on the 7000 series terminals include:
• Long Range Radio - 3.3 Miles!
• Rugged Color TFT LCD Display
• Very Small & Lightweight
• Comfortable Ergonomic Housing
• Shock Mounted LCD & PCB
• Splash & Dust Resistant
• Scan 1D or 2D Barcodes
Worth Data has been the leader in small size, long range RF Terminals for over 15 years. Our engineers worked long and hard to create a superior product, and it is truly unmatched by any other mobile device on the market. Our incredible long RF range means less installation cost in wiring, special site preparation, expensive surveys, and the the need for far fewer access points — one single Base Station can easily handle the RF traffic of as many as 64 RF Terminals. Further, with the exceptional RF range, one Base Station can easily cover very large buildings and facilities, eliminating the need for costly additional wiring or multiple access points.
There are several configurations available including our most popular model, the LT7101H with an enhanced 1D bar code laser scanner and an ergonomic gun handle designed for comfortable all day scanning.
There are also models with our powerful 2D bar code scan engine built right into the unit, as well as models featuring Bluetooth wireless technology for mobile printing and communication.

Despite its small size and weight - the mobile 7100 RF Terminals are less than 10 ounces with the integrated bar code laser scanner and Li-ion battery - this unit can cover over 1,000,000 square feet of open warehouse space and has over 3.3 miles of line of site RF range in an open area!
Each scan, and each time you press the Enter key, data is transmitted to the host. The host software sends prompts back to the display and can even trigger voice message broadcasts at the same time. Real time data transactions allow the operator to update a database, track products, do accounting tasks, warehouse management, and do many varied transactions all remotely with an easy to hold handheld device.
Commitment To Quality
The 7100 RF Terminals and Base Stations are proudly Made in the USA of U.S. and imported parts right in our California facility. Since we do all of own engineering, software development, product design, testing, and assembly we can control every aspect of the quality and features, providing you with a finished product that is simply the best available.
Rugged Design Features
The 7000 series terminal is a designed for rugged environments and can holdup in industrial applications. Our tests show no damage after multiple 5 foot drops to concrete. We have implemented several design features to improve the toughness of the unit including:
The 7000 Series Terminal has also been designed with the ergonomics of the user in mind. It comes with a large high visibility 15 Line TFT Color QVGA LCD Display, plus the keypad layout has been designed to make scanning and keying easier. The small size and weight of the unit, along with the comfortable curved shape, make it very easy to hold and scan for long periods of time.
Our ergonomic handle is sold on the unit when you purchase any of the LT71XXH models - you could also add a handle to your terminals at a later date if you want to by ordering the H7000 unit. The ergonomic handle makes scanning much easier for long term all day use and is more popular than the PDA style due to its ease of use.
Integrated High Speed Bar Code Scanner
The 7000 Series Terminals all come with your choice of high speed bar code scanners. The LT7101x, LT7111x, LT7102x and LT7112x units come with a 1D bar code laser scanner built into the top of the unit. When you press the scan button, or the trigger on the handle, a laser beam scans at 100 times per second to pick up even poorly printed or damaged bar codes easily. The unit can also scan very high density codes with narrow bars as small as 2.5mil .0025" (0.064mm) - equivalent to 23cpi Code 39!
Bar code types supported include UPC/EAN, UCC-EAN-128, Code 39, Full ASCII Code 39, Code 128, GS1-128, ITF-14, GTIN, Codabar, MSI Plessey, GS1 DataBar (RSS-14) omni and stacked variants, ITF Interleaved 2 of 5, Standard 2 of 5, Bookland EAN, Code 11, LabelCode4, LabelCode5, Storage Tek, and Code 93. The reader auto discriminates automatically.
Below are the typical range of reading for the 7000 RF Terminals. A 6 mil barcode is considered high density, the 10mil and 14mil are typical general purpose medium density, and the 40 mil and 100 mil are large low density codes.
2D Matrix & Omni-Directional Bar Code Scanning
The LT7121 & LT7121H come with a omni-directional 2D barcode scanner built right into the top of the unit. When you press the scan button, or the trigger on the handle, a high speed 80 frame per second imaging engine scans 2D matrix barcodes and standard 1D bar codes easily. The scan engine is also omni-directional, so you don't have to have the bar code lined up to scan it.
It reads all popular 2D matrix type bar codes such as PDF417, MicroPDF417, MaxiCode, DataMatrix (ECC 2000, 1400), Composite Codes, Aztec, QR Code, MicroQR Code, as well as USPS Intelligent Mail Bar Codes, US Postnet, US Planet, UK Postal, Japan Postal, Australian Postal, and Dutch Postal, along with many others. The 2D bar code can have up to 1024 characters encoded in the code.
In addition, it still reads the standard 1D barcodes including; UPC/EAN, UCC-EAN 128, Code 39, Full ASCII Code 39, TriOptic Code 39, Code 32, Code 128, Codabar, MSI, Code 11, GS1 DataBar, Composite, ITF Interleaved 2 of 5, DTF Discrete 2 of 5, Bookland EAN, Code 93 and many others. The LT7021 and LT7021H scanning engine also scans very high density codes with narrow bars as small as 2.5mil .0025" (0.064mm) - equivalent to 23cpi Code 39!
Internal Li-ion Rechargeable Battery
We are using a industry standard NP-120 Li-ion battery in the unit which has a capacity of 1950mAh. In the event of failure this battery is field replaceable - via 2 screws on the door or handle. With our advanced battery charging you can have a full charge in 2-3 hours or less! Intelligent charging replenishes only the power used - no need to fully discharge batteries or wait through a full charging cycle for partially used batteries! With the LT71xxH Handle units you will get a second battery included in the handle which will effectively double the battery life of the unit.
Low Cost Mobile Computing System
A starter system of one LT7111 Terminal and one B5011 Base Station with a USB cable is just $2200. Additional terminals are inexpensive starting at only $1,495.00 each. Up to 64 Terminals can talk to one Base Station with little or no contention.
You can start small, develop your applications, and then expand at a low incremental cost. Our unsurpassed RF performance, at the lowest price in the industry, results in an unbeatable value!

Ergonomic Gun Handle
B5011 Base Station Connection Options
The B5011 Base Stations are available with multiple connection options - a serial interface, to a DB9 or DB25 COM Port, and a USB COM port connection.
B5021 Ethernet Base & Ethernet Relay Stations
The B5021 Base Station offers an Ethernet Connection for users who want to forgo connecting directly to a Host computer and would prefer to attach to an Ethernet connection. The Ethernet Base Stations can be located on a local network or even on a remote network - anywhere there is a internet/network connection.
The B5021 Ethernet Relay Station can be converted to operate as an Ethernet TCP/IP Relay Station with a simple jumper change and firmware update. This Ethernet Relay Station setup gives the user the ultimate flexibility in locating and communicating with terminals - now you can use our RF Terminals in multiple locations simultaneously with your main location and existing software. Imagine the power of using the RF Terminals in real time anywhere in the world, just across town, or even in the next building; anywhere that has an Ethernet internet connection available can be setup as a Relay Point and talk to our RF Terminals with no software upgrade or modifications.
You can connect up to 16 Ethernet Relays in any combination of local LAN and/or remote LAN(s). The Ethernet Base needs to be connected to the computer running the host application by either serial or USB but the Ethernet Relays are all connected by Ethernet. This is vital for companies with multiple buildings, separate locations and sites that need transactions to be recorded and event driven tasks beyond the reach of a more traditional dedicated wired system.
Base Station Backward Compatibility
For users who have software written for the older Worth Data 70 or 700 Series RF Terminals, the B5011 & B5021 Base Stations maintain the same serial interface, so they will continue to work with your existing software without any changes. New programming will be required to support the new 15 Line LCD if your software doesn't already support it.
There is no programming on the terminal. All programming is on the host computer in the programming language of your choice. Your only requirement is to send commands out to the associated COM port on your computer -- either Serial or USB on the B5011 Base Station -- or via TCP/IP to the B5021 Ethernet Base Station. Any platform and any language can literally make the terminal sing. Whether you write simple serial command strings or you use our supplied .NET or Active X components, we make it easy for you. There's only one program to write and maintain.
No development package is necessary to buy. All you need is supplied with the purchase of a RF Terminal and Base Station. It's the perfect product for developers who wish to distribute systems to remote locations.
the RF Terminal
A user program does not run on the RF Terminal. Prompts & Commands are sent to through the Base Station to the RF Terminals. There are three levels of host computer programming support provided for the RF Terminal:
Low Level Programming strings sent to the serial COM port, or USB COM port, is the most basic method of programming which applies to any language and any platform which can read and write to a serial port. For Windows users there is a free DLL provided to simplify the serial commands, and we also provide the USB driver to talk to the B5011 base station when it is attached via USB. Click here for details on our simple Low Level Programming.
.NET support is also provided which provides the overall structure and all routines which when completed, result in a running application. It is a .NET assembly that is compatible with Visual Studio and any .NET language including Visual Basic, Visual C++®, C#, etc... Click here to download the .NET installation package.
ActiveX support is also provided which provides the overall structure and all routines which when completed, result in a running application. It is compatible with Visual Basic, Visual C++®, Delphi, and most other Windows 32 bit development platforms. Click here to download the PromptCOM ActiveX PDF programming guide . You can also download the latest ActiveX for the 7000 here.
TCP/IP support allows the operation of terminals across a TCP/IP network connection. This configuration requires a "client" computer and a "server" computer. It is compatible with Visual Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, and most other 32-bit development platforms. Click here to download the "PrompNET TCP/IP Active X PDF programming guide. Also, using the new B5021 Base Station, with the built-in Ethernet port, you can directly attach to any Ethernet connection in your building and eliminate the need for a redundant "client" computer - we provide the software tools to talk to the Base Station in this configuration.
Again, there is no programming necessary on the RF Terminal itself. All programming is on the host computer and can be in Visual Basic, Access, C, Basic, etc. Any platform and any language that can read/write to a serial port can be used.

While it is unlikely that anyone would have the ability to monitor the RF data you are transmitting, if you do need more extensive security of your data the 7000 RF Terminal system offers optional encryption of the RF data traffic between the Base Station and the terminals. We use a proprietary 32-bit passcode encryption method to encrypt all of the data that is transferred over the RF spectrum. You choose the passcode and enter it into both the base station and each terminal to complete this security setup.
KwikCount/RF for Excel
All 7000 RF Terminals include our KwikCount/RF add-in for Excel! This add-in gives you a simple, interactive program development tool using Excel; right out of the box - no programming knowledge needed! If you can use Excel, then you can use KwikCount/RF to develop interactive real-time applications which use an Excel data base - including inventory, shipping, and receiving applications! Many applications include an import/export feature for Excel - allowing you to export your application's data, use KwikCount/RF to update the data base on-line, and then import the updated data back into your application - all with NO programming knowledge required! This is perfect for inventory, shipping, receiving and even shelf price verification! Not only can you collect data, but you can display data from the Excel data base to help the user make decisions based on the data in the computer files.
Optional & Upgradable Handle
The 7000 RF Terminal system offers an interchangeable battery door and handle system. You can either use the standard battery door, standard on the LT71xx models, or you can order the LT71xxH models with the gun handle already installed. The handle is also available separately as an optional field upgrade to use in place of the battery door. You can upgrade a LT71xx with a H7000 handle at any time in the future. The H7000 handle is easy to install and includes a second battery in the handle to double the battery life.
Mobile Portable Printer Support
The LT71x2 & LT71x2H RF Terminals are all equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology and are capable of talking to any printer with Bluetooth wireless technology built in, including the Zebra® Mobile Portable Printer models RW 220, RW420, MZ 220, MZ 320, EM 220 & P4T, allowing you to easily print product/price labels, barcode labels, receipts or other tags. Communication and printing to any other brand of mobile printers that are equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology is very easy using the special menus built into our 71x2 RF Terminals.
In addition to the display prompts and error messages, the RF Terminal has the ability to audibly prompt and advise the operator with pre-recorded prompts and error advisories triggered by the host program. Voice messages are particularly helpful in poorly lit areas, cold environments, non-English speaking cultures, and keyless applications (faster scanning without having to refer to the display).
802.11 Wi-Fi vs. 7000 Series RF Terminals
802.11 Wi-Fi is a spread spectrum radio format that typically operates in the 2.4GHz band and is very popular around the world. However, it only has around 100-300ft range in most applications and requires extensive site surveys plus special wiring and locating of the access points to correctly cover any large area or building. Even the more powerful Wi-Fi 802.11n radios can only cover around 650ft (200m) at best. Our 900MHz 7000 Series RF Terminals use a very powerful 900MHz spread spectrum radio that can easily cover many thousands of square feet with a single base station, plus you can expand the coverage even further using relays - in an open area our range is over 3 miles! Our radio has 25 times the range of the very best Wi-Fi radios. It is very common for a customer to install just one B5011 Base Station in a corner of a large warehouse and still get complete coverage in the entire building. We feel that our 7000 series RF terminal is the best solution for any location that doesn't already have a working Wi-Fi based radio network covering the entire working area required. If you already have endured the expense of surveys, wiring and installing a working 802.11 Wi-Fi radio network in your location or you need use a terminal in a remote location then Worth offers the LT7802 Wi-Fi RF terminals
Extending Range with Relay Station
The B5011 Base Station can be converted to operate as a relay with a simple jumper change. Relay Stations give even greater coverage and can overcome steel structured wall limitations of separate rooms, buildings or to extend range in very large buildings. Relays are connected by 422 cable to the B5011 Base Station.
