Symbol PDT 7542 Details
Power and Performance for Extreme Environments
The feature-rich PDT 7542 from Symbol Technologies thrives in the heat, cold and dust of even the harshest industrial environments. A pioneer in Symbol's line of products for extreme environments, the PDT 7542 is a lightweight handheld terminal with advanced barcode scanning data processing and communications features. Built for productivity and comfort in demanding environments, the versatile PDT 7542 links workers to data and to each other in transportation and logistics environments such as warehouses, docks, yards, and even on the road.
Designed for Extreme Environments
PDT 7542 meet the most stringent industrial standards and are sealed to IP64 specifications for protection against water and dust. The terminals are fully functional in temperatures ranging from -13º to 122ºF/-25º to 50ºC and can withstand multiple drops of 6ft./1.8 m to concrete.
As innovative as it is rugged, the PDT 7542 delivers the sophisticated ergonomic features customers need. Weighing only 19 oz./532 gm, the terminal is light enough for extended periods of use. The push-button keypad has color-coded keys to facilitate data entry, and the 1/8 CGA screen has a crystal-clear 240 x 160 pixel resolution and a generous 30 character by 20-line display. The backlit display is easily viewed – even in dimly lit areas. The innovative design includes a reverse grip and hand support that can be used in signature capture, important for proof of delivery and for tracking or tracing goods, parcels and packages.
Power and Performance for Large Jobs
The PDT 7542 Series delivers the power and performance required for large jobs. The integrated high-speed SE 2200 scan engine incorporates advanced scanning for 1-D and 2-D barcode data capture. The device reads barcoded shipping manifests and pallet contents at 15 times the speed of most other scan engines. The conveniently placed scan trigger is easy to turn on and off during single-handed use. The optional SE 4200 imager extends the functionality of the PDT 7542 by enabling the device to read matrix and Postal Codes and to capture, view and store images.
Formidable scanning jobs, complex programs and data-intensive tasks such as inventory tracking or materials management are perfect for the PDT 7542 . Within its sealed case are a 486-based AMD Elan SC400 microprocessor and a low-power 32-bit single chip/AT-based micro-controller that runs industry-standard MS-DOS or Windows CE applications. Up to 16 MB of RAM and flash memory assure flawless performance regardless of the job size.
Transmits Data Anytime, Anywhere
The PDT 7542 transmits data on the dock or on the road with batch processing or using wireless local area network (WLAN) or wireless wide area network (WWAN) communications. For maximum operating convenience, the high-capacity lithium ion battery operates for an 8-10-hour work shift and signals the operator when it is time to recharge. An optional free standing or vehicle-mounted cradle is available for battery charging and data transfer.
The PDT 7542 is backed by Symbol Technologies' worldwide service repair and support network. Symbol systems are critical to your business success in data-intensive, time-sensitive environments because our systems help you capture, access and manage information at the point of business activity.
