Rugged Mobility, Efficient Data Management and the Power of Palmâ„¢
The SPT 1842 of pen-notepad computers offers the most advanced Palm Poweredâ„¢ solution for your work force. This family of rugged mobile computers combines integrated scanning, sophisticated wireless connectivity and powerful processing capability with the Palm OSÂ® platform. With 1-D barcode data capture and wireless local area network (WLAN) or wireless wide area network (WWAN) communications, the SPT 1842 is a powerful productivity-enhancing tool, serving the multiple needs of today's growing mobile workforce.
Tackle Tough Environments
Tough enough for use in manufacturing and industrial environments, the SPT 1842 enables the Palm OS to perform practically anywhere. The rugged SPT 18XX housing is sealed to IP54 standards for protection against rain and dust, and withstands 4 ft./1.2 m drops to concrete. Symbol's state-of-the-art scan engine with bright, easy to see scan line, delivers premium scanning performance under virtually any lighting conditionâ€“even sunlight or bright artificial light. A high-contrast, anti-reflective liquid crystal display makes data easy to read in low lighting or outdoor conditions. Integrated WLAN or WWAN communication extends the reach of IT resources, enabling real-time information flow between the point of activity and your remote host system, making your business truly mobile.
Empower Your Work Force
The combination of rugged durability, integrated barcode scanning and wireless communication enables users in a host of industries to capture, compute and communicate data anytime, anywhere. As shipments are unloaded, warehouse management can easily record new inventory levels to networked host systems. Service professionals in hospitality can offer curbside check-in at hotels, and hospital physicians and caregivers can have the latest patient data at hand.
Law enforcement officers can scan vehicle registration or drivers' licenses to gather information immediately, and wireless WAN communication enables them to send and receive information from the point of activity. In retail, when coupled with a magnetic stripe reader and portable printer, the SPT 1842 becomes a portable point-of-sale device, and, for scan-intensive tasks, an attachable handle converts the SPT 1842 into an ergonomic pistol grip design.
