The PT600 is an ergonomic, rugged, and lightweight hand held terminal. It weighs only (245 g) and withstands 4-feet drops to concrete floor. Memory up to 4.5 MB makes it suitable for demanding applications which require large programs and data files, meeting requirements for couriers, retail, asset tracking, warehouse management, and many more.
Laser scanning options include standard, high density (HD) for reading ultra fine barcode labels, and high visibility (HV) for reading barcode under direct sun light. There is also an optional configuration with a built-in wand. Ideal for low volume or budget-sensitive applications.
User friendly design The high resolution, backlit LCD display offers a choice of 8x16 or 4x12 text mode, wich supports international character sets. A 100x65 pixels graphic mode is also supported. The 26-key rubber keypad and a conveniently placed scanner trigger allow one-handed operation.
Sophisticated power management automatically activates standby and shut-off modes to conserve the battery power. A 30-minute low battery warning provides users ample time to recharge the battery.
A DOS compatible operating system enables system integrators to develop programs using industry standard C compilers. Unitech offers, free of charge, a Windows library for C, C++, Visual Basic, Visual FoxPro, and Delphi. This powerful library enables system integrators to easily modify existing host applications to interface with the PT600.
Communications An RS232 port allows data transfer to and from the terminal. It can also be used to send information to a portable printer. An optional communications cradle includes a spare battery charger and an additional RS485 port, which provides networking of up to 32 units.
An infrared interface and soft-contact charging pads ensure durability and ease-of-placement in the cradle. There is also an optional internal modem.
Software Tools and Development The PT600 comes with PT Comm Manager, a Windows-based, communication program. The user interface supports drag-and-drop and will automatically detect the portable. Also included is JobGen Lite, a program generator that lets users create an application by visually drawing a flow chart.
FormCaching, an on-board, menu-based interface allows users to design simple applications. It is only a matter of defining prompts, fields, separators and their attributes. And for those who need more control and data processing power, JobGen Plus is the right tool. It requires no programming experience and includes on-screen simulation that saves valuable debugging time.
