Casio releases DT-X8 ultra-tough terminal

Casio-Bild-3-DT-X8---ECasio UK has announced that it plans to release the DT-X8 series of industrial handheld terminals in Spring 2011. Both models in the DT-X8 series have been designed for increased toughness and durability. They can withstand a 3.0 metre drop and are resistant to dust and rain, making them perfect for applications in many different sectors – from demanding in-store environments, to the logistics and transportation industry, including work in high places in warehouses and outdoors.

The DT-X8 models are equipped with elastomer protection around the outer case, including the edges surrounding the LCD and the battery cover that are vulnerable to shock if dropped. With this shock-resistant design, the terminal is tough enough to withstand a drop from up to 3.0 metres. The DT-X8 is compliant with IP67 dust/splash-proof standards and can be operated in temperatures as low as -20ºC. Accordingly, the DT-X8 can operate in harsh conditions including dusty areas, all weather situations and low-temperature warehouses.

The DT-X8 models are easy to hold and operate, and the shape and feel of the keys are designed to facilitate error-free data entry – even when wearing gloves. Key backlights enable use in darker environments or at night. Scanning operation is easy with three scanner trigger keys, one in the centre and another on each side of the terminal.

Casio-Bild-1-DT-X8---EWith a Blanview® LCD, the DT-X8 models feature a clear colour display that is visible indoors and outdoors and boasts low power consumption. The product includes a host of features including IEEE 802.11b/g standard wireless LAN compatible with WPA2 security standards and Bluetooth® Version 2.0 (Class 2). In terms of scanning, the DT-X8-10E can scan 1D symbologies, while the DT-X8-20E can scan both 1D and 2D symbologies.
