Psion Teklogix, which provides solutions for mobile computing, wireless data collection, imaging and RFID, has launched its 8530 Vehicle-Mount Computer. Based on the Psion Teklogix 8525, the new 8530 delivers the same connectivity and expansion capabilities, but with a large, 10.4-inch display. This large screen enables users to take advantage of the on- screen virtual keyboard, offering enhanced functionality in certain applications. The new large display is readable in sunlight and can be used with the 8525 peripherals and accessories. The unit is suitable for use in the transportation, food and other industries that demand applications with expanded graphical interface capabilities.
The 8530 is based on Psion Teklogix's Advanced Intel XScale/CE .Net platform. A separate full keyboard is available as an option. Built for use in rugged environments, such as warehouses, ports, manufacturing operations and yards, the computer provides users with the maximum amount of uptime and productivity. With an IP66 rating, the 8530 is protected against dust and sprays of water at temperatures as low as -4 degrees F (-20 C). The 8530 can also withstand the substantial shock and vibration transferred from vehicles working in rugged indoor and outdoor applications.
