LXE Inc. introduces the HX3 wireless data-collection computer for warehouse applications. This new unit, which uses voice recognition as the primary form of data input, is certified to work with a range of voice applications. In conjunction with the release, voice-based technology provider Voxware has announced its support of the new terminal, which can be used to run Voxware voice applications.
The HX3 uses LXE's ToughTalk technology for voice-recognition logistics applications. ToughTalk combines LXE's rugged system design, advanced audio circuitry, and noise-canceling techniques. This open-system, nonproprietary device also accommodates multiple options for data input in addition to voice, including bar-code scanning and keyboard entry. Bar-code capture options include a laser ring-scanner and a two-dimensional imager ring-scanner. These options allow facilities to use the HX3 to run voice logistics applications while retaining the flexibility to scan bar codes when necessary.
The new HX3 terminal uses an 802.11b/g WLAN radio, which provides superior speed and security, and is protected by a magnesium bezel designed to survive harsh conditions. In cold environments, for example, it's tested to cold-start down to minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit and to operate in freezers down to minus 40 degrees. Although built to be rugged, this computer is still light, compact, and ergonomic.
The simple, programmable eyes-free keyboard allows operators to accomplish the most common tasks faster. The HX3 computer's standard Bluetooth 2.0+EDR radio enables the use of wireless scanners and headsets. Three bright LEDs also offer simple, at-aglance status checks.
