LXE has introduced the Marathon field computer, a mobile computer that's smaller than a laptop but features a bigger screen and more computing power than a PDA. The new device is designed to offer multiple data-capture and connectivity options for mobile workers.
The Marathon computer fills a void for a fully rugged, PC-based experience with a balance of screen size and ergonomics. The device, which weighs less than a kilogram, is powered by an Intel Atom processor that runs the full Windows 7 or Windows XP operating system. It combines multiple built in data-entry options, including a 7-inch outdoor-visible touch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, an integrated fingerprint reader that doubles as a mouse, and a high-resolution color camera.
The unit's available desk and vehicle SmartDock cradles allow one-handed undocking and user-friendly peripheral interfaces. Bolt-on accessories include a mag stripe reader, 2D imager, and extended life batteries for 8- and 12-hour continuous operation, all of which attach securely to the unit while maintaining the overall IP-65 rating for protection against dust and water.
