Mobile handheld device

Offers more flexibility, greater benefits and catchy designs with the Android operating system

Following close on our item on using hand held devices getting a special mention at next years CiBIT (Bring your own device!) in Hannover we have news of one particular device!

ADLINK Technology has announced the IMX-2000, the first ever industrial mobile handheld device to use the Android 2.3 operating system. Combining high-performance RFID, barcode scanner and 3G/WLAN wireless transmission functions to satisfy diverse application requirements, the IMX-2000 can be applied in a wide range of industries. Applications include fully supported logistics management, transportation and factory automation. With an 800MHz computation capacity, as well as superior resistance to impacts, water, and dust, the IMX-2000 has the capacity to enhance productivity and significantly reduce costs.

"The IMX-2000 can easily be configured for a wide range of applications, including manufacturing, logistics and factory automation," says Stephen Huang, VP of ADLINK. "Combined with the concept of The Internet of Things (IOT), all the information or data required can be captured in real time and accessed wirelessly via this new technology to realize Industrial Mobile Computing (IMC) functionality in different areas. In the future, it can not only reduce limitations on managing and monitoring, but lower production costs while becoming a mainstream communication device."

Android operating system with more flexibility
The IMX-2000 adopts the Android 2.3 operating system to offer a qualified and user-friendly interface. In addition, all the data can be conveniently input directly by numeric keys into the Android system. To meet customer needs, an application programming interface (API) is provided for secondary development based on specific requirements.

Easy data access and reliable wireless communication capability
Designed with high-efficiency barcode scan processing capacity bundled with Reader Utility software, data saved under 1D or 2D barcode can be accessed easily. With integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GSM, GPS and AGPS, the IMX-2000 enhances the reliability of wireless communication.
