LXE is offering the Tecton handheld computer, targeting supply chain applications. The successor to LXE’s MX7 handheld, the IP-65-rated Tecton handheld computer accelerates real-time data capture with a PXA 320 806-megahertz processor running Windows Mobile 6.5 or Windows CE 6.0.

“There are some so-called warehouse handhelds that were not specifically designed for warehouse applications, and others that compromise in terms of ergonomics or processing power,” said Steve Newell, LXE vice-president and general manager. “The Tecton is the first device in the category to address all the challenges of maximizing supply chain productivity—it’s purpose-built for the warehouse.”

Lightweight and well-balanced in the user’s hand, and with sleek design for an industrial tool, the Tecton handheld delivers enhanced performance across an array of supply chain tasks. The unit’s multi-range scanning capabilities enable bar-code reads from four inches to 40 feet, so operators can perform warehouse moves ranging from receiving to full pallet put-aways with the same version of the computer. Scan-intensive picking can be enabled with the Tecton’s available easy-grip removable handle with two-finger trigger, and every Tecton computer comes with LXE’s ToughTalk technology for voice-driven processes. The device also features a scan vibration signal that can be used to verify successful scans in loud warehouses, and multiple built-in data-entry options.

Keypads protect against airborne and spilled chemical agents, and electrical components are secured to circuit boards to better withstand drops and shocks. An optional cold-storage configuration includes programmable touchscreen and scan window defrosters, and a cold-tolerant backup power source holds a charge longer in environments as low as –30° C.

“The Tecton handheld performs well in so many tasks because it’s light enough for scan-intensive picking, yet able to take a beating,” said Newell.

LXE, a division of EMS Technologies (NASDAQ: ELMG), manufactures vehicle-mounted, handheld, and wearable mobile computers. Access for more information.
