Retailers are becoming increasingly demanding when it comes to their optimum data capture mobile computer of choice. On the one hand they want a device that is reliable and user friendly, whilst on the other, they want a unit that is extremely light and compact whilst also being rugged enough for use in the most demanding store or warehouse environments. Well, the good news is there is a mobile computer that precisely fits all these criteria. And here it is; LXEs new MX8 compact, rugged handheld computer.
The MX8 measures just 19 centimetres and, weighing in at only 377 grams with scanner, battery and radio card, it really is very light indeed. The terminal is also designed to be highly ergonomic. As you can see, the back fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. Also, take a look at its easy-to-use keyboard. I was using the keyboard earlier and it really does feel very smooth and is extremely easy to operate. Indeed, the MX8 has been especially engineered for all-day comfort, even during long periods of use. Another key feature of the MX8 is its pistol grip, which can be simply snapped on to the unit; like this.
It may be gentle on the operator, but the MX8 has also been designed to withstand the rigours of day-to-day use. LXE has carefully selected plastics able to absorb particularly strong impacts, and the MX8s solid state, industrialised electronics are designed to resist high levels of shock and vibration. Even its display and keyboard have been fully ruggedised. Let me tell you, these details really do make a difference.
The MX8 is suitable for a wide range of data-collection tasks. You can take the MX8 computer wherever you need it; from the rough environment of a scan-intensive warehouse to the temperate climate of the retail storefront. Wherever its used, the lightweight MX8 computer feels right at home.
On the more technical side, the MX8 offers standard range, 1D and 2D bar code support, and each successful scan is confirmed by both a beep and vibration; ideal for noisy environments. MX8 is configured with a Windows CE 5.0 520 Megahertz processor, and also comes fully equipped with Wireless LAN radio for secure mobile connectivity, and the very latest in Bluetooth technology. In addition, the MX8 is also combined with LXEs Spire antenna solution for improved mobile communications.
MX8 has also been purposefully engineered as a voice unit, and comes ready configured with LXEs ToughTalk voice recognition technology, combining LXEs ruggedised system design, advanced audio circuitry and noise-cancelling techniques. Indeed, with the MX8, the operator can run voice logistics applications and traditional barcode scanning applications all on the same unit. The MX8 also comes with built-in customer service. For a small extra cost per unit, LXEs ServicePass Complete service ensures the MX8 is covered against all physical damage. In fact, for the price of a one-year cover plan, LXE will service the unit for a full three-year period. Well, you cant get a fairer deal than that.
So, if your business is looking for a high-quality, extremely rugged, user-friendly, ergonomic and incidentally, highly affordable mobile handheld data collection terminal, it is well worth taking a closer look at this highly convincing new offering from LXE.
