Synergix Ireland, the auto-ID and barcode division of Square One has been appointed by Casio as distributor of the Casio IT-9000. The IT-9000 handheld printer terminal, which is expected to be released in February 2012 is said to be ideally suited for operations that require on the spot printing, such as receipts for mobile retail transactions, receipts and tickets for public transportation, and the issuance of tickets for parking and traffic violations.
The device is an all-in-one handheld printer terminal equipped with a built-in thermal printer and near field communication (NFC) reader/writer designed for contactless smart cards and radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. Options include a C-MOS imager for scanning 1D and 2D symbologies, a magnetic card reader, 3G wireless WAN capable of high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), GPS capabilities, and a colour auto-focus digital camera.
The IT-9000 allows users to send images captured with its built-in auto-focus colour digital camera, data such as positional information determined using the GPS function and records of issued tickets and receipts to back office systems.
Designed with superior security in mind, the IT-9000 can be used securely for solutions where important information is handled. If the device is lost or stolen, the data it holds can be erased remotely via a command sent by an administrator over the wireless WAN network. The NFC reader/writer can be used to verify an operator's login credentials using a contactless smart card. Secure access module (SAM) slots are available on-board for use if even higher security is required.
Featuring a 9.4-centimeter (3.7-inch) VGA Blanview LCD with touch panel the IT-9000 delivers excellent visibility both indoors and outdoors yet consumes far less power than conventional LCDs. The device is compliant with IP54 dustproof and splash proof standards, and it can withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters, making it suitable for deployment in a wide variety of challenging environments.
Casio's IT-9000 series features a line-up of six models, all of which can be used in a wide variety of operations that require printing on the spot, including usage as a mobile point-of-sale (POS) terminal that can issue electricity, gas, or water meter reading slips, sales invoices and bills issued at a visit site, and receipts for customers onsite.
