The Symbol MT2000 series, distributed in Australia by Peacock Bros , is the latest in the range of handheld mobile computers from Motorola, combining the intelligence of a mobile computer and the simplicity of a scanner.
The result is a flexible handheld terminal that facilitates the streamlining of many scan-intensive business processes, in a wide variety of industries that include:
- manufacturing plants
- retail establishments
- warehouses; and
There are two models in the MT2000 range, the MT2090 and the MT2070.
The MT2090 features integrated 802.11a/b/g for real-time direct application connectivity, and both models of handheld mobile computers offer integrated Bluetooth for a convenient cordless connection to a host device up to 91.44 m away.
The MT2000 Series can operate in real-time or batch mode, and is supplied with either a 1D laser scanner or 2D imager.
The 1D laser scanner offers a long range, able to capture even damaged and poor quality bar codes from as close as 2.54 cm to as far as 127 cm away.
The 2D imager provides the flexibility to capture 1D and 2D bar codes as well as signatures, images and video, delivering fast scan speeds on both.
Checkpoint EAS compatibility allows retail associates to scan and de-activate theft deterrent tags without the need for additional devices.
Shiftable alphanumeric keypad helps ensure easy data entry, regardless of whether applications require primarily numeric or text-based entry, or both.
The MT2000 range of handheld mobile computers are designed around the industry standard Microsoft .Net framework development environment, enabling easy creation of new applications and porting of existing batch and real-time applications developed for Motorola’s mobile computers and scanners.
The optional MCL Designer Software includes a built-in legacy application converter, and the MCL client is pre-loaded on the MT2000. A small license software fee is payable to use this software.
The MT2000 series has been tested to 1.8m in drop tests performed across the full operating temperature range, ensuring reliable performance.
The handheld mobile computers also experienced no degradation in performance after 250 tumbles in a rotating drum, which subjects the device to 500 consecutive 1m drops.
IP54 sealing provides dependable performance in spite of exposure to dusty environments or splashing liquid, such as a beverage spill.
The range is fully compatible with Motorola’s flagship mobile device management solution, Mobility Services Platform (MSP), dramatically reducing costs in day to day management.
MSP provides centralized control of all MT2000 handheld mobile computers, allowing it to remotely stage, provision, monitor and troubleshoot devices, regardless of where in the world they are located.
Motorola also offers support services for the MT2000 range with comprehensive coverage from the date of purchase.
