Datalogic Introduces Mobile Computer for Healthcare
Datalogic, a world leader in automated data capture, has released a handheld mobile computer designed specifically for the healthcare industry. The Datalogic Memor X3 Healthcare (HC) features a durable enclosure made from chemical-resistant plastic, which protects the computer from harsh disinfectants. The Memor X3 HC is based on the standard Memor X3 model – known for its advanced 2D imaging capabilities.
The Memor X3 HC can be safely disinfected on a daily basis, ensuring that a subsequent user isn’t exposed to infection or cross-contamination. Along with its resistance to cleaning chemicals, the Memor X3 HC is IP54 compliant (dust / splash water) and can survive a drop of 1.2 metres. The Memor X3 HC’s ergonomic design makes it easy to hold in one hand.
The Memor X3 HC is packed with the following features:-
- Advanced 2D area imaging technology.
- Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 Pro Operating System (OS).
- Proprietary ‘Green Spot’ technology for good-read feedback.
- Wi-Fi (2.4GHz & 5.2 GHz bands) and Bluetooth connectivity.
- XScale PXA 310 @ 806 MHz processor, along with 256MB RAM and 512MB flash memory.
- 2.4 inch QVGA colour touchscreen display.
- Rechargeable 3.7-volt, 2300-mAh Lithium-ion battery.
- Licensed device management software (Wavelink Avalanche) is pre-installed.
Barcode Scanning Goes Green
Barcode Dynamics is proud to announce that it’s taking orders for the new Honeywell Xenon 1902g-bf (battery-free) handheld barcode scanner. The Honeywell Xenon 1902g-bf is an eco-friendly, wireless scanner powered by super-capacitors - rather than lithium-ion batteries. The environmental implications of this innovative technology are enormous, as lithium-ion batteries are difficult to recycle.
The Honeywell Xenon 1902g-bf “is capable of scanning over 450 barcodes on a single charge, and can be recharged in less than 60 seconds via a powered USB port.” It also features low-energy Bluetooth technology with a general range of 10 metres, and a data rate of 130 Kbps. An added advantage of the Xenon 1902g-bf is that it’s lighter than many traditional handheld scanners – leading to greater user comfort and increased productivity. Like other Xenon handheld scanners, the Xenon 1902g scans both 1D (UPC / EAN) and 2D barcodes.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are two of the hottest concepts in the world of technology at the moment. Both concepts have captured the popular imagination - promising a world of robots, self-driving cars and thinking computers. So what are AI and machine learning?
Going 3D - The Future of Barcodes
State-of-the-art 3D barcodes are set to revolutionise the pharmaceutical industry and play an important role in the fight against counterfeit goods. British company Sofmat – in collaboration with the University of Bradford – has created a 3D barcode prototype which it hopes to commercialise in the foreseeable future. Sofmat’s 3D barcode technology is designed to protect and authenticate valuable, mass-produced products such as pharmaceuticals, mobile phones, sunglasses and watches. Manufacturers are excited by the technology, as it’s extremely difficult to create or copy a 3D barcode.
Aruba Embraces IoT
Aruba, a world-leader in wireless network technology, has made the Internet of Things (IoT) a major priority for 2017 and beyond. The Internet of Things (IoT) - a concept which focuses on connecting physical devices to the Internet – has become one of the hottest trends in the world of technology. Aruba has developed a comprehensive suite of enterprise-grade products to take advantage of IoT and its endless possibilities.
