All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Our added value in your traceability project with our custom developed software: the choice of the terminal adapted to your use and each trade, with speed and efficiency constraints and the adaptation of our applications to their ergonomics and possibilities.

We sell these families of terminals in the exclusive framework of our developments and software licenses

Typical hardened scanning terminals

these terminals with integrated scanner / imager (commonly called "zapette") exist from all manufacturers, with various characteristics: with hardened touch screen of several dimensions, with or without physical keyboard, with cradle, in "gun" or "palm" mode (in the hand flat), tilted reading head, all under Android now, in Wifi mode and some with 4G in addition, light, heavy, close or remote reading....
We do the research for you according to your desired ergonomics, application, budget and usage environment. Scanning terminal in plam or gun {PNG}

Commercial, light industrial terminals

These mobile terminals are designed for standard and versatile use with elaborate ergonomics and communications while maintaining the advantages of ease of use, durability and price. Our applications find a better ground to develop its new functions for synchronous or asynchronous mobile applications developed.

Mobile terminals for industry
These professional laptops are semi-hardened to ultra-hardened: that is, depending on their specifications, can fall on the ground, take the rain, "dive" a little under water: >= IP64 in technical terms.
Most of them can exchange data via 3/4G or Wifi and Bluetooth and can be used as a phone and a digital assistant as well as a scanner.
One of the typical application is for transport : Geolocate your parcel depots and inform your customers on mobile

Hands-free mobile terminals and rings

Bar code terminals worn on the arm, wrist, for logistics, hands-free picking, with a finger pointer (ring)

Utility of hands-free mobile scanning terminals

fingertip scanning
almost free hands: scan at the tip of the index finger, terminal on the forearm and why not the voice?

The "hands-free" mobile scanning terminal provides speed, productivity and error reduction for order pickers who have a list of orders to prepare in a counted and record time. The terminal is constantly available to remind the operator of the next package to be loaded on the pallet and allows him to scan the barcode of the picked product with his fingertip and enter the quantity on the keyboard or select the batch of the picked product.

Adding and integrating applications to hands-free terminals
Of course the terminal itself has the elements of an embedded computer and allows communication with servers and databases, but it is necessary to add applications to respond to the process requested from the operator.

We can now add voice guidance and voice acknowledgements.

We can integrate these hands-free terminals into your projects in our custom applications.

The HandScanner HS7500 is available in 2 versions:

  • "Standard range" close: between 10 and 80 cm / 3.9 to 31.5 inch, for Manufacturing, Sales and Medical
  • "Mid-range" scans between 30 to 150 cm / 11.8 to 59-inch perfect solution for Transport & Logistics: stocks, docks.

BT rings can all fit on consumer Android smartphones or tablets.

Hardened tablets with integrated scanner

We have several ruggedized tablets with integrated scanner / imager : in 8" or 10".

  • Tablets under Android on which we are developing,
  • Tablets running Windows 10 IoT Enterprise Pro or Windows 10 Pro on which you can install most of your Windows 10 applications,
  • with standard or extended scope imager underneath, or standard imager on the side
  • multiple levels of hardness: 1.2m or 1.80m drops to concrete.
Tablets with integrated scanner Android or Windows 10
the scanner/imager control is integrated in the handle in order to have a free hand

Windows 10 IoT enterprise is the logical continuation of the Embedded (embedded) Windows family. This version is particularly suited to run efficiently in x86 environments that are not necessarily part of the PC family. As this version is x86 compatible, it can accommodate almost all current desktop applications (Desktop or Universal Desktop - UAP). In addition, it is capable of running old applications that were created decades ago. There are two versions of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, namely a LTS (Long Term Support) composed mainly of security patches (ours) and a version updated regularly that follows the development of Windows 10.

KIOSKS for checks

Graphical terminals , POS touch screen wall or integrated, with hands-free scanner barcode, Rfid under Windows / Android for workshops, stores and distribution: medical environment, information, price verification or access control

Kiosk type touch screen terminal for point of sale or workshop: delivers information and checks the price, interacts with the customer

Applications:

  • Self-service kiosks: feature information, price verification, concierges, POS (Point of Sales), SLED or lot number, images, videos, music and sounds, for consumer or operator, example: Module vérification prix, infos sur bornes tactiles interactives
  • "Web to store" offers with mobile applications that we know how to develop,
  • Authenticity verification,
  • Personal entry and exit, security control, access control,
  • M.E.S (Manufacturing Execution System), event, time, quality and work-in-process tracking.

Operating Systems and Kiosk Integration
Integration is done with a dedicated KX-Mobile application, for example this application used in a GSB: Module vérification prix, infos sur bornes tactiles interactives

Highly adaptable kiosks:

  • to scan barcodes (all fonts, configurable scanner) and display multimedia content such as text information, video, sounds and music (you can connect a headset or speaker on one of the USB ports)
    * link to databases: through the Wi-Fi connection, it can fetch information from database servers in relation to the barcodes, Rfid identifiers provided and display its information: DLUO, description, image, photo, video, soundtrack.

RFID Terminals

Overview of frequency ranges and standards:

First of all a table of standards, layers and frequency ranges to talk about the same in RFID: see table in portfolio.

Important note!

These terminals Application mobile pour fiabiliser, tracer, accélérer vos flux are to be tested on a case by case basis: because there is no "wedge" delivered with the terminal and depending on what will be requested in the application.

Low frequency mobile terminals

Frequency range: 125.5 and 134.2 KHz

Uses :
- identification of near metals
- trees, forestry
- animal tracking, veterinarians.

- NFC (Near Field Comm.: very close reading : 1cm): ISO 18092 , ISO 21481, (ISO15693, Mifare Classic and Ultralight)= read and written by Kal, ECMA (European Computer Manufacturer Association) 340 NFC IP-1, ECMA 352 NFC IP-2+, ISO/IEC 14443-A compatible, FeliCa - we won’t put a list below : because almost all Android terminals (except guns) we sell are equipped with them and are supported by our developments and software.
- HF ’classic’ (library use, industry: reading between 10 and 50 cm depending on the reader) : ISO15693
If you have tags and don’t know : send us a sample for qualification test.
