Running the Android operating system, new offering provides flexibility, superior benefits and catchy designs
ADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), a leading manufacturer of industrial computing products, announced the IMX-2000, the first ever industrial mobile handheld device utilizing the Android 2.3 operating system. Combining high-performance RFID, barcode scanner and 3G/WLAN wireless transmission functions to satisfy diverse application requirements, the IMX-2000 can be applied in a wide range of industries. Applications include fully supported logistics management, transportation and factory automation. With an 800MHz computation capacity, as well as superior resistance to impact, water and dust, the IMX-2000 has the capacity to enhance productivity and significantly reduce costs.
"The IMX-2000 can easily be configured for a wide range of applications, including manufacturing, logistics and factory automation," says Stephen Huang, VP of ADLINK. "Combined with the concept of The Internet of Things (IOT), all the information or data required can be captured in real time and accessed wirelessly via this new technology to realize Industrial Mobile Computing (IMC) functionality in different areas. In the future, it can not only reduce limitations on managing and monitoring, but lower production costs while becoming a mainstream communication device."
Android operating system with more flexibility
The IMX-2000 adopts the Android 2.3 operating system to offer a qualified and user-friendly interface. In addition, all data can be conveniently entered directly by numeric keys into the Android system. To meet customer needs, an application programming interface (API) is provided for secondary development based on specific requirements.
Easy data access and reliable wireless communication capability
Designed with high-efficiency barcode scan processing capacity bundled with Reader Utility software, data saved under 1D or 2D barcode can be accessed easily. With integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GSM, GPS and AGPS, the IMX-2000 enhances the reliability of wireless communication.
Rugged design brings protection
Along with the robust design, the IMX-0200 passes IP65 and 1.5m drop tests to ensure continuous operation after being inadvertently dropped, and provides highly-efficient operation even in extreme environments.
Optimize application configuration
With a 3.5” resistor-type touch panel, the IMX-2000 is well proven to be readable in sunlight for outdoor purposes. Equipped with a 5M pixel back camera, the IMX-2000 supports wireless broadband for real-time video communication and surveillance. Also, the memory is expandable via microSD supporting SDHC up to 32GB. Embedded with the rechargeable Lithium battery with 3900mAh, the IMX-2000 can provide long-term operation. A charging cradle is also provided along with the IMX-2000 for added convenience.
