Casio DT-X200 series Handheld Terminals can read 2D matrix codes from a distance of up to 20 meters
Casio announced today the release of the DT-X200 series of grip-type handheld terminals with built-in scanner. Made especially for the logistics industry, transportation industry, retail industry and other such sectors, the models in this new series feature improved processing speed and advanced scanning capabilities. All models in the DT-X200 series are capable of high-speed processing thanks to their Marvell PXA320 806MHz CPU, an upgrade from the Marvell PXA320 624MHz CPU used in the DT-X8 series. Likewise, Casio equipped the new DT-X200 terminals with 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM, twice the amount of internal memory and storage as the DT-X8 series.
The DT-X200-10E/11E models feature high-speed barcode reading and can also scan barcodes that are normally difficult to read. The DT-X200-20E/21E models can scan hard-to-read barcodes and two-dimensional (2D) codes, and are also equipped with a global shutter for effectively compensating for any shaking of the hand, thereby ensuring more dependable scanning. Meanwhile the DT-X200-41E is capable of reading barcodes and 2D matrix codes from a distance of up to 20 meters. The DT-X200-11E/21E/41E models are equipped with a near field communication (NFC) reader and writer, allowing them to interact with 13.56 MHz radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and contactless smart cards such as MIFARE.
The new models come with Bluetooth Version 2.1 (Class 2) preinstalled, and are compatible with four different wireless LAN standards (IEEE802.11a/b/g/n), making them ideal for use in a wide range of infrastructure settings. Capable of withstanding a drop of three meters, the models in the DT-X200 series are designed to be tough, incorporating an elastomer resin protector to provide excellent shock resistance. All of the models comply with the IP67 standard for dust and water proof, and can be operated in freezing temperatures down to minus 20 degrees Celsius.
