LXE launches rugged handheld computer

LXE is targeting supply chain applications with its rugged handheld computer, Tecton.

It has a removable handle with two-finger trigger for scan-intensive picking, and can read bar codes from four inches to 40 feet, facilitating operations from receiving to full pallet put-aways with the same version of the computer.

The Tecton comes with with LXE’s ToughTalk voice technology as well as a scan vibration signal that can be used to verify successful scans.

Keypads are protected against airborne and spilled chemical agents, and electrical components are secured to circuit boards to better withstand drops and shocks. A cold-storage configuration includes touch screen and scan window defrosters, and a cold-tolerant backup power source that holds a charge longer in cold environments of some -30˚C.
