Handheld Group, a manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, has unveiled new expansion pack features for its NAUTIZ X8 rugged PDA. The new functionalities are designed to make the NAUTIZ X8 even more versatile for field workers in a number of market segments, including forestry, surveying, construction, field services, warehouse projects, and logistics.
The three new expansion packs for the NAUTIZ X8 include:
- NAUTIZ X8 Long Range Bluetooth (LRBT) Expansion Pack, featuring a LRBT u-blox module for long-range communication up to 300 meters.
- NAUTIZ X8 Barcode Expansion Pack, featuring an imager module (Zebra SE4750SR) with an LED aimer.
- NAUTIZ X8 Basic Expansion Pack, an empty add-on cap for an extension of your choice. It also allows users to install custom accessories under the cap using the proprietary interface.
“The NAUTIZ X8 is the world’s best rugged handheld computer, with an outstanding screen and exceptional durability, connectivity, processing power, and battery life — without compromising ergonomics or design,” says Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. “These new expansions will make it even more versatile, customizable and attractive for field users in a number of industry segments. We take pride in always working with our partners and customers to understand their specific needs and create solutions they actually want and will benefit from.”
The new NAUTIZ X8 expansion packs will be available in September. All cap versions are designed to retain the NAUTIZ X8 IP67 classification.
