Opticon H22: A brilliant new enterprise-class multifunctional Windows Mobile bar code scanner and smartphone
“If you liked the H21, you would love the H22,” says Stef du Plessis from Osiris Technical Systems. The H22 uses the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5.3 platform, providing the latest technology for mobile applications. Users will be able to use functions and enterprise applications at any time - regardless of the location. The H22 is available with either an alphanumeric layout or a complete Qwerty keypad.
The sharp 3.7-inch VGA resolution colour display with touch-screen is among the largest screens available for mobile terminals. It provides users with an extremely user-friendly interface for any fieldworker application.
The 3.2MP colour camera with auto focus and flashlight adds visual information to any issue. Besides linear bar codes, the H22-2D model also reads 2D and stacked codes, both from traditional media (labels, etc) as well as from the screens of other mobile devices.
Need an RFID reader? High-frequency RFID is available as an option on the H22.
The mobile terminal scans in signatures and is able to produce a photographic record of an event or issue observed - vital functions for a successful field-based solution. As a result, the device can be integrated seamlessly into applications and complex business processes. It is also particularly well suited for a variety of applications, not just logistics and courier services, field service and field sales, but also facility management and security services and a myriad other applications.
The built-in A-GPS module (Assisted Global Positioning System) ensures simple and extremely fast detection of the current location and thus accelerated positioning and navigation. A-GPS uses normal GPS signals in conjunction with cellphone signals to provide location information where GPS signals can't reach. With a rugged, waterproof and dustproof housing, the H22 can withstand multiple drops onto concrete from 1.5 metres, as well as adverse environmental conditions with its IP 65- (water- and dustproof) compliant design.
Connectivity via a USB cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth 2.1 and IrDA 1.3 allows for data exchange and interfacing with mobile printers and other devices. The H22 can also log on to any WiFi network available via wireless LAN to connect to the local ERP system or cloud. With the WLAN and microphone support, the H22 can be used for voice over IP phone calls.
A dedicated charging cradle with USB communication, as well as an optional pistol grip, rounds off the set of features the H22 offers. The H22 is available now at an excellent introductory price. Detailed information about the H22 is available from Osiris Technical Systems: 0861 674 747.
