LXE Tecton CS Rugged Handheld Computer

Overview of Honeywell Tecton CS Rugged Handheld Computer

  • SPEED PXA320 806MHz processor enhances productivity & contributes to ROI
  • FLEXIBILITY Fits your needs as handheld, vehicle-mount, with 55 or 32 key backlit keypads and ToughTalk™
  • STRENGTH IP 65-rated with up to 1.8 metres drop to concrete and operates down to -30°

Light enough for scan-intensive picking, yet able to operate in extremely cold environments. LXE’s Tecton™CS rugged handheld computer, the successor to our MX7CS, takes our heritage of cold chain computing leadership and turbocharges it with a fast PXA 320 processor at 806 MHz running Windows Embedded Compact (Win CE 6.0) or Windows Embedded Handheld (Win Mobile 6.5). A shift in a cold environment is demanding – make it more productive with a handheld purpose-built to get more done in the cold. The Tecton™CS provides enhanced performance without sacrificing any of the field-proven features you trust. Designed with low-temperature batteries, conformal coating and specialised heated screens, the Tecton™CS moves from the freezer to the dock and back again condensation-free – even in the hot summer months. Backlit keys and brilliant display aid visibility in dark corners. And the Tecton™CS never needs a desiccant pack or heated boot battery changeout – maximising your productivity all year round. Users can customise the Tecton™CS to fit their users and process, with complete backward compatibility to our MX7CS accessory portfolio. It’s the foundation of your supply chain, but it moves as fast
