Honeywell LXE Tecton MX7CS

Optimized for your cold storage facility

The MX7CS rugged handheld computer is built for your freezer and cold storage applications. Designed with low-temperature batteries, specialized heaters, and conformal coating, the MX7CS unit adapts easily from the freezing temperatures of your cold-storage facility to warmer staging and dock areas – even in the hot summer months. This smooth, condensation-free transition will allow your operators to increase productivity. And they’ll appreciate the all-around functionality of the MX7CS computer: its light-weight design offers all-day comfort, while its backlit keys provide keyboard visibility in dark freezers.
