Motorola MT2000 Series Handheld Mobile Computer

Motorola MT2000 Series Handheld Mobile Computer Features

THE INTELLIGENCE OF A MOBILE COMPUTER AND THE SIMPLICITY OF A SCANNERThe MT2000 Series represents another industry first from Motorola — the marriage of the simplicity of a scanner with the brainpower of a mobile computer and an ultra-ergonomic gun-style form factor. The result is a handheld mobile terminal, a highly flexible device capable of streamlining many scan-intensive business processes in a wide variety of industries — from the front to back door in manufacturing plants, retail establishments, warehouses, hospitals and more. The easy-to-use affordable mobile terminal offers a unique hybrid design, able to function as both a scanner and a mobile computer throughout the business day. The MT2000 Series can be utilized right out of the box as a scanner — either tethered to a point of sale (POS), laptop or other computing system — or as a standalone wireless mobile computer capable of enabling inventory and other scan-intensive applications anywhere in the enterprise.FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT MODES — WIRELESS, CORDLESS, CORDED AND BATCHTwo models provide the flexibility to meet a wide variety of business needs — the MT2090 and the MT2070. The MT2090 offers integrated 802.11a/b/g for real-time direct application connectivity anywhere in your environment, ideal for put-away and picking in the retail backroom and warehouse aisles to material tracking, quality control and error-proofing on the manufacturing floor. Both models offer integrated Bluetooth® for a convenient cordless connection to a host device up to 300 feet (91.44 m) away — such as a Point-of-Sale (POS) or workstation. The MT2000 Series can operate in real-time or batch mode, increasing application flexibility. And regardless of whether the device is connected to your wireless LAN or to a host device, support for the latest wireless security protocols keeps your data safe — and helps ensure compliance with PCI and other government regulations.FEATURESComprehensive connectivity options — including wireless, cordless and corded802.11a/b/g connectivity provides complete wireless freedom throughout your facility; Bluetooth® enables wireless connectivity as far as 300 feet (91.44 m) away from a Bluetooth-enabled host device; USB and RS-232 provides a flexible corded connection to host devicesComprehensive data capture options — 1D, 2D and images Eliminates the need to purchase multiple devices to capture different types of data — today and in the futureSuperior 1D laser scanning technologyFirst time rapid capture of even damaged and poor quality bar codes for all 1D codes over a large working range — from 1 in./2.54 cm to as far as 192 in./487.68 cmA new standard for 2D imagingAggressive performance on 1D and 2D bar codes plus the ability to capture signatures, still photos and video; omnidirectional 1D and 2D bar code scanning improves productivity by eliminating the need to align scanner and bar codeWindows CE 5.0 operating systemEasy to scale and highly reliable industry-standard open architecturePre-loaded MCL clientProvides the platform independence required to easily connect to legacy applications as well as develop new onesForward-scanning pistol gripEasy-to-grip well-balanced design; reduces fatigue in scan-intensive environments for full shift comfortRugged designA 6 ft./1.8 m drop specification plus a tumble specification of 500 3.2 ft./1 m drops (250 tumbles) and IP54 sealing combine to help ensure reliable operation in spite of everyday drops, bumps and exposure to dust and liquidsGovernment grade security with Motorola MAX SecureFIPS 140-2 certification enables compliance with the most stringent industry security regulations, including HIPAA, PCI and requirements for sensitive government applications*Compatible with Motorola’s Mobility Services Platform (MSP)Provides complete centralized management capabilities, including the ability to stage, provision, monitor and troubleshoot all MT2090 devices from a single remote location; dramatically simplifies and reduces the time and cost of day-to-day device managementCOMPREHENSIVE DATA CAPTUREThe MT2000 Series is loaded with advanced data capture capabilities. Choose the scan engine that best meets your bar code scanning requirements — a 1D laser scanner or 2D imager, both delivering Motorola’s signature performance. The 1D laser scanner offers an extraordinary range, able to capture even damaged and poor quality bar codes from as close as one inch/2.54 cm to as far as 192 inches/487.68 cm away. The industry-leading 2D imager provides the flexibility to capture 1D and 2D bar codes as well as signatures, images and video. In addition, the world-class 2D imager re-sets the bar for imaging technology, providing extraordinary scan speeds on both 1D and 2D bar codes — eliminating the need for businesses to sacrifice scanning performance for 2D capability.INDUSTRY-LEADING ERGONOMICSThe MT2000 Series exemplifies Motorola’s expertise in industrial design. The handle-forward design balances easily in the hand and combines with a gun form factor, bringing all day comfort to even the most scan-intensive applications. The shiftable alphanumeric keypad helps ensure easy data entry — regardless of whether your applications require primarily numeric or text-based entry — or both. And soft keys enable the completion of a wide range of actions with the single press of a button.EXTENSIVE APPLICATION FLEXIBILITYThe industry standard Microsoft® .Net Framework development environment enables the easy creation of new applications. In addition, porting existing batch and real-time applications developed for Motorola’s mobile computers and scanners, such as the Phaser, is virtually effortless — the new MCL Designer Software (optional) includes a built-in legacy application converter, and the MCL client is pre-loaded on the MT2000 to easily port new applications. The result is a cost-effective migration path that allows enterprises to upgrade to the latest mobile device technology to further improve workflow automation and employee productivity — while preserving existing application investments.MOTOROLA’S SIGNATURE RUGGED DESIGN FOR MAXIMUM RELIABILITYThis entry level value-priced mobile terminal offers the same drop specification as Motorola’s high-end rugged devices — a 6 ft./1.8 m drop test performed across the entire operating temperature range. You get reliable performance whether the device is dropped at room temperature on carpet or tile — or out on the loading dock and in outdoor shopping areas in extreme winter cold or summer heat. While the drop specification defines the maximum survivable impact height, the tumble test defines endurance — the MT2000 Series experienced no degradation in performance after 250 tumbles in a rotating drum, which subjects the device to 500 consecutive 3.2 ft./1 m drops. And IP54 sealing provides dependable operation in spite of exposure to dusty environments or splashing liquid, such as a beverage spill.PROTECT YOUR DATA WITH GOVERNMENT GRADE SECURITYNative FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification* brings government grade security to businesses and government agencies alike, providing easy and cost-effective compliance with HIPAA, PCI and other industry security regulations.A RAPID RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI) — AND A LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)With the MT2000 Series, you can count on an exceptional ROI and TCO. The multi-function hybrid device eliminates the need to purchase separate bar code scanners and mobile computers, greatly reducing capital and operational costs. Motorola’s flagship mobile device management solution, Mobility Services Platform (MSP), minimizes the most expensive aspect of any mobility solution — day-to-day management of mobile devices. MSP provides extraordinary centralized control, allowing IT to remotely stage, provision, monitor and troubleshoot devices — regardless of where in the world they are located. And since even the most rugged devices need a support plan, Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage sets the standard for post-deployment support by including normal wear and tear as well as accidental damage to internal and external components. Employee uptime is protected while unforeseen repair expenses are reduced.
