The 8590– Rugged, Vehicle Mount Computer


Vehicle Mount Computing With A Big Brain
Picking. Packing. Stock replenishment. Shipping. Inventory tracking.

It’s hard enough in a calm, controlled environment. The real world isn’t always like that. Workplaces get cold, hard, damp, and dirty. Your workforce never stops. Your vehicle mount computers shouldn’t either.

If you need full PC functionality with Windows® XP in a tough, user-friendly package, you need the 8580 / 8590 rugged, vehicle mount computer…

Full PC power

Most vehicle mount computers sacrifice brains for brawn. Not the 8580 and 8590.

These rugged vehicle mount computers run on Windows XP® Professional or XP® Embedded. They give you full PC

power where you need it most: on the front line. Which means you deliver intelligence where it’s needed and capture data non-stop. All shift long.

Rugged to the max

The 8580 and 8590 aren’t just powerful. They’re rugged. Both operate with the freezer option at temperatures between -22 ºF (-30ºC) to 144 ºF (+60ºC). Both boast tough-as-nails IP ratings -- they come in at IP66 -- so you can forget about dust or moisture stopping the shift.
And they both shrug off violent shock and vibration. So no more downtime. Or worker frustration. Just unchecked productivity.
The tech package

The 8525 G2 and the 8530 G2 are Microsoft Windows® based, so integration couldn’t be simpler and application development is a no-brainer. So when your business expands, the technology’s ready and waiting to expand with you.
Both the 8525 G2 and the 8530 G2 are jammed with technology including the XScale processor, WiFi, Bluetooth® and narrowband connectivity while a range of external ports allows you to connect to just about any kind of peripheral. These are no lightweights.

Natural Task Support™

The 8580 and 8590 give you options. Lots of them. Both can be operated via the touch screen, keyboard, or mouse.
And there are multiple key options (4, 10 or 25) so

you can customize according to your apps. Plus the ergonomic positioning of the keys is worker’s dream. It’s all part of our Natural Task Support™ philosophy - - and it’s changing the way mobile workers do their jobs.

Wireless wonders

The 8580 and 8590 integrate effortlessly with WLAN and rugged mobile devices. So your workers get real-time access to warehouse management tools. Which means data capture is as fast as it gets.

Unlimited Wired Connectivity

And if you want to hook up your peripherals, go for it. The 8580 and 8590 have two serial RS232, Ethernet and two USB host ports. So it’s more than ready for your bar code scanners, printers and RFID readers.

Supersize me

The display screens on the 8580 and the 8590 take you aback. The 8580 has a large 10.4” SVGA display which you can read in all lighting conditions. Including direct sunlight.
The 8590 goes even bigger. It has a high-res 12.1” (1024 x 768) screen. And it lets leading warehouse management apps run without adapting the user interface.
Bottom Line: these are smart machines that are as tough as they have to be, but as user-friendly as they ought to be.
