Lightweight handhelds offer sophisticated solutions for rough conditions.

DAP Technologies, Quebec City, Canada, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computing solutions and services, recently expanded its Microflex product range by launching three new handheld computers: the Microflex CE3240, Microflex CE5000X and Microflex 2240. These mobile units are highly reliable, even under rugged or harsh environmental conditions. They are ideal for a variety of mobile computing applications in many field service sectors, including: utilities; energy; transportation and logistics; emergency services; law and parking enforcement; civil engineering; and construction. All units are offered as IP67, and are MIL-STD-810F approved.

Microflex CE3240: A small, flexible and functional multi-modular handheld
Weighing one pound, the Microflex CE3240 provides reliability and outstanding functionality at the industry's lowest total cost of ownership. An ideal tool for any demanding mobile application, it is equipped with an Intel XScale PXA 255 400 MHz processor and runs the latest Windows CE 5.0 operating system from Microsoft. Supporting optional 2D scanning, the Microflex CE3240 also offers wireless connectivity options including GPRS and CDMA 1X RTT WWAN, 802.11b WLAN.

The multi-modular unit is designed so users can easily add wireless, GPS, 2D imager bar code reader and RFID reader program - in almost any combination. Having the industry's first multiple SDIO slot support and one full PCMCIA slot, the Microflex CE3240 offers unrivalled flexibility.

Microflex CE5000X: GPS, GPRS - and colour photography
The innovative Microflex CE5000X integrates a colour 1.3 mega pixel camera and flash into a traditional industrial mobile unit, eliminating the need for additional camera equipment.

Plus, the unit offers a GPS and GPRS system, delivering a real-time, integrated mobile computing solution. It is the only 3-in-1 product of its kind on the market today. The camera includes software drivers and API, allowing developers to easily implement colour image capture into their applications. The unit supports GPRS wireless WAN or 802.11b WLAN, enabling real-time data communications.

Microflex 2240: Provides portability, data security and efficiency
Weighing only 500 grams, the Microflex 2240 runs Windows Mobile 2003, allowing users to view documents such as Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel in their original formats. The unit runs all the applications including calendar, E-mail and Pocket versions of Word and Excel.

Two user-accessible Compact Flash slots provide memory expansion capabilities to support technologies including Global Positioning System (GPS), Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and the AA Battery PowerBoot Module. Optional modules add even more versatility: the Extended CF-Cap provides room for large Compact Flash cards. Also available are a 1D or 2D scanner and colour camera (1.3 pixels).
