Datalogic - Skorpio X3

The latest generation of Skorpio mobile computer with large touch screen, fast dual-processor and range of model options to suit your application.

Outsanding User Interface

Equipped with the largest high-visibility 3.2-inch colour graphic display with touch screen the Skorpio X3 mobile computer helps users work more efficiently. Three different keyboards – the 50-key alphanumeric keypad, the 38-key functional keypad and the 28-key numeric keypad – allow data to be input very quickly. Choose either the Microsoft Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 or Windows CE 6.0 Operating System.

Ergonomic and Reliable

This rugged mobile computer is particularly suitable for mobile commerce solutions in the retail environment both in store and stock rooms. With the best ergonomics on the market, the Skorpio X3 mobile computer reduces operator fatigue with no compromise in terms of reliability and robustness, resisting harsh environments, multiple drops, strong shocks and repetitive tumbles. The pistol grip model has the most durable and comfortable handle in the industry. Its compact size and light weight combine to offer excellent balance and superior handling.

Wireless Communication

The Skorpio X3 mobile computer features wireless communication with Bluetooth EDR and Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 a/b/g) to enable fast transactions and complete interaction with information systems including the newest RF security protocols such as WPA and WPA2. The Skorpio is compatible with Cisco Compatible Extensions CCX v4 certification providing seamless integration with the Cisco WLAN infrastructure.

Green Spot Technology Ensures Success

Skorpio X3 mobile computers includes the Datalogic Green Spot technology for good-read feedback. This technology projects a green spot of light directly on the barcode, notifying the user that a successful ‘read’ has occurred. Both the laser scanner (for 1D barcodes) and imager (2D barcodes) provide an inclined scan engine so that the display can be viewed while reading barcodes. There is no need for the user to turn the wrist in order to scan, thus making it easier to aim and faster to read.
