High-level shock resistance

Achieves a high level of drop resistance (to a concrete surface from 1.5m) to meet the demands of actual operation using the technology we’ve acquired as a pioneer in barcode Hand-held terminals.

Superior environmental resistance

Achieves an IEC international standard protection rating of IP54 (equivalent to the JIS Splash Proof rating), which keeps dust and water from entering.
