Ruggedness, ergonomics and special features combine to make the New Kyman™ Version 5 from Datalogic Mobile the best choice to empower your daily work, satisfying all the needs of the increasingly demanding warehousing and field force automation markets.

Bologna, 3 October 2007 –  Datalogic Mobile is pleased to introduce New Kyman™ Version 5, the new rugged mobile computer which incorporates the latest innovations in ergonomics, design and system architecture to satisfy all the needs of the increasingly demanding Transportation & Logistics, Field-Force Automation and Warehousing markets.

New Kyman™ Version 5 provides mobile professionals with the most relevant features needed to operate in demanding environments. Reliability, ruggedness, long run time, flexible communication and efficient data capture make this mobile computer the best choice for all data collection applications in Warehousing environments, such as inventory, picking, shipping, receiving, etc., and Field Force Automation environments for field service, meter reading, route accounting, field sales, transportation/distribution, fleet management etc.

New Kyman™ Version 5 mechanical design guarantees maximum flexibility to customers through easy conversion between hand-held and pistol grip models: the easily removable handle allows the operator to use the most appropriate option for the application at hand. With the lightest weight of its class, combined with one of the best ergonomics on the market, this mobile computer reduces operator fatigue without compromising reliability and robustness.

The industry standard architecture of the New Kyman™ Version 5 provides a high level of consistency, making every aspect of the mobility solution work seamlessly and efficiently. New Kyman™ Version 5 maximizes data capture operation and communication using the fastest Intel X Scale processor, while the latest Windows CE operating system increases the return on investment through seamless integration and ease of deployment. To better fulfil field-force automation application needs, the New Kyman™ Version 5 will also be available in the Windows Mobile 6.0 version soon.

A vast variety of symbologies enable New Kyman™ Version 5 to meet every market and application objective, offering a full range of data capture options include RFID HF-ISO, Voice Recognition and bar code, while 2D imager, standard and extra long range laser options provide data capture from near contact to distances of several meters. The operator benefits from the “green spot” (Datalogic patent application), receiving immediate and visible good read feedback directly on the code, useful in dark or noisy environments.

New Kyman™Version 5 simultaneous wireless communication capabilities (Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi® 802.11 b/g, GPRS/GSM/EDGE) enable fast transactions and seamless interaction with information systems. While the latest RF security protocols such as WPA™ and WPA2™ keep data secure, with Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) Version 3 makes it possible to leverage all the advantages offered by a Cisco WLAN infrastructure.

The IP64 sealing protection against water and dust, together with a 1.8m drop resistance, wide operating temperature range and the sturdy outer case with overmold protection makes New Kyman™Version 5 the best in its class, ensuring maximum reliability and robustness to survive the most demanding environments.
