back The Skorpio™ X3 Mobile Computer Creates a New Standard for Data Collection in the Retail Industry Bologna, Italy, July 18, 2012 – The Skorpio™ X3 rugged mobile computer by Datalogic ADC represents innovation at its best. Retailers can benefit from all the latest advances that technology and engineering have to offer in this compact and ergonomic solution that fits any retail requirement for mobile data collection. The Skorpio X3 mobile computer can be used for a variety of applications by the retail store associate, such as assisted sales, inventory and stock management. It offers the largest high-visibility color graphic display (3.2in) with touch screen in its class. This, combined with its specially crafted ergonomic casing, increases the viewing area in an extremely compact form factor, while its trendy design, compact size and light weight provide excellent balance and superior handling. The Skorpio X3 also resists shocks, tumbles and multiple drops from 1.5m, guaranteeing reliable performance with every scan. One of the achievements obtained from the cutting edge technology used in the Skorpio X3 mobile computer is its inclined scan engine, which scans 1D and 2D bar codes without the need to move the wrist, reducing operator fatigue to a minimum. This feature, together with Datalogic’s patented Green Spot technology, presenting a green spot directly on the code for good read feedback, makes the Skorpio X3 easier to aim and quick to read as the collected data can be viewed on the display while scanning. The Skorpio X3 mobile computer also grants versatility for specific application needs by offering three different keypads. The 50-key alphanumeric and 38-key alphanumeric keypads are ideal for situations in which terminal emulation is necessary, while the 28-key numeric keypad is particularly suited to applications handling extensive numeric data. High capacity batteries give the Skorpio X3 mobile computer extra power in scan intensive and 2D reading applications. The increased autonomy of this device permits data collection activities even for multiple workshifts. The included micro USB connector for direct charging uses any type of standard power supply found in the cellular phone market, reducing waste, and thereby sustaining the green environment. “Datalogic’s attention to detail makes the difference in the Skorpio X3 mobile computer. Every aspect of this device was carefully designed to enhance the user’s experience, while providing retailers with improved efficiency and streamlined business processes at the same time” comments Francesco Montanari, Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Computing, Datalogic ADC.
