Excellent Environmental Durability, including a Drop Resistance of 3.0 Meters

The DT-X8 terminals have been designed to meet a drop resistance of 3.0 meters to concrete, ensuring that they can survive impacts from the kind of heights likely to be encountered in typical work environments such as warehouses. The terminal housing, the area surrounding the LCD, and the battery cover are reinforced with impact-absorbing elastomer resin to withstand the tough conditions typically found in warehouses and similar environments. The terminals meet the IP67* standard for moisture and particle resistance and operate at sub-zero temperatures down to -20°C. The DT-X8 provides reliable operation in a variety of demanding applications, including work outdoors in wet conditions and in dusty environments.

Power-Saving Design to Deliver Long Operating Time

A unique power-saving design provides extended operation even in applications where a permanent wireless LAN connection is required. A newly developed, high-capacity battery delivers plenty of power and effective power management features, such as wireless standby mode and quick resume, ensure a very long battery life.

Key Design for Excellent Operating Performance

The key design allows easy operation even when the user is wearing work gloves. To reduce data entry errors, the keys have been enlarged and the responsiveness has been enhanced by widening the key pitch and key stroke. The terminal has an optimized key layout, with the trigger keys, cursor key, enter key, and other frequently used keys easily accessible for comfortable one-handed operation.

Highly Visible LCD, Even Outdoors

DT-X8 terminals are equipped with a 2.7-inch color Blanview® TFT LCD that features intuitive touch panel operation. This LCD provides excellent visibility indoors and in sunlight and has been designed to consume much less power than conventional LCDs, allowing the terminal to operate for longer on a single charge. Shock-absorbing material between the LCD panel and plastic touch panel dramatically increases the strength of the display, reducing damage from drops, impacts and other rough handling.

High-Performance Laser Scanner

Three trigger keys, one in the center and another on each side of the terminal, ensure efficient one-hand scanning. The terminal is equipped with functions for more accurate and rapid scanning, including scan width control, laser focus function, and vibrator alert function.

Scan Width Control

This feature controls the laser beam width to prevent incorrect reading of adjacent barcodes.

Laser Focus Function

When multiple barcodes are scanned simultaneously, the scanned barcode is briefly highlighted with laser light to visually indicate to the user which barcode was decoded.

Vibrator Alert Function

In addition to the LED indicator and buzzer, a vibrator alert is also used to indicate a successful scan. This is useful for noisy environments or where there are several users in the same location.

C-MOS Imager for 2D Barcode Reading

The DT-X8 series includes a model equipped with a C-MOS scanner capable of reading a wide variety of 1D and 2D barcode symbologies, including GS1 DataBar, the newest barcode standard. Careful CPU, memory and performance tuning ensure high-speed reading capability. The terminals incorporate a decode window centering function to scan only the desired area when barcodes are printed adjacent to each other. These user-friendly features combine to make barcode scanning as easy as possible.

IEEE802.11b/g Wireless LAN

DT-X8 terminals have an integrated IEEE802.11b/g wireless LAN module and support the WPA2 secure wireless communications protocol. They also support 802.1x authentication (such as PEAP and EAP-TLS) and VoIP software for voice communication on a wireless LAN.

Equipped with Bluetooth® 2.0

Bluetooth® Ver. 2.0 (Class 2), for wireless connection with mobile printers and other devices, is integrated as a standard feature. Furthermore, the DT-X8 terminals come with the Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) function for high-speed communication.
Note: The connected device must also support the EDR function.

Wireless Standby and Quick Resume

DT-X8 terminals incorporate features that support efficient wireless LAN operation. These include wireless standby mode for maintaining a low-power wireless connection for fast access to a wireless LAN and quick resume for restoring communication from the terminal to the LAN within a few seconds when it returns from suspend mode.
