Put Metrologic's OptimusS right in your pocket and take it wherever data collection needs take you. This stylish batch portable data terminal (PDT) combines powerful features with easy-to-use software to get up and running in no time. The Metrologic OptimusS enables users to quickly scan and store their product information. After data collection is done, simply drop the unit into its cradle and send the data back to the host to keep information up-to-date and accurate. Each Metrologic OptimusS comes with the Optimizer software package to facilitate application development. This graphically-oriented program allows even computer beginners to quickly and easily setup the applications they wish to run on their PDT. There are also several simple utilities for uploadingand downloading of data. The entire software suite is designed to make PDT application
development a painless process. Besides great software, the Metrologic OptimusS comes with a long list of other features. The Metrologic OptimusS comes with 2MB RAM to accommodate users with larger inventory. Never worry about switching batteries again, either. The rechargeable battery that comes with every Metrologic OptimusS has a long battery life, allowing approximately 100 hours of scanning before needing to be recharged. The battery is also Lithium Ion, so users don't need to worry about it wearing out any time soon. All these features and the excellent laser bar code scanning you've come to expect from Metrologic products make the OptimusS optimal for all your data collection needs.
