Datalogic Introduces New Version of the Kyman™ Palm Terminal Industrial Mobile Computer
Datalogic introduces the new improved version of its Kyman™ mobile computer now with larger super-bright display, top level robustness, and choice of keyboard layout.

Bologna, 9th November 2004. The Kyman™ is a palm terminal in Datalogic's [email protected]™ family of industrial mobile computers, that features an integrated bar code reader and has a user-friendly user interface. It is designed for typical data collection operations in the distribution&retail or manufacturing industries such as in warehouse management systems.

The Kyman™ now features a 1/8 VGA display which is bright and has an enhanced back-light system so that information can be viewed in dark and light ambient conditions. The display size can accommodate well-known character-based screens as well as modern graphic screens.

Another new feature of the Kyman™ mobile computer is that it is now available with a numeric keyboard layout in addition to an alphanumeric version. The numeric layout also has 12 function keys which are practical for use in SAP applications to activate specific transactions. An audible key-beep confirms that a keystroke has been carried out.

Regardless of how tough the work environment is, the Kyman™ can operate optimally due to its 1.8m drop resistance to concrete surfaces and IP54 protection against dust and water. Like its predecessor, the Kyman™ supports data entry by means of 1D and 2D codes from a range of scanning engines (high performance, long range, and 2D raster).

Additionally, the Kyman™ palm terminal meets the needs of customers with existing Wi-Fi radio infrastructures, as it is available with either IEEE802.11b (Wi-Fi) or Radio-Ready WLAN options to be equipped with a PCMCIA card.

Datalogic has provided the Kyman™ with a variety of software tools including DL TCL™, the Datalogic terminal emulation client to connect devices directly to host systems via terminal emulation, as well as its DL Keep Connecting service for advanced connectivity management.

All-in-all, the new edition of the Kyman™ palm terminal with its improved user-interface, flexibility in wireless communications and impressive list of characteristics, is an essential tool for today's challenging warehouse management systems.
