Symbol SPT Device





Feature-rich, the SPT 1800 product family extends the reach of IT resources in a host of industries. Hospital physicians and caregivers can have the latest patient data at hand. Warehouse management can easily record new inventory levels to networked host systems as shipments are unloaded. Service professionals in hospitality can offer curbside check-in at hotels and mobile sales counters during peak times.

Detailed attention to ergonomics and sleekly rounded edges provide a secure fit in the hand. At 7 in./17.8 cm high, the SPT 1800 easily slips into a pocket. Weighing just 10.3 oz/ 288 gm, this powerful productivity tool is a perfect fit for mobile workers who capture and communicate information on the job.

The scan engine in the SPT 1800 family is the SE 900 from Symbol Technologies. This state-of-the-art scan engine, the smallest, lightest and brightest available today, delivers premium performance even at ranges of up to 30 in./76.2 cm.

Tackle Tough Environments
The SPT 1800 is tough enough for use in manufacturing and industrial environments; its ruggedized housing withstands drops of up to 4 ft/1.2 m to concrete. The unit is tested to IP54 standards for protection against the elements like rain and dust, so it can be used outdoors on loading docks and yards and, because it uses a 650nm laser diode, you will still see the scan beam even in bright sunlight!

Symbol designed the SPT 1800 product family for effort-free use in factories, hospitals, offices, stores, or on the road. The familiar and easy to use pen-based interface complements convenient push-button controls. Left and right trigger and scan buttons facilitate one-handed operation. A high-contrast, anti-reflective liquid crystal display makes data easy to read even in low light or outdoors. A rechargeable lithium ion battery and optional single- and multi-slot cradle configurations assure flexible convenience and strong performance no matter how intensive the task.

Tailor Solutions With Ease
The SPT 1800 family uses the Palm Computing platform. Programmers can build solutions from numerous standard development environments. The standard 8 MB of RAM is excellent for large data or program storage demands. Flash ROM expands is also 8 MB.

Developers can use standard Palm OS development tools to write custom applications quickly and inexpensively. The development tool kit includes Symbol Application Program Interfaces (API) that control the scanner, enable local area network communications, and manipulate data input and printing using the serial or infrared ports. A growing number of software development tools including CodeWarrior, SatelliteForms, PenRight!, AvantGo and Riverbed Scout MTS, support APIs from Symbol in their application development tool sets.
