The M270SE mobile handheld computer from ACD Elektronik GmbH, already firmly established on the market, has been setting standards in terms of safety, usability and durability since it was introduced. Since recently, the M270SE is also available as an Advanced Range variant. But what does Advanced Range mean in practical terms for the user? To put it briefly, Advanced Range means one device for all process steps. Thanks to the powerful Zebra SE5500 scan engine, the M270SE AR is capable of reading barcodes both from a distance of 5 cm and, under optimal conditions, from up to 14 m away from the object. The extended scanning range of the M270SE AR allows users to work more efficiently and with greater focus than ever before. “Where previously different devices were necessary or inconvenient distances had to be covered, it is now possible with the M270SE AR to scan codes at a wide variety of distances without any additional effort or loss of time,” says Alina Guther, product manager at ACD Elektronik GmbH. The scan engine is integrated directly into the housing, so that the device can be used without a pistol grip. An additional benefit is the green aiming point. It provides easier and faster targeting of the code and is an upgrade to the traditional red aiming points, especially at long distances. For those who still prefer to work with a pistol grip, the M270SE AR can of course be fitted with one.
