8530 G2 Overview
Vehicle Mount Powerhouses
Extreme working conditions put workers under immense pressure. They deserve equipment that’s as rugged as they are -- vehicle mount computers that make their jobs easier, not harder.
The 8525 and the 8530 are rugged, vehicle mount powerhouses. They endure the bleakest conditions and always come back for more. They also deliver intelligence and insight where it's
needed most: at the mobile worker’s fingertips. That’s why companies that rely on these industry powerhouses have happier workers and higher productivity.
And if you want maximum visual display, that’s when the 8530 really comes in to its own. Its huge display screen outshines the competition, displaying more information, more clearly.
Too rugged for their own good
The 8525 G2 and the 8530 G2 take ruggedness to new extremes, operating comfortably at temperatures between -30ºC to +60ºC (-22°F to 140°F). Thanks to heated components and exceptional sealing, the 8525/8530 G2 can handle the heavy condensation that occurs when driving from a cold warehouse to a warm receiving dock. They’ve earned an IP66 rating, so you never worry about dust or moisture causing downtime.
Both models are more than tough enough to withstand the violent shock and vibration that are daily fare in extreme environments.
The tech package
The 8525 G2 and the 8530 G2 are Microsoft Windows® based, so integration couldn’t be simpler and application development is a no-brainer. So when your business expands, the technology’s ready and waiting to expand with you.
Both the 8525 G2 and the 8530 G2 are jammed with technology including the XScale processor, WiFi, Bluetooth® and narrowband connectivity while a range of external ports allows you to connect to just about any kind of peripheral. These are no lightweights.
The heart of the powerhouse
The power that comes from forklift truck batteries can be very nasty - high voltage peaks and gaps without power. The 8525 G2 and 8530 G2 are designed with the experience of four generations of vehicle mount computers. The wide-range 10-90V power supply allows installation on any truck without the need for pre-regulators, additional power supplies or filters and… additional cost.
You want a vehicle mount computer that still runs while the truck power is down? No problem with the optional internal backup battery of the 8525 / 8530 G2.
The 8525 G2 boasts an impressive half VGA 640 x 240 (8.8”) colour touch-screen display, so workers never need squint again.
As for the 8530 G2 – this is where it really comes in to its own. It’s packing a full SVGA 800 x 600 (10.4”) colour touch-screen display. The display is readable in all lighting conditions – including direct sunlight. Workers, quite simply, love it.
The 8525 G2 has an integrated keyboard, available in a variety of formats – all with 10 dedicated function keys.
The 8530 G2 takes things a bit further. It has a powerful, on-screen virtual keyboard. Very handy when you’re struggling for vehicle mount space. And if you have more demanding data entry needs, you can always switch to the separate keyboard.
Don’t forget the housing
The 8525 / 8530 G2 housing is made from powder coated magnesium that delivers a greater strength-to-weight ratio than aluminum or steel. Super- rugged performance at the weight of plastics.
