The rugged tablet industry over time has adopted testing standards developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the U.S. military (MIL-STD 810G), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and other organizations. These testing standards include test methods and certain performance guidelines that must be met in order for a tablet computer to legimately be considered “rugged” by typical industry expectations. These industry standards are extensive and include many requirements, the most often used being: high and low storage and operating temperatures, specifications on the tablet's ability to withstand numerous vibration and humidity conditions, as well as the ability for a tablet to endure rigorous tumble and drop tests. And if that’s not enough, various rain and powerful jetting water tests are employed to verify sealing integrity.

Why "High Performance" Imager in Tablet PC Matters to the Enterprise

  
  
  
  
xtablet t1200 imager barcode scanner ea31(The following blog post is written by Tracey Spoon, Senior Sales Engineer at MobileDemand.) At the local computer/electronics store recently I wanted to check reviews of a wireless router they had on sale for an enticing price.  I whipped out my trusty smart phone and fired-up my little mega online store application and proceeded to try to scan the UPC code on the box.  Tap on the screen to take the snapshot of the label and oops, the box tilted in my hand.  Try again.  Silly me – set the box back on the shelf and this time, oh, uh, took the shot but it’s so blurry it couldn’t decode it.  After a couple of additional attempts moving the phone a little further away and holding my breath to keep the phone really steady and voilà, the sweet beep of a successfully scanned and decoded barcode.  And with that, the picture and links to reviews of the router just as I wanted appeared on the display, all within a matter of just a few slightly frustrating minutes.


For the consumer this scenario is a veritable technological marvel.  To use a smart phone camera to scan a barcode and get information within a couple of minutes or so is amazing.  Not so for the enterprise user trying to do a job, though I’ve known quite a few who’ve tried.   Time is money and productivity is time and money! 

A barcode imager is a close cousin to a camera.  Basically, it’s a specialized camera and can actually be used to take an “image” of anything just like a camera.  It takes some patience and TLC to get a camera to scan a barcode, and taking a landscape photograph an imager produces something almost recognizable.  It’s a matter of the right tool for the right job.  An imager is designed with special optics and such to allow it to “see” the transitions between dark and light areas and how big those areas are so that the decoding computer (yes, a specialized computer on a chip with a program and all) can figure out that the image is a barcode, what type it is and what information it contains which is then passed on to the host computer for processing.
