"In addition to being the most rugged terminal/printer palette on the market, the new version of the RW 420 Route Palette is the only product compatible with the new MC9500 Hand Held Terminal" said Kevin Davies, Mobile Product manager EMEA, Zebra Technologies. "Zebra’s broad range of integrated carrying devices, that are compatible with Motorola Hand Held Terminals, optimise delivery operations thus providing unparalleled efficiency to the mobile workforce."
Designed to handle the harsh demands of mobile computing in the field, the RW 420 Route Palette is the most rugged of its kind, with an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP 42, making it resistant to environmental conditions such as moisture, dust and dirt.
"The best-in-class ruggedness and durability of both the RW420 Route Palette and the Motorola MC9500 is the exact combination workers need to improve productivity and deliver results in the field," said Marco Landi, Vice President, EMEA Channels, Motorola Solutions. "Motorola Solutions, continued relationship with Zebra is a testimony of our dedication in providing the most innovative, technologically advanced solutions for the mobile worker."
With a lightweight shoulder strap and solid handle, mobile workers can carry the Palette easily to customer visits – then cradle it on their arm as they enter data, print receipts, invoices and inventory pick tickets, eliminating the need to search for separate mobile devices attached to their belt.
Other key features include:
· Built-in DEX (Digital Exchange) interface – allows the worker to use the customers’ IT system and download data (such as quantity and pricing) regarding the product being delivered. It also allows for a quick settlement or reconciliation between the delivery company and the location receiving the product.
· Simultaneous charging – both the printer and handheld computer can charge simultaneously via a single source, so there is no need to purchase separate chargers saving money and space.
· User flexibility – the device release allows workers to use the printer and computer individually, minimising company downtime and spare pools. In addition, integrated feet allow users to stand the Palette up while they perform other duties
Separate versions of the RW 420 Route Palette are available to support the Motorola MC9500 series, MC909X-S, MC75 or MC-70 mobile computer.
The Zebra RW420 Route Palette will be sold primarily through Zebra’s vast network of channel partners. For more information, please call +44 (0)1628 556000 or visit www.emea.zebra.com/en/rwseries.
