Symbol PDT6842 Hand Held Computer

Symbol MC9060 (MC9000 Series) A newer version of this item is available.
It is replaced by the Symbol MC9060 (MC9000 Series).
The PDT6842 Series are rugged, lightweight portable data terminals combining mobile computing and optional wireless communications with comfortable, well-balanced "forward-scanning" ergonomics. Designed for harsh environments, the PDT6842 is excellent for industrial markets such as transportation and distribution, yet small enough for scan-intensive applications in retail, such as inventory management and replenishment, price management and receiving. This tough terminal also has a ruggedized housing to withstand multiple 4 ft./1.2 m drops to concrete across its entire operating temperature range and is environmentally sealed against severe weather conditions, including dust and rain. All units ship with one product reference guide.

Rugged Terminals for Scan-Intensive Applications

The PDT6842 of rugged, portable data terminals combine mobile computing, integrated bar code data capture and optional wireless communications in a lightweight, ergonomic device. PDT6842 terminals are ideal for data management activities and increase accuracy anywhere along the supply chain. The comfortable, "forward-scanning" design enhances productivity for scan-intensive applications in retail such as inventory management, replenishment and price management. Yet PDT6842 terminals are also tough enough for applications in harsh environments such as manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

PDT6842 terminals are environmentally sealed against severe weather conditions, including dust and rain. They are rugged enough to withstand multiple 4 ft./1.2 m drops to concrete–across the entire operating temperature range; a rubber "boot" enhances product durability.

Flexible Computing at the Point of Activity

This flexible productivity tool offers features such as standard, long-range, high-visibility, or two-dimensional scanning options and a 35- or 46-key alphanumeric keypad. Additionally, the PDT6842 is available with wireless local area network (WLAN) connectivity for real-time, high-performance data transfer or extended memory for batch communications with your PC— you choose the right communications capabilities to meet your needs.

Whether users are performing inventory counts, shelf price audits, receiving, stock transfers or markdowns, the improved display is sharper and easier to read ––even in full sunlight or in high-intensity, artificial light—for increased productivity. Add WLAN connectivity together with a premium performance scanner and you have a rugged decision support tool for real-time data management. Connect a portable printer and generate bar codes for price markdowns or shelf label changes at the point of activity. What's more, the PDT6842 is equipped with a large-capacity battery to ensure ample power for full shift use.

Symbol is the worldwide leader in bar code-driven data management systems with thousands of wireless network installations and millions of scanners and terminals in use.
