Symbol Technologies has unveiled the most recent addition to its video radio computer family, the VRC 8900. The mobile data terminal, described as ‘rugged’, is designed for use in industrial environments and factory floors.

The VRC 8900 is built around Windows CE operating system and offers a 32-bit, 206 MHz, Intel StrongArm processor and a 12.1 SVGA touch screen display.

"Symbol has an extensive family of rugged computers for real-world applications. The VRC 8900 is aimed right at the toughest environments, which are typically hostile to computing, but where mobile computing is essential to getting the job done. It is particularly suited to the Middle East, where industrial and oil production environments are some of the harshest and most demanding in the world,” said Sunil Chadha, regional manager, Symbol Technologies Middle East.

The VRC also interfaces with Symbol’s 1D and 2D barcode scanners, as well as integrating with its Spectrum24 wireless local area network solution.

To ensure the VRC can withstand industrial settings, the 8900 has been sealed to IP65 standards for dust and water resistance, and is also capable of surviving vibrations and extreme temperatures.
