[ TOUGHNESS ]
Built to withstand use in demanding environments
Unique Reinforced Structure
Strength has been increased by integrating the LCD, main circuit board, and inner case in a robust, three-layer structure. In addition, the upper and lower cases feature an improved design to provide impact resistance and prevent twisting or misalignment if a device is dropped. These rugged terminals reflect the pursuit of durability right down to the smallest detail. For example, the entire body, battery cover, and other areas are reinforced with a special impact-absorbing elastomer resin.
Superb Environmental Durability
The DT-X200 range of terminals are designed to withstand hard use in warehouse and other similar environments. The device can resist drops from heights of up to 3.0 meters*1 and can be used with confidence even in situations where rough handling is likely. They are compliant with IP67*2 and can operate even in sub-zero temperatures (down to -20ºC). This results in reliable performance in demanding environments, including outdoors in the rain and in dusty warehouses.
*1 Drop-to-concrete resistance: 6 surfaces, 4 corners, 1 cycle. The value is a test value, not a guaranteed value.
*2 No ingress of dust. No ingress of water even if temporarily immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure when all covers for connectors, etc. are closed.
Long Operating Time
A unique power-saving design provides extended operation even in applications where a browser connection or other permanent wireless LAN connection is required.
A high-capacity battery pack, and effective power management features such as wireless standby mode* and quick resume, ensure a very long battery life.
* A wireless LAN standby low-power state for operating only the functions needed to maintain a wireless LAN connection while shutting down the display and other devices.

THE TECHNOLOGY OF TOUGHNESS
Leading-edge technology that supports the further evolution of durability
The area around the LCD is protected by a rubber cover. In addition, the LCD and main circuit board are securely fixed to the middle case to form an integrated component and increase resistance to shocks.
To prevent water ingress, packing material is inserted between the protruding and recessed areas where the upper and lower cases fit together. Arrangement of packing material perpendicular to the direction of movement of moving parts, such as the battery cover and USB connector cover, ensures stable water resistance.
Uncompromising pursuit of usability from a body shape based on human-centered design principles
Key Design for Excellent Operating Performance
The key design allows easy operation even when the user is wearing work gloves. To reduce data entry errors, the keys have been enlarged and responsiveness has been enhanced by widening the key pitch and key stroke. The terminal has an optimized key layout, and the trigger keys, cursor keys, enter key, and other frequently used keys are multifunction keys easily accessible for comfortable one-handed operation.
Highly Visible LCD, Even Outdoors
The DT-X200 terminals are equipped with a 2.7-inch color transmissive TFT LCD that features intuitive touch panel operation. This LCD provides excellent visibility indoors and in sunlight.
[ SPEED & SCANNING ]
Major specification enhancements for high-speed processing, high-speed communications and high-speed reading
High-Performance CPU and Generous Memory Capacity
The DT-X200 terminals are equipped with a Marvell® PXA320 (806 MHz) CPU that delivers high-speed processing. They feature a generous 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of flash ROM. They have all the power necessary to smoothly and efficiently run demanding applications.
High-Performance Laser Scanner*
The laser scanner offers functions that support efficient scanning, including scan width control, laser focus, and vibrator alert. Furthermore, a scanner module improvement has increased processing speed, and improved the scanning of hard-to-read barcodes.
These high-performance specifications make fast, more accurate scanning possible.
* Equipped models: DT-X200-10E/11E
Reading time has been reduced by tuning the device’s processing methods to save tenths of a second.
・Startup and stabilization performed in parallel
・Reduction of reading time
Scanning of hard-to-read barcodes
Light print or fading
Recognition accuracy when scanning damaged or poorly printed barcodes has been increased by doubling the number of filter patterns used for analysis and optimizing other parameters.
Advanced C-MOS Imager for 1D and 2D Code Reading*
The DT-X200 terminals support reading of a wide variety of 1D and 2D code symbologies. Use of the latest module and decoder improves performance on hard-to-read barcodes and increases hand jitter tolerance.
* Equipped models: DT-X200-20E/21E
Scanning of hard-to-read codes
Hard-to-read barcode images
Improved module and decoder performance have increased accuracy in reading hard-to-read codes, such as lightly printed, faded, blurred, or soiled images.
Increased hand jitter tolerance
Use of a global shutter improves performance in capturing moving objects by a factor of ten or more. The scanner reliably reads images even if jittering occurs.
Full-Range Scanner with Maximum Reading Depth of 20 Meters*1
A built-in full-range scanner with auto focus can read codes*2 up to 20 meters away. This means that a forklift operator can directly scan barcodes on pallets and shipping cartons from the operator’s seat. The scanner is even capable of reading location codes at the top of storage racks from a long distance, enabling the safe performance of product inspections when there is danger from falling objects.
*1 Equipped model: DT-X200-41E
*2 For two-digit Data Matrix codes with resolution of 20 mm (CASIO measurement environment)
Support for RFID Tags and Contactless Smart Cards*
Some of the DT-X200 models are equipped with a reader/writer that supports the NFC IP2 short-distance wireless communication standard and is capable of recognizing ISO15693-compliant RFID tags (13.56 MHz) and contactless smart cards such as MIFARE®. In addition to supporting a variety of solutions that utilize RFID tags, such as document and parts control systems, these terminals offer enhanced login security using contactless smart card authentication.
* Equipped models: DT-X200-11E/21E/41E
Enhanced Wireless LAN Function
The DT-X200 terminals have an integrated wireless LAN module that complies with IEEE802.11b/g standards in the 2.4 GHZ band, the IEEE802.11a standard for communication in the 5 GHz band, and the IEEE802.11n standard for higher speed communications. This feature allows efficient real-time operation.
Wireless LAN Operation Standby and Quick Resume
The DT-X200 terminals are equipped with functions that support efficient wireless LAN operation. They include a wireless standby mode for maintaining a low-power wireless connection for fast access to a wireless LAN and a quick resume feature for restoring communication from the terminal to the LAN within a few seconds when it returns from suspend mode.
Equipped with Bluetooth® 2.1
Bluetooth® Ver. 2.1 (Class 2), for wireless connection with mobile printers and other devices, is integrated as a standard feature. Furthermore, the DT-X200 terminals come with the Enhanced Data Rate* (EDR) function for high-speed communication.
Note: The connected device must also support the EDR function.
