The HX2 boosts performance in warehouse picking & small parcel move applications
LXE Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged wireless computers that improve the performance of supply-chain execution applications, today introduced a new addition to its line of wearable, hands-free computers the HX2 rugged wearable computer. The HX2 rugged wearable computer is a small, light-weight data collection computer designed to be worn on an operators arm or waist so that both hands are free to more effectively and efficiently perform warehouse inventory moves, including piece picking to carts, containers or conveyers; case picking; parcel moves; and broken case activities.

For a wearable computer to be embraced by the market it has to be both comfortable and easy to use. The units innovative arm bands that secure both the unit and its battery keeps the wearable computer in the ready position at all times by preventing the unit from rotating around the operators arm a common complaint among existing wearable users. The adaptable arm bands can be worn close to the elbow or near the wrist whatever is the operators preference.
The compact HX2 rugged wearable computer has an extraordinarily bright and crisp colour display for easy viewing in any lighting conditions and from any angle no longer is there a need for your wearable computer to be front and centre to be read. And the large, backlit keys have been carefully designed for use in high-speed picking environments. The keys are fully mappable, so customers can customise them for specific applications.
Beyond all that, this computer is tough. It has to be to survive the tough work environments in which it will be used. The HX2 wearable computers magnesium alloy front and impact-resistant screen are designed to keep the unit in service and out of the repair shop. The
HX2 rugged wearable computers ring scanners (laser and imager) are built as tough as the main computer.
Both the HX2 rugged wearable computer and its ring scanner accessories were designed with safety in mind. The entire HX2 rugged wearable computer system features breakaway connections at multiple points and a low-profile, smooth design to resist snagging on common warehouse fixtures and equipment.
With the HX2 rugged wearable computer along with the HX1 dedicated voice computer and the MX7 multimodal scanning/voice handheld computer, LXE now has one of the industrys most complete suite of data collection solutions for picking, says Jim Childress, LXEs president and general manager. With LXE, customers can now choose the perfect picking technology for their specific applications.
The HX2 rugged wearable computer is driven by the latest Windows CE 5.0 operating system and an Intel XScale processor. It features an 802.11b/g radio with Bluetooth, so youre prepared for the real-time business opportunities of today and tomorrow.
Weve integrated the feedback from dozens of current wearable customers into the design of the HX2 rugged wearable computer, says Steve Binder, Managing Director, UK Operations, LXE UK Ltd. Weve developed a unit that not only significantly improves upon these existing wearable terminals, but does so in a manner that wont disrupt operators who are comfortable with the operation of their existing terminals.
The HX2 rugged wearable computer also includes LXEs ToughTalkTM technology. ToughTalk technology is LXEs specialised combination of LXEs trademark ruggedised system design, advanced audio circuitry and noise canceling techniques, which enable the HX2 rugged wearable computer to support todays industrial-grade voice recognition applications. With the HX2 rugged wearable computer, customers can run both their voice logistics applications and their traditional barcode scanning applications on the same unit.
