Psion Teklogix will use IMHX (Hall: 18  Stand No: 18M94)to launch a number of new and innovative additions to their extensive range of mobile computing, wireless data collection, imaging, voice and RFID solutions.

Innovations on show for the first time in the UK include new additions to the companys range of vehicle-mounted computers and the latest version of Psions hugely popular Workabout Pro Speech a hand-held data collection terminal with voice technology and Integrated Speech Module that enables users to pick and put-away by voice, then scan or image a bar code or read an RFID transponder.

Making its debut at the show will be the model 8515 entry level vehicle-mounted computer. Intended for use primarily with forklift trucks operating within a warehousing, port or other industrial environment, the 8515 is aimed at those users who consider other vehicle mounted terminals either too big or too expensive. Its compact dimensions make it highly compatible with smaller counterbalanced trucks and other warehouse materials handling equipment.

Measuring only 195mm x 210mm and weighing a mere 1.5kg, the lightweight 8515 can be mounted on surfaces normally too weak to accommodate heavier vehicle-based computers. However, its small size does not mean that ease of data entry is compromised. The 8515s easy to clean, PC-style alphanumeric keyboard features a large enter key and highlighted numeric keys for fast and accurate data entry.

In addition to the 8515, Psion Teklogix will use IMHX to show case two new rugged additions to its range of vehicle-mounted computers.

The 8580 and 8590 are offered with a choice of operating system Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Embedded to give users complete versatility within the warehouse or distribution centre environment.

Because their robust design makes them less sensitive to variations in temperature and the effects of vibration and other shocks, the 8580 and 8590 are particularly suitable for use in the most demanding applications.

With a 10.4 diagonal screen measurement, the 8580 is the smallest of the two models and is recommended for less intense applications, while the 8590 has a 12.1 screen and, with its automotive 20 GB HDD, is suitable for bigger operations which require a HDD.

Hardware partner Zebra Technologies Europe, will be joining the Psion Teklogix team on the stand. Zebra will be displaying the latest RW420 printer with in-cab cradle as used by Heineken and the QL420 printer championed by DHL and TNT.

The centerpiece of the Psion Teklogix stand will be an interactive 60 plasma screen which uses state of the art air mouse and poole system technology to enable visitors to experience a stunning virtual tour of the Psion Teklogix world.

Visitors to the Psion Teklogix stand will also have the opportunity to win a digital camera, and digital photo frame or iPod nano.

Our stand is truly interactive and has been designed to allow our customers and other visitors to really be part of a shared stand experience. We are genuinely excited about the impact that it is likely to have, commented Duncan Smillie, managing director of Psion Teklogix (UK) Ltd. Visually, it is going to be stunning and the products we will be demonstrating pack a host of performance-related business benefits so I think we can guarantee that anyone visiting our stand at IMHX will have a memorable experience in more ways than one.
