Intermec Vehicle Mounted Computers - Janus 2050RF

The Janus 2050 Vehicle Mount Computer is part of the most PC-compatible family of data collection products on the market. Featuring a Intel 386 processor, true MS-DOS 6.2 programmability, 4 MB of RAM, and standards-based, open architecture, the Janus 2050 enables Information Systems personnel to easily integrate a data collection system with your existing infrastructure. Plus, its broad compatibility and familiar operation can help reduce support costs throughout the life of your system.

Rugged design—tested to the toughest shock and vibration standards—proven reliability, and flexible architecture help to ensure that the Janus 2050 delivers years of dependable service even in harsh environments. And its large, bright, electroluminescent display is easy to read both in the dimmest warehouse as well in brighter environments.

In addition, the Janus 2050 supports multiple connectivity options for terminal emulation and client-server systems. That support, together with user-accessible PC card slots and multiple radio frequency and scanner choices, make it easy to extend your Janus data collection system throughout the enterprise without having to support multiple products and platforms.
