Symbol Technologies Symbol PDT 7500 Series Portable Data Terminals

Power and Performance for Extreme Environments

The feature-rich Symbol PDT 7500 Portable Data Terminal from Symbol Technologies thrives in the heat, cold and dust of even the harshest industrial environments.

One of the pioneers in Symbol's line of products for extreme environments, the Symbol PDT 7500 industrial terminal, is a lightweight hand-held terminal with advanced bar code scanning, data processing and communications features. Built for productivity and comfort in demanding environments, the versatile Symbol PDT 7500 links workers to data and to each other in transportation and logistics environments such as warehouses, docks, yards, and even on the road.

Designed for Extreme Environments

Symbol PDT 7500 Series terminals meet the most stringent industrial standards and are sealed to IP64 specifications for protection against water and dust. The terminals are fully functional in temperatures ranging from -13 to 122F/-25 to 50C and can withstand multiple drops of 6ft/1.8m to concrete.

As innovative as it is rugged, the Symbol PDT 7500 delivers the sophisticated ergonomic features customers need. Weighing only 19 oz./588 gm, the terminal is light enough for extended periods of use. The push-button keypad has color-coded keys to facilitate data entry, and the 1/8 VGA screen has a crystal-clear 240 x 160 pixel resolution and a generous 30 character by 20-line display. The display is backlit so it is easily viewed - even in dimly lit areas. Symbol's innovative design includes a reverse grip and hand support that can be used in signature capture, important for proof of delivery and for tracking or tracing goods, parcels and packages.

Power and performance for large jobs

The terminals in the Symbol PDT 7500 Series are designed to have the power and performance to handle large jobs. The integrated high-speed SE 2200 scan engine incorporates advanced scanning for fast 1-D and 2-D bar code data capture. The device reads bar-coded shipping manifests, and pallet contents at 15 times the speed of most other scan engines. The conveniently placed scan trigger is easy to turn on and off during single-handed use.

Formidable scanning jobs, complex programs and data-intensive tasks such as inventory tracking or materials management are perfect for the Symbol PDT 7500. Within its sealed case are a fast, state-of-the art, 486-based AMD Elan SC400 microprocessor and a low-power 32-bit single chip/AT-based micro-controller that runs industry-standard MS-DOS or Windows CE applications. Up to 16 MB of RAM and 32 MB of flash memory, among the largest data storage capacities available, assure flawless performance regardless of the job size.

Transmits data anytime, anywhere

The Symbol PDT 7500 transmits data on the dock or on the road with either batch processing on RF models that support Spectrum24 wireless LAN technology or Wide Area Networks (WANs). For maximum operating convenience, the high-capacity lithium ion battery operates for a full 10-hour work shift and signals the operator when it is time for a recharge. The terminal slips into an optional free-standing or vehicle-mounted cradle for battery charging and data transfer.

The Symbol PDT 7500 is backed by a worldwide service repair and support network offered by Symbol Technologies. Symbol systems are critical to your business success in data-intensive, time-sensitive environments because our systems help you capture, access and manage information at the point of business activity.
