What is rugged? When it comes to mobile computing, what does rugged mean? From a user perspective, rugged is the computer's ability to keep operating under all exposed working conditions. And not just once, but for the life of the unit, which can easily be 3-5 years.
However, depending upon the kind of work being performed, what is rugged for one user may not be rugged for another. For example, a mobile computer in a warehouse is likely to be dropped often and may be exposed to a lot of dust, but is unlikely to face extreme temperatures or rain. On the other hand, a forester will need a unit with protection against water and a wide temperature spec, but is probably not too concerned about dust.The right tool for the job
A mobile computer is really just a tool used to help you do your work. So the cardinal rule for a user is: find the right tool for the job. A wise purchaser of a mobile computer will carefully evaluate what kind of working conditions the unit will be exposed to and then dive into product specifications to find a unit that is rugged enough in the right categories to hold up under these conditions. It is also probably a good idea to select a unit which is a little more rugged than you actually need. It is far better to be too rugged than not rugged enough, and you may at some point encounter conditions more severe than you originally predicted.

Handheld develops custom rugged mobile computing solutions like the fast SP400X all-in-one scanner and printer which houses both a barcode scanner and a mobile printer in one device. The wearable scanner is one example of our custom rugged computers. Beyond the imprinter, we offer other custom solutions. Call us today to see how we can help with your custom project.
The SP400X is an ideal solution for warehousing, package delivery and other logistic-type industries. This portable, robust, easy-to-use and high-performance printing solution prints directly to packages or other surfaces, eliminating the cost and time required for separate printed labels.
The SP400X is based on patents and technology that is licensed from HP, a global leader in printing and imaging. And, the device uses genuine HP inkjet cartridges, assuring a clean and highly-legible print each and every time.
The lightweight SP400X can complete more than 1,250 scans and prints per hour, scanning and printing at speeds as fast as two seconds per cycle. It operates on a lithium-ion battery capable of delivering up to 7,000 scans and prints per charge. Its 2.5 cm cube print cartridges are designed to output thousands of 0.53" x 2" (1.5 cm x 6 cm) prints. Wi-Fi compatibility integrates the device seamlessly into existing IT environments, allowing it to communicate directly with your back-end system in real time. And for ultimate efficiency, the SP400X prints directly onto packaging, so it costs less and produces less waste than thermal label printing.
To operate the device, a user aims the SP400X’s scanner at a 1-D or 2-D barcode, postal code or OCR code to capture supply-chain management information. The SP400X’s integrated Wi-Fi sends the imaging data to a warehouse-management system and receives data sent back to the device. Once the new information is received, the user rolls the SP400X across the area to be printed, and the device applies a fast-drying, smudge-free, non-toxic image directly onto any package surface: plain paper, kraft paper, packing tape, coated labels, polypropylene, polyester or polyethylene plastic.
The SP400X Imprinter features a design optimized for ease of use, with hypoallergenic materials for maximum comfort. An IP53 durability rating means this device is protected against dust and water sprays for unimpeded rugged, mobile use throughout supply chain environments.
