Designed with a large sunlight-readable VGA display and long-life battery, the Trimble Ranger 3 handheld computer is built tough to withstand the elements while working in the field. The Ranger 3 computer meets or exceeds rigorous military standards for temperature extremes, drops, vibration, humidity and altitude. It carries an IP67 rating, meaning it is sealed against dust and it can survive immersion in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes.
The Ranger 3 series has many built-in capabilities that make it the computing device of choice for data collection and asset management. The integrated GPS receiver, 5 megapixel camera and 1D laser barcode scanner capture asset data that can be geotagged as part of field service and logistics applications. The GPS receiver, combined with electronic compass and accelerometer, provide location, direction and motion data together on one device. Direct data input is supported with the QWERTY alphanumeric keypad and large touchscreen. With integrated 3G GSM WWAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® features, the Ranger 3 handheld has the wireless capabilities to connect and communicate with nearby devices, the Internet and corporate networks, enabling mobile applications to synchronize data with office servers and databases from the field.
The Ranger 3 handheld provides mobile application developers with a robust computing platform that enables them to confidently send their applications into the field. With a Cortex-A8 superscalar processor, 8 GB of Flash memory, many integrated features and the flexibility to support additional features, the Ranger 3 handheld has the capabilities to support powerful mobile solutions. The Ranger 3 series includes the Windows Mobile® 6.5 Professional operating system.
