DL-AXIST™
THE NEW FULL TOUCH ANDROID PDA
OVERVIEW
Datalogic ADC is pleased to announce the release of the DL-Axist PDA: a rugged Android PDA with a brilliant full
touch 5 inch screen. Its industrial robustness allows the PDA to survive the
toughest environments and also has a Gorilla® Glass 3 touchscreen and
protective rubber boot to ensure an additional level of ruggedness.
The DL-Axist PDA is equipped with an advanced 2D imager allowing quick and
easy data capture from high density codes at standard range distances, along
with Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ technology for visual good-read feedback.
For applications requiring evidence of task execution or damaged
documentation, a 5 MP auto focus camera with LED flash provides easy
documentation with photos.
The DL-Axist PDA embeds Datalogic’s new SoftSpot technology (patent pending):
a user-definable ‘floating soft trigger’ to leverage the large touch display,
allowing a new scan or camera triggering experience for the user!
A full set of wireless technologies is embedded in the DL-Axist PDA:
•
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n Cisco CCX v4 certified for quick network access and
with superior MIMO technology (ensures higher throughput and better
coverage)
•
3G/4G cellular for voice and data communication
•
Enterprise Class Assisted GPS (A-GPS) for location based applications
•
Bluetooth® v4.0 wireless technology for fast and low power consuming
data connections
•
NFC for easy and intuitive configuration and pairing
The DL-Axist PDA aims to combine recent technology trends with Datalogic’s traditional rugged expertise in a
user friendly and complete package with the following Features and Benefits:

DATALOGIC’S SOFTSPOT TECHNOLOGY
This Datalogic technology (patent pending) allows a new data capture experience, leveraging the large touch
display of the DL-Axist PDA to improve ergonomics during scan intensive applications.
The visual representation of SoftSpot technology is a green bubble of configurable size that the user can position
anywhere on the touch screen display. This will act as a ‘floating soft trigger’ for data capture or for repeated
functions in mobile applications, improving ergonomics of daily use.
When not in use, the SoftSpot will appear as transparent overlay, becoming non-invasive during other user
activities. SoftSpot technology is pre-installed in the DL-Axist PDA and can be integrated as a free API in customer
line of business applications.

MIMO WI-FI
Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) is a technology to improve the capacity of a radio link using multiple
transmit and receive antennas to exploit multi-path propagation. This technology is already present in the
majority of existing Wi-Fi infrastructures and it is supported by many laptops and top class smartphones.
The DL-Axist PDA is the first device in the industrial sector supporting MIMO technology! Benefits for customers
choosing the DL-Axist PDA will not only be related to the peak data connection throughput, but also coverage will
offer significant improvement over competitive devices. Together with fast roaming (implemented as an enterprise
feature on the DL-Axist), this technology provides a seamless handoff between different access points while
avoiding data loss. MIMO ensures superior Wi-Fi connectivity for the DL-Axist PDA.

TRAINING INFORMATION
A new Datalogic Training Center course is already available for the DL-Axist PDA. The Training Center provides a
self-paced, online training program, covering the functions, features and competitive advantages of the DL-Axist
PDA. To access the Training Center, visit this link: http://training.datalogic.com.

product, the first to implement Android OS in the Datalogic portfolio.
COMPETITION ANALYSIS
The DL-Axist PDA is a fully featured PDA, leveraging the rich Datalogic expertise in the rugged market and
distinguishing from consumer smartphones (also from emerging rugged smartphone solutions) both from a
hardware and software point of view. Additionally, the industrial sector is already offering some full touch devices
with the Android OS, so the following selling points will help position the DL-Axist PDA and differentiate from
existing solutions:







Brilliant 5 inch HD Display vs. competitive products mainly between 4.3 to 4.7 inches
Strong Ruggedization: Gorilla® Glass 3 touch screen, IP67, drop spec from 1.8 m / 6.0 ft to concrete with
rubber boot option and -20 ºC / -4 ºF operating temperature
Suitability to scan intensive applications
 Datalogic’s ‘Green Spot’ technology for visual good-read feedback
 Datalogic’s SoftSpot technology (touch trigger) for novel use of the touch screen display
 3 physical scan keys
Superior Wi-Fi coverage through MIMO technology and fast roaming protocols
Largest battery in the rugged PDA market (6400 mAh)
WWAN version with voice and data (4G HSPA+) and dedicated enterprise class aGPS module
NFC to streamline configuration
 Tap to Configure (patent pending)
 Tap to Pair (for example, when connecting to a Bluetooth peripheral)
Additionally, the DL-Axist PDA aggressive price positioning is very compelling against traditional tier 1 full touch
products. Further details and specific ‘Selling Against’ analysis can be found in the Competitive Selling Guide
document (available on the Partner Extranet on April 29, 2016).
