GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Formula 7400 is a powerful mid-range portable terminal, based on PC technology with optional WIRELESS communication available, thanks to the integrated µISA card which supports the 2.4 GHz SSFH Radio. TN Client software for
IBM5250, 3270 and VT100/220 is also available.
As is the tradition with Formula products, this technologically and stylistically
refined Palm Laser PC has been conceived to offer users a compact and lightweight product, one that combines convenience with top-notch performance
characteristics.
Thanks to the DOS Operating System and the powerful 486 32-bit processor its
hardware architecture is based on, the Formula 7400 can be easily integrated
into the most popular information systems.
Also, by using the Development System 7400 based on standard C compilers integrated with special Datalogic libraries, it can be easily programmed by developers
who are already familiar with the PC environment.
Two keyboard layouts are available for the Formula 7400: one has 37 keys with
full alphanumeric support and the other has 24 keys which addresses applications
requiring mainly numeric data entry.
The bar code scanner is completely integrated and is powered by the Datalogic
decoding library, acquiring, in this manner, all the skills developed for Hand-Held
Readers.
The Formula 7400 also meets equally important requirements such as high
autonomy, resistance to falls and knocks and protection when working in harsh
environmental conditions.
Conceived to best meet the operative needs of today’s data collection world, the
Formula 7400 is reliable, flexible and highly productive. It is also provided with
2.4 GHz FHSS Radio technology for mobility in our mid-range solution.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
FEATURES
USER INTERFACE
All the components of the user interface have been particularly well
designed, beginning with the wide high contrast LCD display (96 x 64 pixels) capable of visualising any operation in all ambient light conditions.
Designers can use the display format that best suits their particular application needs, and have various operations available ranging from a minimum of 13 characters by 6 lines to a maximum of 24 characters by 8 lines.
Datalogic also offers the Formula 7400 with 2 keypad possibilities to satisfy all application needs. The Formula 7400 37K is equipped with a 37 key
keypad which is optimised in terms of space, colour scheme and ease of
operation to accommodate the integration of a new graphic overlay. This
allows easy alphanumeric data-entry and access to various complex functions in a practical and efficient manner.
Rather, the Formula 7400 24K was designed for base applications which are
mainly composed of numerical data-entry operations. In fact, 10 of the 24
keys on the keypad, immediately visible thanks to their particular color, are
dedicated mainly to numerical symbologies. The various functions are distributed among the remaining 15 keys and the graphic overlay, which also hosts
alphabetic symbologies. This graphic integration allows keypad functions to
be personalised when using particular symbologies, avoiding the need for
more expensive and complicated modifications to the keypad layout.
CRADLES AND COMMUNICATION
RS232 serial mode data transmission is provided by placing the terminal into the Formula 970 Transceiver/Charger or by connecting the PC, modem, printer or any other equipment directly to the complete RS232 port, already integrated into the
Formula 7400. Lastly, the Formula 7400 has an IrDA port that, with the dedicated software driver (optional), can be conveniently used for short-distance infrared communications.
For applications requiring connection with several Formula 970 Transceiver/Chargers, the F970 offers HW readiness to be connected over a RS485 bus. Other available cradles are the F970/C, single-slot battery charger and F970/V, vehicle mount cradle.

FORMULA 975 MULTICHARGER
The Formula 975 Multicharger is the ideal answer for battery recharging
requirements in applications where intense use of the terminal and therefore extremely reduced rest time is necessary.
The Formula 975 permits 4 or 8 battery packs to be placed in the cradle
and recharge simultaneously, allowing more operators to continue working by simply changing the run down device.
In this manner, all the pauses necessary for recharging when the terminal
is placed in the classic Transceiver/Charger are avoided.
The Multicharger also optimises battery lifetime thanks to its recycling
option, which eliminates the possibility of “memory effect.”
The F975 is suitable for F7400 and F8500 portable terminals.

SPREAD SPECTRUM WIRELESS COMMUNICATION
The Formula One wireless communication system in 2.4 GHz radio frequency has been developed by Datalogic specifically for
high-performance Formula terminals.
Formula One, which is compatible with the OpenAir 2.4 international standard, offers high speed data transmission as well as
excellent immunity against interference, thanks to Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping (SSFH) technology.
The system is based on the ACCESS POINT that provides the bridging between the wired and the wireless devices.
The Access Point can be configured and managed through the wired or wireless network, by serial connection or modem, with
the use of Telnet Access software, web browser or SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
As a further extension of the Access Point offer, the AP-7510 and AP-7920 can be used to address those applications where
no SNMP (AP-7510) or roaming (AP-7920) is required, providing great advantages in terms of the price/performance ratio.
Performance of the Formula One system can be increased with the assistance of TN Client, a complete software package for
terminal emulation based on a standard Telnet-TCP/IP protocol.
TN Client brings together the VT-100, VT-220, HP700/92, IBM 5250 and 3270 emulations, allowing for real time interaction
between the Mobile unit and Unix, HP, IBM AS/400 and IBM Mainframe systems.
