Works as hard as you do
The needs of businesses are
changing almost daily, creating
a demand for a fleet of handheld
computers that can keep up.
Introducing the latest innovation
from Psion Teklogix –
Intelligent, rugged and most
importantly flexible, the Psion
WORKABOUT PRO 3 is a new
breed of handheld computer that
delivers the choice of numerous
hardware add-ons, software
applications and upgrades,
making it work as hard as you do.
The Flexible, Expandable, Rugged Handheld Computer
Makes the Most of Mobility
Created for the mobile worker, the WORKABOUT PRO 3 is ideal for employees across a
range of industries, including mobile field services, logistics, warehousing, transportation,
manufacturing and more. Its impressive flexibility enables you to supply one device to
meet many requirements; the WORKABOUT PRO 3 is built to be a key member of your
IT infrastructure.
The leading product in its category, the
WORKABOUT PRO 3 allows you to
get exactly the device that you need.
In addition, you have the opportunity to
get the add-ons you need today and the
ability to add more features at any point,
as business needs change.
The number of add-ons and software
applications you can attach is endless,
so whether it’s a camera for a traffic officer
or a GPS module used to track and trace
delivery locations – there is a solution for
every application.
Features & Benefits
As Adaptable As You Are
The hardware expansion slots of the
WORKABOUT PRO 3 make adding
new modules fast and easy – saving
significant time and money. And there’s
a whole range available – everything
from fingerprint scanners and passport
readers to RFID readers.
WiFi or GPRS; scanners, imagers and
RFID options – the WORKABOUT PRO 3
delivers next-generation modularity that
enables customers to easily configure their
device to suit a variety of applications
and tasks.
Plug in; bolt on, and achieve more on the
go. There’s no need to throw out a Psion
mobile device when business needs
change: customers can simply change
or add the necessary module to make it
more usable.
It Builds on Mobility
The WORKABOUT PRO 3’s Natural Task
Support™ means mobile workers get the
job done faster and more comfortably
since it’s purpose-built to the right level
of ruggedness, ergonomics and usability
for any environment.
It starts with a full-VGA display for finer
detail and easier readability, and an
ergonomic keypad designed for one-hand
operation. But it also comes down to
intangible things like the way it feels in
your hand.
Rugged Reliability
The WORKABOUT PRO 3 performs
wherever your work takes you. It’s
technology made tough. Built to withstand
multiple drops from six feet to concrete,
the WORKABOUT PRO 3 easily handles
shock and vibration. Its IP65 rating protects
it against dust and water sprayed from
all directions.
