Intelligent Instrumentation Expands .NET Data Collection Terminal Offering with Handheld - LANpoint Mobile

TUCSON, AZ - March 21, 2005 - Intelligent Instrumentation, a leading manufacturer of rugged networked and wireless data collection terminals designed to improve the performance of supply-chain execution applications, announces the newest addition to their LANpoint family of Windows CE.NET / Intel® X-Scale®-based rugged data collection terminals with the handheld terminal - LANpoint Mobile. This vertical quarter-screen handheld terminal is a rugged and flexible system that offers portable data capture solutions in demanding manufacturing and warehousing applications.

"With the introduction of the LANpoint Mobile handheld terminal, Value Added Resellers, System Integrators and end users can now cover a broad range of applications with just one terminal and handheld vendor. Customers can select one of our vehicle mount terminals for pallet picks and put-aways, use our rugged stationary terminals for shop floor control or production tracking, and then equip their distribution center personnel with our new LANpoint Mobile handheld data collection terminal for 'pick and run' applications," says Paul Liska, Data Collection Product Manager for Intelligent Instrumentation. "Support and training costs are also minimized, because developers have to support only one operating system, and the warehouse workers only have to learn one application 'look and feel' on our devices."

With its embedded Windows CE.NET operating system, customers will have built-in access to Microsoft's .NET Compact framework, with all of its associated tools and management features, which will greatly simplify software application development.
