DAP Technologies Announces CE3000B Handheld for Security & Access Control

Tempe, AZ- DAP Technologies today announced the availability of the DAP CE3000B Security.

The DAP CE3000B is a lightweight, rugged handheld computer that integrates the latest methods for physical access control in a portable form factor that operates in harsh field environments. Weighing only one pound, the computer provides fast, reliable Personal Identification Verification (PIV) for perimeter access control at checkpoints utilizing a "fast fingerprint" reader, scanner or smart card reader.

With a field replaceable battery, the CE3000B can operate for more than full day on a single charge and can perform personal identity verification in temporary disaster management areas or on a permanent basis in field applications-both in a disconnected mode or wirelessly. Employee IDs, E-Passports and other access cards can be easily swiped or scanned on site. Other features include a highly ergonomic 22-key keypad and an environmentally-sealed speaker, with record and playback features.

"Roper Mobile Technology Companies have a long history of developing rugged, flexible and modular computing solutions that make sensors and data available in harsh environments. This is especially critical for emergency management professionals and government, military and industrial organizations that face unpredictable scenarios which require responsiveness on a moment's notice," said Eugene Yazbak, President of Roper Mobile Technology.

"The DAP CE3000B is our latest security product and part of our long-standing commitment to providing reliable and rugged tools for security personnel," he continued. "Today, our vehicle mount computers are deployed at checkpoints and port terminals and we continue to develop our other rugged platforms with customizable features specifically for customers who need to secure locations through authentication."

A Windows CE 5.0 solution with an Intel XScale Bulverde processor, the DAP CE3000B is the only fully rugged handheld solution available today with a modular, upgradeable design. This unique "End Cap" Technology offers advanced and interchangeable features for authentication that can adapt with specific applications and can lower the cost of technology investment and long-term service. End Caps easily attach to the handheld. Options include:

o Biometric "Fast Fingerprint" reader
o 1D/2D Scanner or Laser Scanner
o Smart Card Reader: contact & contactless

Adhering to the strictest military standards of MIL-SPEC 810F for shock, vibration and extreme temperatures, the DAP CE3000B can withstand the most challenging outdoor environments. The base unit is IP-67 sealed, which indicates that it can be submerged and operate in one meter of water for 30 minutes. The ruggedness of the solution can lead to lower failure rates and less downtime in critical applications.
