Metrologic's ScanPal 2 is a light-weight portable data collection terminal designed for all-day everyday use. The compact design allows the user single handed operation ease of use and durability. A brightly lit LCD graphics screen with built-in contrast control allows the user to adjust the brightness of the screen enabling it to be read perfectly in all lighting conditions. The font size on the display can be specified as either small font (20x8 characters) or large font (15x4 characters). Using only 2 standard AAA batteries the ScanPal 2 provides over 100 hours of operation. The 1MB SRAM allows for approximately 50000 records to be stored in ScanPal 2's memory. Uploading the collected data is quick and easy via RS232 IR IrDA or Keyboard Wedge data transmission.
