Psion Teklogix Ends Condensation Frustration in Freezer Environments

Mississauga, ON, -- Psion Teklogix (LSE: PON), a global leader in rugged mobile computing devices and wireless LAN system implementation and support, today announced the industry's first heated scan window on freezer hand-held computers. The new Frost Free Scanner (FFS) allows for fast, reliable and accurate scanning of barcodes without condensation on the scan window. This enhancement enables cold chain workers to move between cold and warmer environments without the scan window fogging. The result is improved reliability, performance, efficiency and productivity for all cold chain applications.

Psion Teklogix has the industry's most extensive line of mobile computing devices for cold chain environments. The freezer product line is engineered to perform in freezer condensing environments and can operate from 122F (50C) to 22F (-30C). Pioneers in the field, Psion Teklogix was the first to introduce a heated hand-held computer and heated LCD as well as the first company to use laboratory testing to harden terminals for freezer environments.

"The number one complaint from mobile workers in refrigerated environments is that condensation on the scan windows of their mobile devices slows down productivity," said Dan Schachtler, director of product management, Psion Teklogix. "The launch of the Frost Free Scanner reinforces Psion Teklogix's commitment to providing the cold chain with leading-edge, industry-specific technology solutions."

The Frost Free Scanner, initially available in the 7035 freezer-rated hand-held computer, adds to the existing benefits of Psion Teklogix's freezer product line that includes durability and resistance to water as well as internal heaters that eliminate frozen keyboards and display failures. FFS technology is ideal for freezer and refrigerated environments as well as inclement outdoor settings such as ports, yards and airports.

Psion Teklogix is a global provider of rugged mobile devices and wireless LAN systems and support to the enterprise. For more information, visit
