Paperless documentation is a valuable improvement, particularly in pharmaceutical production. The terminal is connected to the printer being used over Ethernet; alternatively the data may be transported via a USB port or on a CD or Compact Flash card. The Windows XP Embedded operating system is also provided on Compact Flash, and a hard disc can therefore be omitted. Power is supplied by means of an integrated battery and charging unit and it is therefore not necessary to use a power cable.
The terminal can easily be upgraded to wireless technology.
