Geneq has released the SXPad 800H, a feature-packed, rugged handheld GPS data collector. The SXPad 800H is specifically designed for mobile GIS users in applications ranging from water, electric and gas utilities, transportation, mining, agriculture and forestry.
The 800MHz device is designed to give users all the power needed to work with maps and large data sets in the field. It is developed for rugged outdoor use, with a waterproof seal (IP65) and ability to survive a 1.5-metre drop to concrete. Its 3.7-inch colour touchscreen (full VGA) is sharp and is sunlight readable.
Standard features include an extra-long battery life of more than 12 hours on a charge, slots for MicroSD cards and SIM cards, and the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system.
The SXPad 800H offers features typically seen in more costly mobile devices, the company says, including GSM/GPRS cellular modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 5-megapixel camera, and an internal GPS receiver with external GPS antenna port. The SXPad 800H is optimised for GPS/GIS field data collection using its 1 to 3 metre accuracy internal GPS receiver or one of Geneq’s high-performance SXBlue GPS receivers for sub-metre and centimetre-level accuracy.
