Robust Android mobile computer with a 2D scanner
The SM15 from M3 Mobile is a robust mobile computer in a smartphone look. It comes from the factory equipped with Android 7.1 (Nougat) and stands out with its rapid initial training, simple handling and enhanced battery operation time. Thanks to its integrated 2D barcode scanner, it especially quickly pays for itself in incoming goods, logistics and sales. But even those who work in the field or customer service will immediately appreciate the versatile device.
Because the mobile computer supports Android, it is ideal for employees who scan large numbers of barcodes: using a familiar and easy-to-use interface simplifies processes and increases productivity. In addition, the operating system gives department heads the ability to install a custom app selection for employees. In other words, the SM15 has the potential to be a helpful assistant in all situations of everyday professional life. It is a fully fledged mobile office that may be stowed away in your pocket. But what about its robustness?
The conditions in places where goods are delivered and stored are usually anything but optimal for electronics. That's why M3 Mobile has deliberately given the SM15 a high degree of robustness: a practical protective cover secures the mobile computer against dust and moisture according to IP65 standards, and gives it fall protection up to 1.8 m. In addition, the full HD display is covered with scratch and impact-resistant Gorilla glass. Nevertheless, it is easy to use, with a pen as well as with gloves, and even with wet fingers. Employees in incoming goods or dispatch warehouses are therefore not forced to cumbersomely remove their protective gloves every time they want to operate the SM15. Instead, they work comfortably and productively with their mobile office and, at the same time, get more done - a win-win situation for everyone involved!
Of course, reliability requires more than robust housing. Therefore, the SM15 is equipped with LCD backlighting. The advantage? The brilliant colors and sharp images on the 5'' display are viewable even under the most unfavorable lighting conditions - for example, when working in the outdoors in bright sunshine. The resolution is a full 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
The device is available in three versions: the SM15W features a 2.0 GHz Octa-Core processor, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB Flash memory, plus a 13 megapixel auto-focus rear camera. The SM15N has all this plus WWAN 4G and GPS. And the SM15X offers a 2.2 GHz Octa-Core processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB Flash memory, as well as two cameras: with 16 megapixels on the rear and 5 megapixels on the front. As needed, you expand the internal memory up to 128 GB via a microSD card. If required, expand the internal memory by microSD card up to 128 GB. Other optional features include a GPS module that allows field staff to instantly determine their current location - using the same device they use for their remaining work. An RFID reader may also be installed on the SM15 for non-contact, automatic interaction and localization of objects equipped with RFID chips.
Thanks to the long lifespan of the lithium-ion battery, users continue to use the SM15 for a wide variety of tasks without interruption, even during long shifts: scanning goods, checking availabilities, looking up order data, exchanging information and more. For emergencies, the battery is replaceable during operation (hot-swap function) without switching off the device. If necessary, you receive an enhanced battery with longer battery life.
