Built-in high-performance scanner

A built-in high speed laser scanner is provided as standard with the latest decoder capable of reading all types of industry standard 1D barcode symbologies. Higher resolution (0.127 mm) and improved scanning distance (450 mm maximum) ensure great accuracy of bar code reading. In addition, a scan width control (laser beam swing angle control) function is included to prevent the misreading of adjacent bar codes. For “scan complete” confirmation, a large green LED, vibrator, or beep or any combination of these can be selected according to your working environment.

Two models are available to suit different applications: DT-930M50E has a downward scanning angle and DT-930M51E has a straight scanning angle.

Full software and cradle compatibility with DT-900 series

Applications developed for the existing Casio DT-900 series handheld terminal, which has been widely deployed in the scanning-based vertical markets, can be easily ported to the DT-930 series thanks to a high degree of software compatibility. Besides software compatibility, the DT-960IOE Basic Cradle and DT-964IOE Satellite Cradle for the DT-900 series can also be used with the DT-930 series.

This not only preserves your investment in software and some of the dedicated peripherals, but also allows the DT-930 series to be used in conjunction with the DT-900 series in mixed deployments.

Large memory

In addition to 4MB of RAM, the DT-930 has a 16 MB F-ROM storage area which can be used for the backup of applications and data. This prevents the loss of data if the user allows the battery to completely run down.

Robust and durable

The DT-930 is designed and built to withstand harsh working environments. No adverse effects to its operation should be experienced when dropped from 1.8 meters in height to a concrete floor. It features excellent dust and water-splash protection that meets the requirements for the IP54 level of the International IEC60529 standard. The DT-930 can also operate in severe temperatures within the range -20°C to 50°C.

Improved ease of use and visibility

The large keys with a responsive click touch enable error-free key operations even when the user is wearing gloves. Backlit keys are employed to enable keypad operation in poor lighting conditions. The STN display, which includes a phase compensation film, provides maximum brightness and can display large fonts, which greatly improves screen visibility. In addition, a large 3-color LED in either green, blue or red can vividly light up to indicate an event. All these features help to ensure comfortable use for long periods even in dark environments.

Integrated Bluetooth for wireless communications

The latest version of Bluetooth is integrated as standard in all models to allow wireless communications with portable Bluetooth label printers (such as ASP’s Piccolo), greatly improving efficiency and flexibility. For example, you can print shelf edge labels on a belt printer right in front of a shelf in your store.

Long battery life, two-way power supply

An exceptionally long period of continuous operation has been achieved (approx. 200 hours with two AA-size alkaline batteries), thanks to the power-saving design and effective power-management features employed in the DT-930 series. Furthermore, the DT-930 provides a choice of power source: two AA-size alkaline batteries or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

“The staff of ASP are always most helpful and professional and this is important to me as a customer.”

Barwon Health partners with ASP Microcomputers and Maxus to deliver an around-the-clock RFID book lending service to patrons.

“The result was first-class. We could not fault ASP on this project. They have a logical, systematic approach to system development that inspires confidence. We needed software and equipment that would deliver speed and reliability, and ASP has achieved that for us. There
are particular challenges in the use of RFID in self-service installations and ASP developed a robust system precisely meeting our requirements. Their thorough practical knowledge of all components of the software and hardware meant that any problems that arose were rapidly resolved.”
