T8650 is the ultimate among enterprise grade feature rich rugged 8″ Windows 10 tablets. This is one tablet that delivers a superb ROI and has a whole range of accessories as well as a standard 3 year warranty. Options include 4G a fingerprint scanner, choice of 2 high capacity hot swap batteries and high performance 2D barcode imager (with optional pistol grip handle) make this a great tablet for use in the warehouse on the shop floor or in the field.
With the demands and uses for mobile computers growing, manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to improve their products and beat their competitors. In this blog we will take a quick look at how the latest Intel RealSense 3D camera technology is making it’s way into tablets. Keep a lookout for our second post that will cover the uses of tablets with 3D cameras.
Firstly, let’s take a look at what an Intel RealSense™ 3D camera is. RealSense camera technology uses a standard 2D camera for regular photo and video, along with an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. The infrared components allow RealSense technology to determine the distance between objects, separating objects from the background layers behind them and overall allowing for largely improved object, facial and gesture recognition over standard cameras.
At the point of writing this blog there are 3 different versions of Realsense 3D cameras, the F200, SR300 and the R200.
SR300 – The replacement for the F200, second generation Realsense technology allowed the camera to implement an infrared laser projector system, Fast VGA infrared camera, and a 2MP colour camera. Used in close range front facing applications, great for face tracking, motion detection and close depth detection. Listing the technical improvements over the first gen camera would take a while so in summary:
Support for Hand and person tracking modes.
Increased Range and Lateral Speed
Improved Colour Quality under Low-light Capture and Improved RGB Texture for 3D Scan
Improved Colour and Depth Stream Synchronization
Decreased Power Consumption
R200 – Intel RealSense™ Camera R200 is a long range peripheral 3D camera. While front facing technology can be applied into mobile devices, we are more likely to see it featured in a rear facing specification. This is the unit that most tablets will feature due to it offering more real world uses. This camera opens up the potential of 3D technology to a whole new industry, using the same fundamental Realsense technology as above it brings new tools to developers and users that can save time, automate processes and create detailed visuals like never before.
In our second blog we will take a look at the application for this camera, such as manufacturing plants road maintenance and in the medical field.
We feel this technology can play a big part in the real world, automating processes, giving more accurate readings and increasing overall workflow.
To learn more about the R200 Intel Realsense 3D Camera in Tablets take a look at the T8650 and T1150 or get in touch with us to arrange a webinar or meeting.
A true first in its class – a Rugged Tablet Scan Handle !. Our cordless, high-performance Bluetooth scan handle for the T8650 allows users to quickly scan 1D/2D barcode images while using a rugged 8″ Windows 10 Tablet at the same time. The handle attaches to the T8650 via a Snap Mount plate which comes standard on the device itself. The module is powered by a 2,000 mAh battery providing users 85 hours of continuous use. This attachment helps to leverage your investment in T8650 platform – read the review.
Rugged Tablet Scan Handle includes:
Scan Handle module.
Two rechargeable batteries.
Two charging cables – Micro USB to USB.
To get a better understanding of how the Scan Handle works take a look at the short video and check out all the specs on the T8650 page. The Scanning process uses a high performance digital imager scan engine to read in codes in the most fast and efficient way. This can all have a significant impact on inventory operations where a large number of barcodes need to be scanned and access to a larger than PDA screen is preferred.
