Tokyo, August 29, 2018 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of the DT-X400 series of handheld terminals with Android OS Ver. 8.1. The DT-X400 series offers improved ease of use, thanks to design enhancements that make it handier for operators to hold the devices and input information.

The rounded form of the new DT-X400 models make for an easier grip and stress-free, comfortable operations. With trigger keys not only on the center-front and on the side but also on the back, 1D and 2D codes can be scanned to suit various operational needs. The new models also feature a newly adopted 3.2-inch high-definition LCD for improved screen visibility.

In addition to the high durability that makes Casio handheld terminals popular, such as the ability to withstand a drop from 3.0 meters, as well as IP67*1 dust and water proof compliance, the new DT-X400 provides a high level of basic operating performance such as a continuous operation time of 30 hours*2 for full-day operation. Also, the DT-X400-C21/WC21 are equipped with a camera and NFC. The DT-X400-WC21 can also connect to a wireless WAN, allowing operators in the transportation and other industries to transmit data in real time even outdoors. This model supports voice communication as well, for more efficient operations.

  • *1 Dust cannot penetrate the unit. When temporarily submerged with a constant water pressure, water will not penetrate the unit.
  • *2 Under the following conditions:
    Bar code read twice every 10 seconds and data received once, with wireless LAN module in power saving mode, backlight on, using FTP communication protocol.

In addition, the software to support installation and operation has also been enhanced. This includes tools to make settings easy to perform on multiple terminals and to run necessary business application software only.
