Product Release: AML Adds the Triton Handheld Terminal to Its Product Line

New wireless unit combines best-in-class features with familiar functionalities of previous legacy model

January 2, 2014, Euless, TX: AML, a leading manufacturer of barcode and data collection products, has unveiled the Triton (buy here from Legacy Technology Services), a rugged but cost-effective wireless handheld terminal designed specifically for terminal emulation applications. This powerful new device combines the familiar functionalities of the previous generation model with updated features, including a rugged, high-visibility backlit LCD display, the latest in Wi-Fi radio technology from Summit Data Communications, a more durable keypad and more.

The new Triton features a backlit LCD display, lit with a bright white backlight. The screen is highly visible in any conditions—full sun, dim or dark--the clarity and visibility of the Triton display is unparalleled.

The handheld is also equipped with an enterprise class Summit radio with 802.11 b/g/n connectivity. This best-in-class radio provides a crystal clear medium for industrial Wi-Fi communications.

The Triton’s keypad is protected with clear epoxy domed tops for improved durability. The added layer of protection makes the keys impervious to abrasive wear that could cause them to become illegible or nonfunctional.

The new handheld terminal also features the newest barcode scan engine technology from Motorola, the SE965, which supports near and mid-range scanning distances.

“The Triton includes all of the hardware enhancements that our clients expect in a next generation handheld but we took a practical approach that customers will appreciate,” said Mike Kearby, president, AML. “AML has a reputation for providing cost-effective hardware with unmatched at its price point. We are proud to introduce our newest handheld, which empowers users with the newest features and improvements for a price that is in line with their older model.”

Similar to the previous generation model, the M7220, the Triton can be quickly deployed with minimal configuration time and little or no training. It also includes all of the features users enjoy in the M7220, including built-in terminal emulation clients for VT100/220, TN5250 and TN3270.

Clients who already use current AML batteries and charging equipment with the M7220 do not need to purchase new ones. The Triton uses the same 19.2 watt-hour battery as its predecessor and will work with the same charging accessories and spare batteries.

The Triton includes multiple interface options and can switch between a graphical-based menu system and a text-based menu system, depending on the user’s preference.
