Handheld Launches the All-New Rugged Nautiz eTicket Pro II for the Public Transport Market

February 18, 2014

Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers and smartphones, today announced the launch of its brand-new Nautiz eTicket Pro II rugged handheld. The Nautiz eTicket Pro II is a compact handheld computer specifically developed for mobile workers in the public transport sector.

Handheld's brand-new e-ticketing device, the Nautiz eTicket Pro II, enables efficient and reliable data collection in the toughest of environments. It is an efficient tool for electronic fare collection and ticket validation, specifically developed for professionals in the public transportation sector. Over the years, Handheld has provided state of the art e-ticketing products for public transport authorities in Melbourne, Prague and Helsinki, and for the national railways in Sweden and the Netherlands.

Nautiz eTicket Pro II is a compact and lightweight ergonomic handheld computer, yet rugged to handle rough treatment in the field. It carries an IP65 Ingress Protection rating, which means that it is impervious to dust and highly resistant to water — the unit can be used in dusty work environments as well as in heavy rain, and can be rinsed off if dirty. It also meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military test standards for overall durability and resistance to humidity, shock, vibration, drops, salt and extreme temperatures.

Measuring only 156 x 74 x 25.5 millimeters (6.1 x 2.9 x 1.0 inches) and weighing a mere 335 grams (11.8 ounces), the Nautiz eTicket Pro II is a true ergonomic work tool and one of the thinnest and lightest handheld computers in the rugged-device sector. It features a high-brightness, sunlight-readable resistive touchscreen for reliable computing in challenging worksite environments, and comes complete with a 2D imager for super-fast and accurate scanning and barcoding tasks. The device also features a 5MP camera with auto focus and LED Flash. It has a built-in advanced contactless smart-card reader from Arcontia for secure cashless transactions and ticket validations.

"There is a growing need for sophisticated mobile computing solutions in the public transport sector, products that are both customer friendly with swift and easy ticket transactions as well as ergonomic and user-friendly for the field professionals," said Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. "For this, we are proud to introduce the Nautiz eTicket Pro II, a new rugged handheld computer that merges ultimate mobility with true field functionality in a handy package and at a very attractive price. We are confident that the Nautiz eTicket Pro II will be the obvious choice for mobile workers in the public transport sector."

The Nautiz eTicket Pro II rugged handheld computer has an integrated u-blox GPS receiver that provides professional-grade navigation functionality. This handheld also offers multiple connectivity options, such as high-powered 3G and excellent Wi-Fi capability. It has a high-speed 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of flash memory, and it runs Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5, the operating system of choice for professional users in the targeted industries, which includes Microsoft Office Mobile.

The Nautiz eTicket Pro II is built on the same platform as the newly launched Nautiz X4, Handheld's new multipurpose compact handheld computer built for the mobile worker.

The Nautiz eTicket Pro II will be unveiled and showcased at the annual IT-TRANS conference in Karlsruhe, Germany on February 18-20. The media is welcome to contact Handheld for interviews and demonstrations. Orders for the new product can be placed immediately, for delivery at the end of March.
