Logan, UT, Oct 10, 2014 – This week at the INTERGEO Conference, Juniper Systems caused a stir of excitement with the announcement of their newest rugged handheld computer—the Allegro 2™. The handheld is the latest in the company’s well-reputed Allegro product line, “with every bit of reliability,” the company says, “but now with some major advancements.”
According to Juniper Systems, the Allegro 2 was “designed for the data-intensive,” with meticulous attention paid to the engineering and design of the handheld in order to maximize efficiency and precision, both of which are critically important aspects to high-volume data collection.
Among its list of new improvements, the Allegro 2 now features a newly designed keyboard in a QWERTY & numeric layout, with large, glove-friendly buttons for rapid—even non-visual—data entry. The new handheld features a custom Sun-to-Shade™ display—20% larger than the previous Allegro—which offers excellent visibility in any lighting conditions. The Allegro 2 is powered by a new, Overtime Technology™ battery, providing an amazing 20+ hours of runtime—extra security for long use in-between charges. And the touchscreen now utilizes capacitive technology, providing excellent durability, as well as crystal-clear imagery and greater sensitivity to touch. All of that, plus significantly enhanced GNSS performance, extended Bluetooth® range, camera & video options, and a more powerful processor make the Allegro 2 an ideal tool for high-volume data collection.
“The Allegro 2 is our next-generation product, and it includes all of the latest enhancements available in its sister product, the Archer 2™,” said John Florio, Product Manager at Juniper Systems. “The Allegro 2 was built from the ground up, based on user feedback on the jobs they have to do. Whether the customer is grading lumber in a log scaling yard, running a robotic total station, or performing a close-interval pipeline survey, the Allegro 2 is the best solution for the field today.”
The Allegro 2 is scheduled to begin shipping next month. To learn more about the Allegro 2, or to request a quote, please visit www.junipersys.com/allegro2.
