Configure your MC5 for as
much as 8.96 Megabytes!!
Each MC5 hand-held
computer comes standard with 384K RAM for application run-time
memory and data storage. For applications that need even larger storage
requirements, this memory can be optionally expanded with:
- Plug-in 128 kilobyte RAM Modules
- Plug in 128 kilobyte EPROM
- Internal RAMDISKs - 1 Megabyte,
2 Megabyte, 4 Megabyte and 8 Megabyte
System and Programming Languages
ROS is a powerful operating
(ROM Operating System) is a DOS-like operating system. ROS uses familiar
DOS commands like DIR, CD, COPY, DEL, VIEW, RUN, DATE, TIME, etc. Features
of the ROS include:
in many popular PC languages -- GWBASIC, dBASE III, Lotus 1-2-3, and
- Low-overhead - CMT-ROS,
the operating system and application programs do not have to be copied
into system RAM to run, reducing RAM requirements.
- Long battery life -
CMT-ROS's built-in power management system extends the MC5's battery
life to weeks rather than days or hours.
- CMT-ROS can be operated in
both MENU and COMMAND LINE modes. It also features multiple pop-up windows,
built-in alarm management and script (batch) file control commands.
CMT-ROS supports TEXT, TINY TEXT and GRAPHICS MODE.
For a true MS-DOS 5.0 platform
and 100% Intel CPU compatibility, take a look at our PC5L.
The MC5 is a versatile
data collector and can be configured for a variety of entry needs!
- Key directly through
the MC5's water-proof, tactile 55-key keyboard
- Dual (Com1 and Com2) DB9 RS-232
- Enter data through a bar code
reader or other dimensional measurement device
- Standard Kermit and XMODEM
file transfer protocols built-in
- Communicate with PCs, mini
or mainframe computers, printers, plotters and modems
The MC5 can capture bar code data
with either a wand, a regular or long-distance laser scanner or CCD scanner.
A powerful built-in "ctty" wedge command allows you to read
entries from these devices just as if they were typed in from the keypad
