- Two 8250-compatible, PC-AT
standard RS-232 ports.
- Built-in KERMIT and XMODEM
file transfer protocols.
- High speed communications with
virtually any platform.
- RS-232 port compatibility with
barcode readers, optical meter probes, PLCs, survey total stations,
and other devices.

rugged display features:
- High-contrast, supertwist,
- 16 line by 25 character CGA
- Internal backlight and adjustable
contrast to ensure viewing in even the darkest conditions
- Multi-font mode supporting
15 font sizes.
Advanced Power Management and Speed
The PC5L-II uses Microsoft's Advanced Power Management® (APM) scheme to extend
battery life. APM's functions include:
- Puts the PC5L-II's components
to sleep when not in use, awakening when needed.
- Extends usage time to as much
as 2-3 days for typical applications.
- Built-in on-demand power meter
and low battery alert.
If extended outdoor power consumption
is a vital issue (more than 3 days), consider CMT's MC5
hand-held computer which utilizes the industry's best power management
design and runs up to two weeks between recharges.
No more long waits for your database search, file transfer or complex
The 16-bit AT bus of the PC5L-II completes a 16 bit memory instruction in
only 2 CPU clock cycles.
The PC5L-II is as much as 5 times faster than other 16-bit hand-held computers.
Memory and PCMCIA Support
Reliable, Flexible Data Storage
The PC5L-II comes standard with one "Flash"
EEPROM that you can use to store your program files, providing you with the maximum data
integrity available in a hand-held computer. Additional Flash EEPROM slot available on the mother board for installing an optional second Flash EEPROM.
- EEPROMs do not depend on battery
power, preventing program loss in the event of power depletion.
- Frees up available RAM for
maximum data storage.
- Program and update your Flash
EEPROMs (both to erase and to write data) with CMT's BURN-FS utility
and your PC5L-II. No other tools are required.
