Eurotech Developers Earn Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 Certification

Amaro May 29, 2008 – The Eurotech Group announces today that five engineers are now certified as Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Developer, based on passing the Microsoft exam. These developers join the team of hundreds of Eurotech engineers working on innovations in pervasive and embedded computing based on Microsoft Embedded Windows technologies.

The Microsoft Certified Technologies Specialist (MCTS) certification is one way that Eurotech’s clients can tell they are getting first class engineering support for designs, whether they are custom or standard products. This recognition is best viewed in combination with the work done across several subsidiaries of the Eurotech Group to win multiple Microsoft Windows Embedded partner awards over the past five years.

Zypad Ring Scanner for 1D & 2D barcodes (ZRS-2D)

Eurotech presents the new ZRS-2D a wearable scanner for 1D & 2D barcodes. The ZRS-2D is connected to the Zypad wearable computer through a stretchable coiled cable which assures maximum freedom of movement.

Designed to be as flexible as possible, the ZRS-2D incorporates a swivel system to allow users to rotate the scanner on their preferred hand. A finger strap allows flexible, ergonomic and fast positioning of the ring scanner on the finger. User hygiene is assured through a removable finger strap, enabling each operator to use a personal strap.
The unit’s software emulates manual keystrokes and provides the scanned data into any active application. It’s also possible to add prefixes/suffixes such as carriage returns or line feeds to eliminate manual keystrokes.
The ZRS-2D combined with the Zypad wearable computer gives users a hands-free, lightweight solution that can be worn for long periods of time, while maintaining network connectivity (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth).
The 2D ring scanner includes a powerful “area imager” device which captures the image of the barcode in any orientation. Therefore the user does not need to turn the finger or the barcode for reading.

The main symbologies read are:
– Data Matrix
– PDF 417
– Maxicode
– QR code

Now, with this new accessory, Zypad can offer a complete wearable hands-free scanning solution which includes both 1D and 2D barcode readers.
