Elo Touch Solutions, a provider of interactive devices, has announced the launch of its latest handheld computer, the M50, which has the ability to scan, capture and collaborate on the go.

Featuring a 5.5-inch HD touch display, integrated 8 MP Camera, 2D barcode scanner and NFC, the handheld computer is powered by Android 10 and Google Mobile Services.

Furthermore, for durability the M50 includes corning gorilla glass, MIL-STD-810G drop specification and an IP-65 rating for water and dust ingress protection.

According to Elo, the M50 enables buy-online-and-pick-up-in-store and inventory management to pick-and-pack fulfilment, table service and clinical communication.

The device has been designed for use by retail, restaurant brands and manufacturers for applications from POS and self-order to endless aisle and automation.

The company added that the seamless integration, effortless provisioning and simplified device management for the M50 is possible via EloView or a third-party device-management platform.

Craig Witsoe, CEO at Elo, said: “We’re excited to welcome the powerful M50 mobile computer to our portfolio of world-class products, giving customers around the globe access to Google Mobile Services apps and tools to increase productivity throughout their workflows”

“And because the M50 is EloView-ready like all our Android-based devices, it is easy to secure, manage and deploy an entire fleet of Elo mobile and fixed interactive solutions using a single unified architecture.”

The M50 also comes with a raft of optional accessories including a docking station, expansion module, multi-unit device, battery chargers and hand strap.

Last month, Robotics & Innovation hosted a free-to-view webinar sponsored and delivered by Elo. The session explored how the company’s portfolio of interactive applications can make Industry 4.0 a reality in industrial operations.
