Socket Mobile expands DuraCase line

Socket Mobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCKT), an innovator of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity, has announced it has expanded its DuraCase line to better support the commercial services and transportation industries, the company said.

Socket Mobile´s scanner-sled solution, DuraCase, is a protective case which combines an Apple or Samsung handheld, smart device with a SocketScan® 800 series scanner into a single, one-handed solution. The DuraCase integrates connectors from both scanner and smart device for dual charging and features rubberized material for increased drop protection and durability. Ideal for mobile workers, commercial services and transportation markets that are looking to use a handheld device with a scanner.

The new Vehicle Charging Dock was created for convenience and ease of use. Developed in conjunction with Ram Mount, a world-leading manufacturer of premier charging and mounting solutions, the Vehicle Charging Dock is perfect for keeping both the scanner and device charged. The Vehicle Charging Dock is placed in a secure, safe location within reach in the automobile, allowing easy access to GPS and other functions. Great for workers on the go, in and out of vehicles and for those who can´t afford interruption in their daily work flow due to a low battery.

The Vehicle Charging solution is the ideal complement to the desk charger or the multi-bay charger Socket Mobile provides for charging in warehouses, offices and homes. All the charging solutions feature magnetic contacts for ease of docking. Also, Socket Mobile provides a DuraCase Holster with a rotating belt clip for workers who need hands-free capability with a convenient and secure resting place for their devices. In addition, with a lanyard, the scanner and device are always handy and accessible.

Socket Mobile is a provider of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity in workforce mobilization. Socket Mobile´s revenue is primarily driven by the deployment of third party barcode enabled mobile applications that integrate Socket Mobile´s cordless barcode scanners and contactless reader/writers.
