Graphic display specialist Leach is helping customers reduce their carbon footprint with the launch of products with a strong sustainability message, like its new Eco-Screen HD fabric for back-lit displays, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Eco-Screen can be used in another of the company’s new products, the Leach Box illuminated display, which, thanks to the use of a ﬂexible lightsheet rather than a rigid dibond, can be rolled up and transported in the back of a car.
Stoop to Conker
British rugged mobile device brand Conker has added a 5.5in rugged smartphone to its ST range. The 4G-enabled ST50 offers businesses in the construction, engineering, hospitality, manufacturing and logistics sectors a durable alternative to expensive consumer devices. The ST50 can be bought for £399 or by monthly subscription.
New from home security specialist Moobox, the ProXT is a subscription-free, full HD outdoor security system. Its price of £117.77 includes one weatherproof, wirefree, battery-powered HD camera, providing four months of use on just one charge; a DVR/HUB with a 16GB memory card, which can support four additional cameras; and 7-day rolling cloud storage. The Wi-Fi camera has a 120-degree wide angle lens, two-way audio, a PIR motion sensor and infra-red night vision to 16 feet. As soon as it detects movement, the ProXT records 10, 15 or 30-second video clips and sends copies to the Moobox cloud where they can be viewed using the MooboxCam app.
Rugged range strengthened
Brother has added two new models to its RuggedJet range of mobile printers for field workers, transport and delivery operatives, ticketing assistants, retailers and warehouse workers. Producing output up to four inches wide, the RJ-4230B and RJ-4250WB offer more connectivity options, extra memory, improved battery life and a new Mobile Deploy feature that enables users to update software remotely. Protected by a rubber housing, the printers are IP54-certified against water spray and dust penetration and have drop test protection up to 2.1 metres.
TCL Communication is bringing out an all-new version of the iF DESIGN AWARD-winning BlackBerry KEY2 smartphone. The limited edition BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition features a deep red Aluminum frame (Series 7), with black accents covering the textured back and BlackBerry keyboard.
Born to roam
Skyroam Solis enables commuters, business travellers and tourists to stay connected to the internet in more than 130 countries. Providing super-fast 4G LTE internet connectivity for up to five devices simultaneously, the combined hotspot and 6,000 mAh power bank can be bought for £135 or rented for £9 per day. Subscription options include a 24h day pass, a monthly plan or payment per GB.
Popular with IT resellers
Riello UPS has added three models to its Sentinel Dual UPS range. Like the existing 5, 6, 8, and 10 kVA models, the SDU 4000, SDU 8000 TM and SDU 10000 TM are designed to handle high-density non-linear loads. This makes them ideal for protecting mission-critical IT networks and sever rooms, as well as electro-medical devices and industrial equipment. Riello UPS General Manager Leo Craig said: “Our SDU range is particularly popular with IT resellers who appreciate its versatility, proven performance and ease of use. These additions offer the same tried and trusted benefits, such as operating efficiency of up to 95%, user-replaceable hot-swappable batteries, and the option of installation as a freestanding tower or rack-mounted.”
Same performance, lower cost
Distributed organisations like restaurants, schools and retail outlets are among those likely to welcome the new AP125 access point from WatchGuard Technologies, which, when managed with WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud, benefits from sophisticated Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) technology. Ryan Orsi, director of product management for Wi-Fi at WatchGuard, says the 802.11ac Wave 2 access point offers signifcantly better performance than Wave 1 APs, without their high cost. “Wave 1 APs can’t provide the level of security, network resource distribution or scalability that organisations need, and most competing Wave 2 APs can’t automatically detect and prevent the six known Wi-Fi threat categories. This is extremely problematic for low traffic environments that still require secure, high performing Wi-Fi access,” he said. “Our new indoor AP offers industry leading security through our patented WIPS technology, performance and scalability, at a price that’s accessible for organisations of any size.”
