Juniper’s Archer 2 rugged handheld now available in Europe

Juniper Systems has introduced the Archer 2, its latest generation rugged handheld, which comes with several key technological advancements. The device is now available in Europe for the first time.

The device incorporates a custom 4.3-inch ultra-bright display and advanced battery technology that allows use for up to 20 hours on one charge. Archer 2 also includes a glove-friendly numeric keypad, has a top IP68 rating for dust and water and has enhanced GPS capabilities.  

The Archer 2 is the first Juniper Systems handheld to feature a capacitive touchscreen for improved response. The special Illumiview high-visibility screen designed for outdoor use has been well received by reviewers. Juniper's field computers are designed for use by mobile workers in areas such as testing, surveying, field service and maintenance.  

Archer 2’s battery uses ‘Overtime Technology’ that provides longer runtime in cold temperatures using technology adapted from hybrid car batteries. The battery can last 20 hours, while still powering additional functions and connected accessories and holds a full charge much longer than traditional batteries. 

It also has superior quick-charge capability, which can be provided via a vehicle charger, allowing the battery to charge up to 70% capacity in as little as 45 minutes.

Like other Juniper Systems handhelds, the Archer 2 is built to very strict standards at its ISO 9001:2008-certified facility, having been tested to MIL-STD-810G and given a top IP68 rating for dust and water.
