MDE devices

What is an MDE device?

MDE devices are used in logistics for mobile data collection and analysis. In terms of functionality, MDE devices fulfill almost the same purpose as tablets or mobile phones in private use. New data can be entered and existing data retrieved by touch or with a stylus.

Devices for mobile data acquisition are connected to the central data processing system either via infrared, radio or an acoustic coupler. This means that the stored data can be called up at any time and from anywhere in real time. Data transmission is also possible via WLAN or the mobile data network.

Where are MDE devices used?

In logistics, MDE devices are mainly used in warehouses. Here they are used to record and also display current data on the stored goods. Some models also have an integrated scanner, which means they can be used for order picking work. But they can also be used in other business processes:
