Shop Floor Barcoding with RCA Cambio Tablet

Review of RCA® Cambio®  (scroll down to video)

This is a nice little tablet for manufacturing time tracking. The Cambio® is inexpensive and simple. It runs Windows 10 Home, so you may need to upgrade it to connect to your domain. But it will connect directly to your network with Wi-Fi. You can run Standard Time® BC for barcode scanning. The Cambio is not powerful enough for daily Facebook but it’s great for barcoding on the shop floor, which is what this video describes. I.e. manufacturing time tracking.

In the video, the Cambio® is shown connected to a barcode scanner through a USB hub. That allows a mouse to connect as well (all peripherals sold separately).

Since the tablet connects to your network through USB, it can talk directly to your corporate database. In the example in the video, a program named “BC” is used for scanning, and it talks directly to SQL on a server.

The screen is detachable, and a virtual keyboard may be used in Windows 10. That allows the tablet to be bolted to the wall and not handled to prevent breakage. In a setup like that, the tablet should last indefinitely even in the harshest manufacturing environments.

Consider downloading Standard Time® for your manufacturing time tracking.
