Different layouts of the M2Key keypad module enable optimal manual data entry. The M2Temperature unit provides an infrared sensor for the measuring of surface temperatures and a penetration probe to measure core temperatures. The M2Safety enables emergency stops and is particularly made for industrial applications. M2Connect provides additional USB and round plug interfaces. Also available are a printer module for labels and tags and a payment module for mobile checkout solutions. With the patented slide-in mechanism, the units can be attached and detached without tools. Additionally, there is a pistol grip available for scan-intensive use.
