TouchStar launches the rugged TS8200 and TS7200: The next generation in Android handheld and truck mounted devices

UK-based manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, TouchStar Technologies, has announced the latest addition to the TS Series product suite, the android TS8200 handheld and TS7200 truck mounted terminal.  

Powered by the latest high-speed processor technology and the next generation in mobile operating systems – Android, the TS8200 and TS7200 rugged mobile computers provide the ideal hardware solution for warehouse and logistics-based applications. With both devices maintaining the robust credentials of the previous TS series, the combination of high impact polycarbonate plastics, metal alloy chassis and the use of Sorbothane rubber shock absorbers allow for an extremely reliable solution and prolonged life within robust environments.  

Both devices allow users with mobile access to web-oriented applications and VT emulation, streamlining operations for increased productivity and accuracy.  Available with an array of communication options, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and 3G/4G, users stay connected wherever they are and whatever task they are performing.


Designed in conjunction with TouchStar’s extensive user base, the latest generation in the TS8000 series, the “TS8200” further enhances the existing 8000 product range with a lighter and more ergonomically designed mobile computer.

The highly durable hard capped keys are optimally positioned to provide ultimate user comfort in scan intensive environments. The dynamic data collection capabilities of the high-resolution speed laser scanner and advanced imaging technology allow for both close range and extreme long-range scanning capability. Not only this, the availability of a hot swappable battery guarantees continuous operation and reduced downtime, maximising output and increasing workload efficiency.

Providing excellent visibility in all lighting conditions, the TS8200’s rugged touchscreen combines with the high-performance of the colour 5M pixel camera to provide startling productivity and efficiency gains for all supply chain scenarios. 


TouchStar designers have worked hard to achieve a high level of ruggedness to ensure that the TS7200 withstands the most extreme environments. Designed to be versatile within all warehouse and logistics operations, the TS7200 provides a robust, user-friendly mounting solution, allowing the terminal to be perfectly positioned for the user across all makes of forklift truck and material handling equipment. 

Replacing the “prone to damage” physical keyboard with a fully capacitive QWERTY keyboard, the TS7200 integrates an easy to use, robust touchscreen input that is fully resistant to contaminants such as dust, oil and water.  Combined with the high definition graphics and keyboard the TS7200 provides outstanding readability in both direct sunlight and all ambient lighting conditions making it the perfect overall solution for harsh and demanding environment.
