 CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Norand Corporation (NASDAQ: NRND), a leading supplier of portable computer and wireless radio frequency (RF) systems, announced the introduction of the hand- held RT/DT1700 Radio Data Terminal. Believed to be the industry's first truly modular and ergonomic industrial radio frequency terminal, the environmentally sealed RT/DT1700 is designed for rugged use in harsh industrial environments.
 Common applications for the RT/DT1700 include manufacturing, warehousing and distribution center settings where personnel are storing, retrieving, moving, shipping or otherwise processing materials. Wireless hand-held terminals like those offered by Norand allow real- time, bi-directional communication of data to a host computer to record transactions and receive instructions involving the movement of goods and materials.
 The RT/DT1700 offers batch, UHF (ultra high frequency), SST (spread spectrum transmission) and scanning capabilities simply by changing modules. Completely compatible with existing NORAND(R) RT1100 terminal modules and functionality, the RT/DT1700 allows a wide choice of integrated scanning options.
 The modularity built into the NORAND radio frequency product line provides tremendous flexibility. For instance, the RT1100 may be selected for applications requiring a smaller size, lighter weight and less information displayed. The 1700 is designed for applications where larger amounts of displayed information and extreme ruggedness are required.
 The NORAND RT/DT1700 terminal features several unique design elements:
 -- The adjustable display is the brightest and largest in the industry.
 -- The terminal's innovative battery management system virtually eliminates interruptions, enabling the terminal to operate from one to two work shifts without recharging.
 -- The unique, dedicated scan trigger, positioned on the keyboard, allows operation much like a TV remote control or garage door opener.
 -- The terminal can be mounted on a fork lift by adding a vehicle communications adapter.
 -- Multiple processors in the terminal provide fast performance and enhanced system distributed processing capability.
