Enterprise Class Mobility and a Rugged Industrial Design

Bluebird's EF500R, designed with the latest display technology, is their most rugged 5-inch touch mobile computer to date. The EF500R combines premium enterprise class mobility and rugged industrial design for use outdoors and in harsh industrial environments.

Durable and scratch resistant
EF500R’s compact, lightweight design incorporates Bluebird’s proprietary TankSmith™ technology producing a 7ft 10in drop specification and an IP67 rating that protects it from water and dust. The 5-inch, high definition multi-touch display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 making it exceptionally resistant to scratches and deep chips.

Ergonomic, single-handed operation
With a weight of only 12 oz, including the extended battery, EF500R is ergonomically designed for comfortable, single-handed operation. The multi-touch display can be operated with stylus, fingertips, or gloves - even if the display is wet. Sun glare protection improves the display’s readability in direct sunlight and the anti-fingerprint coating protects from smears.

Multi-OS support
EF500 supports multiple operating systems including Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android 6.x Marshmallow, and Windows 10 IoT Mobile Enterprise.  In addition, Bluebird can assist with customization of the operating system to enhance security, simplify deployment, and reduce support costs.

1-D and 2-D scanning
EF500R has an imager that rapidly reads 1-D and 2-D barcodes, and it also features a 13 MP camera for taking pictures and capturing signatures.

Full-voice capabilities with push to talk
EF500R comes with full voice capabilities including noise cancelling, speakerphone, and push to talk, which enable more efficient communication among employees whether it is one-to-one or one-to-many.

Efficient power management
EF500R uses several power saving technologies and has an extended battery producing a superior battery cycle.  It also supports hot swapping for uninterrupted service.

Extended product life cycle
When purchasing a Bluebird product, you can be sure that the product will be supported for several years to come.
