Juniper Systems releases Archer 3 Rugged Handheld

09th April 2019

The next-generation Archer 3 Rugged Handheld runs Android and it is available for purchase, Juniper Systems announced today.

Packed with a robust processor and upgraded battery, memory, and storage capacity, the Archer 3 is the most powerful of the bestselling Archer handhelds to date. Six years after the release of the Archer 2 Rugged Handheld, the Archer 3 boasts a 290 percent increase in RAM at 2GB, double the flash storage at 16GB, a 12,000 milliampere-hour battery, and 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor.

Running Android 7.1, nicknamed Nougat, the Archer 3 is the first Archer series rugged handheld to integrate the world’s foremost mobile operating system.

“Pocket-sized data collection just got an upgrade,” said Jeff Delatore, the Archer product manager at Juniper Systems. “It’s the same beloved Archer – but faster, more capable, and running on an accessible operating system most people have on their phone.”

The Archer 3 features the same field-tested rugged touchscreen, keyboard, and ergonomic body of the Archer 2. It is rated IP68 and meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810G, making the device waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof. The rugged handheld operates in temperatures between -22 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-30-60C).

“It’s still an Archer,” Juniper Systems VP of sales and marketing Nate Holman said, “but we’ve made improvements that make it an even more formidable data collector.”

The Archer 3 also integrates Smart Ready Bluetooth and high-sensitivity GPS with its u-blox M8 GNSS engine. The Archer series is utilized in a wide variety of industries, including forestry and oil and gas.
