- Model 2 - Ultra-Rugged Handheld System


From the hammer and anvil, the Archer 2 has emerged faster, smarter, and more sophisticated than ever before, claiming top spot among the most advanced rugged handhelds out there. Specifically designed to boost productivity and speed, the Archer 2 was made for professionals who don’t have time to mess around. Rest assured knowing you can rely on the Archer 2 to help get the work done, wherever your job takes you.

The Archer 2 incorporates all the best things about the Archer and adds to them. Featuring a new IllumiView™ high-visibility display, the Archer 2 remains extraordinarily bright under even the most glaring sunlight. You’ll love the responsiveness of its large, glove-friendly capacitive touchscreen and numeric keypad, allowing you to input data at unprecedented speeds. And for those work days that just seem to go on and on, you can trust that the Archer 2’s custom Overtime Technology™ battery will get you through, no problem. Add to this the signature ruggedness that Juniper Systems is known for, and you have one mean data-collecting machine that you can rely on, wherever your job takes you


That’s right—the Archer 2 has improved on nearly every aspect imaginable. Beginning with its enlarged IllumiView high-visibility display, its brightness knocks people off their feet when they see it. And its capacitive touchscreen provides for needle-sharp imagery and outstanding durability.

The Archer 2 also has improved connectivity capabilities, including enhanced GPS performance, improved photo and video capture, built-in 1D/2D barcode scanner, and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cell modem, serial, and USB connectivity features. The Archer 2 is a force to be reckoned with, right down to its speedy 1.0GHz processor that runs it all.


Built and tested to the most rigorous of standards, the Archer 2 was designed to be your reliable companion, wherever your job takes you. This tough handheld runs smoothly in everything from freezing cold to blistering heat. Carrying an IP68 rating and tested to MIL-STD-810G for water, humidity, sand and dust, vibration, altitude, shock, and temperature, the Archer 2 can handle just about anything you throw at it. We also have an Archer 2 Hazloc model available with Class I, II, & III, Division 2 certifications for hazardous locations.
