The JS 600 FieldBook™ is a rugged, economical
data collection computer. Information is entered
directly into the FieldBook where it is stored in a
spreadsheet format eliminating the need for paper
data sheets. The FieldBook accepts both hand-keyed
data and readings from digital sensors, bar code
wands, and RS-232C devices.
JS 600 Features:
- The JS 600 can be programmed to perform
mathematical calculations on data, make decisions
based on data received, search or sort through
your data file, automatically record data at
either preset intervals or in response to an
event, and record the date and time.
- Data can be transferred directly to a
computer, printer or modem eliminating
time-consuming, error-prone manual data reduction
and keyboard entry.
- The JS 600 is rugged and sealed from moisture
and dust. It weighs less than 2 pounds.
- The full alphanumeric keyboard has keys large
enough for gloved hands.
- The JS 600 is equipped with 4 digital inputs,
3 digital outputs, and an RS-232C port allowing it
to interface directly to a variety of sensors and
instruments. The digital outputs can be used to
turn external devices on and off.
Data Collection Capacity
The FieldBook uses CMOS static RAM for data
storage. Because of the way data are stored in the
FieldBook, twice as much numeric data can be
collected and stored compared to a standard computer
with the same amount of memory. A FieldBook with 448
K of RAM can store the equivalent of 500 typewritten
pages of numeric data, 80 columns wide with 50 lines
DATAPLUS Application Generator
DATAPLUS EXTM is an application generator for the
JS 600 FieldBook. The program is menu driven, making
it simple to set up data collection templates in the
FieldBook to use in place of paper data sheets. The
program can include validity checking and the
automatic entry of default data and data from
The FieldBook can be used to collect wetland
delineation and stream survey data. The rugged,
waterproof design keeps data secure.

The Allegro Field PC is a rugged waterproof field
computer that runs both the DOS and Windows CE
operating systems. This capability allows you to run
all of your existing DOS applications while you
develop new applications in the Windows CE
environment. The Allegro is suitable for
applications in extremely harsh environments with
operating temperature specifications of -30 to 54
degrees C. A display backlight for low consumption
rates are low and all data storage is on
Gaskets completely seal the case from water and
dust. The Allegro can be submerged; it even floats.
The Allegro weighs less than two pounds and the
weight distribution is carefully balanced. No tools
are required to access the batteries and PC card.
DataPlus Application Generator Software packages
allow you to create electronic data collection forms
to mimic paper data sheets. If you currently collect
your field data on paper, you can use DataPlus to
create an electronic form for the Allegro Field
Computer. The form is created in a Windows
environment on your PC, then downloaded to the Field
Computer. There is no programming involved. DataPlus
has built in communications functions to facilitate
easy transfer of files back and forth between the
Field Computer and your PC.
Enter your field observations directly into the
Allegro. Use your existing DOS data collection
program or create one to run in Windows CE. You can
design a spreadsheet to run in Windows CE using PTab.
DOS applications can be created using DataPlus
Professional or EASYDC.
Collect Data From Sensors and Instruments
For automatic data collection, integrate the
Allegro with sensors and instruments including laser
rangefinders, GPS receivers, electronic scales, and
bar code scanners.
Applications include: stream gaging, gaging
station data management, resource assessment, stream
survey habitat classification, water quality
monitoring, wetland delineation, land mapping,
hydrology studies, stream restoration, GPS/GIS data
collection and mobile GIS.
