Established in 2001, Aceeca is a privately owned New Zealand based company
made up of people with extensive experience in the field of instrumentation
design and marketing.
Aceeca headquarters in Christchurch, New Zealand, has access to skilled
engineering staff, readily available componentry and excellent manufacturing
facilities. New Zealand labor rates and general cost structures make Aceeca
extremely competitive when it comes to niche market design and
Helwig Carbon Inc., a Milwaukee based corporation established in 1928 own a
35% stake in Aceeca. The close relationship and synergies between Aceeca and
Helwig will ensure the industrial users will get the best of product and
customer service. In an age of specialization, Aceeca strives to work with
strategic partners in achieving its goal of becoming a world class
instrumentation supplier (see list of partners worldwide).
For the purposes of rugged computing, Aceeca's ruggedized Palm-based
handheld is unique.
With Palm itself offering Windows CE-based products, Aceeca, too, added Windows CE 5.0-based versions of its rugged handheld. The MEZ1500 was originally supposed to run a 312 or 520MHz version of the Marvell PXA270 processor whereas an announced MEZ2000 was going to have the next generation 806MHz Marvell PXA320 chip. Plans changed in late 2008/early 2009, and the company switched to Samsung S3C2440 processors and somewhat less ambitious specs. Below is the Aceeca Meazura Model Comparison Sheet as of mid-2009.
