CMC Mobile Computing has announced an agreement with JLT Mobile Computers to distribute its full range of ultra-tough PCs in the UK and Ireland. A distributor of rugged mobile PCs for governmental, industrial and business applications, CMC will not only supply but also carry out final assembly and customisation of JLT products. The agreement with the Swedish company, which is at the forefront of the development and manufacture of rugged PCs, strengthens CMCs position as the leading distributor of rugged full-screen mobile computer products in the UK and Ireland.
Designed for use in extreme environments, the range has performed successfully under both Highly Accelerated Lifetime Testing (HALT), which tests the product to extremes of temperature and vibration, and track vehicle testing to the equivalent of 150,000 miles of off-road driving. JLT products now available through CMC include ultra-rugged fixed position or vehicle mounted PCs with screen sizes of 10.1, 12.1 and 15.1. Each computer comes with a choice of processor, memory, storage, standard or high brightness display and a range of operating systems, including Windows and Linux.
The newest addition to the range, the Field Tablet PC, offers field workers up to 8 hours use with a single battery, which is hot swappable for extended continuous use with additional batteries. Features include an 8.4 outdoor visible touch screen, low-power Transmeta Crusoe processor and a choice of Windows XP Pro or XP Embedded for unprecedented levels of functionality, ruggedness and flexibility.
Said Managing Director of CMC, Mark Dale-Lace: JLT has shipped more than 20,000 computers worldwide in the last 12 years and is doubling its production every year. This agreement gives JLT access to a broad customer base with a distributor that gives the highest levels of service and support to its Value-Added Reseller (VAR) and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners in the UK and Ireland.
