kerstrms is launching a new, rugged, wireless computer in its Trux line for challenging environments such as warehouses and production facilities with vibrations and hot/cold temperatures. Performance and functionality of the Trux 700 stand on technologys cutting edge. Built-in Bluetooth, sound functions, and faster USB ports are a few of its features.
The 700 is based on a architecture with flexible, modular design. So its easy to customize for various operations and thus enables ROI. The computer is kerstrms most powerful machine, whose 1.4 GHz processor provides high performance thats increasingly in demand for modern warehousing and manufacturing operations. Thanks to its streamlined design, its easily mounted on forklift trucks, and it gives operators direct access to the companys warehouse management system.
Demand is increasing for more sophisticated, flexible solutions in warehousing and logistics operations, says Marianne Arosenius, kerstrms CEO. We want to offer our customers rugged, flexible products that can follow an operations development and can be modified as requirements change. The new Trux 700 was developed for companies that want a powerful, robust computer packed with functions that can be adapted for the operation.
The computers light-weight magnesium case tolerates enormous abuse. All components are classified for industrial use and are carefully selected to fulfill stringent requirements. All holders, brackets, and supports are reinforced. And the number of internal cables is minimized to avoid possible errors. The Trux 700 tolerates extreme cold in freezersit restarts even after standing in -20C for a longer time. The 700 complies with the RoHS directive (effective 1 July 2006)the EUs stricter environmental regulation that prohibits use of mercury, cadmium, lead, hexavalent chromium, and PBB and PBDE flame retardants.
External institutes and selected customers put all of kerstrms new products through comprehensive tests before launch. So the Trux 700 was rigorously tested to ensure that kerstrms high quality standards were met.
The Trux 700s many functions include, for example, faster USB ports, which enable use of external accessories that demand high transmission speeds. Built-in Bluetooth facilitates easy wireless connections to scanners, radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, and other accessories. Connections for sound units enable many usage areas such as IP telephony and voice control. Video transmissions and multimedia application are also possible with the Trux 700. To optimize and assure high radio performance, operations can equip the 700 with external antennas. And communication is possible with various products based on these technologies: wireless local area network (WLAN), Bluetooth, the global positioning system (GPS), and the general packet radio service (GPRS).
