New Rugged PC Mounts to Industrial Machinery and Is Made for Warehouse, Logistics and Manufacturing EnvironmentsFriday, March 6, 2009
TEMPE, AZ — The Duros ™ 1214 fixed-mount rugged PC, the newest offering in RMT Inc’s Duros product line, was unveiled today. Engineered to withstand the rigors of warehouse, logistics and shipping environments, the terminal features an ultra-rugged touch screen polysilicon display and all-in-one aluminum housing that eliminates the need for corded peripherals. It is also sealed to IP-65 and meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810F for drop, vibration, shock and altitude.
The Duros 1214’s compact design means it can be mounted easily onto a variety of industrial machinery — including forklifts, pallet trucks and automated guided vehicles — with limited intrusion into valuable cabin space. The 12.1-inch SVGA resistive touch screen display provides for faster and easier operator communication, without a stylus or keyboard.
“The Duros 1214 combines nimble processing and sophisticated technology with the toughness required in a demanding, often harsh, environment,” said Eric Miller, general manager for the Duros product line. “This is a machine that can get banged up, get rained and snowed on, and spend all day in the blazing sun, and still perform data collection and delivery without missing a beat.”
On the inside, the Duros 1214 is powered by the Intel® Celeron® M 1.0 GHz processor and can run Windows® XP, Embedded, or Vista, as well as Linux. Compact flash storage is also available up to 64GB and four USB 2.0 ports are provided. Designed with connectivity in mind, the Duros 1214 accommodates customer-specific applications through an Ethernet port, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi with dual-diversity antennas.
While its primary power source is tapped from the vehicle to which it is mounted, the Duros 1214 also features a built-in backup battery that provides up to 20 minutes of continuous use without power. This is helpful when changing the forklift battery or making last-minute entries after powering down the machinery for the day.
