Freewheeling Workstation Has On-Board Power

For efficient inventory management and a multitude of other tasks in warehouses, distribution centers, and other retail/manufacturing facilities, the PC Series Mobile Powered Workstation from Newcastle Systems has on-board power to run a computer, a printer, and other devices simultaneously. Generous shelf space provides room for products and other items.

Portability is the key. With 6-inch rubber swivel casters and no cord trailing behind, a PC Series Workstation can be easily rolled and positioned for optimal productivity. The casters can be locked for stability once the workstation is in place. All models have a load capacity of 500 pounds.

The unit’s rechargeable battery offers integrated, seamless power for up to 12 hours of normal use. Carts are available with dimensions up to 24 x 48 x 37 inches and five different battery/inverter/charger packages. The Newcastle Systems website includes a new “Find-A-Cart” tool that helps the customer choose the most appropriate power package by calculating the total wattage of the equipment to be supported.

Accessories include an additional shelf, drawers (including a keyboard drawer), a laptop holder, an 18” x 20” pullout printer shelf with a capacity of 60 pounds, a CPU holder, two types of flat-screen holders, and a barcode-scanner holder. All can be added in seconds and easily adjusted to suit the operator’s height and needs.

A typical use of a PC Series Mobile Powered Workstation is the recording of inventory in real time, printing a label as each product is handled, with access to WMS, ERP, and automated data collection. In a receiving department, inbound products can be inspected, labeled, and rerouted at the same workstation, eliminating unnecessary foot travel and paperwork.
