Prevents Cable Connection from Being Lost and Unit from Being Destroyed

Glacier Computer, a leading developer of versatile and powerful industrial computer systems for harsh environments, announces its reliable, rugged, and versatile clamp for use with Glacier's popular line of GX Series of industrial computers. Glacier units are ideally designed for use in harsh environments where extremes of temperature, shock, and vibration are experienced.

Keyboards and bar code scanners are often connected to Glacier's computers for use in the data collection process. However, the connection is often accidentally pulled out or can vibrate out over time. This can cause a series of issues, including the need to reboot the unit to be recognized as a PS/2 device. More serious issues include scanners being run over by the forklift on which it is mounted and, thus, being destroyed. The Glacier clamp provides a solid grip on the PS/2 and/or USB connection, and is in the process of being adapted for use with other devices.

"Customers using this clamp have experienced a significant reduction in damaged ports on the computer and a reduction in broken scanners," states Dan Poisson, Director of Engineering, Glacier Computer. "The benefits are tremendous in terms of the obvious cost savings due to a decrease in damage, as well a reduction in downtime," states Poisson.

Alternative terminals offer either no locking function or a custom connector, such as a DB9 style. However, these require custom mating cables, which result in greater lead time and additional cost at time of ordering. Additionally, custom connectors reduce flexibility due to the inability to swap between arrays of industrial peripherals.

With its in-depth knowledge and experience in the industrial computing arena, Glacier takes pride in its ability to provide quality products and exceptional customer service to meet customers' needs.
