LXE Extends Line of Vehicle-Mount Computers, Brings PC Computing Power into Mobile Environments
New VX8 Kärv and VX9 Förj Now Available with Intel® Atom or Core 2 Duo Processors and High-bright, Energy-efficient LED Displays
ATLANTA - LXE, the mobile logistics business of EMS Technologies, Inc., released two updates to its Trux line of rugged vehicle-mount computers. The VX8 Kärv and VX9 Förj vehicle-mount computers incorporate sharper LED backlit displays, Intel® Atom and Core 2 Duo processing speeds and mobile radio connectivity into rugged and versatile mobile personal computers.
The two units are designed for enterprises that need full Microsoft® Windows® computing power in a mobile environment to optimize application and network management compatibility.
According to Bill Roeder, LXE vice president of Business Development and Marketing, "Our computers have always withstood the toughest environments with their rugged design. The Kärv and Förj computers provide the internal computing power and connectivity that allow our customers to truly leverage that ruggedness to its fullest, by running high-performance applications inside the warehouse, outside, virtually anywhere their business takes them."
The Kärv vehicle-mount computer is derived from predecessor products developed by the LXE's Trux group in Sweden and its namesake was a small, maneuverable Viking ship used for both battle and merchant missions. It comes with available Atom 1.6 GHz or Core 2 Duo 1.5 GHz processors, and up to 2GB of RAM. A 10.4" touch screen LED display, 802.11 a/b/g + Bluetooth radio, and available WWAN connectivity allow those processors to run high-performance software applications from virtually anywhere. The unit's compact magnesium enclosure rated to IP65 is engineered to handle extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust and moisture. The Förj computer, with a name that alludes to the strong, precise materials, which emerge from a blacksmith's forge, is the Kärv computer's larger counterpart, with a 12.1" touchscreen and outdoor screen option.
Said Roeder, "The Kärv and Förj computers are suited for a wide range of applications -- intermodal, airports, outdoor logistics like forestry, as well as the warehouses and distribution centers (for which LXE is known), but their true value comes from network management benefits. Knowing that these devices are fully Windows desktop-compatible helps IT management, and the energy-efficient LED displays and Atom processors contribute to high performance at a low lifetime cost of ownership."
