JLT Upgrades Its Tablet and In-Vehicle PCs to Intel Atomic Power and Windows 7

RUNCORN, England -- JLT Mobile Computers AB, a leading manufacturer and developer of rugged computer solutions for the toughest environments, is shipping new versions of its JLT8404 tablet PC and 1214 in-vehicle / fixed-mount computer. The Swedish designed and built computers feature a new ultra-low voltage Intel Atom processor running at 1.6GHz and Windows 7, bringing much higher performance and enhanced 3D graphic capabilities for JLT computer users. Both types of computer are available today for immediate delivery in standard configuration.

The JLT8404 is perfect for demanding mobile applications needing a rugged military standard (MIL STD 810F) handheld tablet PC, such as engineering, surveying and monitoring. For demanding in-vehicle, plant and production line environments, the IP65-rated JLT1214 provides the ideal solution. Both computers are tested to the extreme - water and dust ingress to IP65, shock 30 g for 11 ms, vibration tests at 5-500 Hz/4.5 g RMS 3 hours XYZ, and extreme temperatures.

Both are standard setting rugged mobile computers with aircraft-grade aluminium chassis and feature 2 gigabyte of RAM, enough to run demanding applications comfortably without worrying about running out of memory. The computers are available with a choice of Microsoft operating systems (OS) - Windows 7, Windows XP or Embedded - giving users the option to choose their favourite OS and run existing software applications.

The JLT8404 is equipped with a built-in high-performance Sierra Wireless wide area network (WAN) module. This high-speed wireless technology is easy to use and provides simple connectivity to wireless networks and exceeds industry specifications for temperature tolerance, drops, shocks and vibration. The tablet PC include a sunlight-viewable 8.4-inch colour SunView touch screen, Bluetooth and 3G/GPRS connectivity, and much improved, highly accurate GPS performance for field mapping and in-cab use.

The fixed-mount JLT1214 offers outstanding performance and energy efficiency in all environments, even in temperatures as low as -30C. The touch screen PC is ready to go right out of the box with all the features needed for demanding forklift trucks, cranes, industrial vehicles, production lines and plant applications. The computer provides built-in wireless connectivity (WLAN, high-speed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), an uninterruptible power supply and power stabilisation for voltages ranging from 9 to 72V DC. The computer connects to any Windows-supported hardware using a range of interfaces - Bluetooth, USB and RJ45 10/100-TP Ethernet.
