JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer of reliable computing solutions for demanding environments, has upgraded its powerful and versatile JLT6012 Rugged Vehicle Terminal (VMT).
Originally developed for demanding warehousing and logistics applications that require IT solutions running Windows OS, the JLT6012 VMT is a reliable computer platform for some of the world’s most challenging physical and environmental applications. has been proven to be Upgrades have made the robust computer operating area available to more industries such as container ports, yards and manufacturing plants.
The result of JLT’s extensive and ongoing research and development efforts, this upgrade significantly enhances the popular JLT6012 VMT and shows what the 6th generation of JLT devices has to offer this year and beyond. This is not only due to improved operational performance, which is key to making the devices more suitable for a wider range of outdoor applications, as many of JLT’s customers are undergoing digital transformation, but also because users are ready to make their devices Industry 4.0. It also demonstrates the ability to integrate into the information architecture.
The new JLT6012 VMT comes with WWAN/4G and is WWAN/5G ready to connect customers who do not have access to a WiFi wireless network, for example when using the device in large harbor yards . Compared to its predecessor, the new JLT6012 VMT has improved performance by combining a more powerful CPU in the form of an Intel Elkhart Lake processor with more RAM. A new chipset that offers WiFi 6E capabilities and Bluetooth 5.2 also improves network performance. Audio functionality has also changed.
Even before the upgrade, the JLT6012 VMT takes operational capabilities to another level compared to competitor solutions and other models in JLT’s extensive range. Its isolated 9 to 72 VDC power supply eliminates the need for external power connections or special protection in almost any vehicle. In addition, the wide range of integrated sensors opens up countless possibilities for various forms of operational data capture. These data are collated, contextualized and shared/presented by the data-driven software dashboard JLT Insights™ to help manage a fleet of robust devices.
As with its successor, technology and operational enhancements are separated from the elements thanks to JLT’s industry-leading robust design (the most compact in the industry), making previous generations incredibly demanding. It has helped me to work perfectly in harsh environments.
Another key aspect of its rugged capabilities is JLT’s PowerTouch PCT screen technology. It provides a nearly unbreakable operator interface, even while wearing gloves, without sacrificing user input capabilities. Quick and easy login, RFID tag integration, bright display with adjustable auto-dimming for both indoor and outdoor use, and easily accessible programmable function buttons for ease of use and productivity A user experience that is second to none.
