At the LogiMAT, which takes place from 13th to 15th March 2018, ADS-TEC (hall 8, booth A22) will be presenting innova-tions from the industrial IT sector for use in mobile logistics applications
VMT9000 series as a continuation of the VMT success story: The logistics terminals of the new generation are considerably smaller, but even more powerful and equipped with a wealth of innovative features.
16. January 2018
With its technologically advanced design and exceptional quality, the newly developed VMT9000 series is carrying on the tradition of award-winning ADS-TEC operating devices. They are available in the 4:3 format and for the first time also in widescreen format, are equipped with the very latest Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB, Linux and IGEL operating systems and are offered in 10.4, 12.1 and 15 inch versions.
The extremely compact design means that the devices can be used in confined spaces. Com-pared to the predecessor models, the new series is even more powerful and is equipped with the very latest PC technology (Intel Atom®Dual and Quad Core processor technology). They are completely dust-tight in compliance with IP66 and are also protected against strong water jets, can be used indoors and outdoors in temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C, are equipped with impact-resistant panels with protection class IK08, have scratch-proof and abrasion-proof surfaces and, thanks to their robust die-cast aluminium housing, can be mounted flexibly on forklifts and vehicles.
To further improve readability in bright conditions, the devices are equipped with sunlight-readable displays as standard. The customer can choose between a resistive industrial touch-screen or a PCAP multi-touch display (here too the display can be operated while wearing gloves). An integrated brightness sensor automatically regulates the display illumination under varying ambient light conditions. For driver recognition, a proximity sensor is integrated which dims the display automatically when the driver leaves the vehicle, thereby optimising the energy consumption of the forklift.
The integrated UPS function ensures interruption-free work, even while the forklift battery is be-ing changed. A wide-range power adapter for 12 V, 24 V or 48 V on-board power systems has been integrated to allow connection to different vehicles. To ensure a stable WLAN connection, an external WLAN antenna can be connected at any time (WWAN and GPS are also possible if no WLAN is available). RFID user identification safeguards access to data. The integrated eMMC on-board memory with 64 GB contributes to price optimisation – it saves the expense of additional mass storage. Furthermore, an easily accessible service slot enables quick and easy installation.
All in all, the new VMT9000 series fully meets the requirements of the new Industry 4.0 age.
Machine-mounted terminals, panel PCs, tablets and Industry 4.0 solutions will also be presented at the show booth.
With the IoT service platform Big-LinX, the operating software X-Remote, the firewalls and rout-ers as well as its tried-and-tested operating devices, the company offers a powerful solution kit for globally networked systems – whether in storage and logistics, medical technology, food and drink industry or for maritime applications. The interaction of ADS-TEC IT products clearly demonstrates just how successfully Industry 4.0 already functions.
