JLT Mobile Computers, developer of rugged computers for demanding environments, has recently launched the VERSO+ 10 computer with QuickLock, which they have dubbed as a ‘new class of rugged vehicle terminals…’
Equipped with an Intel® Core™ i5 processor, the VERSO+ 10 computer offers strong performance in one of the industry’s smallest rugged form factors, making it a good choice for installations in tight cabins or other small areas. The QuickLock feature offers quick and easy mounting with the computer easily detached and attached in the vehicle to simplify service, being moved between vehicles or prevent theft by removing it at the end of the working day.
The new devices have a 10 inch sunlight readable XGA display and scratch resistant multi-point touch screen placing the VERSO+ 10 computer in the same family of heavy-duty JLT VERSO series that also includes 12 inch and 15 inch computers. JLT claim this youngest sibling will also provide the same high reliability as the rest of the series when used within very tough environments such as agriculture, ports, freezer storage, yard-logistics, and forestry
The VERSO series only launched in the first quarter of 2013 but has grown quickly and JLT have attracted customers from around the world with high demand for performance, ruggedness and reliability. With the new VERSO+ 10 computer, with QuickLock feature and a smaller form factor, customers now have a more flexible and compact alternative, but with the same performance and ruggedness.
As with all JLT computers, the VERSO+ 10 computer is built from the ground up to deliver maximum reliability and function in very demanding environments. It comes with an Intel Core processor or an Intel dual-core Atom D2550 processor. Built-in features include a 9-36 VDC power supply, a backup battery to ensure uninterrupted operation during power drops, WLAN communication with built-in highly sensitive PIFA antennas, custom-made for reliable Wi-Fi connectivity in environments with poor coverage.
New with the VERSO+ 10 computer are Bluetooth PIFA antennas with a resulting reliable communication with low-power hand carried peripherals, and the option of external antennas for both WLAN and Bluetooth for very demanding environments such as ports and other wide areas. The VERSO+ 10 can also be equipped with 3G WWAN communication. The VERSO+ 10 computer can be ordered with Windows 7 Pro or Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard operating systems.
“With the new VERSO+ 10 computer, we build on the success of the VERSO series of heavy-duty vehicle computers that, since its launch in January last year, is being selected by customers within mining, sawing mills, off-shore, ports and other demanding applications,” said Per Holmberg, CEO at JLT. “With the VERSO+ 10 computer, we reinforce our leading position within the high-end of the market by providing the smallest form factor and greater flexibility with the same high performance.”
Another key draw for companies is the JLT:Care Service Level Agreement. With this ”No-Questions-Asked” service added, customers are guaranteed a high support level and short repair times to maximise the up-time of the computer at predictable cost, an important benefit.
The VERSO+ 10 computer is available now with a dual-core Intel Atom processor D2550 and can be ordered from JLT Sales Partners. The Core processor option will start shipping in the second half of 2014.
