Vehicle Mounted Computers
VEHICLE-MOUNTED COMPUTERS Industrial Rugged Tablets and Computers Glacier Computer manufactures and resells rugged fixed-mounted vehicle computers and mobile rugged tablet computers specifically designed to perform in challenging industrial environments. Vehicles can include forklifts, tow motors, pallet jacks, cranes, backhoes, and hostlers to just name a few applications. Glacier’s expertise in rugged vehicle-mounted computers and tablets spans an array of customers and industries. The ever-present demand to increase profits creates competitive business strategies where every bit of efficiency is vital. The speed at which data is captured and transmitted plays an important role in a business’ operations, and using application specific computers and tablets is an easy way to gain that edge. The ability to get a local or wide area networked device into the hands of personnel in the field makes workers more efficient and more accurate. Entering freight data onboard a forklift in an LTL operation can include door locations, weighing, and OS&D information. In this way, customer freight information is always up to date and available; reweighs are entered into the system to ensure proper charges, and damaged goods are noted in a timely manner. Rugged laptops and tablet computers for public safety allow for quick and accurate entering of license and personal data into the crime database, rapid return of pertinent history and outstanding warrants, and ultimately, better officer safety. Industrial tablet computers also keep officers in the field by using a mobile device to record scenes, take photos, and write reports without having to return to the station. The Kodiak is a rugged vehicle-mount computer designed to operate in harsh real-world conditions where it is often wet and dirty and extremes of temperature, shock and vibration are standard environmental challenges. In these environments, no desktop nor consumer device will survive for long. The Kodiak is a 5th generation design based on 20+ years of vehicle computing knowledge and experiences onboard forklifts, pallet trucks, dump trucks, backhoes, cranes, and more. The Kodiak has an internal 12-48 vDC power converter allowing it to connect directly to any vehicle power system without the need for an external inverter. The Kodiak is tested to conquer extreme environments by being designed and tested specifically for them. Environmental testing, a projected capacitive touchscreen interface, sunlight-readable display, ample wireless options including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and a host of rugged accessories will meet your extreme-condition data collection needs.
