Tempe, Ariz. — The Duros ™ 1214 fixed-mount rugged PC, the newest offering in RMT Inc’s Duros product line, was unveiled today. Engineered to withstand the rigors of warehouse and shipping environments, the terminal features an ultra-rugged touch screen polysilicon display and all-in-one aluminum housing that eliminates the need for corded peripherals. It is also sealed to IP-65 and meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810F for drop, vibration, shock and altitude.
The Duros 1214’s compact design means it can be mounted easily onto a variety of industrial machinery — including forklifts, pallet trucks and automated guided vehicles — with limited intrusion into valuable cabin space. The 12.1-inch SVGA resistive touch screen display provides for faster and easier operator communication, without a stylus or keyboard.
“The Duros 1214 combines nimble processing and sophisticated technology with the toughness required in a demanding, often harsh, environment,” said Eric Miller, general manager for the Duros product line. “This is a machine that can get banged up, get rained and snowed on, and spend all day in the blazing sun and still perform data collection and delivery without missing a beat.”
On the inside, the Duros 1214 is powered by the Intel® Celeron® M 1.0 GHz processor and can run Windows® XP, Embedded, or Vista, as well as Linux. Compact flash storage is also available up to 64GB and four USB 2.0 ports are provided. Designed with connectivity in mind, the Duros 1214 accommodates customer-specific applications through an Ethernet port, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi with dual-diversity antennas.
While its primary power source is tapped from the vehicle to which it is mounted, the Duros 1214 also features a built-in backup battery that provides up to 20 minutes of continuous use without power. This is helpful when changing the forklift battery or making last-minute entries after powering down the machinery for the day.
