Ideal for Applications in the Corrugated Industry

AMHERST, NH - Glacier Computer, a leading designer, developer, and supplier of rugged computers, rugged laptops, rugged handheld devices and rugged tablet PCs, introduces its Everest series of harsh environment computers. Ideal for forklift and fixed-mount applications within the corrugated industry, Glacier’s Everest line of rugged computers is designed to perform in the most extreme conditions, with 24/7 operation in mind.

Ideal for managing finished goods and raw material inventory, as well as streamlining the shipping process within the corrugated industry, Glacier’s rugged computers easily attach to fork trucks and clamp trucks. Each computer has a long-range bar code scanner attached and interfaces to the host application through a telnet session initiated on the work station. Glacier’s units can also utilize intranet reporting applications specific to each company so that operators do not need to dismount the vehicles to update and print reports.

Available in 10.4 inch and 12.1 inch screens and as a forklift computer or wall mount computer, the Everest series offers an array of processor options, from a 600 MHz Celeron up to a 1.4 GHz Pentium M, and provides up to 1 GB DRAM. Additionally, these computers can operate using Windows XP Pro, Windows XP Embedded, Windows Vista and Linux.

The Everest series of industrial computers features a custom onboard diagnostic and configuration utility, as well as programmable function buttons. The utility provides personnel with “flight recorder”-like data, as well as real time access to key statistics such as processor temperature, reboots, etc. The function buttons provide users with the unique ability to program frequently used tools into one-touch availability, thereby extending the life of the touchscreen.

Providing 6V to 60V isolated internal power supply, the Everest eliminates the need for external power converters or filters when mounting onto forklifts and other vehicles. Additional key features include multiple standard I/O, USB 2.0, internal 1 hour smart UPS and multiple expansion slots. The Everest offers 802.11a/b/g LAN, WAN, and GPS options.

Glacier’s Everest series of rugged computers are HALT tested, have passed thermal and reliability testing and have an MTBF of nearly 40,000 hours. Built to Mil-Spec standards, these computers have an IP 64 environmental rating.
