Vehicle mount computers are extremely rugged and designed for forklifts, industrial vehicle, and other extreme usage in hazardous zones. Offered in a range of sizes from a compact 7" version for easy hand holding to a huge 21" display industrial computer. There is a form factor to fit every requirement. Mobile computers’ solutions help to fill orders faster, without any loss of accuracy and are designed to withstand extreme temperature, shock, and vibration. And yet they will continue to perform in warehouse management, cold storage, harsh outdoor, manufacturing shop floors, as well as in -truck. Equipped with multiple connectivity options such as Bluetooth, WLAN, wired ethernet, they will read any barcode thanks to inbuilt imaging technology and when used with a connected handheld scanner.
Vehicle mount computers are designed to increase operational capabilities by directly linking to warehouse management and other enterprise systems. Their solid build quality ensures they are protected from dust and water (IP65/67) and 4-foot vertical drops onto concrete. Advanced Gorilla® Glass touch screen technology (4x better than consumer grade) even lets you use them whilst wearing gloves.

Transportation and logistics
Scheduling and work order management, including in cold storage and harsh outdoor environments. A sealed design tested to IP65/IP67 ensures operation in the toughest environments. A dedicated freezer-rated model with integrated display heater allows use in and out of cold storage (to -30 ºC /-22 ºF). The capacitive touch models feature 3 mm anti-glare armored glass, while still allowing use of gloves.
Manufacturing shop floor
With direct access to your factory Manufacturing Execution System, Datalogic vehicle mount computers allow you to assess product quality, process control, capture photos of good/bad results, and provide real-time feedback for fast traceability.
In-vehicle applications can be switched off via screen blanking where it is mandated by law to have no in-cabin distractions. Your drivers can focus on safely maneuvering the forklifts. The units do also provide the option to be used as a display when connected via USB to a reversing camera.
One handed operation
Some models with the optional handgrip allow for usage with one hand only. The unit is well balanced for ergonomic use and incorporates a standard or auto-range 2D imager. It’s just like using a tablet, and when required it can be docked on a forklift – again, with just one hand.
