LXE Inc., the market-share leader for rugged vehicle-mounted computers used in supply chain execution applications, today announces the introduction of two new rugged vehicle-mounted computers - the half-screen VX6 & the full-screen VX7. Both units are based on the Intel XScaleTM processor and on the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system.
With the VX6 and VX7, customers can now easily run their CE .NET applications on both their handheld and vehicle-mount computers, greatly reducing user training and support costs. The CE .NET architecture also provides a greater return on investment by enabling customers to easily adopt future emerging technologies and applications.
The VX6 & VX7 also support LXEs RFTerm multi-session terminal emulator, so customers can easily and cost-effectively run legacy terminal emulation applications (ANSI VT220, TN3270, TN5250). When the time is right to migrate your application to a Windows GUI or browser-based design, there is no new hardware to buy.
Operations and Maintenance managers will find the light, lower profile, half-screen VX6, with its integrated keyboard, easier to mount onto their fork trucks. Fork truck drivers will appreciate how simple the VX6 is to use with the keyboard and screen being in such close proximity.
The full-screen VX7 is perfect for more robust CE .NET applications that require a full-screen.
Both units are fully heated and support 100% condensing humidity, making them ideal for freezer/cold weather applications. Both units also have high visibility, indoor/outdoor color displays that are easy to read in any lighting condition.
With the new VX6 & VX7, and our existing MX5 vertical and MX3X horizontal handheld computers, LXE now has the most complete range of CE-based rugged mobile computers, says
The VX6 & VX7 are 802.11g-ready. When you are ready to upgrade to 802.11g, all you will need to do is swap out the computers radio.
