JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer of computers for demanding environments, announces the addition of an Android 10-based version to its JLT6012 ™ series of rugged vehicle-mounted computers. Designed to increase productivity in warehousing, manufacturing, transportation, ports and all other types of logistics deployments, the new JLT6012A ™ PC brings the familiar and user-friendly Android experience to the popular JLT6012 series, reducing the training needs and meets the expectations of the modern workforce. Certified for Google Mobile Services (GMS), the new JLT6012A unit also opens up access to Android programming expertise and the vast and growing number of Android applications and utilities.
The new JLT6012A computer represents what many businesses and industrial customers have wanted: a state-of-the-art Android fixed mount computer that is just as tough and rugged as Windows devices in their operations. Designed for maximum productivity and reliability, the JLT6012A computer is optimized for indoor and outdoor use in all types of logistics operations.
“Android is the world’s most popular operating system for consumer mobile devices and billions of people know and use it every day,” said Per Holmberg, CEO of JLT Mobile Computers. “Many customers in our markets would like to use it in their business, but they are hesitant because most Android devices are not designed for harsh industrial operating conditions. This is where our new rugged JLT6012A Android 10 comes in because it is completely designed to perform reliably in demanding environments. It’s the same rugged machine as our field-proven JLT6012 Windows PC, and customers now have complete flexibility to choose the best operating system for their specific operations.
Target industries for the JLT6012A computer include warehousing; manufacturing; transport; food and drink; retail and wholesale; third party logistics; ports and the like. The device takes into account the specific requirements of these industries, such as: a reliable connection to any wireless infrastructure; automatic dimming that always sets the correct screen brightness; Programmable function keys for easy access to common tasks; as well as a built-in wide-range isolated power supply for easy installation and operation in combustion and electric vehicles.
The JLT6012A also removes one of the most common reasons for computer failure as its screen is virtually unbreakable, while JLT PowerTouch ™ technology allows for use with gloves and in wet environments. Other wear-prone components can be easily repaired, and computer software can be upgraded remotely, all to avoid taking the computer out of service in the field.
The JLT6012A computer comes with Android 10 and is certified for Google Mobile Services (GMS). This means a more secure unit with regular security updates; Support for the industry’s most popular mobile device management (MDM) solutions; Android Enterprise API for integration into enterprise mobility management (EMM) systems; inclusion of all of Google’s productivity enhancing applications; Over-The-Air (OTA) software updates; as well as the easy configuration of Android for secure working functionality in a corporate environment.
Android’s support for a wide range of sensor technologies (accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light, temperature, etc.) not only enables sensor-assisted navigation, but also the integration of sensor technology into software. and dedicated custom utilities. JLT Mobile Computers is in the process of creating such value-added applications for the platform.
A limited number of production units are available to customers today, with volume production expected in the fourth quarter of this year. To help customers understand and take full advantage of GMS certification, JLT Mobile Computers will also be hosting a free educational webinar on September 28 at 4:00 p.m. CET / 9:00 a.m. CST.
