LXE specialises in rugged vehicle-mounted computers used in supply chain execution applications. The new models include the half-screen VX6 and the full-screen VX7 (pictured), based on the Intel XScale processor and on the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system.
With the VX6 and VX7, customers can run their CE .NET applications on both their handheld and vehicle-mount computers, greatly reducing user training and support costs. The company believes the CE .NET architecture also provides a greater return on investment by enabling customers to easily adopt future emerging technologies and applications.
The VX6 and VX7 also support LXE’s RFTerm multi-session terminal emulator, so customers can easily and cost-effectively run legacy terminal emulation applications (ANSI VT220, TN3270 and TN5250). The benefit of having this is the ability to migrate applications to a Windows GUI or browser-based design, without the need for buying new hardware.
One application example provided is using the half-screen VX6, with its integrated keyboard, mounted to fork trucks. The full-screen VX7 is focused on more robust CE .NET applications that require a full-screen. Both units are fully heated, making them ideal for freezer/cold weather applications. Both units also have high visibility and indoor/outdoor color displays that are easy to read in any lighting condition.
