Handy, Slim, High-Performance – the New Logistics IPC from noax
(PresseBox) (Ebersberg, )noax has redesigned its C12 industrial computer to focus specifically on the requirements of the logistics industry – thanks to its slim dimensions, the new noax vehicle terminal is best suited for use with forklifts and industrial trucks. The optimized WLAN properties ensure reliability, even for mobile applications. Coupled with the renowned noax ruggedness, these features mean the new C12 design is well suited for applications in both inventory management and transport logistics.
The compact series of industrial PCs from noax have proven their worth across all logistics applications for many years, whether it be for order picking and inventory management, the dispatch of trucks, or the transport of heavy loads. noax Technologies AG has now reconstructed their C12 industrial PC with improved housing and internal components, allowing it to stand out thanks to its slim dimensions, improved flexibility, and numerous options for user-specific configuration.
Up-To-Date Thanks to WLAN and UMTS – Anytime and Anywhere
The redesign provided the noax developers with an opportunity to reduce the dimensions of the compact C12 even further, making it easier to fit into industrial trucks or forklifts. The new C12 supports the WLAN standards 802.11a/b/g/n as well as the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, to ensure optimal communication within the company network. The WLAN antennas are integrated into the front frame to prevent them from breaking off. Alternatively, the antennas can also be installed outside the device, like on the roof of the forklift, for example. If WLAN is not available but data still needs to be transferred to the company network, the newest noax device also offers the option to transfer data via WWAN, such as UMTS.
Fast Data Capture via Bluetooth and RFID
noax can integrate the Bluetooth functionality,for data transmission with wireless barcode scanners for example, thereby simplifying handling during order picking operations. Transponder readers for HiTAG, Mifare, and Legic can also be installed on the IPC, if required.
Greater Ease of Use Thanks to Additional USB Connection
Another new addition is the easily accessible USB connection on the front, which allows data to be loaded from a USB memory stick or additional peripheral devices to be connected. This USB connection is sealed tight by a rubber cap, which if ever lost or fitted incorrectly, the noax engineers have ensured that neither water nor dirt can access the inside of the IPC. Additionally, the C12’s durable design means it is also suitable for use in cold chain logistics up to negative 30°C.
Thanks to its clever design, it is easy to install the compact industrial PCs on industrial trucks, high-rack stacker forklifts, or other machinery: T-track rails as well as compliance with the VESA standards 75 and 100 allow for simple, and quick installation. Additionally, the connector cover can be fitted or removed with ease – a feature that also benefits IT personnel.
Just like all noax industrial PCs, the new C12 model is protected against water and dust as per IP65 (NEMA4) protecting ratings. The numerous new features are also geared towards the needs of warehouse logistics and transport logistics as well. noax can offer its customers a top-quality device that can be adapted to meet their specific needs in a number of different logistics areas, which gives customers more room for customization and flexibility.
