【Award】Advantech’s DLT-V4108 Rugged Vehicle-Mounted Terminal with Red Cap Design Wins 2018 Red Dot Product Design Award
Taipei, Taiwan, April 12, 2018 – Advantech, a leading provider of industrial computing solutions, is pleased to announce that its DLT-V4108 rugged vehicle-mounted terminal with integrated keyboard will be honored with an award at this year’s prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award Gala hosted in Essen, Germany. This is Advantech’s first ever Red Dot Award. Out of 6,300 entries submitted by 59 countries, the 39-member jury selected Advantech’s DLT-V4108 rugged vehicle-mounted terminal as the award winner for impressively demonstrating superior innovation and quality.
Rugged Yet Agile Vehicle-Mounted Terminal Design Optimizes Logistics Management
Designed to offer a long service life for logistics applications, DLT-V4108 is a rugged and ergonomic vehicle-mounted terminal with integrated keyboard. With its 5M3 certification, IP65 rating for water and dust ingress, and wide operating temperature range (-30 ~ 50 °C/-22 ~ 122 °F), DLT-V4108 can withstand operation in extreme industrial environments. The terminal’s slim and compact form factor make it suitable for installation in limited spaces, such as narrow vehicle cabins. Furthermore, the integrated ergonomic keyboard (which can be rapidly replaced onsite for easy maintenance) and 8” touchscreen with projected capacitive touch control (which also supports gloved operation) ensure convenient data input and rapid real-time data collection.
Distinctive Red Cap Design Ensures Reliable Data Connection in Harsh Environments
Built for operation in harsh environments, Advantech DLT-V4108 provides stable communication network connectivity. The exclusive red cap design atop the terminal protects the system from impacts and shock and can be integrated with multiple antennas for demanding roaming applications. Advantech’s DLTV4108 terminal is equipped with Wi-Fi, WWAN, and GPS technologies to provide the necessary connectivity that supports reliable communication even in closed vehicle cabins. The DLT-V4108 terminal guarantees secure and stable communication for high data volumes, enabling port vehicles and forklifts to remain permanently and continuously online.
Ergonomic Keyboard and Color Touchscreen Create Added Value
Unlike other similar terminals equipped with an integrated keyboard, DLT-V4108 features a color display and projective capacitive (PCAP) multi-touch screen. Compared to resistive touch screens that are vulnerable to scratches and abrasions, PCAP touchscreens are extremely rugged and resistant to scratches, yet still highly sensitive. The integrated keyboard provides customers with significant added value. Specifically, it simplifies and accelerates data entry, reduces input errors with haptic feedback, and saves space and costs.
Additionally, DLT-V4108 features a backup battery that ensures uninterrupted power to prevent data losses in the event of voltage fluctuations or power interruptions. Finally, the DLT-V4108 rugged vehicle-mounted terminal with integrated keyboard can be flexibly configured, and the brightness of the display and keyboard light flexibly adjusted, to meet specific usage and environment requirements.
