JLT Mobile Computers to Showcase New Bluetooth Pairing Tool and Virtually Unbreakable Screen Technology at SITL Paris

Rugged Computer demonstrated at SITL
New JLT software utility Forkbeard™ eradicates Bluetooth pairing pains while extra tough PowerTouch™ screens bring smartphone user experience to rugged computing

Växjö, Sweden, 1st March 2017  * * *  JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer and manufacturer of reliable computers for demanding environments, will be exhibiting the latest product developments for the transportation, logistics and supply chain at SITL Paris, Stand 1‑J88, together with its French partner ID Work.

At the event, JLT will be introducing Forkbeard™, a new software utility that takes away the hazzle of pairing Bluetooth devices such as barcode scanners of different formats with a computer terminal. The tool combines a wedge and pairing utility and eliminates the use of black boxes or special dongles. This simplified method of connecting scanners with rugged PCs leads to a marked increase in daily productivity and efficiency.

Visitors to JLT Stand 1-J88 will also be able to see two of the company’s most popular industrial computers equipped with PowerTouch™, a virtually unbreakable implementation of projective capacitive technology (PCT) that makes industrial touch screens as responsive as a smartphone’s while also working with gloves, as well as in humid or wet conditions. Unlike resistive screens, that typically fail in areas where keys are regularly pressed, PCT screens aren’t susceptible to wear and tear and are ideal for use with virtual keyboard technology giving users even greater flexibility in their logistics operations.

The first of the groundbreaking PowerTouch PCs on display at SITL is the compact VERSO+ 10 mobile computer, which is ideal for use within the logistics sector due to its small form factor, flexible QuickLock feature and outstanding performance. The second is the JLT1214P forklift computer, renowned for its excellent quality and reliability, and an ideal choice for logistics applications, particularly in warehousing and food distribution.

Also on display will be the JLT VERSO 15 which is specifically designed for applications where a larger screen is required, for instance to ensure readability from a distance or to display images alongside text.

All JLT computers support the full version of Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating systems. With a new kernel, Windows 10 Anniversary Update offers better performance and a higher level of security than ever before while requiring less storage space. This new version is also more adapted to touch screen computers. Combined with an updated hardware platform and PowerTouch technology, it delivers among the best price/performance ratios in the industry.
