Växjö, Sweden, July 11, 2018 * * * JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer and manufacturer of reliable computers for demanding environments, will be attending InfoAg to showcase rugged mobile computers and IT solutions that address the precise requirements of major elements of the agricultural value chain.
From on-field precision farming, through animal feed supply and onto state-of-the-art distribution solutions, JLT has a vehicle-mount terminal for all eventualities, especially for those in hostile and demanding applications. Products on show comprise the company’s VERSO™+ 10 rugged computer, its JLT1214P™ logistics computer and its full range of rugged tablets, including the MT2010™, MT1007™ and MH1005™ models.
The VERSO+ 10 computer offers ultimate ruggedness and reliability in the industry’s smallest form factor. Featuring easy mount/dismount, it also offers a scratch-resistant touchscreen that deploys JLT PowerTouch™ display technology, which provides optimum durability and user interactions.
The JLT 1214P logistics computer delivers lowest total cost of ownership and is available with either an integrated power supply, or an isolated supply for use on electrical truck and forklift applications.
Finally, JLT’s rugged tablet range, available with 10.1-, 7- and 5-inch screens, has been specifically designed to stand up to the rigours of field, food and warehousing applications across a wide range of operating temperatures.
Existing applications for these products include the deployment of VERSO+ 10 computers by Machinefabriek Steketee B.V., which uses them for smart farming solutions that leverage the rugged computer’s processing power in conjunction with high-definition cameras to align hoeing machines in order to increase efficiency and crop yields. Lantmännen, one of the largest farming and food industry groups in Europe, is another user of JLT’s VERSO range, where 80 trucks used for the bulk transportation of animal feed are equipped with these rugged computers for manufacturing and distribution planning. DeLaval, a leading agricultural technology supplier, is leveraging the capabilities of the JLT 1214P logistics computer in its brand new distribution centre in Gallin, Germany, from where it ships products to over 110 countries.
The agricultural sector is one of the world’s most demanding industries in terms of operating environments and regular user interactions. With the pace of change of technology seeing far greater levels of automation across all facets of the industry, the need for portable and vehicle-mount operator terminals is growing almost exponentially. Many of the world’s leading suppliers and operators depend on JLT for its rugged and powerful IT solutions and as the market matures and becomes more technologically dependent, JLT is setting the pace for this highly innovative sector.
