JLT rugged computers work reliably in the most demanding situations because they are resistant to vibration, shock, temperature changes, electrical interference and more. This is of vital importance for defense applications as well as public safety.
Until now, the standard solution to support operational military tasks has been to put specially designed embedded computers into vehicles. Albeit a very expensive solution, for years this has been the best way to provide military vehicles with technology that can reliably withstand harsh environments. JLT Mobile Computers is offering another approach by replacing and enhancing many of these specially designed units for a mere fraction of the price with the JLT industrial PCs, and they are not only durable but small as well.
Meeting MIL-standards without bargaining on performance
JLT products are designed against US-military MIL-STD-810G and European IEC test standards for shock, dust, heat, cold, vibration and water resistance. We are constantly pushing the limit of our computers to develop faster and more reliable systems. Our computers use the fastest available processors which do not require fan cooling, a range of screen sizes with adjustable resolutions and high light intensity from 500 to 800 NIT. The military generally sets the standard for tough devices of all kinds. Even the standards we use to rate the ruggedness of equipment is a military standard. So, it is no surprise that rugged mobile devices find their way to the battlefield and myriad support assignments. You will currently find our devices used by troops in remote regions of the world where ruggedness and reliability are vital.
Rugged computers can save lives
A rugged computer in tough situations can save lives. Using a standard laptop or semi-rugged tablet for critical applications might reduce the initial investment in hardware but jeopardize both lives and vehicles. There are many examples where a industrial computer is used for public safety.
Time to reach the fire site is reduced if the computer onboard the fire engine starts to receive data from the alarm control center the second a fire alarm goes off. Electronic maps can be sent and the driver gets instructions to find the best way to the fire site. Via satellite link, the computer can get building designs with graphical information about explosive and other dangerous goods. Getting building design data usually takes minutes – information which can save many lives.
Pre-hospital care in ambulances
By integrating medicine with IT and telecommunications, the proper treatment can begin right in the ambulance. If a specialist's help is needed the ambulance will be redirected to the relevant hospital. PC applications can send patient data from ambulances, monitor EKG, respiratory values, blood pressure and other patient data. A diagnosis can be made from the hospital and treatment can begin and surgery can be prepared while the patient is still in the ambulance.
Public safety workers and police
Instant access to databases of images and information of known criminals, stolen goods, fingerprints and car owners enables the police to work faster and better. JLT mobile PCs give such applications direct access to all these services from a police car, security transport or even a motorcycle. Wireless image transmission allows data and pictures of criminals to be sent to every unit from computers in police cars in a matter of seconds. Using geographic information and wireless communication, car chases may be planned to save innocent victims.
