Ideal for shopfloor communications

The new IPC7/215 from DLoG UK is the ideal terminal for communications within manufacturing, quality control and logistics applications.

In factories and on production lines, the IPC7 is ideally suited for data collection tasks, displaying work instructions or connecting directly to machines via RS232, Ethernet or WLAN – enabling the user to view production information directly on screen. Its touch screen allows simple and quick use of applications with an optional numeric or full alphanumeric industrial keyboard if desired.

Technical features such as CompactFlash, PCIeMiniCard and automatic switch-off, make this terminal suitable for forklifts, commissioning vehicles, construction machines or trucks. It is extremely effective when used for picking jobs in warehouse logistics operations because WLAN connectivity allows direct contact to the inventory management system.

The IPC7 is the seventh generation of DLoG’s IPC which has been developed to take maximum benefit from a new motherboard and more powerful processor. The 15-inch colour TFT touch screen with XGA resolution and bright display offers excellent visualisation capabilities, enabling easy navigation while ensuring that operator training time and human error are kept to a minimum.

The terminal’s rugged construction and IP54/65 protection ensures resilience to mechanical, electrical, chemical and thermal environment conditions. The IPC7/215 is capable of operating within a temperature range of 0°C to +50°C as standard (-30°C to +50°C with optional heating unit).
