DLoG Logistics Inc. says its fanless touchscreen personal computer, the Industrial Mobile PC DNeT MPC 5/110D, has sophisticated features and rugged construction that make it ideal for use in warehouses and on forklifts, construction machinery and other indoor and outdoor vehicles.

The optional 3M Near Field Imaging (NFI) MicroTouch 10-inch touchscreen — also available in 7- and 12-inch models — provides high visibility even in bright environments, and the optional heating capability allows the MPC 5/110 to operate in temperatures as low as -22 Fahrenheit, according to the company. An internal UPS storage battery is available for backup during power failures and transportation from one vehicle to another; an optional automatic switch-off feature powers down the computer when the vehicle’s ignition is turned off.

DLoG’s compact MPC 5/110 is housed in a coated aluminum frame with external dimensions of 9.02-by-11.02-by-3.27 inches and a weight of 10.6 pounds. The company says shock and vibration resistance is rated Class 7M3, according to EN 60721-3 (1995). Wireless connectivity is provided through Wi-Fi (802.11b /g); numerous interfaces, including a PCI port and 2 USB interfaces, are provided on the bottom of the housing for add-ons or extra peripherals.
