Updated Mar 11, 2011

QSI Corp., a designer and manufacturer of rugged mobile data terminals and human machine interfaces, says its new TREQ-M4x mobile data terminal, designed for vehicle system integrators, boasts the same features as the TREQ-M4 but offers wireless communication and control, and fully meets the hardware requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Rule 395.16 for electronic onboard recorders (EOBRs).

“With the recent regulations from FMCSA, it is even more important to offer an in-cab terminal that not only meets the new EOBR rules but also provides wireless communication for today’s vehicle applications,” says Jim Elwell, founder of QSI Corp. “We are very excited to add the TREQ-M4x to our growing line of TREQ mobile data terminals.”

Similar to the TREQ-M4 but designed for more functionality, the TREQ-M4x features a GPS receiver and a quad-band GSM/GPRS modem for location-based applications like mapping and navigation, as well as data communication for messaging and routing. Also added are a J1708 and J1939 (CANbus) interface. Additional specifications of the TREQ-M4x include a bright 480 x 272 pixel LCD, 4.3-inch (109 mm) diagonal with a resistive touchscreen, Marvell PXA 300 CPU (624 MHz), Windows Embedded CE 6.0 operating system, extended operating temperature range, magnetic card reader and Bluetooth capability.

Orders for the TREQ-M4x now are being accepted. Developer’s kits are also available.
