Advantech has created a new generation of vehicle-mounted computers. The Trek-775 and Trek-776 are both wireless units with a rugged design. They support data processing for supply-chain management in logistics, warehouse inventory control, distribution accounting, ports and yard freight management. The units provide a wireless data link for forklifts, trucks and container cranes. Both offer a selection of Microsoft Windows XP Embedded, XP and Windows Embedded CE 5.0 operating systems. Wireless LAN cards or GPRS devices can be easily integrated to provide users with real-time access to warehouse-management tools, the vendor said. The equipment was designed to withstand vibration, shock and freezing temperatures. Advantech offers touch-screen capabilities and color graphics. The 776 model features a 12.1-inch XGA screen, while the 775 comes with a 10.4-inch SVGA display that is readable in all lighting conditions.
