The rugged and versatile Vehicle Mount Computer, Rhino 10, optimizes warehousing management applications

Datalogic Mobile
, one of the world leaders in the mobile computing industry, launches the new Rhino 10, an extremely rugged Vehicle Mount Computer designed for warehousing management in distribution centers, warehouses and manufacturing shop floors. Rhino 10 significantly increases productivity thanks to its automated data collection capability during receiving, put-away, picking and shipping activities.

Designed to deliver maximum efficiency and reliability in the toughest environments, the Rhino 10 Vehicle Mount Computer sets the industry standard for ruggedness. This new product features a cast aluminum IP65 sealed case that protects it from the driest and wettest environments, resisting dust, rain, harsh cleaners, and whatever else can be found in both indoor and outdoor warehouse environments. It also handles the strongest vibrations and shocks experienced onboard rigid suspension vehicles with ease, while a dedicated low temperature model can be used in freezing temperatures, providing one of the widest operating temperature ranges on the market today (-30°C to 60°C).

Coupled with its ruggedness is the Rhino 10’s excellent connectivity. A Summit IEEE 802.11 b/g CCX v4 certified radio is incorporated into the Vehicle Mount Computer, assuring seamless integration into the existing IT infrastructure. Ethernet capability is also offered on select models along with an extended temperature range. Rhino 10 provides a wide range of possibilities for wired connectivity as well, with two serial and two USB ports, permitting the use of a handheld bar code scanner for quick data entry and location confirmation. Furthermore, the Bluetooth option allows connection to peripheral devices and is certified for use with Datalogic Scanning’s Powerscan handheld readers.

Extremely versatile, the new Rhino 10 features a ten inch touch screen display which can be installed easily in various space constraints without the need of covers, gaskets or special cables. Mounting options include support for the Vehicle Mount Computer, handheld readers and a full range of external keyboards with different layouts and sizes to address every possible customer need. For increased application flexibility, the Rhino 10 also includes a dedicated software keyboard, available in a multitude of layouts and languages.

“Think of our new Rhino 10 as a ruggedized iPad for a forklift. Its 10″ full touchscreen display minimizes footprint while allowing gloved hand operation – no physical keyboard required!” pointed out Tom Burke, Datalogic Mobile Vice President of Product Marketing and Support. He went on to say, “moreover, the new Rhino 10 is included in the Datalogic Utilities and Wavelink Powered programs, allowing easy and fast integration with both Wavelink Avalanche and Terminal Emulation pre-installed and pre-licensed at no additional cost.”
