JLT Mobile Computers AB: JLT Introduces Virtually Unbreakable Touch Screen and Boosts Performance of its JLT1214 Logistics Computer

Reduces total cost of ownership and improves users' productivity by addressing
one of the most common reasons for computer failures

Växjö, Sweden, 23 September 2015 * * *
JLT Mobile Computers,
Swedish developer and manufacturer of rugged computers for demanding
environments, today announced the JLT1214P, a new logistics computer which
features revolutionary Rugged Projective Capacitive Touch (PCT) display
technology and additional computing power compared to previous product
generations. The JLT1214P computer's bright 12-inch XGA display with the new
JLT Rugged PCT technology provides a familiar, user-friendly experience
comparable to modern consumer devices, both with a gloved or ungloved hand,
while ensuring ruggedness, reliability and longevity in even the most
demanding environments. The JLT1214P computer also offers enhanced computing
performance thanks to a 64-bit Intel quad-core processor, improving
responsiveness. In combination with the new user-friendly touch screen, the
higher performance speeds up tasks and increases users' productivity. This
powerful combination of features provides the best possible total cost of
ownership for logistics applications ranging from warehousing and food
distribution to freezer storage and cross-docking.

The JLT1214P computer is based on the company's JLT1214 platform which is
already well known in the market for its outstanding quality and reliability,
having been proved in thousands of installations by customers around the
world.

Previous generations of rugged computers most commonly used resistive touch
screen technology that is chosen because of its usability with different
types of gloves and in wet conditions. In some demanding environments,
however, the resistive touch screen is susceptible to scratches and scuffs or
even breakage of its plastic screen, often making the screen the point of
failure for the computer. Resistive touch screens also do not offer the user
experience that operators have come to expect from the capacitive touch
screens in their own personal electronic devices. With the introduction of
the JLT Rugged PCT technology, the projective capacitive touch with
superiorresilience to wear and tear can be used in the same demanding
use-cases as a resistive touch, for example with different types of gloves
and wet conditions.

The addition of the JLT Rugged PCT technology to the proven JLT1214 platform
provides the JLT1214P's touch screen with a lifetime as long as the computer
itself, minimizing disruptive down time, resulting in a higher service level
and greater customer satisfaction. A 1.8mm thick, practically unbreakable
hardened glass cover protects the touch sensor, offering unparalleled
durability and scratch resistance. In tests, it withstands a 500g steel ball
dropped from a height of 1.2m with no damage to the screen. Additionally, the
JLT1214P computer can operate in temperatures between -35 to +55 degrees
Celsius, is dust and water resistant to IP65 and its design eliminates the
cavity between the glass screen and the case, preventing dirt build up when
in use and allowing it to be easily sanitized for use in the food industry.

In today's logistics market, where productivity is more important than ever,
the JLT1214P computer's enhanced computing performance helps provide
information quickly and reliably, which combined with the improved touch
screen usability increases productivity in even the most advanced logistics
applications. The JLT1214P is faster than ever before, due to its new Intel
E3845 quad-core processor (code named Bay Trail), which can run full 64-bit
systems, bringing world class speed to fork lift computers and making it a
future-proof platform securing customer investments long-term. The JLT1214P
computer comes with either Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 or Windows
Embedded versions. In the event of a computer problem, JLT provides a "No
Questions Asked" JLT:Care service agreement which guarantees a high level of
support and short repair times to minimize down time at predictable cost.

The JLT1214P logistics computer also features an isolated 18-72 VDC power
supply for electrical vehicle installations, or an unisolated 9-36 VDC power
supply for other installations. A backup battery ensures uninterrupted
operation during power failures which enables reliable operation, even with
unstable voltages from automotive batteries. The JLT1214P also features
dual-band 802.11ac WLAN and Bluetooth EDR 4.0 capability, with both radios
taking advantage of JLT's built-in highly sensitive Planar Inverted-F Antenna
(PIFA) technology, custom made for reliable wireless connectivity in
environments with poor coverage. As with all JLT computers, the JLT1214P
logistics computer is built from the ground up to deliver maximum reliability
and function in very demanding environments. A high integration of features
and the most compact design in its class provide for fast, reliable and
inexpensive installation, even in small spaces.

The JLT1214P computers are available today as an additional option to the
current JLT1214N computer that continues to be available with its current
configurations.
