Symbol VRC 7900 Details

VRC 7900 Vehicle Radio Computer

Windows CE Vehicle Mount Data Terminal Features QWERTY Keyboard, 1/2 VGA Color LCD and Extreme Environment Tolerance

Temperature extremes and punishing environments are common to the distribution center and factory floor. The VRC 7900 is specifically engineered to deliver maximum durability in harsh conditions. It supports real-time receiving, tracking, put-away, picking and shipping applications, and provides new benefits for logistics and warehouse management system customers.

Offering the latest wireless LAN connectivity and the ability to interface with scanners, printers and other peripherals, this in-vehicle computer offers true multi-tasking operations and multi-host connectivity.

A Complete Warehousing Logistics Solution

Powered by a 32-bit StrongARM processor, the VRC 7900 provides superior performance and efficiency, running on a wide range of voltages. Microsoft Windows CE offers a familiar operating system, while its modular design and PCMCIA (Type I, Type II or Type III) flexibility also contribute to the product's strength. In fact, the VRC 7900 is so advanced, it is capable of using emerging technologies such as Java and supports both Spectrum 24 2 Mbps and 11 Mbps data rate radios.

A quick-release mounting bracket easily secures the VRC 7900 to fixed-mount locations or to forklifts, and allows for fast porting between vehicles. Its new, angled design makes it easier for operators to safely use the 65-key QWERTY keyboard and view the 1/2 VGA color display without obstructing the driver's vision.

The VRC 7900 is sealed to IP65 standards and offers a cold store heater option that enables the terminal to function at temperatures as low as -22°F/-30°C. To enhance operation in extreme industrial environments, the VRC 7900 features a large keyboard to accommodate gloved fingers, tactile feedback with adjustable audible tones to confirm data entry, and a high-contrast, color touchscreen LCD to provide the best readability under all conditions.

Through its rugged design and innovative features, the VRC 7900 allows operators to capture data on the factory floor or warehouse, and wirelessly download it in real-time to a host computer directly from the vehicle. Two-way communications permit management to reply with new work instructions and timely information updates. Quicker access to data means faster and better decisions, more productive employees and a positive impact on your bottom line.
