Intralogistics and warehouse applications have a single goal: error-free stock management. Knowing item location, quantities on-hand, stock-outs, re-order triggers, space and scheduling, how to minimize movement and manage assets in a harsh, high pressure environment are only some of the challenges faced.
Fast, correct, real-time data capture and access are key issues. Advantech-DLoG Vehicle Mount Computers (VMTs) bring advanced computing to extreme environments, coping with dust, shock, vibration, humidity, impact, physical abuse, and extreme temperatures. From mechanical engineering to radio antenna design, from rugged to extreme, Advantech-DLoG’s portfolio of VMTs offers the best-of-breed, in-vehicle computing solutions.
On forklifts or cranes, managing pallets or containers, in freezer storage or bright sunlight, in warehouse or shipyard, Advantech-DLoG provides real-time, error-free intra-logistic solutions to inventory management. Success in managing the critical business of intra-logistics, gives companies a competitive edge, and Advantech-DLoG helps companies build a cost-effective infrastructure to support these processes and ensure optimal operations.
Advantech-DLoG vehicle computing and fleet management solutions translate real-time data about vehicles, cargo, deliveries and workers into dynamic, understandable displays that help increase productivity and lower operating costs. Designed from the ground up to handle extreme environments, these robust platforms facilitate the accurate monitoring of driver and vehicle performance to reduce costs and increase productivity.
Upgrade from paper-based processes and track freight automatically throughout the delivery process. A full range of products, at all levels of ruggedization, can help you monitor everything you want to control, even down to individual tire pressures. Streamline load planning, routing, and scheduling to eliminate inefficiency and costly mis-loads. Relay routing decisions in real-time to increase productivity.
Keep vehicles road-worthy while making better-informed maintenance decisions that optimize performance, reducing both downtime and spare parts inventory. Ideal for any fleet, whether it is composed of trucks, vans, buses, or off-road vehicles; Advantech-DLoG specializes on, and has extensive experience in, industrial fleet management applications.
Heavy Duty equipment such as earth movers, agricultural vehicles, dumpers, excavators, crawlers, cranes, quarry, mining and other vehicles operate business critical applications, in situations where downtime spells disaster. Operating in temperature extremes from Egypt to Finland, these vehicles require computing solutions that monitor, analyze, predict and report information about vehicle, driver, components, location, and more.
Applications as diverse as truck queuing systems, tire-pressure management, shovel hang time, vehicle oil pre-heating, load scheduling, and collision avoidance can mean the difference between continuous operation and meltdown. A single tire on a heavy duty vehicle might have a replacement cost of thousands of USD and a backorder lead-time of several months, for instance.
Advantech-DLoG ultra-rugged VMTs operate where needed—robustly and reliably—from cranes in Abu Dhabi, to dumpers in Alaska. Our products monitor health conditions of vehicle components through CAN-Bus attachments; track navigation and location; prevent collision and monitor driver behavior—in real-time. Advantech-DLoG VMTs improve efficiency, safety and productivity. They are cost-effective, and relied on by companies around the globe.
Point-of-Information systems are used to lead people through the processes of manufacturing, assembly line production, process flow, logistics and factory information. They provide the human interface to the machine environment.
The manufacturing environment is often dirty, noisy, subject to vibration, temperature fluctuation, and other harsh conditions. Ultra-rugged Advantech-DLoG industrial PCs are well suited for use in these stationary applications. They provide reliable, modular design, with digital I/O for connectivity; WLAN, eliminating an expensive wired infrastructure and permitting easy setup and equipment relocation; and information displays providing 3D drawings, work in progress, production line counting, machine stats, and pre-emptive failure information.
Advantech-DLoG designs equipment with galvanically isolated parts, sealed units, and advanced communication features (Bluetooth, Ethernet, WLAN, RFID), to meet the demand of these heat, dust and shock prone industrial environments. Terminals may be mounted to machinery for job control information, production line flow analysis, counting, and process control and so on, increasing safety, efficiency, output, and uptime
