AML expands its M7100 Series wireless family with the M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal. AML provides a complete family of cost-effective and performance-oriented wireless computers for enterprise data capture requirements.

AML, a leading developer and manufacturer of wired and wireless automated data collection products, today announced the M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal for real-time data collection applications in the factory, on the loading dock, or in the warehouse yard. The AML M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal mounts securely to industrial vehicles such as forklift trucks and enables real-time data transfer between mobile operators and back-end host applications. Built to last with heavy-duty steel construction and an IP54 environmental rating, the M7170 is ideally suited for real-time receiving, put-away, picking, and shipping applications in rugged industrial environments.

“AML is pleased to announce the availability of the newest addition to our popular M7100 family of cost-effective and performance-oriented wireless data collection computers”, said Teresa Stone, AML Director of Marketing. “The M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal joins the M7100 wireless handheld and the M7140 programmable stationary terminal to provide a complete solution for wireless enterprise data capture requirements. From receiving to shipping and everywhere in between, the expanded AML M7100 family can help logistics and warehouse management system customers capture mission critical data with performance, speed and value.”

The AML M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal features an industry standard 802.11b radio, full 77-key QWERTY keypad, built-in power converter for voltages up to 54 VDC, and a ¼ VGA, backlit LCD for easy viewing, even in dimly lit warehouse environments. The unit’s intuitive menu driven set-up supports quick and easy configuration – minimizing the time and costs associated with system implementation. An Intel StrongARM processor and embedded Linux provide fast and reliable performance without “lock-ups”.

Supporting flexible application development and industry standard connectivity, the M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal integrates easily and quickly into a wide range of computing environments. Each M7170 ships pre-loaded with built-in clients for ease of integration – including VT100/220 terminal emulation, a TELNET client, FTP server and an HTTP server. Optional software tools provide support for Windows ODBC and OLE DB data sources, C++ development under Linux, or 3270 and 5250 terminal emulation. And as a member of the AML M7100 family of wireless terminals, the M7170 VMT rapidly integrates into wireless data collection applications where AML M7100 and M7140 terminals are currently deployed.

The M7170 Vehicle Mount Terminal is available for immediate shipment from AML.
