Glacier Announces Heated Touchscreen For Rugged Everest Computer

New Touchscreen Allows For Operation in Condensation Intense Environments

The Everest is an all-in-one computer designed for use on forklifts, carts, pallet jacks, and yard jockeys. The addition of a heated touchscreen solves the challenge of condensation refreezing on the touchscreen in applications where the forklift is being driven from a freezer to an ambient environment and back again. “Customers in cold storage warehousing and involved in the manufacture of frozen food are often driving between sub-zero environments and areas above freezing. This activity causes condensation and then a re-freezing of that condensation making the screen unusable by the operator,” states Dan Poisson, Dir. of Engineering for Glacier. “Development of a clear, touchscreen heater now allows for uninterrupted use as the operator travels between these locations,” says Poisson.

The Glacier Everest comes with either a 10.4 or 12.1” color LCD and touchscreen. All Everest units utilize Intel processors, industrial hard drives, integrated 802.11 wireless, and multiple I/O for the connection to an array of peripherals. An internal 10-60 VDC power supply allows for connecting onto 12 VDC over the road and propane vehicles as well as 24, 36, and 48 VDC electric forklifts. Solid-state hard drives offer protection against shock, vibration, and temperature extremes commonly seen in warehouse, logistic, and manufacturing / shop floor environments.
