RTS Pikker 5

The RTS Pikker 5 is a robust mobile data terminal, purpose built for forklift operation within a warehouse environment. It was designed to overcome challenges including operation at -30ºC to +40ºC temperatures, as seen in cold storage and ambient environments.

Utilising LINUX technology, user operation has been simplified through fast start up times and extremely reliable operation, reducing frustration caused by typical operating system failures. Additional, this reliability increases productivity and reduces errors in receiving, tracking, put-away, picking and scanning, by not having to rekey information after terminal failure.

The RTS Pikker 5 includes an easy-to use keyboard and a full graphics LCD display providing an easy to read colour screen. It has an inbuilt power supply that can instantly run off a wide range of voltages and has a quick-release bracket for fast porting between vehicles.

The RTS Pikker 5 is a highly advanced radio terminal that is already capable of use with external printers, RFID readers and barcode scanners. Other features include LAN, USB, RS232 support, Symbol Spectrum 24, and CISCO Aironet.
