Mobile Data Terminal

WDT3000 Wireless Mobile Data Terminal

This ruggedised, general purpose Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) is styled for ease of use by a vehicle-based or field operator. The WDT3000 Mobile Data Terminal includes a full qwerty keypad for rapid message input at the mobile terminal.

With powerful on board processing capabilities the WDT3000 Mobile Data Terminal may be configured for many different forms of mobile data dispatch and field job management requirements (see WDN).  It is fully programmable and the user interface is highly flexible and dynamically configurable and it may be customised for individual applications providing fast to market solutions for wireless data solutions providers.

The WDT3000 Mobile Data Terminal is capable of being connected to a trunked or conventional 2-way radio or to a variety of other wireless data devices such as satellite or digital cellular transceivers (GPRS/CDMA etc).  The standard head provides a single serial data input however may also be connected to an I/O expander which adds a number of additional input and output capabilities including,  GPS receiver,  printer,  barcode reader etc.

The WDT3000 Mobile Data Terminal is provided with a highly configurable job management interface which supports job dispatch, job return data, free form text messaging, GPS location acquisition and status reporting. Job formats, status stacks and return data fields may be configured ‘over-the-air'.

Multiple screen layouts, job formats, status stacks and return data formats may be programmed into each unit which are triggered by the type of data despatched from the base. (See operating system description.)

Five soft menu keys are provided and the menus change with each screen.  Special interfaces can be provided on request such as large text,  different language sets (including graphical character sets),  Taxi meter etc.  The standard unit has 2 serial ports and an internal modem.

The GPS management capability on-board includes the ability to separately set location acquisition and data transmission criteria by time or distance. It is also has an internal geo-fecing capability.

The WiPath wireless data network (WDN) structure which includes the WDT3000 Mobile Data Terminal is designed to minimise the number of transmissions and the amount of data transferred to keep data and wireless network costs to a minimum.

An optional IO Expander provides for connection multiple peripheral devices including GPS receiver,  printer,  barcode reader.  The I/O Expander provides a total of up to 5 serial ports,  1 parallel port and 2 grounded outputs.

The unit sits in a cradle with an extendable curly cord that allows the MDT to be lifted out and operated on the lap.
