Radio data terminal

What are wireless data terminals?

In the industrial and logistics sector, wireless data terminals enable fast access to information. For example, they can be connected to the warehouse management software via WLAN. In addition, they can also execute other warehouse management systems and be used in a variety of ways.

How do wireless terminals differ from ordinary terminals?

Radio data terminals in logistics differ from ordinary terminals mainly in their design. Since conditions in the warehouse are usually harsher than most at home, the terminals must also offer appropriate protection. For example, their compact industrial design prevents dirt, dust or water from entering.

But they are also protected against physical influences such as vibrations and shocks. Nevertheless, they allow easy operation - even with gloves, depending on the model.

This makes radio data terminals ideally suited for use:

  • In the warehouse (installed in fixed locations)
  • On industrial trucks
  • To machines
  • As mobile terminals (for picking, for example)
