JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer and manufacturer of reliable computers for demanding environments, sees an increasing demand for Android within many of its core segments, including warehouse logistics, transportation, ports, mining and agriculture markets.
Responding to this trend, in March 2018 JLT launched its latest generation JLT6012™ vehicle-mount computer with Android support and is now expanding its Android operating system product suite with three new fully rugged portable computers.
Being by far the most common mobile operating system for smartphones and other consumer devices, Android, with its familiarity, ease-of-use and flexibility is now growing in popularity also in the enterprise and vertical market space.
“No doubt, there is a lot of interest in Android on mobile devices for professional use within our core markets,” observes Per Holmberg, CEO of JLT Mobile Computers. “By providing Android alternatives for our vehicle-mount computers and now also our portable computers, we help customers save on cost and training, and simplify maintenance by running the same OS on all devices deployed in their operation.”
The three new products are the 5-inch MH1005A™ rugged handheld, the 7-inch MT1007A™ rugged tablet, and the 10.1-inch MT2010A™ rugged tablet. All are IP65 dustproof and water resistant, capable of operating in temperatures of -10 to +50°C (14 to +122°F), built to withstand even the most challenging working environments, and tested to applicable MIL-STD-810G requirements.
Powered by ARM® Cortex™-A53 octa-core 1.3 GHz processors, all come with bright sunlight viewable displays, capacitive multi-touch screen, front and rear integrated cameras, as well as data capturing functions including NFC reader and optional 1D/2D-barcode reader. For maximum productivity, all include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and mobile broadband and provide full-shift battery life or more.
The new rugged tablet and handheld units, which are available for immediate order, are offered with the same high level of support and services that JLT is renowned for. A wide range of accessories is available, including vehicle and desktop docks, high-capacity batteries, battery chargers, and hand and shoulder straps.

The JLT6012 presents a major step change in rugged computing, as the new terminal not only delivers unparalleled productivity and better user acceptance today, but also constitutes a platform for building innovative mobile IT solutions, including hardware, software and services for the needs of tomorrow.
Featuring the industry’s most compact design, modern Windows, Android or Linux operating systems, and the user-friendly JLT PowerTouch™ PCT technology, the JLT6012 computer takes user productivity to new levels. It provides familiarity to all generations of users without compromising the ruggedness required to run uninterrupted for many years of tough handling in the most challenging environments.
Further, it provides features that make users’ workdays easier, such as quick and easy login and identification with RFID tags, high-brightness displays with adjustable auto-dimming for both indoor and outdoor usage, and easily accessed programmable function buttons that can be used to accelerate the most common user operations.
Maintenance cost is kept to a minimum with the resilient JLT PowerTouch display technology that addresses today’s most common reason for computer breakageThe JLT6012 also reduces total cost of ownership by providing a wide-range 9-72 VDC isolated power supply with UPS functionality, making it suitable for installation in most types of vehicles, including electrical, gas and diesel-powered trucks, without expensive external hardware. Maintenance cost is kept to a minimum with the resilient JLT PowerTouch display technology that addresses today’s most common reason for computer breakage. Other wear and tear-prone components, such as batteries and boot media, can easily be serviced, and the computer software and firmware can be upgraded remotely – all to avoid taking the computer out of operation in the field.
“Our customers manage rapid globalization, complex logistics and fierce competition that puts extreme demands on operational productivity and efficiency,” explains Per Holmberg, CEO, JLT Mobile Computers. “Our new JLT6012 computer effectively addresses these demands today, and also becomes a rugged computing platform for new innovative solutions to tackle these demands in new ways, providing significant productivity gains and improved profitability.”
Built on JLT’s heritage of excellent design, high quality and outstanding performance, the new JLT6012 computer adds a new dimension to rugged mobile computing. It is the platform on which JLT, together with software developers and customers, will build high-value solutions to address customer requirements. With a programmable I/O port, RFID and NFC technology, and prepared with microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) such as gyro and accelerometer, the JLT6012 enables the development of new innovative solutions to optimize workflow efficiency, maximize computer uptime, improve safety and more.
The new platform concept is designed to take advantage of the latest computer technology for long-term protection of customers’ investments.
The new JLT6012 computer complements the current line of rugged mobile computers from JLT, providing options for a wide range of use models in the logistics and heavy-duty industry segments. It has been tested and successfully deployed by pilot customers and is now available for order with normal lead times.
