Handheld device support engineer field distribution
IT and communication are the top priority for the reliability and security of WPD's complex and extensive distribution network. As one of the UK's leading distribution companies, provide excellent customer service is the core of the company goal, in order to achieve this commitment, companies investing heavily in new technology, which is WPD successfully improve the cornerstone of the entire enterprise reliability and business efficiency. In particular, the company's field engineers must have the ability to perform tasks quickly and efficiently on site. To achieve this, they need to be durable and reliable mobile communication equipment, can achieve instantaneous connection and rapid processing of and strong enough to withstand harsh conditions and the worst of the British climate. When the company need to replace the current into the effective service life of mobile communication equipment, senior management know that they not only need to find a substitute for strong, but also can simplify the operation and improve the performance of the new equipment. They look for a handheld device that can withstand harsh outdoor conditions and is strong and easy to use, making it easier for their employees to perform a variety of basic operations such as climbing. WPD selected PS236 after detailed on-site trial and user evaluation.
This high performance device meets the standards and is easy to use and can maintain reliability in the harsh operating environment the company's engineers face each day. The device provides a critical processing power and connection performance for the smooth safe running of the company's grid. The all-powerful PS236 has the MIL-STD-810G standard rating and has won good credit in the industry for its reliability and durability. Using high-speed HSDPA wireless network, it provides the best connection and processing performance. The keyboard, which allows for gloves to operate, is currently used by engineers to change the mechanical control devices for changing Settings and switching the grid. The PS236's large-size keyboard is easy to wear with gloved user operations, and the engineers can operate in any challenging working environment.
The device can withstand vibration, drop and impact, and is the ultimate tool for data input and communication on site. It is equipped with a built-in electronic compass, altimeter, integrated GPS and HD display, which are ideal for GIS (Geographic information system) measurements and other GPS/mapping applications. Through Windows Mobile 6.1 system, PS236 can provide a variety of data acquisition and real-time data transmission. With 4GB of flash memory, it can run a variety of applications even in the most extreme environments. PS236 enables WPD field engineers to reliably complete household and enterprise distribution throughout the company's vast network. Intelligent battery longer service life.The device operating temperature range is - 30 °~ 60 °C ,the intelligent battery can provide accurate power at different temperatures. After 10 hours of GPS work, six hours of mobile phone operations and four hours of data transmission, the PS236 can choose to use a car charger and a desktop docking connection to recharge.
The device has a small appearance (178 x 89 x 30mm) and weighs only 490 grams, which is convenient for carrying and applying. There are grey or yellow colors to choose ,suitable for different applications and environments. The PS236 provides complete bluetooth, wireless LAN, 3.5 G voice and data connection, which can be used with PDA or digital keyboard to provide customers with comprehensive performance for various site Settings. Perfect sunlight readable 3.5 -inch touch-screen display clear can read in the sun, have WPD engineers needed to prevent glare and reflection performance, enabling them to perform tasks effectively in any place. The rugged Windows Mobile device has a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus, which can be used as a Mobile phone, which integrates advanced technology, targeted GIS functions and handheld PC convenience. 4GB flash memory can be extended to 20GB (16GB SDHC), enables PS236 for field engineers to provide the best speed, processing capacity and durable reliability combination, thus make WPD company can simplify the complex process engineer is usually performed at the scene, this means that they can finish the work quickly and effectively as much as possible. "PS236 is the best operating device." "WPD currently USES 3,000 of the devices, which were configured in the fourth quarter of 2011 and have never been replaced since," said Richard Beaumont, an application expert at Getac UK. The solution enables WPD to streamline the engineer's workflow, thus improving the efficiency of the engineers' field work. The device realizes the faster connection, it is also highly company operators, in addition, integrated GIS (geographic information system) and built-in GPS (global positioning system ) receiver, electronic compass and altimeter can also help them locate anywhere in the company's assets. "The PS236 solution does not live up to its strong and durable reputation, providing the reliability and flexibility that WPD dreams of." Mr Beaumont added.
