TOUGHBOOK and forklifts – the perfect productivity pairing

  • Real-time stock calculations are accurate and fast
  • Time is saved and audit errors eliminated

Automation points the way to the future

Automation is a growing trend in warehouses and beyond, driven by the need for 24/7 real-time track and trace solutions from dispatch to delivery. Unsurprisingly, forklifts have become a focus for automation, with the promise of 25% productivity increases. Rugged technology, such as TOUGHBOOK tablets and handheld devices, is the ideal companion to an automated forklift fleet, displaying information on product location, placement, and order priority, and sharing it via Wi-Fi or 4G capabilities for real-time communications and data exchange. And that’s only the beginning. The combination of your forklifts and our mobile solutions devices opens a whole world of possibility for your business

Power Supply – More power to (and from) your forklifts

Made-to-measure power supply and management

To stay productive, your forklift computers need access to power. TOUGHBOOK devices stay powered-up wherever your forklifts go, thanks to class-leading extended battery life, flexible input/output configuration options, and hard-wearing, lightweight power adaptors that can cope with fluctuating temperatures and the challenging conditions of warehouse working.

Power delivered how and when you want it

TOUGHBOOK has partnered with Lind Electronics to combine our devices with the Lind Shut Down Timer (SDT), that protects your forklift batteries and communications equipment from over-discharge, low voltage and high-voltage damage. It also means your computers are powered on or off in conjunction with your forklifts being started up.

Flexible power delivery

You can choose from fully rugged forklift DC/DC adaptors, developed specifically to prevent power surges and damage to your mobile devices. Available for 12-32Vdc, 20-60Vdc and 70-110Vdc power sources.

Performance that lasts

Extended battery life. Hot and warm-swap options. Up to 24-hour operational capabilities.
TOUGHBOOK devices can handle multiples shifts and multiple workers

Why fixed computers could cost you

At some point, every year, each of your forklifts will naturally be interrupted for several hours due to planned servicing or unplanned maintenance.

With fixed computers, whenever that happens, the computer is out of action too.

And conversely, should the computer need to be repaired, serviced or updated, the forklift itself becomes unusable.

Spread this across a large fleet and you could be losing significant working hours…and money.

Our specialist docks feature VESA mounting plates, meaning your devices can be moved easily and securely from bracket to bracket, and vehicle to vehicle. No damage and no downtime.

Wireless Connectivity – Optimised wireless connectivity

True mobile productivity

To guarantee the smooth running of your operations, your drivers require instant and uninterrupted access to vital stock information, delivery scheduling, and communications. They also need to be able to capture and share data on the go. No delays. No downtime.

With optimised connectivity a must in today’s working world, our engineers are here to help you with first-class network integration support

For environments where excellent wireless signal is crucial, TOUGHBOOK devices feature optimised WiFi antennae, meeting the highest levels of connectivity standards for seamless connectivity. So you can enjoy high speed, low latency working, with stronger signal and ultimate connection stability.
