Pi Star Selects QSI's VTERM-G55 Mobile Data Terminal for its PiMobileCADS and PiMobileRAMP Product Lines Used in the Para-Transit and Home Health Care Industry.
Salt Lake City, Utah. 31 July 2007. QSI Corporation's rugged mobile data terminal (MDT), the VTERM-G55, is now integrated with Pi Star's PiMobileCADS and PiMobileRAMP product lines, which are used to service the para-transit and home health care industry. The VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal allows Pi Star to schedule client pick ups; monitor vehicle mileage, transit times, location and speed; and send and receive messages to and from the driver. Pi Star is able to communicate with the VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal via an external GPRS and CDMA cellular modem or Satellite modem.
The VTERM-G55 mobile data terminal used by Pi Star uses a graphic display and a keypad to interface with the user. The terminal can be equipped with two EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial ports and/or an Ethernet 10Base-T interface. The VTERM-G55 has a 320x240 pixel, color LCD display measuring 96 mm (3.8") diagonal. (optional grayscale display available) and is viewable in most lighting conditions. Other features include 24-key or 40-key membrane / steel snap dome keypad with LEDs; 2 Mbytes flash / 16 Mbytes SDRAM; programmable speaker and real-time clock. The VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal is ruggedized to withstand the shock, vibration, temperature and humidity environmental extremes common in many vehicle-related applications today.
"QSI's VTERM-G55 is very rugged and resists the day-to-day use in this demanding environment. Drivers can even spill soda or coffee on terminals, then clean them up and they still work just fine," says Mr. Tracy Glende, President of Pi Star. "We especially like that the VTERM-G55 is very easy to program, simple to use, and integrates easily with a variety of wireless communication devices."
The VTERM-G55 mobile data terminal uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called QlarityÆ (pronounced Clarity). Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity FoundryÆ, a PC-based design tool, provides a WindowsÆ environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the VTERM-G55.
"We are delighted that Pi Star has chosen to use our VTERM-G55 terminal as an integral part of their PiMobileCADS and PiMobileRAMP products. Their success with this terminal once again proves that QSI provides world-class mobile data terminals that are rugged, powerful, economical and highly configurable to a wide range of users," says Tyler Phillips, Vehicle Products Manager at QSI Corporation. "We look forward to helping Pi Star to continue to grow their business."
