JLT1214P with JLT Rugged Projective Capacitive Touch™ (PCT) technology

Posted by JLT Mobile Computers (booth # 2525)

Summary of Innovation

- Virtually unbreakable touch screen, addressing one of the most common reasons for computer failures
- Usable in dry or wet conditions, with or without gloves, and with user-friendly experience comparable to modern consumer devices
- The JLT Rugged PCT™ technology in combination with a new Intel Bay Trail quad-core processor speeds up tasks and increases users’ satisfaction and productivity, as well as significantly reduces the services cost and loss in operation.

Innovation Statement

Previous generations of rugged computers most commonly use resistive touch screen technology that is chosen because of its usability with different types of gloves and in wet conditions. In some demanding environments, however, the resistive touch screen is susceptible to scratches and scuffs or even breakage of its plastic screen, often making the screen the point of failure for the computer. Resistive touch screens also do not offer the user experience that operators have come to expect from the capacitive touch screens in their own personal electronic devices. With the introduction of the JLT Rugged PCT™ technology, the projective capacitive touch with superior resilience to wear and tear can be used in the same demanding use-cases as a resistive touch, for example with different types of gloves and in wet conditions.


With the revolutionary JLT Rugged PCT™ Technology, a virtually unbreakable touch screen is offered, providing not only superb usability, but also addressing today’s most common reason for computer failures and expensive operational disruptions in the warehousing and logistics markets. As much as one third of all computer failiures in the industry today is due to breakage of the touch screen/display, thereby the new rugged PCT will significantly decrease both service cost and cost in operational losses.
