【New Product Announcement】TREK-734 All-in One Light-Duty Mobile Data Terminal with High-Performance Computing Solution for Port and Fleet Management
November 21, 2017 (Taipei,Taiwan) – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce TREK-734 – an 8” RISC-based all-in-one light-duty mobile data terminal aimed at port and fleet management applications. Equipped with a Freescale ARM® Cortex™-A9 i.MX 6DualLite processor, Android 5.1 OS, 1 GB memory, and LTE capabilities, TREK-734 enables high-performance computing for fleet management. The industrial-grade design is IP54 rated for protection from water and dust ingress, certified to MIL-STD-810G standards for shock and vibration tolerance, and supports a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 70 °C), making it suitable for operation in harsh in-vehicle environments. Built-in LTE capabilities transform the terminal into a wireless network hub that supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS communication to enable location tracking and route optimization. The optimized system I/O includes a CAN bus interface that supports raw CAN, J1939, and OBD-II/ISO 15765 protocols to provide an efficient in-vehicle network for diagnostics monitoring. Specifically engineered for noisy outdoor environments such as ports, TREK-734 features an 8” high-brightness (750 nits) sunlight-readable display with multi-touch control as well as two front-facing high-volume speakers and two noise-canceling microphones for enhanced audio. Additionally, three external antenna ports are provided to enhance network connectivity for critical outdoor applications. Furthermore, to prevent operational interruptions due to power failures and emergencies, a backup battery that supports up to 30 minutes operation is included to ensure a reliable, uninterruptible power supply. The robust optimized design and wide range of functions supported make TREK-734 suitable for a broad range of light-duty vehicles, particularly port and transportation fleets.
Industrial-Grade Computing Terminal with Optimized I/O Layout
Designed to support high-performance computing in harsh industrial environments, TREK-734 is powered by a Freescale ARM® Cortex™-A9 i.MX 6DualLite processor and equipped with a IP54 rating for protection from dust and water ingress and MIL-STD-810G certification for shock vibration tolerance. Moreover, TREK-734 features an optimized design to address the space limitations and installation challenges associated with vehicles and cranes. Unlike most rival products, TREK-734’s I/O ports are located at the top rear of the terminal for more convenient access. This ensures that cables can be easily connected in order to rapidly integrate peripherals according to specific application requirements.
Sunlight-Readable Display and Noise-Suppression Design for Outdoor Operations
To support operations in noisy outdoor environments, TREK-734 is equipped with dual high-volume speakers and two noise-canceling microphones that enhance sound quality and eliminate ambient sound. For shipping port deployments, these features can ensure noise from cargo-handling/loading equipment, such as cranes and forklifts, does not hinder audio communications. Another key feature is the 8” TFT LCD panel offers a display brightness of 750 nits, which ensures readability in direct sunlight and suitability for outdoor usage. Additionally, the provision of five programmable function keys with LED backlighting allows workers to conveniently operate the terminal even in low-light environments.
High Connectivity and Expandability for Application-Specific Customization
Uninterrupted data transmissions are crucial for fleet management. To satisfy this requirement, TREK-734 is equipped with LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS capabilities for wireless communication, real-time data transmissions, and location monitoring. Meanwhile, the built-in CAN bus interface with raw CAN, J1939, and OBD-II/ISO 15765 support provides an efficient, low-cost in-vehicle network that allows communication between with vehicle subsystems and diagnostics monitoring. TREK-734 can also be integrated with additional peripherals, such as a barcode scanner, printer, or card reader, as well as advanced driver assistance systems, such as a tire-pressure monitoring system or lane departure warning system, to enhance safety and increase functionality. Finally, Advantech’s Android SDK is included with this product free of charge to streamline integration and facilitate the development of custom applications.
