Engineered for safety and new efficiencies
The RFID read-range on the Juno T41 R-AEI is providing an accurate reading at up to 3.5 meters (12 feet) away from the train for AEI tagged rail cars—and even further away for EPC tags -- critical for worker safety.
Workers armed with the Juno T41 R-AEI can provide critical business information from remote locations, smaller rail-yards and from repair facilities. Connectivity capabilities – including fully cloud-capable data plan choices, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth® - allow for instant communication between the worker on-site with the device and management requesting the information.
The Juno T41 R-AEI weighs just 0.5 kg (14 oz.), but its lightweight form factor is certified to IP68 and MIL-STD-810G standards, making it impervious to dust and water (from hard rain to submersion) and capable of withstanding extremely low or high temperature conditions (note details on page two of this datasheet), shock, drops and vibrations – all hazards that standard computers could not endure but that are business-as-usual in a busy rail yard.
The full-color, sunlight-readable, Gorilla® Glass 4.3” display screen gives workers an easy workspace for filling in forms, accessing documents and sending text messages. The built-in 8 MP camera provides photos and videos. With a standard 32 GB flash memory, the device can hold data from shift to shift. The integrated battery is designed for all-day work and an optional Extended Battery Pack adds another 12 hours of continuous work before a recharge is required.
Integrated technology for rail
In North America, Mexico, Australia and many other countries, the rail industry uses a very specific type of UHF RFID tag which is bolted onto rail cars for inventory and location tracking, called “AEI” tags (AEI stands for “Automatic Equipment Identification”). The European rail industry and some others use ”EPC” UHF RFID tags, which are also used in many related industries around the globe, including marine and truck transportation.
The Trimble Juno T41 R-AEI meets international rail requirements by reading both AEI and EPC tags at the same time. It also includes Enhanced GPS 1-2 meter (3-6 feet) positioning capability. The combination of these technologies provides rail companies with actionable business intelligence to provide their customers and to better coordinate loads safely and efficiently, as the product moves through multi-modal transport from production to final destination.
