Radio frequency forklift trucks, also known as reach fork trucks, reach trucks or clarks (after the forklift truck brand), are industrial vehicles equipped with a counterweight at the rear, designed to lift, transport and stack goods and other heavy loads, usually mounted on pallets or similar platforms. These commercial vehicles, equipped with hands-free radio frequency terminals, combine high power with such important aspects as safety, comfort, reliability, efficiency and productivity at work.
There are different types of reach trucks depending on their specific application. From light pallet trucks for receiving or order picking, to heavier and bulkier versions for industrial use or heavy logistics. But almost all work with these types of forklift trucks has a common need: Capture the data of the packages they move, record the operations they carry out and transmit all this information to a system that centralises and validates this information, such as a Warehouse Management System. Radiofrequency terminals are the ideal tool for this activity, thanks to their power, flexibility and freedom of movement.
In this way, forklift trucks with radiofrequency terminals are very useful for the correct management of logistics in important areas such as:
These industrial vehicles are equipped with radio frequency terminals in the form of a computer or industrial tablet and move through warehouses or logistics platforms to collect and transmit the information captured when moving products or raw materials from one place to another. But this work involves a number of special features in the case of radio-frequency forklift trucks.
Both the operator and the fork reach truck need total freedom of movement and the only way to achieve this is by means of a wireless system, avoiding cables that could limit their transit through the warehouse. Not only that, but having your hands free at all times allows you to drive and operate your forklift trucks more safely and efficiently.
In this way, the operator will be able to capture all the data on the products being transported and the logistics operations being carried out and transmit all this information to the WMS (Warehouse Management System), ERP or any other software in your company instantly, securely and in real time. Thanks to this ability to capture and transmit information, radio frequency terminals for forklift trucks are an invaluable tool for logistics control in a wide variety of sectors and activities.
We have a wide range of radio frequency terminals for forklift trucks and reach trucks. You can find terminals with a wide variety of features, capable of meeting the needs of any sector of activity. Radio frequency forklift trucks and reach trucks specially prepared to work in demanding environments such as industrial or logistic warehouses, places where dust, cold or extreme heat can be a problem. Or radio frequency terminals capable of withstanding the vibration of small bumps that can be encountered in outdoor work such as in ports, airports or construction areas.
This rugged industrial truck computer features the Mobility Edge platform, based on the Android operating system. It has high durability and 5-year application upgrades. Thanks to its intelligent coupling, it is easy to install and remove. The operator can switch the terminal from one forklift to another in a matter of seconds, without the need for support and maintenance. In addition, its LED illuminated display and ambient light sensor, together with its ability to work between -30ºC and 50ºC makes it ideal for outdoor work and environments with extreme temperatures.
Designed for use in the most demanding distribution centres, manufacturing facilities and logistics centres, the Honeywell's Thor VM3A for forklift trucks is the RF terminal that delivers unmatched operational efficiency. It has an ignition control that prevents the device from draining the vehicle's battery, and is easily mountable and detachable to the junction box.
Designed for the management of warehouses, manufacturing plants and cold or outdoor environments, the Datalogic Rhino II radio frequency terminal is extremely robust thanks to its 3mm anti-reflective armoured glass and its IP65/67 protection against dust and liquids. It is a flexible device, capable of working with Windows or Android operating systems and its 10" or 12" screen can be used with gloves.
This radio frequency terminal in industrial tablet format is easy to adapt to any industrial vehicle such as a forklift truck or reach truck. Zebra VC8300 terminal features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and works in both 2.4 and 5Ghz bands. In addition, it is a very rugged terminal thanks to its IP66 sealing with waterproofing and is resistant to extreme temperatures, shock and vibration. These characteristics make it ideal for use in demanding environments such as industry, refrigerated installations or in environments with rough floors or small obstacles.
Enables easy data migration from Windows to Android thanks to its mobility platform. It has 6 direct and 6 programmable keys to shorten processes and improve productivity. In addition, its ultra-rugged housing, excellent built-in loudspeaker and readability both indoors and outdoors make it ideal for working in particularly noisy environments such as industry or outdoor work.
"Radio frequency terminals for forklift trucks and reach trucks offer freedom of movement and can be used hands-free, increasing productivity and safety on the job.”
