WLg-ABOARD/N (PI) is a rugged equipment designed for applications in road, railways, marine transportation, depots, warehouses, agriculture, manufacturing floors, docks, distribution centers, ship yards and lumber yards...it can be mounted in trucks, trains, tramways, freighter ships, forklifts, trailers, tractors or cranes, for material handling, real-time information transmission and inventory management.

It fulfills the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment:  from -25°C to +70°C (extended -40°C to +80°C), shockproof and vibration proof, IP66 seal rating for protection against dust and water projections.

The WLg-ABOARD/N (PI) is certified for railway applications (EN 50155 / EN 50121);  it is UTAC E2 certified (CE standard for electronic equipments intalled aboard vehicle), and can thus be installed in full safety aboard of all on-road equipments.
