Motorola today announced a new rugged mobility solution aimed at improving the productivity of warehouse workers - the WT4090 Voice Only Wearable (VOW) Terminal and the RCH50 Rugged Cabled Headset. This easy-to-use, rugged solution can replace paper-based processes with voice-directed solutions in demanding enterprise environments - in the warehouse, in the freezer, on the loading dock, or on the factory floor, resulting in real-time processing, reduced errors and improved decision making.
Built on the success of Motorola?s WT4090 wearable mobile computer, the WT4090 VOW is a hands-free, voice-directed, task specific tool that offers comprehensive wireless network connectivity, high-power processing and rich voice capabilities. The device?s robust voice features include support for voice-recognition, text-to-speech engines and Voice-over WLAN (VoWLAN), providing warehouse workers with up-to-the minute information to make business critical decisions. The WT4090 VOW can be customized for business needs by its three fully programmable keys, keeping operations simple. When paired with the RCH50 or a headset from one of Motorola?s partners, the tools offer an affordable, versatile and complete voice-directed solution.
The RCH50 is Motorola?s rugged, cabled, lightweight headset that enables hands-free, voice directed mobility solutions, and makes hands-free voice communications possible in rough environments. The superior acoustics that result from the noise-cancelling, waterproof microphone enables real-time voice communications, reducing cycle times and errors while increasing productivity and throughput. Designed for comfort, hygiene and safety, its ergonomic design provides full shift comfort while the ability to wipe down the headset and change the microphone windscreen and ear pad protects the health of the workforce. Additionally, a quick disconnect feature allows rapid separation of the headset, improving worker safety. The universal design is compatible with Motorola?s broad portfolio of rugged mobile computers, providing the flexibility to deploy the right mobile device for the job.
Both devices have passed Motorola?s stringent mechanical design tests for both stress and endurance, and can survive in the most demanding situations including extreme temperatures, drops to concrete and wet and dusty environments.
The WT4090 and RHC50 will be available globally in the first quarter of 2010 through Motorola sales and Motorola channel partners. For more info visit www.motorola.com/WT4090VOW
