Panasonic has launched its next generation in-line testing solution for the automotive industry.
The Panasonic Automotive Mobile Test Solution (AMTS) has been developed with both ease-of-use and automotive production processes at the forefront of the design.
It is based on the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 tablet, and incorporates a 7in capacitive multi-touchscreen display, an NFC contactless card reader, integrated high power infrared, and a 2D barcode reader, situated within the specially designed handle of the AMTS, which aids mobility in the production environment.
The solution is designed to be positioned on the steering wheel or the dashboard of the vehicle being tested due to its interchangeable, protective mounting insert. The AMTS also includes four programmable hot keys for one-touch access to important applications and functionality.
It is built with the connectivity requirements of the automotive manufacturers in mind with dual rugged connectors that allow USB communication plus protected ODB in-vehicle charging from a VCI device. This means that the solution is ergonomic for both left and right hand drive vehicles.
