Pi Star Selects QSI’s VTERM-G55 Mobile Data Terminal for its PiMobileCADS

No Comments 08 November 2010

Salt Lake City, cialis sales UT (PRWEB) July 31, 2007

QSI Corporation’s rugged mobile data terminal (MDT), the VTERM-G55, is now integrated with Pi Star’s PiMobileCADS and PiMobileRAMP product lines, which are used to service the para-transit and home health care industry. The VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal allows Pi Star to schedule client pick ups; monitor vehicle mileage, transit times, location and speed; and send and receive messages to and from the driver. Pi Star is able to communicate with the VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal via an external GPRS and CDMA modem.

The VTERM-G55 mobile data terminal used by Pi Star uses a graphic display and a keypad to interface with the user. The terminal can be equipped with two EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial ports and/or an Ethernet 10Base-T interface. The VTERM-G55 has a 320×240 pixel, color LCD display measuring 96 mm (3.8″) diagonal. (optional grayscale display available) and is viewable in most lighting conditions. Other features include 24-key or 40-key membrane / steel snap dome keypad with LEDs; 2 Mbytes flash / 16 Mbytes SDRAM; programmable speaker and real-time clock. The VTERM-G55 in-vehicle terminal is ruggedized to withstand the shock, vibration, temperature and humidity environmental extremes common in many vehicle-related applications today.

“QSI’s VTERM-G55 is very rugged and resists the day-to-day use in this demanding environment. Drivers can even spill soda or coffee on terminals, then clean them up and they still work just fine,” says Mr. Tracy Glende, President of Pi Star. “We especially like that the VTERM-G55 is very easy to program, simple to use, and integrates easily with a variety of wireless communication devices.”

The VTERM-G55 mobile data terminal uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarity® (pronounced Clarity). Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity Foundry®, a PC-based design tool, provides a Windows® environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the VTERM-G55.

“We are delighted that Pi Star has chosen to use our VTERM-G55 terminal as an integral part of their PiMobileCADS and PiMobileRAMP products. Their success with this terminal once again proves that QSI provides world-class mobile data terminals that are rugged, powerful, economical and highly configurable to a wide range of users,” says Tyler Phillips, Vehicle Products Manager at QSI Corporation. “We look forward to helping Pi Star to continue to grow their business.”

Question by Naomi D: Besides Ebay, online is there a good place to buy used items online. I need a good cheap portable ramp to ,,,?
to get a mobility scooter loaded in my van. It is just to bulky and heavy to take apart and lift every time.
Thanks in advance for any serious answers.
Matt, you’re sweet, but it’s not my scooter, just my van. I drive my sister who has cerebral palsey and her scooter is heavy and I am just not willing to dismantle it every time.

Power Chairs – The Cadillac of Mobility Devices

No Comments 06 November 2010

Power Chairs – The Cadillac of Mobility Devices

Do you want to get out of the house? Do you want to enjoy your freedom again? Do you crave the open air? Do you want to be able to live on your own terms? Power chairs give you the mobility and independence you’ve been looking for.

If you are looking to regain your independence, ask then a power chair is the right option for you! A power chair is an electric wheelchair, cialis buy but it is designed to be distinctly different than simply a wheelchair with a battery and motor. A power chair has a base with a plastic housing and the chair is more like a captain’s chair than the typical chair you see on a wheel chair. While electric wheelchairs look like traditional wheelchairs with a battery attached, a power chair is designed to be sleeker looking. It is slightly taller but like a traditional wheelchair, it is steered by a joystick in the armrest.

Power chairs come in either front wheel drive (which is the most common) and rear wheel drive. Almost all wheelchairs come with 6 wheels but power chairs have a slight difference in the configuration. Traditional wheelchairs have smaller wheels in front, larger wheels in the back (that you can move with your arms) and a pair of very small wheels at the rear to help avoid mishaps where the user accidentally tips backward.

This configuration is not necessary on a power chair since the design reduces the risk of back tipping. Power chairs still have 6 wheels, but the larger set are up front and there is another sent at the very front of the device so that you can get over a curb.

Here’s how it works: When you approach a curb, slow down as you get nearer. When the very front wheels (the “curb ascenders”) touch the curb, accelerate your power chair and the curb ascenders will lift the chair up the curb so that the large front wheels can grip the top of the curb. Then accelerate again, slowing down to let the back wheels climb at a slower pace (to avoid an uncomfortable bump).

In the early days of your power chair ownership, you’ll quickly discover that although the power chair can climb some curbs and steps, it can also get stuck because the clearance on the chair is fairly low. In those early days, you may want to bring a cane with you so you can push yourself off of the curb if you do get stuck on it.

Power chairs are the next generation wheelchair in that they combine the mobility and turning radius of a wheelchair, but they do it with style and power and improved design and comfort, too. If you want your independence and mobility back, a power chair is the way to go. Try out different kinds and find the one you like best!
