Dakota Fluid Power Chooses QSI's QTERM-G58

Salt Lake City, Utah. 10 December 2009. QSI Corporation, designer and manufacturer of rugged human machine interface and mobile data terminals, announces their wireless handheld QTERM®-G58 is chosen by Dakota Fluid Power, a leader in hydraulic and pneumatic systems and service. The QTERM-G58 is included in the Fire Flow Pro® and ValveSTAR® systems provided by Hurco Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of products built for the testing, maintenance and repair of sewer and water systems.

The public's safety and property depend on the fire fighter having the proper water pressure to successfully fight a fire. With the Fire Flow Pro, the QTERM-G58's wireless Ethernet allows a field operator to collect water pressure data and GPS location from the hydrant without the assistance of another person. This information is critical in maintaining hydrant performance.

ValveSTAR uses the QTERM-G58 to track critical valve and hydrant exercising data, import work orders, capture GPS locations and create numerous reports. Operators can easily input data using the QTERM-G58's "finger-friendly" keypad and transfer the information to a laptop or office computer.

"We chose the QTERM-G58 because of its fast processor, wireless capabilities and sunlight readable display," said Josh Lambrecht, Software Engineer at Dakota Fluid Power, Inc. "Its industrial-grade hardware and water resistant display definitely hold up to the harsh roadside conditions."

The QTERM-G58 is a wireless and battery powered handheld graphic HMI with a transflective sunlight readable LCD display measuring 89 mm (3.5") diagonal. Features include a 200 MHz processor, resistive touch screen and a 24- or 40-key keypad. The QTERM-G58 is NEMA-4 rated and will soon feature Windows® Embedded CE.

"We are excited to be working with Josh and the team at Dakota Fluid Power," commented Glen Johnson, Director of Industrial Sales at QSI Corporation. "The QTERM-G58 has proven itself to be extremely rugged but flexible enough to meet the needs of each individual customer. This is why the QTERM-G58 is a great fit for Dakota Fluid Power's innovative solutions."
