Bauer has unveiled a new tablet PC featuring specially developed hardware and software that it claims can facilitate working on construction sites and improve the entire work process.
The tablet has been equipped with an extra robust protective cover that is shockproof, scratchproof and protected from water splashes. A console inside the operator’s cab protects the tablet against theft and allows it to be connected to the internet via the DTR LAN module installed on the machine.
Bauer has also developed a number of apps to improve operation on site. The VNC-viewer allows the rig’s colour display screen to be viewed from outside the cab and to take screen shots of the display. The Skitch app allows photos and screen shots to be annotated and edited before being sent via the email app.
The PDF expert app allows PDFs, such as pile layout plans, to be edited and annotated before being emailed back to the office to keep everyone up to date with construction progress and on site issues.
The tablet also connects to Bauer World, giving users access to Bauer’s spare parts and services catalogue, plus machine-specific documents and operating instructions. Bauer says that other apps, such as Skype, QR scanners and memo functions, can also be added.
