Kontron Rolls Out Envoy II Mobile Data Server System for Vehicles

8/13/2004 - Kontron Mobile Computing, Inc. (OTC BB: KMBC), introduced the next-generation EnVoy II Mobile Data Server - an advanced, modular, mobile computing system designed specifically for installation and use in professional service vehicles such as police, fire/EMS and utility vehicles.

One of the company's flagship products, the new EnVoy II now incorporates Kontron's own CVX-Server. Meeting Mil-Std 810F ratings for shock, vibration and temperature, the CVX-Server features a solid, rugged, unitized aluminum construction to protect internal subsystems. It also offers impressive expansion capabilities with interfaces including IEEE 1394, USB 2.0, wireless 802.11b/g and a compact flash slot. An open mini PCI slot for integrated 802.11g and a half-length PCI slot give the user or OEM the ability to turn their MDT or in-vehicle embedded system into a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).

With its three-piece, space-saving, modular design, the EnVoy II allows the monitor and keyboard to be mounted near the operator while the server is mounted in the trunk, under the seat, in the glove box or elsewhere -- away from the passenger area.

The company plans to publicly demonstrate the EnVoy II for the first time at Fire-Rescue International 2004, an annual industry conference sponsored by the International Association of Fire Chiefs, held August 12-15 in New Orleans.

"With the EnVoy II, Kontron is proud to once again introduce the most advanced in-vehicle computing technology available," said Dale Szymborski, president. "With real-time data capture and transmission capabilities now a must for public safety and other mobile computing applications, the EnVoy II has the features that turn a vehicle into a centralized mobile command center."

Key EnVoy II specifications include:

The EnVoy II may be ordered now from Kontron Mobile Computing and authorized value-added resellers. Pricing starts at $4,995 (actual pricing will vary with quantities and specifications). For information, customers can contact Kontron Mobile Computing at 888-343-5396.
