For eight years Sandpiper has provided the wireless infrastucture, handheld and truckmount mobile computers for McBurney Refrigeration in both ambient and -30 Celsius, cold store areas in the UK warehouse in Liverpool. Recently McBurney has expanded the use of LXE devices in their cold store area implementing LXE MX7CS handheld computers used in forklift truck, vehicle cradles and utilising Lorax near / far range scanners all supplied, supported and maintained through Sandpiper Corporation.
“Cold storage facilities create unique challenges for data collection equipment and wireless networks. Moving in and out of the cold all day creates condensation, causing computer screens to fog up, keyboards to seize up, and internal parts to corrode. You need a device built to combat these problems, which the LXE MX7CS provides for us.’ said Steve Serna of McBurney Refrigeration.
