We use the Wyse S30 winterm. We found that the optional bracket
allows us to mount these to the back of most LCD monitors. That really
gets them out of the way of spills, etc. Also we have great luck with
USB keyboard wedge Barcode readers with this Winterm. I recommend the
Windows 2003 server for the RDP, it is better featured than Windows
2000. The Handheld MES also requires the Windows 2003 RDP, in
addition the handheld guns are pricey, not to mentioned the additional
licensing fee from Epicor.

What brand/model dummy terminals are you using in a hot dirty shop? I
assume lcd screens and have heard of extremePC's that have no fans,
etc. and are very small that run on Windows CE. Has anyone used the
Epicor handheld units? What specs/os do I need to make sure that the
hnadheld/dummy/perhaps even a PDA device have so that they can run the
data entry modules in Vantage 8.0??
We are using Wyse 1200 LEs over an RDP connection that are holding up
well. I have configured the ini files for these units to boot up the
data collection client (only) automatically, and locked them down with
an administrative password (through DHCP & FTP). It works well. If
there is a problem, operators can generally do a first level of
troubleshooting by powering the unit off, turn on, use assigned username
for terminal (no password), and voila.

What brand/model dummy terminals are you using in a hot dirty shop? I
assume lcd screens and have heard of extremePC's that have no fans,
etc. and are very small that run on Windows CE. Has anyone used the
Epicor handheld units? What specs/os do I need to make sure that the
hnadheld/dummy/perhaps even a PDA device have so that they can run the
data entry modules in Vantage 8.0??
