Linux Powered Data Terminals

Data TerminalsDigitalquill’s data terminals can be used anywhere that you would use a computer, but do not need – or would not desire – a complete desktop system. They are a versatile and cost-effective hardware solution to assist with tasks including:

  • Data collection
  • Data inputting
  • Controlling other hardware
  • Monitoring sensors
  • Linking other ‘unintelligent’ hardware and other applications or the cloud
