11.6" Rugged Outdoor Tablet – robust and reliable without compromise

What our rugged tablets have to undergo as soon as they are at our customers’ or their customers’ operating sites …

The rugged tablet is used in harsh industrial environments

They fall on concrete floors, bump into equipment, scan goods in the pouring rain or record process data in the equatorial heat and sun. They spend nights in vehicles in sub-zero temperatures, are maltreated with dirty work gloves and shaken around on forklift trucks.

They have to tolerate that. For years. An industrial tablet that claims to be “rugged” and “outdoor” must therefore first and foremost be beyond reproach in terms of mechanics:

1500 grams of weight (it's not an iPad!) stand for the distinctly robust aluminum-magnesium construction.
The housing complies with protection class IP65, and not just on the data sheet: all interfaces are located behind solid and user-friendly protective flaps. Dust, dirt and water don't stand a chance.
Extended temperature range: operating temperature (-20° to 60° C) and storage temperature (-30° to 70° C)
Shock, vibration and drop resistance in accordance with military standard MIL‑STD‑810H
EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) in accordance with MIL‑STD‑461G

The outdoor touch display has to remain legible outdoors, even in sunlight and strong interfering light. High brightness and contrast values (850 cd/m², 1000:1) and a wide viewing angle (170°) are particularly helpful here.

The M116TG is very easy to read even in bright sunlight

In addition, an anti-glare treatment on the touchscreen surface and optical bonding (the stable attachment of LCD and touch with transparent bonding material) ensure a drastic reduction in reflections and perfect readability even in direct sunlight.

The right touch mode for every purpose: “Hand/Rain” in normal operation or in damp conditions, “Glove” for operation with gloves and “Stylus” with pen ensure optimum operability under all conditions.

Hot-swappable batteries (can be changed during operation) with long runtimes enable you to be productive all day long without interruption, even without a power supply.

Conclusion: Your reliable companion for professionals in industries such as industrial automation, process optimization, warehousing, logistics, special vehicle construction, IoT 4.0, field service and rugged/outdoor.

The range of possible options and accessories is enormous. Our experts will be happy to advise you!
