Rugged Industrial Tablets
Mobile solutions are playing an increasingly important role in the process control of modern industrial plants. If, for example, production processes are recorded directly on site in real time and the data obtained has to be made available in processed form elsewhere, fixed systems reach their limits. Robust rugged industrial tablets are increasingly in demand here. Two of the most important advantages: Due to their multi-touch display, they are extremely comfortable to use and their all-round protected design makes them extremely resistant to the sometimes adverse effects of mobile industrial use. Rugged industrial tablets are also ideally equipped for outdoor applications or, for example, in industries with logistical requirements.
The degree of robustness (ruggedness) of an industrial tablet is measured according to two standards: The test criteria specified by the US military in accordance with MIL-STD 810G are usually used to evaluate shock / shock, vibration and fall resistance. The screen and housing of a "ruggedized" industrial tablet in this sense are reinforced or provided with protective caps / edges so that they can withstand falls from 1.9 meters (6.4 feet) onto a concrete floor without impairing their function. Protection against the ingress of foreign bodies (sand, dirt, dust) and water, however, is defined in accordance with DIN EN 60529. Protection class IP65 has proven itself for industrial tablets. It says that the housing, including all interfaces, is completely dust-tight and the high-quality PC components inside are protected from the ingress of water jets from any angle.
Our range of rugged industrial tablets ranges from the compact 8-inch model with an integrated, all-round IP65-protected keyboard to tablet PCs with screen diagonals of 13.3 inches. When operating the projected capacitive (PCAP) multi-touch display, the user can choose between rain, glove and stylus mode. The powerful tablet PCs develop their full potential in combination with the accessories that are precisely tailored to the area of application. In addition to the features that are integrated as standard, such as front and rear cameras, rugged industrial tablets can be expanded to include numerous options for communication and data acquisition. The customization options are diverse and include u. a. the matching docking station, barcode, RFID or fingerprint reader, hot-swappable batteries or an integrated multifunctional stand.
