Rugged Mobile Devices Become Lighter, More Durable and More Productive

Major international manufacturer of rugged and innovative notebook and tablet computers, GammaTech Computer Corp., has announced that it now offers its rugged DURABOOK R11 tablet in four separate bundled configurations.

The R11 tablet with an 11.6" widescreen display is the lightest (2.73 pounds), and thinnest rugged tablet in its class. The device is suitable for use mounted in a vehicle, running critical mobile dispatch and mapping applications, or outside collecting field data, continually maintaining real-time remote communications in the harshest of environments.

"Our bundled R11 tablet configurations help take the guess work out of choosing the right product set up, while still providing an array of features and options for exact-fit customisation," explained Jen Chen, GammaTech President. "Certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD- 461F, and IP65 specifications, bundled R11 tablet configurations are a perfect match to meet public safety's demanding requirements to perform 24x7 in daily operations, regardless of location, or environmental condition."

GammaTech has developed four COTS (Commercial off the Shelf) configurations of DURABOOK R11 tablets to meet the varying needs of public safety professionals. Bundles can also be customised by departments as required.

The DURABOOK R11 has been built to either meet or exceed the most difficult environmental specifications. Its MIL-STD 810G rating assures shock, drop, and vibration protection, as well as the ability to withstand use in a wide range of temperatures. Passage of the strict MIL-STD 461F allows the unit to be confidently used in public safety endeavors which include aircraft or space-system applications. Its IP65 rating ensures the unit is sealed tight from damaging water and dust intrusion.

Additional features of the DURABOOK R11 which will be useful in a number of field-based industries include an Intel Core processor i7; M2 SSD storage; anti-reflective and sunlight-readable display; barcode scanner, supporting 1D, 1D/2D barcodes; MSR, smart card, and dual frequency RFID readers; built-in E-compass; Windows 8 Professional 32 or 64 bit; Lithium polymer battery and dual-battery charger.

GammaTech's award-winning range of rugged devices are designed to increase mobile productivity for business, government, healthcare, fire, public safety and a host of other entities.
