For those employees, durability makes a huge difference when seeking to set up and run a mobile workforce, particularly in unusual, demanding, and turbulent environments. Rugged electronic gadgets are specifically engineered to withstand and endure some of the most extreme conditions and harsh environments in which normal devices would succumb as they are not designed to work in those conditions.
Rugged laptops are suitable for working from a vehicle. But when an individual requires both lightweight and ruggedized devices, which is also portable. A ruggedized tablet would serve them better with the same reliability and endurance and also providing the same functions that of a laptop and weighs lighter than a laptop. Military personnel would greatly benefit from such a device that works the same as that of a rugged computer with enhanced mobility.
The touchpad from Panasonic is a type of tablet model computer that was designed and developed by Panasonic as a variant of the Toughbook rugged computer series. Panasonic launched the touchpad series of computers in 2011.
Design of Toughpad
Panasonic Toughpad are more suited for operations in light field applications in industries such as constructions, the aviation sector, the public works sector, where the device would be exposed to harsh environments constantly, and the chances of failure would be significant.
The touchpads are also designed to meet the same standards as that of the Toughbook computers.
The touchpads are ruggedized tablets, and hence, they are more durable and reliable than normal tablets. These touchpads meet the MIL-STD-810G military standards and the IP65 rating for dust, debris, and water-resistant protection.
Toughpads are engineered to withstand hard drops, shocks, and vibrations and work flawlessly in extreme environments involving intense heat, in bright sunlight, even in heavy rains and freezing cold temperatures.
The touchpads arrive in various screen sizes from 5 inches to 20 inches models. The touchpad display screens are hardened chemically, and it is directly bonded to the display board, which is how it is able to provide protection from the vibrations, drops, and other conditions it is exposed to, and at the same time, the matte screen improves the visibility of the display in sunlight and rain.
The internal frame of the touchpad device is made of magnesium, which is durable, and lightweight acts as a strong skeleton to safeguard the inner parts and the circuit boards from the impacts of the drops and shocks it is being exposed to.
Rugged tablets like touchpads offer a single device, all-in-one computer which can operate seamlessly and becomes handy for the person who is on a constant move and works in harsh environments
Use of Toughpad
Ultimately, as the use of mobile devices by customers grows, so does the expectation of businesses and field industries to offer high-speed data and service with operational security. For today’s workers, the larger format portable computers / rugged tablets are intuitive, easy to adapt to an environment where chances of them normal gadgets getting damaged are pretty significant, and an excellent way to enhance customer support, internal processes, and precision within the business.
