Used for the civil, mechanical and electrical engineering aspects of railway infrastructure, Toughbook rugged mobile computing solutions are intelligent and reliable tools for those who demand portability without compromising durability and performance.
At INFRARAIL 2012 opening today at Birmingham's NEC, Panasonic will be exhibiting the latest range of Toughbook rugged mobile computing devices, including CF-19, CF-C1, CF-H2 Field, and CF-53, developed to provide exceptional solutions for engineering and maintenance, whether it is for trackside work or for planning and managing railway infrastructure.
Specifically designed for workers whom, whilst in harsh environments, need advanced and long lasting performance, the new Toughbook range offers the ultimate combination of graphics delivery and supreme ruggedness. Their IP54 / 810F compliant dust and water resistance, ability to withstand heavy vibrations and temperature fluctuations completely unscathed is owing to their exceptionally high quality build and design.
The 10.1" AndroidTM powered rugged Toughpad FZ-A1 is ideal for highly mobile operatives working whilst exposed to the elements and in challenging locations, such as outside on the depot. The Toughpad is designed to meet durability standards on drop resistance and water and dust ingress. The Toughpad's CPU incorporates a dedicated security processor, which provides a high level of tamper resistance and frees up the multi-purpose CPU core for other tasks. The business matte, anti- reflective screen with digitiser provides true daylight visibility together with 10 hours of battery life, replaceable battery and integrated GPS.
More than just a reliable mobile PC, Panasonic Toughbook tailored mobile computing solutions can also provide a wireless connection that makes it possible to access information via cloud computing sites whilst still in the field or, access emails and data that is stored on a server elsewhere. Take photos of what you are working on, keep data secure by selecting a device with a finger print reader and calculate circuit times using the GPS feature. With all of this technology at your finger tips or the end of your digitiser, you will be surprised to learn that any unit sent back to Panasonic for repairs will be back with you within five working days.
In summary, Panasonic Toughbook rugged computing solutions offer extreme reliability, computing power and functionality when failure is simply not an option.
