Handheld computer: GammaTech Computer Corp., a manufacturer of rugged and innovative notebook and tablet computers, has made it easy for utility-industry workers to have the correct computer setup at their fingertips. Its DURABOOK R11 rugged tablet ­ the lightest (2.73 pounds) and thinnest unit in its class ­ is now available in four separate bundled configurations. With a vivid 11.6 in. widescreen display and certification to stringent MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD- 461F, and IP65 specifications, these units are a perfect match for the most demanding requirements and harshest environments encountered by utility workers.

“Workers in the public utilities sector encounter a variety of demanding, difficult environments in which they must operate,” remarked Jen Chen, GammaTech president. “Offering a selection of four commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) configurations, our DURABOOK R11 rugged tablet is a perfect choice to ensure the best setup possible for their particular needs. Plus, our exact-fit customization service allows each bundle to be further tailored to meet the most unique requirements.”

Designed for Demanding Environments
The DURABOOK R11 is survival tested to withstand the daily dose of drops, bumpy roads, moisture, and dust associated with utility projects. 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 for electromagnetic compatibility allows the unit to be confidently used in a variety of endeavors including aircraft or space-system applications. Its IP65 rating ensures the unit is sealed tight from damaging water and dust intrusion.
