Vehicle docking station: GammaTech Computer Corp. and Precision Mounting Technologies (PMT) have expanded their partnership in which PMT designs, develops, and delivers unique vehicle docks, universal cradles, and mounting infrastructure products specifically for use with GammaTech's DURABOOK rugged R11 tablet computer. The companies' combined tablet product offering is ideal for use in the hard-charging, on-the-move public safety and field services applications, as they provide users with durable, rugged tablet computers secured in safe, reliable mounting systems.

"PMT's proven track record, product design excellence, and superior support capabilities have made them an outstanding partner for us," commented Tom Wang, GammaTech president. "Our rugged notebook and tablet computer integration with the compact PMT mounting systems allows us a level of space efficiency that sets us apart from our competitors. The partnership brings tremendous value to both companies' customers."

GammaTech: Built Tough for Where Tough Matters
The call to those in public safety is to serve and protect, and GammaTech DURABOOK rugged notebooks and tablets are built tough to ensure the reliability and performance this vital sector needs. Field services personnel are relied on by both the commercial and residential sectors to service and maintain the nation's infrastructure. With multiple wireless connectivity options, a magnesium case, and top-notch drop, shock, and spill resistance, the DURABOOK name is a trusted partner in the field service industry.

"Our computer vehicle docks deliver key attributes including safety, ergonomics, and mounting flexibility, making them an ideal match to satisfy the demands of public safety and field service organizations," stated Brett Rowland, PMT president. "Their robust efficient design and all-aluminum composition provide a high degree of stability, allowing them to withstand vibration associated with vehicles constantly on-the-go. PMT laptop and tablet vehicle docks lead the industry in compactness."

DURABOOK R11 Rugged Tablet
GammaTech offers a full complement of rugged DURABOOK mobile devices that make perfect computing solutions for both the public safety and field services industries.

It is the lightest 11.6" rugged tablet PC in its class at only 2.73 pounds (including battery), yet remains tough with Military Standard 810G and IP65 certifications for drop, shock, dust and water resistance, as well as the ability to withstand use in a wide range of temperatures. The unit also passes MIL-STD-461F Army Ground and Air Force standard for military use, and is certified to ANSI ISA Standard 12.12.01 (formerly known as UL1604 – Class 1 Division 2) for operation in hazardous locations.

Additional features include a built-in G-sensor, gyroscope sensors, and a light-ambient light sensor; Intel high-definition audio; SSD 64GB/128GB/ 256GB storage; a Micro SD card slot for added memory capability and that supports SDHC and SDXC; a front-side, full HD camera as well as an integrated rear-facing 5MP camera; and a variety of wireless communications options and security features. Optional features include an expanded battery and keyboard folio. As with all GammaTech products, the R11 tablet can be customized to customer specifications.

"GammaTech's renowned rugged notebook and tablet devices and PMT's leading mobile mounting solutions make a perfect combination," PMT's Rowland said.
