Why Rugged Computing?

  • Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • It pays to think long term when it comes to mobile computing
  • Rugged units have higher prices. However, the total cost of ownership was 36% lower for rugged notebooks and 33% less for handhelds and PDAs than conventional non-rugged versions when used in harsh environments. The lower overall cost is due to lower failure rates, the related impact on productivity, and other factors.

Specialist engineering

Engineered by Specialists, for sector specialists. All rugged computers share an underlying design philosophy of providing a controlled environment for the installed electronics. The engineering of rugged computers is to operate in the face of multiple challenges, including:

  • Shock and vibration
  • Temperature and humidity
  • Corrosion and abrasion
  • Minimal size, weight, and power (SWaP)
  • Acoustic noise reduction
  • Low pressure/altitude
  • Ingress protection
  • Electromagnetic interference
