The Toughest Tech Devices on the Planet

The Toughest Tech Devices Planet eרT חם Snapshot - What is Rugged IT? Rugged IT is hardware that is designed to operate in extremely harsh environments and conditions. There are three generally accepted levels of ruggedization: Semi-Rugged devices Usually enhanced versions of commercial off-the-shelf hardware (COTS). The components are the same, but they are protected better. Fully-Rugged devices Designed from the inside-out to work in extreme temperatures, to be impervious to being dropped, to resist shocks and vibrations and to be dustproof and waterproof Ultra-Rugged devices Designed to meet precise specifications for military use, are made to handle the harshest environmental conditions. An ultra-rugged laptop can be left out in a sandstorm or frozen in a blizzard. The Standards to Meet MIL-STD-810F (Military Standard) A miljtary standard, issued in 1962, which establishes a set of teśts for determining equipment suitability to military operations. ► MIL STD 810F includes țesting protocols to simulate environmental stresseș from rain, humidity, salt fog, sand/dust, vibration, shock, temperature, étc. Windows Įt is an all-encompassing standard that is frequently used. for ruggedization testing by mobile computer manufacturers. IP Certification Mobile computers are rated according to internațional standards for ingress protection (IP). 1P Codes classify the degrees of protection provided by electrical enclosures from dust, water and impact. Higher numbers indicate a higher tolerance to dust and water e.g. a unit with an IP65 certification will withstand exposure to dust and water better than a unit with an IP54 certification. The Toughest of the Tough Tech Devices Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 Mk3 Specs > Dust and dirt-resistant display, keyboard and touchpad A shock-mounted, removable hard disk drive Full magnesium alloy case with handle Why is it so tough?
