Achieve superior performance with a rugged tablet

Mobile computing is essential to user productivity and operational workflow in many fields, yet many situations put mobile devices at risk. A rugged mobile tablet can help to protect valuable technology from rain, dust, dirt or sand encountered in many types of fieldwork. Rugged tablets may also enable users working outside to view the screen in direct sunlight, and can protect devices from extreme climates and temperatures or from the shock of impact or being dropped.

As a trusted provider of highly reliable, ruggedized computer and display solutions for mission-critical operations, Comark provides rugged tablets with proven performance in and protection from harsh conditions in industrial, fieldwork and military applications.

What to look for in a rugged tablet

While criteria varies between specific applications, a superior rugged tablet typically includes features such as:

  • Internal components that are resistant to a wide range of temperatures as well as shock and vibration.
  • A durable housing and exterior construction that can withstand shock, drops, jolts and vibration and that is sealed to prevent ingress of dust, dirt, water and liquids.
  • A shock resistant covering to protect the screen.
  • A display that can be read in direct sunlight.
  • Barcode and RFID scanners that enable greater operational efficiency.
  • Reliable power with hot-swappable battery options for continuous charging, providing power that can last through an entire shift or assignment.
  • An ergonomic design that enables workers to be productive and efficient while avoiding repetitive motion injuries.
  • Front and rear camera
