Introducing Toughbook mobile PCs and tablets
Toughbook doesn’t just lead the ruggedized PC and tablet market, it defined it. Since our first model launched more than 17 years ago, Toughbook mobile PCs and tablets have created their own niche in the world of mobile technology, redefining the possibilities of access to data and applications in the most challenging of environments.
From our earliest days, we have remained true to our heritage as an engineering company, embodying the ethos of ‘voice of the customer’ in everything we do. This commitment to listening to what our customers actually want, allows us to deliver the specialist, high-quality devices that characterise our range of solutions.
To understand the true benefits of deploying Toughbook-based solutions in your organisation, you need to begin by thinking about the challenges your mobile workers face.
What’s stopping them from being more productive? More efficient?
Working more profitably whilst being more easily managed?
The chances are a lot of these issues can be traced back to a problem with data or application access in the field. It could be an inability to connect to central systems. It could be the lack of a suitable power source that would allow their technology to stay operational. It could be something as simple as rain or sunshine that prevented them from working quickly and effectively.
And that’s where the Toughbook story begins. Panasonic equips Toughbook mobile PCs and tablets with technology that’s uniquely designed to overcome the access barriers encountered by countless professionals, in many industries, every day.
So now, when people are describing or discussing rugged or durable laptops, you’ll find they almost always use the word ‘Toughbook’.
The ultimate in durability and reliability, with MIL-STD 810G and IP65 compliance demonstrating they’re capable of operating in the most challenging of outdoor environments, Toughbook and Toughpad mobile PCs and tablets overcome the challenges of extreme temperatures, vibration, water, dust, shock, drop and impact.
To ensure our devices are rugged ‘from the inside out’, every fully rugged Toughbook and Toughpad is put through extremely arduous testing regimes in both our own specialist facilities and independent third-party testing labs.
Throughout the manufacturing process, Japanese engineering and compliance with the most stringent, up-to-date quality programmes ensure production standards are uncompromising and continuous development of our product range is inherent.
Of course, one of the greatest challenges faced by mobile workers is integrating the devices they need to stay productive into the vehicles they need to stay mobile. So our fully rugged Toughbook and Toughpad ranges are supported by specialist vehicle mounts, delivering the same levels of quality, reliability and durability as the mobile PCs and tablets they house. Using cutting-edge design and manufacturing technology and exceptional engineering experience, every docking solution is completely fit for purpose, no matter how bespoke.
The perfect balance of rugged durability and performance. Shock and water-resistant and capable of withstanding drops from heights up to 76cm*, they’re ideal for mobile users working with mission-critical applications who value total cost of ownership.
The beauty of our semi-rugged devices lies in the fact that they utilise a lot of the technology found in our fully rugged models, whilst benefiting from the more lightweight design and premium connectivity of our business rugged range.
Designed to offer protection for key components such as display, hard disk and keyboard (those most frequently damaged in conventional notebooks), our business rugged models allow professionals to stay active on the move – with none of the usual concerns regarding damage or failure of their mobile PC or tablet.
Key to the value of these devices is their ability to combine sturdiness with lightweight design. In fact, despite weighing as little as 1,690g, business rugged Toughbook mobile PCs can withstand drops from 76cm and a 100-kgf vibration test – as well as being splash proof*.
