The rugged tablet industry over time has adopted testing standards developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the U.S. military (MIL-STD 810G), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and other organizations. These testing standards include test methods and certain performance guidelines that must be met in order for a tablet computer to legimately be considered “rugged” by typical industry expectations. These industry standards are extensive and include many requirements, the most often used being: high and low storage and operating temperatures, specifications on the tablet's ability to withstand numerous vibration and humidity conditions, as well as the ability for a tablet to endure rigorous tumble and drop tests. And if that’s not enough, various rain and powerful jetting water tests are employed to verify sealing integrity.
