How Are Rugged Tablet PCs Tested for Ruggedness?

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.

Things To Know About Rugged And Non-Rugged Touch Screens

Let’s learn a bit about different touch screens that are found on consumer and commercial devices.  There are many types of touch screen technologies but we’ll focus on those most commonly found on mobile devices; resistive, capacitive, projected capacitive and digitizer. Chances are there is a touch device somewhere close at hand; touch it with something like a plastic pen tip and you can deduce if it is resistive or capacitive, the two most popular screen types. If resistive, it will pick up the touch point; if capacitive it will not.

This guest blog post comes from Tracey Spoon, Senior Systems Engineer at MobileDemand -- Like never before, we live in a connected world.  How many cell phones have you seen lately that do not have data service?  Most folks don’t really think about it but when the cellular industry migrated to all digital service (2G) way back in the late 90’s everything became data including your voice.  Today, we’ve blown through 3G and are at 4G, LTE and still wanting more.  The desire and need to be constantly connected applies as much or more to business as consumer.  And speed is often even more critical for the mobile worker.

Top 3 Things to Consider When Choosing Tablet PC for Forklift Mount

This blog post comes from Russ Martin, Southeast Regional Sales Manager here at MobileDemand. -- For more than 20 years, Forklift Mounted Computers, originally known as Vehicle Mounted Terminals (VMT), have been transforming the way products move throughout the supply chain.  Early implementations of these VMTs usually emulated traditional host-based terminal applications. Adding bar code scanning to the system greatly improved the timeliness and accuracy of the data in the system, allowing companies to be more attuned to their operational efficiencies.  As with most process improvements, these strides going forward did come with a step or two back. In the case of the Vehicle Mounted Computers, these back steps came in the form of power glitches, resulting in the terminal shutting down, or rebooting; usually resulting in the loss of critical data. These interruptions could cause a loss of productivity due to downtime that resulted while the user waited to log back on to the system to resume their duties.
