Magnetic Stripe Reader Rugged xCase for Microsoft Surface Go 2: Re-Engineered and Coming Soon

The next generation of rugged Surface Go 2 cases are being re-engineered with a new, sleek design that integrates the magnetic stripe readers (MSRs) into the case—it will no longer have an external add on attachment. The new version of the rugged xCase will still have superior protection for which MobileDemand is known. Likewise, our engineers are keeping the shock-absorbing rubber bumpers and rigid shell which are designed to fit securely around and protect your Microsoft Surface while you work. 

Premium magnetic stripe reader (MSR) xCase will include:

  • Case with integrated MagTek MSR
    • HB or KID emulation
    • Level 2 or 3 encryption
  • Back Hand Strap
  • Briefcase Handle
  • Snap Mount Plate 

MobileDemand also offers a MSR Surface Go 2 Bundle which includes everything you see here pre-assembled:

  • Surface Go 2 Laptop/Tablet
  • Premium Rugged Case
  • MagTek MSR
  • Pre-applied Screen Protector

Next generation Surface Go 2 case is designed for peace of mind investment protection with productivity enhancing add-ons.  This one turns your Surface Go 2 into a mobile store with a Mag Stripe Reader (MSR) to swipe credit cards on-the-go for line-busting, events, kiosks, mobile stores, informal retail stands, and more. The back hand strap and briefcase handle attachment, make the Surface Go 2 tablet easy to carry. 

Engineered for enterprise productivity, the MobileDemand Rugged xCase for Surface Go 2 is made to fit the Microsoft Surface Go 2. Improvements to the shock absorbing rubber corner bumpers, provides a more industrial look and feel along with a structurally rigid shell that supports additional productivity enhancements, like chip & pin payment modules, magentic stripe readers, barcode scanning, or 3D camera technology.  This case is also compatible with the Surface Go device.

An option for companies purchasing multiple devices is the ability for MobileDemand to apply custom asset tag labels to each individual case. Asset tags allow users to maintain an efficient, effective system for controlling and tracking the tablets.

For on-the-road applications, MobileDemand recommends the use of the tablet vehicle mount. It keeps the device safe and secure and is an ergonomic way to utilize the tablet when not in-transit.

MobileDemand also offers bundles which include the Surface Go 2 tablet, our protective rugged case, and screen protector, all applied by MobileDemand tablet experts.

Note: The SIM card slot is covered and inaccessible when the rugged case is on the tablet.
