GETAC'S new industrial tablet PC, the CA27, distributed by APC Technology , is now available in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The CA27 is suitable for the emergency services, telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation, military and mobile workforce industries. It is water, dust and dirt proof.
The lightweight CA27 slate-type A4 size tablet PC meets the US military's tough 810F standard (Mil-STD 810F).
This requires computing devices survive, among other extreme conditions, a minimum of a 90cm drop impact on hardened surfaces, such as concrete and steel plating.
This is an important capability in real-world applications of any tablet PC, from the warehouse to outdoor conditions, where the environment can be rough and the potential risk of application damage is all too real.
