APC Technology announces the upgrade of the popular V100 fully rugged convertible PC with new performance features including processor and memory upgrades, greater storage capacities and enhanced bandwidth and wireless capabilities. The new enhanced V100 PC will also boast ATEX (Category 3 / Zone 2) certification.
With better performance, memory, storage and wireless capabilities, the V100 offers the most advanced rugged mobile computing technology for mobile field workers and users of rugged PCs throughout the military, government, transportation, utility, public safety, field service, manufacturing and health care industries.
ATEX certification meets requirements for users working in environments where explosive gases are present such as oil refineries, pipelines, petro-chemical and mining.
The V100 fully rugged convertible PC’s new performance enhancing features include a processor upgrade from 1.2 GHz Intel Merom to 1.4 GHz Intel Penryn. The front side bus has been increased from 533 MHz to 800 MHz; and the 2MB L2 cache has been increased to 3MB. Optional memory on the V100’s RAM has increased to 4GB. Storage capacities have been increased from a minimum HDD of 120GB to a minimum of 160GB and a maximum capacity increase from 250GB to 320GB. In addition, the V100’s wireless networking capabilities have been upgraded to include draft 802.11n and the V100 now offers a Smart Card Reader in the standard configuration.
The V100 fully rugged convertible PC also offers Sunlight Readable Technology and can be upgraded to an industry-leading super bright 1,200cd/msq display, which provides unmatched outdoor viewability and screen brightness while decreasing reflectivity, thus preserving battery life. Combined with an active anti-reflective process based on circular polarization to absorb reflective light, the V100 fully rugged convertible PC’s Sunlight Readable Technology enables viewability that is more than six times better than competing solutions and creates a mercury-free solution. Other features of the V100 fully rugged convertible PC include 10/100/1000 Ethernet, integrated GPS and Bluetooth. It also features a waterproof keyboard and an SD card slot.
