The semi-rugged and ultra-rugged laptop continues to play a dominant role in distributed computing applications where the environment and the user are both demanding. Even with the growing deployment of tablet computers, the ruggedized laptop is still the form factor of choice across numerous industries, including public safety, field service, and in-field research.
Users are comfortable and familiar with the laptop form factor and regularly need a standard keyboard for report writing and traditional I/O ports for driving peripherals. A rugged or semi-rugged laptop allows data collection and transmission, whether cold or wet, dusty, or prone to drops.
Glacier’s rugged laptop customers span an array of industries, organizations, and environments. Traditional harsh environments can include shock, vibration, water, chemicals, dust, dirt, and temperature extremes.
The user can also pose a “challenge” to the device. The computer is just another tool to get the job done, often getting wet, dropped, and banged around. That’s why Getac and Panasonic rugged laptops are built to MIL-STD-810G testing standards and are covered confidently by no questions asked, bumper to bumper, and comprehensive warranties.
Glacier represents the best rugged laptop computers in the industry.
Since 1989, Getac has been designing and manufacturing the best durable, rugged notebooks and convertibles through a product line for any environment and boasting Intel 10th Generation processors. Getac’s most durable laptops include the semi-rugged S410, fully rugged B300, fully rugged convertible V110, and ultra-rugged X500.
Panasonic’s Toughbook Series of rugged laptops are recognized by many as the industry leader. Panasonic offers the semi-rugged CF 55, the detachable 2-in-1 CF 20, convertible CF 33, and ultra-rugged CF31. All Glacier Computer rugged laptops are ideally suited for public safety, construction, utilities, warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, healthcare, and field-service applications.
Rugged laptops have several features that distinguish them from non-rugged consumer units. These include IP65 sealing, MIL-STD- 810G testing methods, covered I/O, reinforced hinges and handles, sunlight-readable displays, Corning Gorilla glass touchscreens, and waterproof backlit keyboards.
While rugged, these laptops boast significant computing power and features: Intel ISeries processors, 802.11 radios, 4G LTE including FirstNet, 32 GB DRAM, 1 TB SSD, and numerous accessories including vehicle and office docks, vehicle power converters, carry cases, and straps, extra batteries, and multi-bay battery chargers.
Boasting battery life up to 30 hours and displays that can be read in any lighting conditions, Getac and Panasonic rugged laptop computers are the ideal rugged computing platform. Common Glacier ruggedized laptop users include police and fire, field service technicians and inspectors, construction supervisors, chemical plant and launchpad personnel, soldiers and port personnel, and utility technicians.
Applications within these organizations include retrieving vital records, submitting updated conditions, updating inventory, ordering a part for repair, completing an inspection report, and transmitting and retrieving data during a public emergency. Class 1 Div II rugged laptops allow for these same safe operations within chemical, paint, oil, gas, and other potentially dangerous explosion-prone environments.
Getac and Panasonic rugged laptop computers come with a wide choice of upgrades options. These include faster processors, a media bay, a second hard drive, and night-vision capability.
While Glacier and our rugged laptop partners strive to provide the most durable rugged laptop based on the environment and application, a robust warranty is also available. All Getac fully rugged units come with a 3-year bumper-to-bumper warranty as a standard offering expandable to 7-years. Panasonic also offers leading warranty coverage, including on-site repairs if desired in mission-critical application.
