Fully Ruggedized Tablet PC Meets IP68, MIL-STD-810F Requirements for Mobile Applications in Extreme Harsh Environments

Arcadia, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2005

Contemporary MicroSystems has expanded our offerings by introducing rugged mobile computing solutions. We are pleased to annouce the release of a ruggedized tablet PC that meets the latest military and industrial durability standards and complies with sound environmental protection manufacturing procedures.

The AMT-6010 is a hand-held or in-vehicle computer designed to provide mobile applications and a real-time, wireless solution to access information from remote databases via the Internet or intranet. The AMT-6010 meets Mil-Std-810F, IP68 (which means it is totally waterproof and dustproof) and is manufactured according to RoHS procedures, making it ideal for applications performed in critical environments such as military, aerospace and marine.

The IP68 enclosure is made of high-quality aluminum alloy, plated with a hard-anodized finish that meets Mil-A-8625D specifications, providing an extremely durable and scratch-resistant coating. A dual sealing technique ensures that the AMT-6010 not only can operate while completely immersed in water, but also meets the most rigorous EMC compliance requirements.

The front panel has no screw holes and houses a 400-nit, 10.4” 800x600 resolution TFT LCD screen with capacitive touchscreen. It also features 12 programmable function keys. There is an optional 1200-nit, sunlight readable screen available.

Further testament to the AMT-6010’s ruggedness includes its ability to survive a 3-foot drop, operate in temperatures ranging from –20 to 60 degrees Centigrade, and resist severe shock (40Gs) and vibration (10Gs) levels.

As far as computing power goes, the AMT-6010 comes standard with an ultra low-voltage mobile Intel Pentium III 866MHz CPU, 128MB RAM (upgradeable to 640MB), and a 20GB hard drive (upgradeable to 120GB). There is 32MB of onboard video RAM. Standard communication devices on the AMT-6010 include 10/100BT LAN, wireless LAN and a 56K fax modem. There are options for wireless modem and Bluetooth support. Expansion capability includes a Type III PCMCIA card bus slot, a CompactFlash slot, and two USB 1.1 ports. There is an optional docking station that provides AC97 audio support, 4 USB 2.0 ports and 8 RS-232 serial ports.

Other options include a vehicle or wall mount, a USB hub, and a hard shell carrying case. The AMT-6010 can be powered by the built-in (but replaceable) 6-cell smart Lithium-ion battery or the 100-240VAC power adapter. The AMT-6010’s ruggedness is matched by its stylish design and sleek appearance. Weighing just 6.4 pounds with the battery, the unit measures 10.9” wide, 8.7” high and is only 2” deep.
