Getac Technology Corporation, a producer of rugged technology, recently debuted the new B360 fully rugged notebook. Featuring 10th Generation Intel Core Processor with maximum turbo frequencies up to 4.90Ghz and 12mb Intel Smart Caches, the B360 is the first fully rugged laptop to be engineered for 5G in today’s marketplace, enabling enterprise mobility buyers to meet all levels of performance without sacrificing MIL-STD-810H compliance.
“Compromises between raw computing power and rough handling resistance may have been true in the past. We can all remember when unsophisticated anti-glare screens used on rugged laptops rendered the screens unacceptably dark for use indoors. Then there were the compromises in CPU power, RAM quantity, and mechanical hard drives required by the use of cooling fan-free cases capable of resisting incursions by water, spills and dirt,” said Mike McMahon, President of Getac USA
“Those days are over, but prior to the B360, nobody had put the whole package – 10th Generation Intel Core Processor, a design that is engineered for 5G, unsurpassed screen brightness and resolution, massive amounts of RAM and SSD storage space, shock resistance, IP66 total dust ingress and high-speed water spray from any direction rejection, proprietary salt water spray protection, extreme temperature and myriad input, output and custom data ports together to create a fully rugged notebook with virtually unlimited versatility.”
The design and manufacturing philosophy employed in every phase of the B360’s development meets the challenges found in the hostile environments in enterprise vertical industries, such as Field Service and Utilities, and Manufacturing. The B360 also features a salt-spray and fog-resistance option, multi-configuration LumiBond 2.0 screen technology and Multifactor Identification Authentication.2.
The B360’s 13.3” IPS FHD LumiBond 2.0 screen uses a clear resin to optically bond the Tempered Glass, capacitive touch sensor, LCD into a single unit for improved readability and durability. It offers a maximum brightness of 1400 nits at 1920x1080 pixel resolution and Getac’s proprietary sunlight-readability and anti-glare solution. It has also been rigorously tested to accept input from industrial weight gloves. For field workers in those parts of the country where stormy weather seems to outnumber sunny days, the B360’s Touch/Rain Mode automatically turns the touchscreen sensitivity down to reject rain and large areas with low electric charge. The combined settings allow the screen to be used under rain and when moist.
Getac Technology Corporation, a key subsidiary of MiTAC-Synnex Business Group (2019 annual revenue $40 billion USD), was established in 1989 as a joint venture with GE Aerospace to supply defense electronic products. Today, Getac’s business coverage includes rugged notebooks and tablet PCs not only for the military, but also for the automotive and process industry, the police, fire departments as well as utility, manufacturing, transportation and logistics customers.
