New line of rugged tablet PCs for field service work

Mobile computing platform provider Advantech has unveiled a new fully-rugged tablet PC designed specifically for field service work.

The PWS-870 is a 10.1 in. PC with an Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor. It features high-brightness, multi-touch sunlight-readable screen.

Customizable, the tablet PC features the latest advanced communication options, including 4G LTE and 802.11 ac. It is drop-tested at 4 ft, and includes the integration of accessories into the main unit (like 1D/2D barcode scanner) to make the entire system extra-resilient to damage from shock, drop or vibration.

The glass is second generation Gorilla Glass, and the 10.1 in. display has options for high-brightness (800cd/m2), capacitive-touch, sunlight-readable use, as well as for a digitizer pen.

The PWS-870’s built-in dual camera (front and back), a 1D/2D barcode scanner, NFC and RFID.
