A new in-vehicle computer docking station is now available for the Panasonic Toughbook 31. The MAG 31 docking station from Gamber-Johnson is rugged platform with a front-facing docking mechanism for easy one-handed docking and undocking capabilities.
The MAG 31 Dock, an item that has been added to the company’s MAG line, has passed vibration testing standard MIL-STD-810G with extensive cycle testing on the latch and docking mechanisms. Gamber-Johnson worked with Panasonic’s engineering department to create the proper tests for the work environments the Toughbook faces.
“When evaluating new products, it is imperative we pay particular attention to the end-user experience, are mindful of their budget, and keep safety front and center,” said Brian Wagner, president. “The magnesium docking station line accomplishes all this. Magnesium has the highest strength to weight ratio of all structural metals, which improves the overall mounting system performance. Magnesium is also better at dampening vibration, reducing wear and tear on the computer and wired connections. Furthermore, magnesium dissipates heat that could damage the computer and it resists dents and other impacts for long lasting performance.”
The unit includes forward-facing ports for low-mounting capability, minimal cable strain and swivel resistance, USB 2.0 compliance, and a variety of antenna pass-through options.
The MAG 31 also includes two Ethernet and five USB ports and is backwards compatible with the Toughbook 30.
