The Ridgeline Tablet from Glacier Computer delivers portable, rugged computing power to workers in harsh environments, including utility and construction applications. The Windows XP device is capable of running most any application while withstanding extremes of water and humidity at extreme temperatures.
Each tablet computer is designed and tested to withstand repeated 3-ft. drops to concrete, as well as IP 65 sealing mandates. It is equipped with a convenient touch-screen interface that workers use to retrieve and send information. The 10.4-in. display offers options for daylight readable functionality.
Each unit comes with an integrated 802.11 a/b/g radio, Bluetooth, numerous I/O and many hard drive options. Users can input data via touch screen or pen.
"Long battery life and wireless LAN technology allow instant access to a database, work order, blueprint, parts list or another computer," says Dan Poisson, director of engineering. "With an integrated GPS module, the Ridgeline Tablet becomes an indispensable tool to an employee in the field."
