Mobile Workers Now Require Safe and Reliable Docking Solutions for Both Laptops and Tablets in the Field.
Havis Inc. has announced that the new Toughbook Certified Docking Station for the Panasonic Toughpad A1 is now available. Havis, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, worked closely with Panasonic to develop this custom rugged mounting solution for their new Android-powered tablet.
To improve workflow, the Toughpad Docking Station allows users to charge their tablet and connect to peripherals like printers and keyboards. It provides full range of motion with a tilt-swivel device that easily rotates the Toughpad from portrait to landscape for more ergonomic computing. The docking station also features a barrel lock to ensure tablet security.
Mobile workers are increasingly utilizing tablets to supplement their laptop in the field, giving them the option to select the appropriate device for specific tasks. Regardless of which device they choose, mobile workers require a safe and comfortable mounting solution in their vehicle.
For example, a properly docked laptop or tablet should remain securely locked in place through sharp turns, aggressive driving and even crash situations. Havis docking stations are tested against demanding performance standards to ensure this level of safety in rugged environments.
The Havis Docking Station for the Panasonic Toughpad successfully completed extensive quality testing to meet and exceed Panasonic’s Toughbook Certification requirements. Based on years of experience in building rugged docking stations, Havis designed this new dock to withstand in-vehicle crash simulations, MIL-STD 810G vibration testing, environment testing and extreme durability testing.
No matter what the application or environment, Havis manufactures mounting and docking solutions for new technology for the mobile worker. To accompany its latest tablet solutions, Havis recently released the Desktop Stand for Tablet Docking Stations. With this universal desktop stand, mobile workers can more easily transition from the vehicle to the office.
Havis will continue to collaborate with equipment manufacturers like Panasonic to provide custom solutions that maximize productivity in the field. For more information on the Havis Docking Station for the Panasonic Toughpad A1, please visit http://www.havis.com/toughpad.
