Rugged UMPC

In October 2007, RMT began shipping the SwitchBack™, the first fully rugged UMPC. The SwitchBack™ meets MIL-STD-810F specifications for temperature, temperature shock, vibration and humidity and is sealed to IP67 standards. SwitchBack™ is differentiated from other rugged computers on the market through its unique modular design and FPGA based architecture. SwitchBack also features a first-of-its-kind, patent pending, status and control dashboard. This diagnostic application monitors and manages factors such as accelerometer data, power consumption, primary and secondary battery levels and temperature.

The SwitchBack's BackPack technology allows customers to incorporate multiple peripheral devices into a single BackPack. The BackPack attaches onto the back of the SwitchBack™ and interfaces to the computer through a special high-speed connection to the computer. Customers can order standard BackPacks or develop custom BackPack using RMT's Module Development Kit (MDK). BackPack applications can range from biometric data capture to test and measurement interfaces to machine controls to specialized communications suites.

Rugged Fixed Mount PCs and Tablets

RMT offers a full range of one-piece display computers--mounted in or on vehicles--designed for the harshest environmental conditions. These systems have ensured fast, reliable access to mission critical data in a host of environments including tanks, bulldozers, emergency vehicles, forklifts, airport vehicles and heavy mining equipment.

Each system meets stringent military specifications for vibration, shock, dust and moisture. The exterior housing is comprised of two solid precision milled aluminum halves with integrated passive heat-sinking, which increases the ability to handle temperature extremes. The interior is designed so that all boards are securely mounted with multiple screws and there are no loose wires or cables inside the machines to cause early failures.

The RMT line of touch screen display computers range from 10 to 15-inches and share many common specifications such as removable hard drive, high bright displays and wide-range voltage input which provides protection in extreme temperatures. Numerous processor configurations, RAM, HDD options and display options allow RMT to tailor units to customer applications. Specialized configurations are available for key markets, such as the 1205-PS which is a 12 inch system designed for use in Public Safety vehicles. It features a daylight viewable display with 100% dimming and instant screen blanking controlled by a rotational knob on the side of the unit.

RMT recently launched the Duros 8.4 inch Tablet PC which provides the rugged attributes of fixed mount systems in a mobile form factor. Duros features a daylight viewable display, hot swappable battery and multiple wireless LAN and WAN options and comes with a variety of mounts and accessorie
