Rugged Industrial PDA 4.3" — E430 Series

Winmate's rugged 4.3-inch E430 Android handheld platform has been quite the success. The company is following up with a 3rd generation, the E430RM2 that now has a replaceable battery with larger capacity, easier access to expansion card slots, and productivity-enhancing new accessories. [See description, analysis and specs of the Winmate E430RM2]

Rugged 4.3" Handheld — S430 Series

The new S430M4 maintains the same popular form factor as the first-generation model, but is now faster and more powerful with an upgraded 1.5 GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor, and increased RAM memory and storage (1GB SDRAM and16GB eMMC). The integrated WiFi has been upgraded to 802.11 a/b/g/n for maximum wireless voice and data speed and flexibility. Most importantly, the new S430M4 now operates on Android's latest 4.2 operating system, which offers full quad-core support as well as numerous technical and user interface improvements.

7" Rugged Tablet PC

With the M700D tablet, Winmate has a very rational, straight-forward and cleanly designed basic tool for tablet jobs that require Windows, yet also a tool that's technologically attractive and highly customizable by partners/resellers that may use their own branding. But that's not all: this tablet also comes with Android as the M700DM4 with the same size and weight but slightly different tech specs.

The ultra-rugged M9020 Windows-based tablet computer

The M9020 runs full Windows on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600 processor. The tablet features an outdoor viewable touchscreen with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. Weighing at just 3lbs. (approx. 1360 grams), the M9020 delivers lightweight mobility in a rugged tablet. It is also equipped with a hot-swappable battery for uninterrupted operation, and features robust data capture with a 2.0MP front camera for conferencing and a 5.0MP rear camera for additional data capture. The integrated keyboard and physical function keys will appeal to those who prefer the usability of a full keyboard, but in a tablet form factor. For wireless connectivity the tablet comes equipped with Bluetooth v4.0 and comprehensive 802.11a/b/g/n dual band WiFi, Gobi 5000 4G LTE mobile broadband, and a u-blox 6 GPS module.

10.1" Rugged Tablet PC — M101 Series

The thin-and-light Winmate M101H 10.1-inch rugged tablet. We found a compelling combination of a bright, super-high resolution capacitive multitouch display, very good performance thanks to an Intel 4th gen "Haswell" Core processor, attractive design, and full-shift battery life, all in a light but sufficiently hardened package for numerous applications that require Windows in the field, but don't need the extra protection (and weight and cost) of a fully rugged device. [See full review of the Winmate M101H rugged tablet]

8.4", 10.4", 12.1" Ultra Rugged Tablet PC

Winmate's military-grade ultra rugged tablet PC series is designed for military outdoor applications. With a full range of CPU, from Intel Atom to Intel Haswell, Winmate's ultra rugged tablet PC series is an ideal tool to work in the field. By implementing the latest technology such as IPS panel, fanless design and flexible expansion to all kinds of wireless communication, our tablet PC can be used in the toughest outdoor environments.

Winmate Vehicle-Mount Computers

The FM08 and FM10 vehicle-mount computer run the full Windows OS on a quick, economical 1.91GHz Intel Atom E3845 processor. The two models use the same system and docking modules and only differ in screen size and keypad display. The FM08 allows flexible navigation via GFG resistive touch screen, programmable function keys, and separate integrated physical QWERTY and numeric keypads. The FM10 has a larger display but no physical keypads. Wireless connectivity is via Bluetooth 4.0 and speedy dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, along with a u-blox GPS module. These vehicle-mount computers are built to endure the rigors of the warehouse, and designed to fit seamlessly into forklift and other heavy duty vehicles.

24-inch Military and Marine Panel PCs

Winmate's 24-inch series of panel PCs for military and marine deployments was introduced late 2015. Designed to reliably operate in the most challenging environments, the Intel Haswell-based panels may handle fast real-time positioning, rapid-response logistics, gauge reading, automation control, complex navigation, etc. Numerous configuration options are available. [See Winmate military and marine panel lineup]

Marine-grade EAC Box PCs

Winmate's EAC/Marine systems were initially born to automation and M2M (machine to machine) applications. These EAC Box PCs are essentially embedded fanless PCs (no ventilation holes needed!) configured for various application processing and input/output control tasks. The platform offers several processor options as well as extensive and flexible I/O support both for connection requiring RS232/422/485 serial ports with isolation and auto-direction function, as well as digital I/O ports, standard USB and Gigabit Ethernet.

Review: Winmate FM10 modular vehicle-mount PC
The 10.4-inch FM10 is part of Winmate's modular lineup of Intel Bay Trail-based vehicle-mount computers for use in a wide variety of commercial, industrial and government applications.

Winmate FM10 vehicle-mount exceeds expectations
Technology advances very quickly these days, so replacing aging gear actually saves time and money. And sometimes an older product wasn't quite right for the job in the first place. Winmate's latest newsletter describes a situation where Winmate’s new FM10 Vehicle-Mount computers were retrofitted to customer forklifts for a head-to-head test of new versus existing. The result was a slam dunk, for the new Winmate FM10. [See FM10 series Vehicle-Mount Computer Exceeds Expectations] -- Posted Tuesday, January 19, 2016 by chb
