    XSLATE R12 Rugged Tablets Exclusively Power North America's First Digital Incident Command, Fire Roster Solution

    Fire chiefs and battalion commanders around the world cite communications breakdowns as the number one cause of accidents/incidents during response.

    “I’m sure any fire, rescue or law enforcement agency will attest to the struggle of personnel tracking during mutual aid responses. If you don’t have accountability dialed for one agency, then can become a problem very quickly when outside agencies enter the scene and the incident commander is unable to confirm who is on scene or the current location of those known to be on scene,” Morrison explained.

    With a tablet-based solution such as the one BATT3 designed, all agencies have a way to quickly coordinate and track assets. And, since all three fire agencies in this Idaho county use the same ICx command board and Fire Roster system, they can immediately sync operations as needed to expedite their response.

It is not a surprise that rail operators are slowly but increasingly becoming acquainted with rugged mobile computing technology, whether handheld, or bolted to a forklift, crane or train.

    According to VDC Research, rugged tablet PCs cost half as much as non-rugged when it comes to TCO. The initial acquisition cost of rugged is higher, but operational cost is significantly lower – usually fifty per cent, often better.

    Webinar - Rugged Mobility is Getting a Reboot

    What You Need to Know About the Next Generation of Tablets, Handhelds, and Laptops for Field Service Applications: Nearly every field service organization has equipped its mobile workers with rugged tablets for over 20 years – long before the idea of the first iPad launched. However, the expanded computing capabilities of handheld devices, along with the shrinking size and weight of clamshell-style mobile computers, are leading many organizations to re-evaluate which mobile device form factor is really right for their different types of mobile workers, and the many different jobs they complete every day.

    SpawGlass Implements Tablet PCs to Drive BIM-Enabled Construction

    In selecting the tablet PCs, the SpawGlass team required a device with a barcode scanner, security protection, GPS functionality and a built-in camera with streaming video capability. After a technology assessment, SpawGlass selected the rugged Xplore F5 Tablet PC, designed specifically for fieldbased computing.

    “All the information – design data and RFIs – is at my fingertips. Better yet, if a specialty contractor calls with questions, I simply look up the details on the F5. I never have to go back to the office trailer to review paper drawings or supplemental documents because those documents are always with me. There is no question that the F5 saves time and provides better jobsite coordination.”

    Webinar - Mobile Device Drop Testing and the Science Behind It

    Consumer tablets can't withstand the impact of falls or accidental drops that are a risk in the field. Even if the screen stays intact, that doesn't mean the interior components are drop resistant, especially by military 810G standards. That's why Xplore drop tests each of its ruggedized tablet PCs during the research and engineering phases using MIL-STD-810G drop test standards. That’s a total of 26 drops on all faces, edges, and corners of the tablet.
