Rugged Mobile PCs that are Resistant to Spills and Fluid Contamination

Xplore Tablets & Fluid Contamination Resistance as Part of MIL-STD-810G

Spills happen. And it's not just water that can wreak havoc on your productivity. Whether it's jet fuel on the flight line, diesel fuel in the fleet yard or a disinfectant used on the fly between patients, your mobile workers’ devices are bound to be exposed to potentially contaminating fluids in their daily workflow. That's why you'll want the protection of Xplore spill-resistant tablets and accessories no matter your job.

Xplore Tablets MIL-STD-810G Tested for Fluid Contamination & Spill-Resistance

It doesn't matter how careful your employees may be with their liquid-resistant tablet PCs, fluid contamination is par for the course in everyday work environments. Lab technicians and EMS professionals, for example, intentionally disinfect their tablets with cleaning fluids everyday. Others in the Oil & Gas, Transportation, Manufacturing, and Utility sectors risk inadvertent rugged tablet exposure to contaminating fluids via splashing, spillage, or fluids transferred from their hands and gloves.

Intentional or not, anything less than a spill-resistant tablet will likely suffer the side effects of fluid contamination - which means increased mobile device downtime and decreased mobile worker productivity. That's why Xplore thoroughly tests each of its spill-resistant rugged tablets using MIL-STD-810G standards to identify operational resilience after temporary contact with potential fluid contaminants in the field, including:

  • Detergents
  • Disinfectants, solvents and cleaning fluids
  • Jet Fuel
  • Diesel Fuel
  • Brake fluid
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Lubricating oils
  • De-icing and antifreeze fluids

Our MIL-STD-810G testing methods gauge whether or not specific fluid contaminants will damage the hardware, software or electrical components of the liquid-resistant tablet or cause electronic or mechanical failure upon contact. We even ensure that the Xplore Companion Keyboard is spill resistant, closing over Xplore spill resistant rugged tablets to cover the chemically-hardened display glass for extra protection when not in use.
