Xplore Bobcat Delivers Industry Leading Financial Savings and Increased Mobility in the Railyard
AUSTIN, TX - April 12, 2016 - Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR) manufacturer of the world’s broadest range of high-quality rugged tablet computers, announced today it has been awarded an $1 million order for its Xplore Bobcat tablet computers from a leading U.S. railroad transportation company. The continued deployment and additional orders for fully-rugged Bobcat tablets is to help the railroad achieve cost savings and increase mobility in its yards.
“We have witnessed great success with our rugged tablet solutions in the railroad and transportation industries,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer for Xplore Technologies. “The Bobcat has proven to be the go-to mobile solution for our U.S. railroad customers and continues to deliver the benefits of additional financial savings, and increased mobility, with the information they need all on a single device.”
The railroad originally selected the Bobcat for its fully-rugged IP65 rating and extended 14-hour battery life – both useful features for efficient operations in a railroad yard. In addition to the tablets, the railroad ordered the tablet’s docking solution and optional secondary battery.
The Xplore Bobcat features a slim, lightweight design and runs Windows 7 or 8.1 operating systems. The tablet is certified MIL-STD-810G, rated dust and water resistant, and can withstand a five-foot drop and operate in extreme cold and heat. As the most full featured tablet on the market, the Bobcat comes standard with two full-sized USB 3.0s, micro SD and micro HDMI-out ports, as well as a micro SIM card reader and RJ-45 gigabit Ethernet plug-ins.
