The Toughpad JT-B1 has a MIL-STD-810G rating for 150cm drops as well as an IP65 rated for resistance to dust and water. The device is able to operate reliably in extreme conditions that render typical tablets non-operational.

The tablet incorporates security features embedded physically into the device and offers hardware and software encryption, IPsec VPN, root protection, trusted boot as well as device management. These features are compliant with FIPS 140-2 for use in government departments and regulated industries like financial and health-care institutions. Compatibility with Mobile Device Management (MDM) tools are also available to allow IT managers to manage applications, secure devices from unauthorised use, and perform many other tasks.

The JT-B1 is said to be one of the lightest Panasonic mobile computers around and comes with a back strap that allows for one-handed use, ideal for a host of usage scenarios, including inventory control, eForms, field sales, field service, inspections, route delivery, and mobile point-of-sales.

“As the market leader in the rugged mobile computing space for nearly 20 years, Panasonic Toughbook has built up a reputation as a reliable solutions provider, with its engineering expertise, world class services, and extensive knowledge of vertical markets,” said Mr Satoshi Mizobata, Director of Toughbook Asia Pacific Group. “Our customers are confident in our products and their ability to deliver performance and return on investments.
