General Dynamics Itronix Introduces GD6000 Vehicle-Rugged Notebook

January 28, 2009  | 

The new GD6000 vehicle-rugged notebook, by General Dynamics Itronix, is now available for field technicians, law enforcement personnel and others whose offices are in trucks, patrol cars, utility vans or other vehicles.

Designed to work on the road, GD6000 notebooks combine high-performance computing with secure, wireless-network connectivity at a price that balances durability and affordability, according to the company.

Based on the award-winning General Dynamics Itronix GoBook VR-2, new GD6000 notebooks will soon be in the hands of field-service technicians working for CPS Energy in San Antonio, Texas.

“We needed a durable notebook for our field-service technicians that could withstand the bumpy conditions of a truck environment as well as all types of Texas weather and we opted to go with the GD6000,” said James Trevino, manager of Technical Services and Electrical Engineering for CPS Energy based in San Antonio. “It offered excellent display ‘viewability’ in direct sunlight and exceeded our requirements for computing performance so we can manage work orders in the field.”

John Schneider, business unit director for General Dynamics Itronix, said, “The GD6000 is our next generation of rugged notebook, designed especially for a mobile workforce. It meets their very specific requirements for durability and superior performance, while supporting increasingly complex applications.”

Commenting on the new notebook, David Krebs, director, Mobile and Wireless Practice of VDC Research Group, said, “When it comes to the reliability and performance of notebooks for the mobile worker, General Dynamics Itronix delivers a highly effective solution. The new GD6000 is well designed for vehicle deployments and provides computing performance that supports the increasingly sophisticated applications being used by mobile users, from the utilities technician to the police officer.”
