GETAC's Rugged GPS/PDA Features Camera, Altimeter and E-Compass

April 24, 2009  | 

GETAC Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of rugged computers that meet the demands of field-based applications, announced the latest addition to its comprehensive line of rugged mobile computing solutions. The GETAC PS535F handheld is the company's next generation, fully rugged GPS-enabled PDA featuring a built-in 3 megapixel auto-focus camera, altimeter, and E-compass.

These new features will enable field-based employees to capture field data on-site and transmit that data back to headquarters in real-time. In addition, the PS535F will provide pinpoint navigation support for improved location-based productivity, which is critical with search-and-rescue missions.

The PS535F handheld PDA is perfectly suited for GIS surveying applications across different sectors. The built-in camera enables instant visual data capture in the field, and the 3.5-inch VGA touch screen display with sunlight readable technology dramatically enhances the viewing quality of graphic-intensive files and detailed maps, even in bright sunlight or snowy conditions.

In addition to its GPS system, the product's built-in altimeter and E-compass provide advanced navigation features such as fixed positioning of longitude, latitude, and altitude, as well as the ability to provide directional relations between the targeted subject and the user's position.

The PS535F also features comprehensive wireless connectivity options, including integrated Bluetooth V2.0 and 802.11b/g WiFi. Users can connect the PS535F to a GIS server and instantly transmit or process data in the field using a GETAC Bluetooth modem or mobile phone.

"Our customers typically work in high-intensity environments and situations, which demand seamless and accurate information exchange between the main office and field workers," said Jim Rimay, president, GETAC. "The PS535F is the ideal solution for any field application that requires immediate response and action such as fire and rescue teams and park rangers. A great example is forest patrols reporting the location and fire hazard conditions to a fire center to assist fire rescue planning.

Ultimately, GETAC's PS535F handheld device improves overall operational efficiencies and productivity, which can be a lifesaving feature."

The GETAC PS535F features Windows Mobile 6.1 software for quick access to e-mail, the Internet, texting, and other means of mobile communications.

Weighing a mere 10.7 ounces, the device can operate at full capacity for up to 8 hours on a fully charged battery and is MIL-STD 810F compliant and IP54 certified to operate without failure under the most extreme weather conditions, environments, and everyday abuse associated with its user base.
