Getac Rugged Notebooks and Tablets Receive Military Certification

November 18, 2009  | 


The Getac B300 was one of six of the company's products to receive military certification for durability.

Getac's line of notebook computers and tablet PCs have earned a trio of military certifications, following independent testing. Getac can now market its computers with MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F and IP65 labels, because the computers continued to operate after exposure to severe environmental conditions, according to Getac.

The certification standards were established by the military to ensure a minimum performance level for any product used by agencies and organizations within the Department of Defense.

"We are pleased that our rugged notebooks, PDAs, and tablet PCs exceeded military certification standards," according to Jim Rimay, Getac's president. "Receiving these independent certifications, along with our recent announcement of resistive multi-touch technology, assures our customers that Getac continues to offer innovative products that can endure and perform under the most extreme environmental conditions."

Getac's products surpassed grueling tests in the certification process including a series of 78 consecutive drops from as high as 6 feet; sustained exposure to blowing rain, sand, and dust; exposure to extreme heat, cold, and condensation; and a variety of shock and vibration tests.

Getac products receiving MIL-STD-810G certification include its A790, B300, and M230 rugged notebooks; V100 rugged convertible notebook; E100 rugged Tablet PC; and PS535 rugged PDA.

In addition to receiving MIL-STD-810G certification, the B300 Notebook, V100 Convertible, and PS535F GPS PDA each received Ingress Protection (IP65) certification for dust and water resistance. Conducted by a recognized independent laboratory testing facility, the IP6x testing for dust was conducted in a dust chamber for 8 hours using talcum powder with units in the Off position. The IPx5 testing for water was conducted by using pressurized water from every conceivable angle at a rate of 3.3 gallons per minute.

Getac's B300, M230 and A790 notebooks, and V100 Convertible also received MIL-STD-461F certification for immunity against magnetic fields.
