Kodiak Mobile by Jotto Desk

The rugged CF31 iDock docking station from Kodiak Mobile by Jotto Desk will soon be released to the market. It will include a new robust docking interface that is designed for the CF31-30-29. This unit is constructed of welded steel and features an internal port replicator, internal "intelligent" power management circuitry, 2.0 USBs, and Ethernet. All functions can be controlled and monitored at the tactile membrane control panel located at the front of the docking station. Surge suppression, avalanche voltage protection, reverse voltage protection, emi filtering, transient voltage protection, low voltage monitoring, auto activation and shutdown, and user controlled timed shutdown are all standard on this unit.


Recently upgraded, the PDRC (Permanent Display Removable Computer) combines a vehicle-mounted display and full-functioning keyboard for heightened accessibility inside law enforcement vehicles. The updated PDRC works seamlessly with other Toughbook mobile computers and now features a 40-percent brighter touchscreen display, improved user visibility, and a reduction in connection cables. Supporting Windows 7, it provides a secure and ergonomic system for transferring mission-critical data in the field and helps broaden the functionality of ultra-mobile devices.
