Gamber-Johnson has introduced its CF53 docking station designed for the Panasonic Toughbook 53 designed to maximize the space available inside the vehicle by using a small docking station footprint, according to the company.
Using rugged aluminum the docking station weighs 6.5 pounds without a power supply and 7.5 pounds with an internal power supply.
Using the same docking mechanism as our CF19 docking stations simply insert the computer and push the latch closed to dock. The latch does have a built-in keyed lock for theft deterrence.
On the front of the dock a LED power switch has been incorporated to allow the user to hot dock the computer without having to power down the computer.
The CF53 docking station has two power supply options available. The External Lind Auto Adapter (item No. 13786) is sold separately. The unit arrived with a factory installed internal 120W Lind power supply.
