Havis Inc. has introduced a rugged docking station for the Panasonic Toughbook H2 hand-held tablet, according to the company.
The Docking Station for the Toughbook H2 provides a secure location for tablet charging and connection to peripherals, such as printers and keyboards. Users can easily connect up to three USB cables, with additional access to Ethernet, video, power and serial ports, according to Havis.
By utilizing a thin design and top-facing ports, the docking station maintains a low profile when mounted to other equipment or directly to the wall. Its easy-to-use strain relief bracket prevents loose connections and accidental disconnects. Havis also offers optional USB extension cables for more convenient access from either or both sides of the docking station.
In addition to the Docking Station for the Toughbook H2, Havis will also be releasing the Desktop Stand for Tablet Docking Stations. With the Desktop Stand, mobile workers can transition from their vehicle to the office with minimal effort and without having to remove the tablet from its dock.
This docking station was tested to withstand MIL-STD 810G vibration testing, in-vehicle crash simulations, environment testing and extreme durability testing. For the mobile worker, this testing ensures that their tablet will remain securely docked and protected through rugged driving conditions and extreme work environments.
