A more reliable mobile PC for challenging conditions

If you are looking for a PC you can use with confidence in factories and on building sites, in vehicles, in places with high risk from water and dust, vibration, impact and so on.
Our Toughbook passes tests for toughness set by the U.S. Department of Defense and has the largest share*1 of the world market for rugged mobile PCs.

Secrets of Ruggedized
120 cm {48 in} free-fall tests*1 (CF-31) and 90 cm {36 in} free-fall tests*1 (CF-19/CF-H2) are conducted. From material to construction—tough body

The hard disk is protected by special shock absorbing material (dampers), and the main body is made from impact resistant magnesium alloy. Because the tough design of the main body is tested to withstand falls from about 120 cm {48 in}*1 (CF-31), 90 cm {36 in}*1 (CF-19/CF-H2) even in challenging environments, work still can be done on that PC. Then, when moving from one location to another, there is no need to worry about putting the PC in a case. You can just take it with you as is.

90cm (36 in) free-fall tests
Sandwich construction survives 120 cm {48 in} free-fall test (CF-U1)*2

Free-fall tests from a height of 120 cm {48 in} onto a concrete surface(while operating) were conducted to simulate what can happen during hand-held use. The case surface is partially made from elastomer resin to alleviate external shock. Inside the case, a sandwich construction is used in which the main circuit board is protected on both sides by magnesium alloy frames. The end result is a rugged body that makes it difficult for vibration to reach the circuit board, even if shock is applied due to dropping.

Seamless Sealing design prevent the penetration of water and dust*2

The design features seamless sealing all around the body and a splash resistant keyboard. Even the connectors are protected by a metal door with a rubber seal. The computer resists the entry of water or dust from any direction. Outdoors, you can use it without worrying about sudden showers or blowing dust.

The frequently used connectors such as LAN and USB are protected from the inside by sealant. For the other ports, a metal door with a rubber seal provides protection against the penetration of water drop and dust. The connector sections are also protected against impact damage after falling.
