NEXCOM’s New Rugged Tablet – the MRC 1000/1100 – Built Tough for Industrial Rigors


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — The MRC 1000/1100, NEXCOM’s newest 7" rugged tablet, is designed to withstand the daily rigors of industrial use. The MRC 1000/1100 integrates military standard ruggedness, 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, high usability and secure login authentication. Combining a variety of optional accessories and peripherals, the MRC 1000/1100 accommodates unpredictable information needs of mobile professionals in construction, agriculture, logistics, and warehousing industries.

Designed for use in challenging environments, the rugged tablet MRC 1000/1100 meets 810F military standard and IP65 standards, provides a 4-foot drop protection, and has bumpers on four corners – which are effective at controlling damage due to knocks and falls when being used in damage-prone environments. The MRC 1000/1100 functions effectively under the circumstances of sudden impact, vehicle vibration, wind-blown dust, and rain mist. The anti-reflection MRC 1100 with sunlight readability makes it suitable for outdoor use.

To transmit data on the go, the rugged tablet MRC 1000/1100 supports wireless 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi and optional 3.5G networks. Connection to in-vehicle computers can also be established by Bluetooth pairing. The MRC 1000/1100 allows users to enter data using a physical QWERTY keyboard and touch screen, to take photos with the built-in front 2.0M camera comes, and to read barcodes and magnetic strips through expansion. The MRC 1000/1100 has up to 64GB storage capacity and provides fingerprint login authentication to secure the stored data.

In need of more apparatuses, users are able to connect the MRC 1000/1100 to an optional docking cradle which houses a multitude of I/O to allow for greater application potentials. Anti-shock and anti-vibration robustness is also ensured even when the MRC 1000/1100 is docked. The MRC 1000/1100 has a 3-hour battery life which can be extended by 7 to 11 hours by hot swappable external batteries.
