Tough jobs call for tough equipment. In environments exposed to extreme weather, excessive motion, exposure to various elements and harsh temperatures, you need tools that you can rely on. Rugged technology seems to be making an appearance everywhere these days and it’s understandable to see why. Once mainly associated with certain industries such as construction and engineering, increasing numbers of consumers and business owners are recognising the benefits of using equipment that can stand the test of time.
What Is A Rugged Device?
You may have heard of laptops, tablets and even phones being described as “rugged”, but what does this mean? A rugged device is one that has been specifically designed for durability. Standard devices are simply not suitable for use in many outdoor and challenging environments. They cannot withstand shocks, dust or water, whereas rugged devices can, allowing for use in more challenging environments. The rugged nature results from the equipment being made with specific materials, parts and seals, adding protection both internally and externally. Our new product has been designed with these features in mind, making it an excellent companion for when you’re in challenging environments.
Why Get A Rugged Device?
As technology and connectivity is fast becoming an integral part of our lives, we can’t afford to be cut off from the world. Rugged devices give you the opportunity to stay connected even in the harshest of conditions, where non-rugged devices will fail or break. Whether you’re trying to fix a broken pipe in a flooded kitchen, working on the oil rigs or climbing scaffolding, you can use the tools you need to get the job done that would previously have let you down. In terms of design, rugged devices can sometimes be clunky and heavy. We wouldn’t like to blow our own trumpets, but our new product not only withstands challenging environments, it also looks the part too.
Where Are Rugged Devices Used?
In times gone by, rugged devices were reserved only for those working in the harshest environments. Now they are being used in a plethora of industries, such as:
• Trades – plumbers, electricians, bricklayers, roofers and builders
• Field services and sales – insurance, retail and shop floor, forestry and park services, energy sector and utilities
• Scientific research – geological surveys and marine sciences
• Industrial applications – manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation and warehousing
• Military and government – armed services, field agencies and homeland security
You need troubleshooting tools that are rugged, reliable, efficient and accurate. Tools that can help you detect problems fast and communicate them easily to your team. This new tool comprises of all those things and more. Are you getting excited yet? You should be because we are!
