Rugged Testing

Rugged electronics are just what the name suggests: these laptops, tablets, and PDAs are tough enough to withstand the worst of the elements, whether it is drops, spills, or extreme changes in temperature. These devices are the best option of a wide variety of jobs needing instant access to electronic information from a device that can take a beating. But how exactly do they determine if these devices are truly as durable and reliable as advertised? The technicians who make them put them through a series of 28 rigorous tests to ensure they meet MIL-STD requirements to qualify as rugged. MIL-STD is a testing standard by the US Department of Defense. This means that they are strong enough for the military. You can trust that if your device can stand to be used in the battlefield, it will be able to hold up to whatever you can throw at it.

Perhaps the most important test rugged laptops are put through are drop tests. To quality, these devices must survive 26 drops on each face, edge, and corner. Each drop is roughly the height of a person to simulate the most common cause of drops: human error. Other tests to determine whether an electronic can be qualified as rugged include the devices reaction to: water, high temperature, low temperature, change in temperature, dust and sand, vibration, sun radiation, ice, fog, fungus, and ballistic shock. With these rigorous standards, you know you can depend on your rugged electronic to stand up to the challenge. Shop our selection at OCRuggedLaptops.com to find the best match for you.
