TDS Nomad Rugged PDA

Finding a PDA that is rugged enough to keep up with your lifestyle can be difficult. Thankfully, Trimble has developed one of the most rugged PDAs on the market. The TDS Nomad Handheld PDA is the ideal tool for men and women that rely on rugged electronics. Built in laser scanner allows the user to collect data from 1D bar codes, while the camera is useful for grabbing images while on the job. With built in GPS, it would be difficult to get lost when you have the TDS handy. The GPS can pinpoint a location within 7-10 meters. The Nomad TDS rugged handheld PDA is suitable for most professionals that work in the field or other industrial environments where the weather and environment is not always the most forgiving.

The TDS Nomad is not only rugged, it is highly functional with the use of a 806MHz Marvell PXA320 XScale processor, 128 MB RAMS and the latest Windows mobile software. You will even be able to run third party applications from this rugged PDA. The color VGA screen is sunlight readable so that you will never lose functionality while out on a job. With memory card slots, you will be able to increase data storage when you need to complete a large job, or to swap information between multiple applications or devices. With built in Bluetooth capabilities and wireless communication, you will never be out of touch with your office. Unlike other handheld PDAs that are available, the Nomad has a touchscreen and a built-in keypad to improve functionality. One of the best features of the Nomad TDS happens to be the fact that you can swap out the 14 hour battery so that there is no downtime of use.

The TDS Nomad Rugged PDA maintains the MIL-STD-810F and IP68 ratings to make it the most rugged handheld on the market. Now your handheld PDA will no longer be put out of commission due to drops, shocks, water, vibration, temperature fluctuations, or dust. Due to its enclosed nature, this PDA can even be submerged in 1-meter deep water for up to 30 minutes. With so many uses, the Nomad TDS comes in different models to meet every individual's needs.
