The Durabook Z14I fully rugged laptop has endless configuration possibilities to ensure the power, flexibility, functionality, and data security users need for their specific applications.

With multiple PCIe interface connections, the Z14I serves as a mobile workstation. The greater bandwidth supplied by these connections allows users to add more graphics cards, RAID cards, Wi-Fi cards, or SSD add-on cards, which allows them to do more, faster, and with less effort.

Using an 8th Generation IntelCore i7 processor provides the unit with the ultimate in computing power, resulting in a powerful, rugged solution. The Durabook Z14I laptop runs on Windows 10, as most organizations continue to use Microsoft Windows and allows the most flexibility when integrating other software and hardware.

The Z14I also offers graphic performance through a discrete graphic expansion box featuring NvidiaGeForce GTX1050 and GeForce GTX1050 Ti graphic chips. It is the perfect solution for on-the-go field professionals needing extra graphic computing power to provide rich, vibrant, real-time displays.

The Z14I fully rugged laptop comes with a two-compartment PCIe x 4 and PCIe x 1 expansion box. The box instantly and easily transforms the unit from a powerful laptop PC into a mobile file/data server. Providing unlimited expansion capability, the box gives the Z14I laptop more flexibility than ever while staying mobile and portable.

As a rugged mobile server, the Z14I has a hardware RAID (redundant array of independent disks) controller card for enterprise-class server applications. It can be configured for RAID levels 0, 1, 5. Data protection and redundancy are also provided by AES256 and TCG Opal V2.0 encryption standards.

Purpose-built, customized, military-grade connectors are available for most Z14I interfaces. Users can either have the factory install them or may change the I/O module themselves. Enhancing flexibility, these rugged connectors are ideal for applications such as the military, industrial automation, automotive diagnostics, exploration endeavors, and any activity needing waterproof connectors. Rugged connectors are available for the following I/O interfaces: VGA, RS232, RJ45, DC in, USB 2.0.

The Z14I is MIL-STD 810G certified (drop, shock, vibration, rain, dust, altitude, freeze/thaw, high/low temperature, temperature shock, humidity, explosive atmosphere, solar radiation, salt fog, fungus resistance). Along with an IP65 rating and resistance to an up to six-feet drop, the Z14I is able to withstand harsher environmental challenges than many of its competitors.

The DynaVue technology and high-definition multi-touch screen, offering the highest contrast ratio, enhance viewing clarity, even from different angles, and in bright sunshine or low-light conditions. 10-point capacitive multi-touch panel with four touch modes (glove, stylus, water, finger), optimizes the unit for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The Z14I device provides a media bay for several setup options, such as an optical disk drive, a second battery, or a second SSD storage.
