RuggON Corporation's rugged in-vehicle terminal, the VX-601, is suitable for challenging environments such as intralogistics, cold chain logistics, waste management, mining, harbor freight handling, agriculture, and construction. It is a full-featured industry-standard computer, based around a powerful Intel Core i5-6300U 2.4 GHz CPU, with up to 8GB of memory, an 80mm M.2 solid-state drive for storage, and internal mini-PCIe slots for expansion.
The ultra-bright 1200 nits display dims automatically in low light to save power and prevent eyestrain. A special anti-reflection layer is available to keep the screen readable in direct sunlight. Dedicated user-programmable function keys provide instant access to important operations, including brightness and volume. A tough projected capacitive touchscreen (PCT) option is available for improved gloved operation.
RuggON specializes in rugged design, and the VX-601 features an operating temperature range of -30°C to 55°C – with an optional screen defroster/defogger. Waterproofed external connectors are available. The VX-601 accepts a wide power input range, from 9 to 60 VDC, for compatibility with almost any vehicular electrical system.
The built-in rechargeable 4500mAh battery pack provides 1.5 hours of working time for mobile use, or when an external power source is not available. Smart power management features include ignition sense support to prevent glitches caused by voltage transients. The power connector features any easy release hand-rotatable mechanism to prevent accidental power cable detachment.
