R11 Fully Rugged Tablet: Best Handheld Mobile Device Solution

Thin, light, and streamlined, the Durabook R11 fully rugged 11.6” tablet is designed and built for the mobility and durability so important to law enforcement, first responders, and emergency services personnel. Featuring the latest Intel® 12th Generation processors and Intel Iris® Xe graphics, FHD (1920 x 1080) LCD with Durabook’s proprietary DynaVue® technology, it delivers outstanding performance and visuals all wrapped into a neat, compact form. Drop-tested from 4 feet, MIL-STD-810H and MIL-STD-461F certified, optional ANSI C1D2 certified, and with an IP66 rating for maximum protection against dust, dirt, and water ingress, the R11 performs in all conditions.


Z14I Fully Rugged Laptop: Best Data Storage Security Solution

Data storage security for any company, organization or government institution revolves around two issues: storage and security. The Durabook Z14 fully rugged laptop supplies both. It is equipped with the latest NVMe PCIe SSD technology, providing up to 1TB of storage. In addition, it can accommodate two more internal SATA III SSD drives to maximize onboard storage and offers a media bay. And physically, it is designed and built to withstand the harshest of environments.

Security for the Durabook Z14I comes in two forms: digital and physical. It features Intel® vPro™ Technology (per CPU options), TPM 2.0, NIST BIOS compliance, an easily removable SSD, a smart card reader, stealth and night-vision mode, and Kensington lock. Optional security choices include Windows Hello, fingerprint scanner, and RFID/NFC reader.


S14I Semi-Rugged Laptop: Best Mobile Technology Product

The Durabook S14I rugged laptop has the latest 11th generation Intel® CPUs and a class-leading 4’ drop spec/IP53 rating. It is engineered to combine military-grade durability, field-worker functionality, computing performance, and long battery life. Built with a robust mechanical design and rigorously tested components, it meets MIL-STD-810H requirements. This tough, rugged laptop effortlessly breaches the boundary between semi-rugged and fully rugged devices.

Data uploaded to police officers, EMTs, firefighters, and paramedics’ mobile devices often contain sensitive information. The S14I is equipped with a smart card reader, fingerprint scanner, and hardware-based encryption to ensure storage security.
