DURABOOK Expands 11 Inch Rugged Tablet Line With R11L

Durabook Americas, Inc., the North American subsidiary of Twinhead International Corporation, today announced an expansion of its 11-inch rugged tablet portfolio. The brand currently offers the ultra-rugged U11, which meets the needs of workers in the most extreme environment, like those found in the military and public safety, as well as the higher performance R11, which features 8th Generation Intel®Core™ processors, ideal for complex computing and graphics needs often found in markets like oil and gas, and field service. The new R11L fills the need for a value offering in the 11-inch rugged tablet space and is designed for markets like retail, logistics and hospitality and applications like workforce management, asset/inventory management, mobile POS, line-busting, in-aisle assistance, and table service.

“The eleven-inch space is proving to be the sweet spot for rugged tablets,” said Tom Wang, COO, Durabook Americas. “While ten-inch devices are also popular, the smaller screen and limited ability for customization are issues our customers have raised. Mobile workers in the military, public safety, oil and gas, manufacturing, logistics, and other markets appreciate the fact that this size device is highly portable, offers more opportunities for customization, and includes a screen size that is ideal for viewing and engaging with applications. Our customers don’t want one version of a device for every application, rather, a range of eleven-inch devices that address value, performance, and durability. The R11L fills the gap in our product line, delivering the value option some of our customers’ desire.”


Ideal for markets like retail, warehousing, and logistics, the R11L is equipped with an Intel® Pentium 4417U 2.3GHz processor with Intel® HD Graphics 610 GPU, 4GB DDR of RAM, and a 64GB SSD, creating a more affordable rugged option for companies with field workers that have less intensive data processing needs.


The R11L has many available expansion options, including LF/HF RFID, smartcard reader, barcode reader, and a magnetic stripe reader, making it an attractive solution for companies in warehousing, logistics, and retail. The new device provides a host of integrated data-capture modules for several versatile ways to retrieve information on the move.


The R11L runs Windows® 10 Pro, making it a powerful, enterprise-class, rugged mobile computing solution. At just 0.78″ (20mm) thin and weighing only 2.7lb (1.2kg), the device is highly portable. It has an 11.6″ FHD (1920 x 1080) DynaVue® sunlight readable LCD. The 10-point capacitive multi-touch panel can be used with a glove, stylus, or finger, even if the screen is wet, optimizing the device’s usability regardless of work conditions. With up to 16 hours of battery life, the R11L can power through a full shift without the need for recharging. Reliable connectivity and high-speed data transmission are delivered via an Intel® Dual Band Wireless AC 9260 and Bluetooth® V5.0.


With an IP65 rating and MIL-STD-810G certification for drop, shock, vibration, dust, sand, explosive atmosphere, high/low temperature, and more, plus ANSI 12.12.01 C1D2 certification, the R11L can be dropped into almost any operating environment and deliver reliable performance.
