Panasonic Ungrades Flagship Toughbook CF-31 With Increased Performance and Flexibility: Increased Computing Power, Functionality And Connectivity
Panasonic will exhibit at DSEi 2011 Toughbook CF-31MK2 bringing increased performance and flexibility to its flagship ruggedised range.
Designed to access applications and data in the most extreme mobile computing environments, the CF-31 has become the fully rugged device of choice for military personnel. Whether working in adverse weather, wet conditions, underground or where space restrictions would usually hamper productivity, the CF-31 ensures that operatives can perform to their optimum at all times. The CF-31MK2, which is available in two different models (Standard and Performance) offers, increased computing power, a range of enhanced functionality and connectivity.
Specifically designed for field-based professionals who need advanced graphic performance or access to mapping applications, the new Toughbook CF-31 Performance Model offers the ultimate combination of graphics delivery and supreme ruggedness. Powered by the 2nd generation Intel Core i5-2540M with AMD Radeon HD 6750M switchable graphics, the top of the range performance model can switch between enhanced and integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics performance to save power when on the move. The Standard Model uses the performance Intel Core i5-2520M vPro with Intel HD 3000 graphics.
Increased Management Functionality
The CF-31 also includes the new Toughbook Dashboard designed to simply and conveniently customise each Toughbook to the userâs preferred settings, providing a user friendly quick launch interface. The Toughbook Dashboard also allows easy management of the device using helpful tools, such as the popular Panasonic Power Management Utilities technology and Panasonic PC Viewer utility.
For military purposes, the CF-31 also comes with a Concealed Mode for use in mission critical environments. Using this feature, the Toughbook can go into âsilence modeâ by disabling the Fan, the backlight, status LEDâs, speakers and communication (3G, W-LAN, Bluetooth) as specified.
Built To Stay Connected On the Move
Ensuring mobile workers can always stay in touch when on the move, the Toughbook CF-31mk2 offers optional the Ericsson F5521gw HSPA+ (DL: 21 Mbps) module with wireless ready connection manager and optional Wake On Wireless. It also includes a dedicated wireless switch allowing users to switch connections on and off to improve operating time.
Optional the device can be switched into the Anti-Theft-Protection mode by utilising the latest IntelÂ® ATP technology.
The Power to Last
To ensure that field technicians and engineers have a device that can work for as long as they do, even when access to power is lost, the CF-31 Standard model can operate for up to 13.5 hours running on Windows 7. In addition, the CF-31MK2 allows for an optional secondary battery pack to be attached via the multimedia bay in the Standard Model. This addition allows users to hot swap the main battery, ensuring the unit can be operated around the clock by revolving the batteries or simply extending the battery life of the unit by up to 6.5 hours.
All units also use the Panasonic Power Management Utilities technology to maximise power efficiency by managing the power of all relevant resources required by the CPU depending on each task or by definition of individual user profiles. In addition, the CF-31 runs on Panasonicâs own high-capacity battery cells designed to deliver maximum device performance and safety.
Screen Visibility Even In Direct Sunlight
The ability to see data and applications on screen in bright sunlight is essential for field workers. The CF-31 uses Panasonicâs Circular Polarising technology to deliver market leading clarity with brightness displays of 1,200cd/mÂ² and a very low reflection ratio on its touchscreen, 13.1â XGA display. The CF-31 also contains a floating mounted LCD design to protect from screen shocks.
Better Than Ever Reliability and Durability
With magnesium alloy casing, inside and out, and Panasonicâs anti-scratch coating, the CF-31MK2 remains the toughest Toughbook to date. It is MIL-STD drop tested and has water, dust, vibration and temperature protection giving it an impressive IP65, MIL STD 810G rating.
With HDD damping and rugged casing systems to optimise drop protection and an HDD heater and Panasonic foam packing system to provide flexible seals, the CF-31 can operate in even the harshest conditions.
The CF-31 is equipped with a Hybrid Cooling System combining a passive and active cooling process. In the passive process heat is distributed by pipes from heat critical areas to the cooling hub.
Flexibility to Configure
Adapting to fast changing circumstances is also an essential capability for a field device.
The CF-31 has a built-in configuration slot, which can be configured on a project basis at the time of order, for a 2nd LAN, firewire or modem. Interfaces in the form of 4 USB ports, a HDMI port and optional a Smart Card reader, a Fingerprint Reader, GPS and webcam complete the CF-31 product package.
