What Makes the ToughBox GMC-1001B Ideal for Rugged Environments?
March 13, 2013
The ToughBox GMC-1001B is a rugged mobile data recorder. It’s something special. For starters, it’s the only rugged mobile computing system which offers 4 TB of hot-swappable disk drive storage. While this isn’t a consideration for everyone, it really makes a difference when it comes to using it on the go.
One of the best applications for the ToughBox GMC-1001B is onboard vehicles. Using a computer onboard a vehicle brings forth a whole host of problems for a regular computer system. The uneven terrain and mixed locations can make rugged mobile computer systems invaluable. The weakest parts of any computer system are typically its moving parts, from the fan to the hard drive to the portable disk drives. Sudden drops, shear forces and hard impacts alone are enough to render a standard machine unusable.
This ToughBox model is usable in a moving target environment, even when it’s transferring a lot of data, such as a video feed. Video surveillance operations are one scenario where you’ll use nearly every feature that the ToughBox has to offer. With four removable and hot swappable 2.5 x 12 mm disk drives, the machine is versatile enough for long operations in hot and cold.. It has both audio and graphics ports, with the VGA port a VIA VT 1705 6-Channel HD Audio Code C. Rugged conditions suitable for the ToughBox range from 14 degrees F to 140 degrees F.
The ToughBox GMC-1001B can be customized and used for a variety of missions, from harsh environments to armored vehicles to covert operations. For more information about the capabilities of the ToughBox GMC-1001B, contact Germane Systems
