Compact Handheld Tablet Cmputer
The FieldBook by Logic Instrument is a smaller and lighter version of a standard tablet computer. Measuring a compact 8.9 x 5.7 x 1.9 inches and weighing only about three pounds, the FieldBook is designed for applications where a full-size rugged tablet is too heavy and bulky. Despite its smaller size, the FieldBook hardly compromises: the 7-inch touch screen is small but offers full 1024 x 600 resolution, all I/O is via standard ports, and the device offers a wealth of optional integrated data collection and wireless functionality such as scanning, RFID, GPS and 3G radio.

Light-weight tablet computers or convertible notebook computers that can also be used as tablets provide unparalleled mobility and versatility in battlefield operations. They can be operated via touch, digitizer, or keyboard; they offer advanced onboard wireless communication capabilities; they may include GPS and advanced security provisions; and they are still completely sealed and rugged enough to handle even extreme environmental conditions.
Available is a full range of ruggedized and militarized notebook computers with bright and sunlight-readable 13.3, 14.1 and 15.0-inch displays. Depending on the application, select the Getac P475M Trooper multi-purpose notebook with built-in 3G communication, the Getac B305M with a super-bright LCD and 12-hour operation, the Getac M235M with its 1400 x 1050 accelerated display, or the Getac A795M that accommodates two PCI or PCIe cards.
Rugged Attache Computers
Our rugged attache computers combine the convenient clamshell laptop form factor with deeper housings that can accommodate standard full-length ISA and/or PCI expansion cards that allow users to build customized test, monitoring and diagnostic equipment. The units, available with 15 or 17-inch displays, can handle remote field environments, and MILSPEC connector panels are available to provide added protection. Get power from any AC or DC source from 90 to 265 VAC and 10 to 30 VDC.
Ruggedized Add-In Computers
Logic Instruments offers a full lineup of ruggedized add-in computers. While still being portable, these machines are larger and more substantial than laptops because they include expansion slots supporting a variety of standards. Depending on the model, they can accommodate long ISA/PCI/PCIe cards, 3U cPCI and PXI modules, PCI SBC or even dual SBCs along with customer specific function modules such as encryption devices, receivers and decoders. These RPCs allow you to create field portable systems without having to start from scratch.
Ruggedized Display Systems
Logic Intrument single and dual screen ruggedized display systems offer highly portable display solutions for mobile applications. The RDU HB 1200 (see image) provides full sunlight readability with 1200 nit luminance and a wide range of universal inputs. The 17" SXGA DBEF-enhanced TFT displays high speed video images without smearing or ghosting and has a full 100:1 digitally or manually controlled dimming range. Also available is the dual-screen RMDDU with two 16:10 format WUXGA 1920x1200 LCD displays in a 2U rack mount package and two independent video controllers.
We offer instrument controllers both as self-contained 4U-height units (see image) or in a portable notebook form factor. Both solutions are heavily ruggedized and fully capable of handling operating and transport shock and vibration. Instrument control can be via integral GPIB controller, conveniently placed I/O ports, or open instrument ISA or PCI interface slots.
MilSpec Computers for Wheeled & Tracked Vehicles
Designed for vehicle or aircraft deployment as a Commander's Data Terminal, our CDT is a full MILSPEC computer with display unit. Its case is precision milled from solid aluminum blocks with engineered heat piping and thermal extraction allowing operation up to 60C. Shock and vibration tolerance is provided for all shipboard, ground and air vehicle applications including those with powder-fine dust and direct blowing rain. An open Compact PCI and an open PMC slot are available for customer expansion.
Our customers have many and varied applications that require special mounting, environmental considerations, power, human interface and electrical connection. Logic Instrument is experienced in helping define and implement customer-specific solutions to those requirements. Logic can provide solutions from pre-heaters for cold weather operation to specialized shock and vibration protection to complete sealing for fine dust and moisture protection.
