Mobile Assistant Provides Durable Computing for Field Workers

Panasonic Computer Products Europe : 11 February, 2010  (New Product)
The CF-H1 Mobile Assistant from Panasonic is the latest in the toughbook range featuring long battery life, rugged design and anti-reflective display for tough mobile connectivity
Mobile Assistant Provides Durable Computing for Field Workers
Panasonic has launched the CF-H1 Mobile Assistant to transform day-to-day tasks for utility and field service agents. Working in all weathers and often in cramped conditions, utility and field service engineers face a host of specific work challenges. The Toughbook CF-H1 has been designed with precisely these challenges in mind. With its rugged, ergonomic design, long battery life and anti-reflective daylight view screen, the Toughbook touchscreen tablet is the ideal tool to access applications and data in the most difficult mobile environments. The combination of portability and connectivity improves workflow and productivity in the field, at the point of service.

The CF-H1 is designed to withstand the rigours of outside, everyday use. The mobile assistant belongs to the Panasonic fully rugged product range and is MIL certified. Capable of withstanding drops and additional harsh working conditions such as vibration, humidity, altitude, temperature extremes and thermal shock, the sealed unit is IP65 compliant for water, rain and dust-resistance.

The Mobile Assistant has also been ergonomically designed with the mobile worker in mind. Operating with Windows 7 and Dual Touch capability, the device is lightweight with an easy-to-grab handle, making it ideal for single-handed operation with modern applications. With its 10 inch daylight reflective screen, information can be seen clearly in any conditions.

Utility and field service agents operate for long periods on the road and their technology needs to perform alongside them - even without access to power sources. As a result, the Toughbook uses the New Intel® AtomTM technology, Intel's lowest-power CPU ever; it also contains a high-capacity 6 hour battery and comes standard with a twin battery design, so that true hot-swap is available in any location to allow the CF-H1 to last an entire shift between recharges.

Used either as a tablet or touchscreen device, the CF-H1 has flexibility at the heart of its design. Optional features include an integrated 2.0MP camera with dual LED light for image capture and an integrated 2D barcode reader for data capture.

To ensure that workers have access to data irrespective of location, the Toughbook comes with wireless LAN, Bluetooth and wireless WAN c compliance. GPS is also available as an option. To secure information the Toughbook incorporates the highest-level security features with ease of use. Mobile workers can authenticate to the device via fingerprint, contactless or contact smartcard readers (optional configuration).

Stephen Yeo, Marketing Director, Panasonic Computer Products Europe (PCPE), said, "The Toughbook CF-H1 has been designed specifically with the unique needs of mobile utility and field service agents in mind. They need a device that is easy to use and a powerful companion during their work shift. With this latest Toughbook these mobile professionals can now do more, work faster, stay connected and be more efficient than ever before."
