Weighing only 1.4kg, the new Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 is claimed to be the lightest fully rugged tablet PC currently available on the market. Despite its trim appearance, it meets MIL-STD-810F and IP54 standards for durability and protection against dirt, dust, water, motion, vibration, temperature and the daily knocks of rugged mobile life.

Designed to meet the strenuous everyday demands of users who always have their data with them, the lightweight Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 is useful for field personnel in the medical, law enforcement and public safety sectors as well as warehouse, utility and field service personnel. Application areas include on-site, menu-based data acquisition and computer-aided maintenance in the field.

Featuring the power-saving Intel Ultra Mobile Platform with Intel processor A110 and Intel 945GU Express Chipset, the Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 offers efficient mobile computing performance with long-lasting battery operation of up to five hours with one lightweight Li-Ion battery pack. Excellent for outdoor use, data input is hassle free thanks to the 8.4inch TFT SVGA display with touchscreen functionality and anti-reflection technology. The optional Sunlight-Readable 800nit LCD display enhances readability to ensure continuous use under bright ambient conditions. Furthermore, 12 numeric, four cursor and three function keys, all backlit, help with data input, menu navigation and program start.

Shock protection

To provide data and system protection, which is especially important for mobile systems, the vibration- and shock-drop resistant Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 features a robust, fully sealed magnesium alloy casing and sealed I/O caps and doors. The shock-mounted 1.8inch hard drive module protects stored data from damage. In extreme situations or if the unit is dropped, a built-in G-sensor parks the HDD heads in a fraction of a second, thereby avoiding irreversible data loss. In the event of theft, hacking or accidental damage, the Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 features password security options for supervisors/users that will lock the HDD if an unauthorised user attempts to enter the system. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) guards against unauthorised tampering, from software attack to physical theft. To avoid the latter, Kontron's NotePAC Tablet E100 also features a Kensington lock.

Granting complete autonomy in the field, the Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 provides embedded GSM, GPRS, UMTS (HSDPA), WLAN 802.11b/g and Bluetooth V2.0 class 2 to access next-generation wireless data networks almost anywhere in the world. For wired data transfer it integrates 1x 10/100/1000 Ethernet-T, one Cardbus and two USB 2.0 ports.

Optional accessories for the Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 include an external USB super multi-drive (CD & DVD write) that minimises system size and weight, and an in-vehicle docking station. The optional internal GPS module helps with navigation. The Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 complies with TÜV, UL and cUL regulations and provides EMC protection (CE class B, FCC class B) and MIL-STD-461E compliance.

The Kontron NotePAC Tablet E100 is available now with Windows XP or Windows XP Tablet edition.
