RPC17 Series 7 - RUGGED NOTEBOOK PC with 17.1” LCD

The ‘Series 7’ RPC17 notebook computers with 17.1” LCDs combine the faster, gutsier 1.5GHz (Up to 2.4GHz) Intel® i7-2610UE CPU with larger hard drives, more RAM, enhanced external dust seals, more rigid screen housings, higher ingress protection ratings and brighter LED back-lighting. They offer in most respects the same features as the RPC15 models, with the added benefit of having optional higher resolution WSXGA LCDs, an internal expansion card slot, a DVI port, as well as rear and side chassis space to accommodate additional I/Os. This makes the RPC17 a more flexible option for applications requiring integration with 3rd party electronics and where additional external device connectivity is required; or requiring more graphics intensive applications need to be run.

Based on the proven chassis design that has made this model’s durability legendary in industrial and defence markets, the RPC17 is available in either Industrial Rugged (‘-I’) or Military Rugged (‘-M’) models. Like all its stable mates, these notebooks don’t just exceed MIL-STD-810G standards for vibration, impact, dust and moisture resistance, they raise the bar to new levels.

The RPC17 also shares some features and options with its stable mate, the RPC 15, thus making it an option for in-vehicle or field operations server where a smaller footprint is required. An optional Mil-spec connector upgrade, extra COM ports, internal vehicle power adapter (meaning it can be plugged directly into 12-32V DC vehicle supplies without an external power adapter) and optional GPS and 3G modules make it ideal for vehicle based applications in confined spaces.

The external DVI port for applications where a second screen is required (e.g. for field command and control scenarios) can be supplied with standard DVI pin-outs or custom pinning to suit specialised external monitors. And because it’s an Opentec product, the options for PCB, chassis and mounting system customisation are extensive.
