RuggON Produces First Passport-Reading Tablet

A durable Windows tablet called the PM-311B, prioritising a visible image under direct sunlight, has been introduced by RuggON.

With 850 cd/m² of brightness, optical bonding and anti-reflection/anti-fingerprint coatings, RuggON says that the tablet is perfectly suited for outdoor workers. It can also be used in applications requiring high levels of security: it is said to be the world’s first tablet that can read up to three lines of machine-readable zone (MRZ) data, meaning that it can capture and identify data from passports, Visas and credit cards. In addition, the unit features a 508 dpi fingerprint reader. Both of these are optional features.

The SSD is 128GB or 256GB as standard, but can be replaced with an optional encrypted 128GB FIPS 140-2 Level II SSD. In addition, a one button push function will erase all SSD data. A Janus USB Ignition key security solution can be fitted.

RuggON has built the tablet to meet IP65 and MIL-STD-810G certifications. It has a hot-swappable battery (4,200mAh) design as an option; the standard battery is 2,900mAh.

The tablet’s display is 7″ with 1024 x 600 resolution and Gorilla Glass protection. USB 3.0 (x2), RJ45, RS232, micro-SD and micro-SIM slots are featured.
