Field Inspection is a vital task in maintaining energy and power infrastructure. To improve efficiency and accuracy in its inspection reports, one major energy provider in China decided to equip its field inspectors with tablet PCs to assist in the task. An appropriate tablet was needed, one which could hold up to the rigors of field use, integrate High-Frequency RFID to recognize and record inspection results, and wireless communication features to connect via Wi-Fi and cellular networks. With a reputation for tough and reliable tablet PCs, the company turned to AAEON for a solution.
AAEON worked closely with the company to identify their key needs and requirements, concluding the RTC-700RK 7-inch rugged tablet PC to be the best solution for the job. The RTC-700RK offers several key benefits which put it ahead of other choices.
The RTC-700RK is built to stand up to the harsh conditions of field work, with IP65 environmental sealing, and passing MIL-STD-810G drop testing of 122cm. The RTC-700RK can operate in weather conditions from -20°C up to 60°C and features a sunlight readable screen to ensure work carries on even outdoors.
The RTC-700RK’s compact 7” screen size makes it easy to hold in one hand while performing inspection tasks. Smaller size and lightweight also means the RTC-700RK is easy to carry around in the field all day without the deadweight and bulk of larger tablets. With Android operating system, the RTC-700RK is easy to use, and the hot-swappable battery allows continuous operation throughout the day.
The RTC-700RK features support for several wireless communication protocols including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as well as optional support for 3G or LTE cellular communication. The RTC-700RK comes standard with NFC and RFID readers and is expandable with several I/O modules to provide functionality such as HF RFID, 2D barcode scanner, and ethernet/COM ports. AAEON also provides manufacturer service for clients needing custom configurations.
