DT Research, today announced the DT306CR, DT318CR and DT310CR rugged tablets, developed with built-in Point-of-Service (POS) features in a rugged form designed to stand up to tough environments within restaurants and hospitality. The tablets are MIL-STD 810G rated to withstand four feet drops, liquid spills, vibrations, dust and extreme temperatures.
The sleek, modern tablets are available with a 6-inch (DT306CR), 8-inch (DT318CR) or 10.1-inch (DT310CR) LED-backlight screen and capacitive touch. POS capabilities are built into the high-performance devices and options include an EMV chip-and-signature card reader, encrypted magnetic stripe reader (MSR), 2D barcode scanner, NFC/RFID reader and camera. DT Research’s signature hot swappable battery design enables the tablets to operate continuously and improve user productivity.
According to a VDC Research study, the average annual total cost of ownership (TCO) of a ruggedized tablet is 22% lower than the average annual TCO of a non-rugged tablet. The study found average failure rates for non-rugged tablets is 15.2% compared to 6.9% for rugged tablets. Lost productivity, as a result of mobile device failure, was a leading contributor to higher TCO for non-rugged tablets. Mobile workers lost an average of 52-80 minutes of productivity when their mobile device failed.
