Certified Tough. IP65 & First with MIL-STD-810G

Panasonic engineers continually work to ensure that Toughbook® products can withstand hard knocks and harsh conditions every day—and over the long term. Toughbook computers include many features that make them more durable and longer-lasting than conventional computers. They range from magnesium alloy cases and shock-mounted hard drives found on all Toughbook computers to the covered ports and fanless design that make fully-rugged Toughbook computers one of the most reliable in the industry.

MIL-STD-810G

Fully-rugged Panasonic laptops and Toughbook U1are the first computers to be MIL-STD-810G certified for a range of extreme conditions including 72" drops1, shocks, vibration, humidity, altitude, rain-, dust- and sand-resistance, temperature extremes and thermal shock. Each of the twenty MIL-STD-810G tests conducted have been certified by independent lab testing. MIL-STD-810G, which was created in October 2008, supersedes MIL-STD-810F.



MIL-STD-461E

Fully-rugged Toughbook models are also tested to the MIL-STD-461E standard methodology for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in Panasonic's R&D facility in Japan and certified by a third party. The certification ensures that Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers are electromagnetically compatible with other nearby electronic equipment. Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers do not generate unwanted electromagnetic energy that could interfere with the operation of other equipment, nor are susceptible to the effects of unwanted electromagnetic energy from equipment in the same vicinity.

Panasonic has various certifications that meet federal requirements for rugged computers. Below are certifications for the Toughbook 19, 30 and U1 models. For certifications related to MIL-STD-461 (EMI) or UL1604, please contact 1-877-532-8088.

Several Toughbook® models received advanced certifications for ruggedness in recent third-party, independent laboratory tests. Panasonic Toughbook 19, 30 and U1 are the first computers to receive MIL-STD-810G certification, the U.S. military's latest test specifications for resistance to hazards like rain, dust, sand, vibration, and extreme temperatures. As part of the certification, those same models received a 6 foot drop rating*, a significant feat for any mobile computer. In addition, Toughbook models 19, 30, H1 and U1 were awarded an IP65 rating*, the highest rating received by a computer in this class for resistance to water and particulates.

Panasonic engineers Toughbook computers to withstand real world conditions that are oftentimes much harsher than the durability tests they undergo. the Toughbook U1 has undergone a battery of MIL-STD tests conducted by an independent third party lab, and see how it survives the most extreme conditions.

* Tested by a national independent third party test lab following MIL-STD-810G Method 516.6, Procedure IV for transit drop test and IEC 60529 Sections 13.4, 13.6.2, 14.2.5 and 14.3 for IP65.
