New NotePad V Universal Computer Cradle
Gamber-Johnson, an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting solutions, announces the release of a new universal computer cradle, the NotePad V—a rugged mounting cradle for most of the computers currently in the marketplace today. The NotePad V (Item No. 7160-0250) is the next version of universal computer cradles in a long line of industry proven cradles from Gamber-Johnson.
When the Notepad V was designed, the company kept five crucial areas of importance in mind: security, function, safety, aesthetics and installation. Using each of the five crucial areas as guidelines, Gamber-Johnson was able to improve upon its current NotePad IV cradle design and still keep the features that had made the NotePad series so popular.
The result is a NotePad V universal computer cradle with added security, special "flanged" side clips that provide high strength (computers cannot be removed by bending the side clip), new heavy-duty keyed lock securely closes chassis when activated, and computer is supported on all sides by strengthened clip design.
