Docking Station for Panasonic Toughbook 53
Gamber-Johnson, an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting, announces a docking station designed for the Panasonic Toughbook 53.

The new CF53 docking station is designed to maximize the space available inside the vehicle by using a small docking station footprint. Using rugged aluminum, the docking station weighs 6.5 lbs. without a power supply and 7.5 lbs. with an internal power supply.

Using the same docking mechanism as the company's CF19 docking stations, simply insert the computer and push the latch closed to dock. The latch has a built-in keyed lock for theft deterrence.

On the front of the dock, a light emitting diode (LED) power switch has been incorporated to allow the user to hot dock the computer without powering down the computer.

The CF53 docking station has two power supply options:
• External Lind Auto Adapter (Item No. 13786), sold separately; and
• Factory installed internal 120W Lind power supply.
