Mobile computers: Estone Technology has long been a name to turn to for dependable rugged tablets and panel PCs. Now, with the latest iteration of our dependable 10” MR-100 model, we’ve added true computing power as well. The recently released new version of the MR-100 10” Rugged Tablet offers full-unit IP65 waterproofing, MIL-STD-810G shock, drop, impact, temperature, and ESD protection, and much more. Combined with the power of Intel’s Core i5 & i7 Apollo Lake or Kaby Lake processors, a match of durability and processing capacity that makes the tablet a perfect match for use in the field and the office.

The MR-100 is Estone Technology’s most rugged 10” Windows panel PC, designed for Windows 10 Pro or IoT installations, perfect for both traditional office and special industrial automation applications. The unit is available with Intel I5 or i7 processors in both Apollo Lake and Kaby Lake architectures, for applications requiring additional processing power. Up to 16GB of LPDDR3 memory on the Kaby Lake version and several high-volume SSD options also make the unit powerful and flexible enough to adapt to many purposes.

What really help the unit stand out from some other choices is the variety of I/O and connectivity options. Each MR-100 features a USB 2.0 (Type A at 1 amp) port, an HDMI Type A port, an RJ45 Ethernet port, Audio and DC-In jacks, as well as a POGO docking port for drop-in field and office applications. All I/O ports are hidden behind flexible seals for additional dirt and water protection. Front and rear cameras, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and a variety of included sensors complete the base package. Available I/O and connectivity options include an ISO compliant NFC module, a 4G LTE module with available carrier certification, and a high quality 1D/2D barcode scanner that makes shipping and receiving, logistics, inventory management, and jobsite management tasks a breeze. Several programmable buttons on the front of the tablet simplify common tasks, and an available digitizer pen allows for document signing, note taking, and other in-the-field tasks.

In terms of ruggedness and field usability, the MR-100 goes wherever your job takes you. A MIL-STD-810G certified IP65 waterproof rating, 4ft drop rating, shock resistance, and ESD shock protection up to 8KV keep your tablet safe in even the most strenuous environments. An available 800NIT brightness screen is easily read even in the most intense direct light, and available anti-polarization or anti-reflection coatings also ease use in outdoor or harsh light environments. Available optical bonding adds even more strength to your screen – it has been tested with a 500g steel ball drop.
