Ruggedized and Water-Resistant to Stand Up to Abuse

The FZ handhelds are built to be rugged for use in a wide range of hostile environments. Both are MIL-STD-810G compliant to resist shock, vibration, rain, dust, sand, altitude, freezing and thawing, humidity, and high or low temperatures. They are also built with sealed designs to comply with IP65 and IP67 standards. They are resistant to 6-foot drops on concrete and are tested to withstand some 2,000 consecutive tumbles from 3.3 feet. The devices include sealing covers on all external ports and a raised bezel to protect the display from impacts.
