Juniper Systems Announces Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet
The Mesa 2 battery provides users with a full 8 to 10 hours of runtime, and users can also purchase an optional expansion battery from Juniper Systems.Juniper Systems, a provider of rugged field data collection devices, announced the release of its latest handheld product, the Mesa 2 rugged tablet. The Mesa 2 boasts the largest display produced by the company to date, and the tablet is also Juniper Systems’ first handheld to run on the Windows 10 operating system. The Mesa 2 is designed to perform reliably in harsh environments and is the only IP68-rated rugged Windows tablet available, providing protection against water and dust. It also maintains a seal while its ports are in use and features an IllumiView display, providing improved visibility in any lighting conditions. Its chemically strengthened Dragontrail glass touch-screen provides enhanced durability, reducing haze from surface scratches and cracks that can be caused by accidental impact.
"Our customers value having a device that can be relied upon for many years and has the ingress protection and impact ratings they need to get their work done," Nathan Holman, director of sales and marketing with Juniper Systems, told eWEEK. "That requires making the device a little larger and heavier than consumer devices. We wanted a product that still felt lightweight and comfortable to hold all day, so ergonomics was key."
