Panasonic has announced
that its Toughbook models 19, 30 and U1 are the first computers to be Mil-Std-810G-certified from an independent third-party test lab.
Each laptop passed 20 of the Mil-Std 810G tests for mobile computers. The standard was issued in October 2008 and is more rigorous than the Mil-Std 810F that it replaces, Panasonic said.
The Toughbooks also passed tests for IP65 ingress protection, a standard developed by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization and vehicle vibration tests.
The lab’s tests included high and low temperature, humidity, rain, sand and dust (using talcum powder), salt, fog, shock, and vibration.
