TouchStar TS3000

Although designed to be used as a mounted in-vehicle device, the TouchStar TS3000 (ATEX certified) uses its innovative quick-release cradle to allow your mobile workforce to quickly detach it and use it as a rugged mobile tablet. Designed and manufactured in the UK by us we’ve poured our three decades of experience, industry knowledge and highly regarded track record into this device to provide a low cost ownership, highly reliable mobile solution suitable for use in multiple industry and logistics applications.

The TS3000 has been rigorously tested in extreme temperatures to provide a rugged tablet suitable for consistent long term daily use. It has an impact resistant casing which is flame retardant and the device itself is completely protected against infiltration of oil, water and dust with an IP65 rating. The screen is impact resistant (the device itself is drop tested onto concrete from 1.5m), works with gloves and has signature capture allowing input via touch and stylus.

To top off this rugged tablet’s features it comes with a rear camera, 2D imager, Bluetooth and a host of connectivity options including USB, SD card slots and headset input as well as GPS connector for external antenna. We offer a host of additional accessories including rugged in-vehicle cradles, chargers and cable assemblies.

This is an excellent, high-end rugged tablet that’s ATEX certified available with comprehensive support options and extended warranties. If you need help making a decision as to which rugged mobile solution you need or are bulk purchasing our experts are on hand to provide free advice.
