Airline ground operations staff working outside rely on Toughbook cutting edge display technology for brilliant screen visibility in direct sunlight or rain and background illumination for working at night.

Even our smallest Toughpads with a display size of 7'' and 10'' are up to IP65 compliant for dust and moisture resistance and have wide temperature thresholds, so can be used in high or low temperatures and in conjunction with a vehicle mount.

Thanks to in-vehicle power solutions data can be accessed even while driving in de-icing vehicles, passenger transportation buses or in cargo tractors. Toughpad tablets can also withstand falls from up to 180cm and are therefore perfectly suited to coordinate all airport ramp services.
