Public Safety Law Enforcement Fire EMS Government Federal/Military State & Local Utilities Gas Electric Telco “WorkBook”
Consider the Real Value of Workbook Ownership: Owning a ruggedized notebook computer dramatically reduces the probability that your system will be injured by physical trauma. Quality of Life Howard’s unique open architecture design offers easy upgrading, device integration, and field servicing. The WorkBook is fully upgradeable with the ability to grow as technology and needs change. Ruggedization Defined Certified to MIL-STD 810E and IP54, Howard’s WorkBook is equipped to withstand the harshest environmental conditions and take abuse in stride. Outliving the Competition With an average life cycle of five years, WorkBook’s life is significantly longer than the one to two year life span of a typical computing system deployed for field use. After all factors are considered, WorkBook is clearly the most reliable, cost effective choice.

Fast Access WorkBook’s “Smart Bay” can operate any of the following interchangeable components: All of these components can be either field swapped, or self-serviced on demand – a crucial time saver. The WorkBook also features a removable hard disk drive (HDD). A unique “coin-screw release” keeps the drives and battery securely in place while they are in use but allows for their easy removal without requiring any tools, a process Howard refers to as FAST ACCESS.
CPU/Memory Upgrades Device Integration The WorkBook has a surface mounted motherboard with a PCI slot allowing for the connection of several peripherals onto the motherboard. These modules can include: Fax Modem CDPD Modem LAN Card Wireless Modem 2 Internal COM Ports GPS Receiver Other device integrations for special applications can be addressed through Howard’s Open Architecture Design.

Alpha-Star Sunlight Readable LCD Howard’s Alpha-Star Technology includes a series of electronic and passive enhancements contributing to what we believe is a superior sunlight readable LCD. Through our unique process, Howard was able to significantly increase the contrast and reduce reflective glare..
Docking Howard Computers offers dockunders for both vehicle and office environments. The office dockunder features an extra PCI slot for increased expansion capabilities. Support arm that secures the LCD in place reduces the effects of movement & vibration. Both office and vehicle dockunders come with a key lock mechanism for additional security. The vehicle dockunder was designed with a convenient downward port design for user-friendly connectivity/mounting.
“WorkBook” MIL-STD 810E MIL-STD 461D Certifications Environmental designed and tested to meet the following Military Standards: MIL-STD 810E 501-I, II Altitude MIL-STD 810E 501-I, II High Temperature MIL-STD 810E 502-I, II Low Temperature MIL-STD 810E 506-I Rain MIL-STD 810E 507-III Humidity MIL-STD 810E 509 Salt, Fog MIL-STD 810E 514-VIII Vibration MIL-STD 810E 516-I Shock MIL-STD 461 D Electromagnetic Emission IP54 Certification Dust & Water
Fault Tolerant Isolation Each chamber in the body of the ROCKY is sealed to give extra protection to the motherboard & electrical components from water, dust & other foreign matter. Padded Corners Free Float LCD Design Free Float Design allows the LCD to move slightly within Its casing to minimize damage In the event of a major jolt. Flexible Connectivity Flexible connectors between the HDD & the system board protect against the breakage of the connectors. Dust & Water Resistant Environmental Seals - Fitted environmental seals or “port covers” to protect the units swappable components & rear Connection terminals. Magnesium Casing Rugged Feature Design HDD Shock Mount HDD insulated by shock absorbent membranes.
