Tripod Data Systems (TDS) introduced an improved line of Ranger(TM) rugged handheld computers. The new Rangers are available with up to 512 MB of nonvolatile Flash(R) memory, work in extremely cold temperatures down to -13º F (-25 C) and feature a color screen. With up to 512 MB of internal Flash storage available, the new Ranger allows users to store more points and handle larger, more complex jobs. Files are saved to nonvolatile Flash memory, so users don’t have to worry about losing their data. TDS has also improved the Ranger’s reliability using metric analysis in manufacturing and Pareto-driven issue resolution to prioritize problem areas and process improvements. As before, the Ranger is extremely rugged, with a lightweight carbon fiber and polyurethane exterior to withstand tough field conditions. It exceeds the MIL-STD-810E standard for drop test, shock and vibration and IP67 for protection against dust
and water. The new Ranger is available with 32, 128 or 512 MB of nonvolatile Flash memory. Every Ranger features a 206 MHz Intel(R) StrongARM(R) processor, a 320 x 240 backlit reflective color display, 64 MB of SDRAM and a 57-key tactile-action keyboard with separate navigation and alphanumeric keypads plus touch-screen input. The Ranger uses Microsoft(R) Windows(R) CE .NET.
