Amherst, NH - Glacier Computer adds an XP-based rugged tablet, the Ridgeline, to its forklift and mobile line of industrial harsh environment computers.

The Ridgeline Tablet is a 10.4" rugged tablet with integrated touch screen interface. The unit was designed and tested to withstand repeated 3' drops to concrete as well as IP 65 sealing mandates. Each unit comes with integrated 802.11 a/b/g radio, Bluetooth, numerous I/O, and many hard drive options. Users can input data via touch or pen. Special software allows for signature capture and character recognition.

"The Ridgeline was designed for rugged portable applications commonly experienced in industries such as freight, construction, utility, and manufacturing," states Dan Poisson, Glacier Director of Engineering. "We produced a unit that would run 24/7 at a price point favorable to large and small deployments," says Poisson.

Glacier Computer, founded in 2000, designs, manufactures, and supports an array of rugged PC-based computers for harsh environments. Glacier's Everest and Ridgeline models are designed to work in all environments and are currently installed in a vast array of applications. All units are full screen Windows based computers with integrated 802.11 radios for distributed computing applications.
