Computer Dynamics, A Division of Cimtec Automation, releases theDisplayPAC-RT9 Tablet


Setting a new standard for ruggedness and portability, Computer Dynamics ( announces a new Rugged Tablet Computer, the DisplayPAC-RT9.  Weighing in at only 2.25 lbs., the DisplayPAC-RT9 provides excellent performance due to its Intel® Atom™ N2600 Dual Core processor.<
Designed with portability, performance, and ruggedness in mind, the DisplayPAC-RT9 offers impressive specifications:

  • 9.7” 1024x768 IPS panel with LED backlights
  • Low power Intel® Atom™ N2600 1.6GHz Processor with Intel® NM10 Chipset
  • 2GB DDR3-800 memory
  • Projected Capacitive touchscreen supporting multi-touch

  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Sealed to IP54 (dust proof)

“The new DisplayPAC-RT9 gives our customers a high-performance rugged system that they expect from Computer Dynamics, but offers complete portability to move about without cables getting in the way,” states Tom Behnke, CDI Product Manager.  “The DisplayPAC-RT9 offers superior portability, performance, and ruggedness.”

Portability: The DisplayPAC-RT9 provides users with a way to access applications using an Intel® chipset.  The DisplayPAC-RT9 runs Windows 7 and can run applications built for Windows operating systems.  Your users will no longer have to be tied to a fixed location to access information.  The overall size of the system comes in at 10.5” x 8.3” x 0.9” at a comfortable 2.25lbs.  A detachable hand strap is also provided to allow users a better grip on the system as they are moving around.  Wireless 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth communications are supported truly eliminating the need for wires.  Optional GPS and 3G modules can be ordered for even more connectivity and portability.  Operator interfaces can be operated with the tap of the screen – again, with no specialized programming required.  Under 100% CPU utilization, the 5300 mAH battery will last over 4 hours before needing a recharge on the provided recharge base.

Performance: Unlike other tablets, the DisplayPAC-RT9 uses an Intel® Atom™ based processor that is designed to run Windows Operating Systems.  The Atom™ processor is used in many Notebooks and offers excellent performance for a low powered processor.  The DisplayPAC-RT9 comes with 2GB of DDR3-800 memory.   The Atom™ N2600 Dual Core Processor runs at a speed of 1.6GHz and uses the Intel® NM10 chipset for graphics duties providing a platform that can keep up with the tasks thrown at it.  The system storage is 32GB of M-SATA SSD for fast reads and writes and plenty of application storage.

Ruggedness: In addition to portability and performance, the DisplayPAC-RT9 is built to withstand the rigors of an industrial environment.  All four corners of the DisplayPAC-RT9 are rubberized to provide a degree of protection against drops.  The system survives a four foot drop to concrete (all faces) and is sealed to IP54 against dust and water intrusion.  The tablet is designed to be used in industrial environments and can withstand the drops and shocks that happen every day on a factory floor.
