Juniper Systems introduces the Mesa Rugged Notepad, a rugged handheld computer designed for hazardous locations, complete with Class I, Division 2 non-incendive certification. Approved under standard UL 1604 CSA 213 in the U.S. and Canada, the Mesa enables users to safely collect data where potentially explosive gases, liquids, or vapors may be present.
Features of the Mesa include a large active viewing display and universal Windows Mobile operating system, plus the optional integration of the high performance Mesa 1D/2D barcode scanner. Class I, Division 2 certification is available for all three models (Standard, Geo, and Geo 3G).
The standard model features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology, while the Geo model adds 2–5 meter accuracy GPS and a 3.2MP camera enhanced with Juniper Geotagging (the ability to embed and emboss photos with date, time, and GPS position). The Geo 3G model includes all of the features of the Mesa Geo, plus a 3.5G GSM data modem for increased connectivity capabilities.
The Mesa is built to IP67 standards, making it fully waterproof and dustproof, and designed to MIL-STD-810G standards for water, humidity, sand and dust, vibration, altitude, shock, and temperature. Its rugged magnesium and plastic chassis protects the Mesa from up to four-foot drops onto concrete.
