Xplore Technologies has secured an additional US$ 2.3 million in orders from a leading natural gas provider.
The additional orders of iX104 ultra-rugged tablets bring the total amount purchased by the natural gas provider to approximately US$ 4.3 million.
“The additional orders of our iX104C5-DMSR tablets underscores that our ultra-rugged tablets are the ideal mobile computing solution for industries that require devices strong enough to keep up with their environmental conditions and performance needs. We uniquely meet the growing requirements of the electric, gas and water industries, which contributes to Xplore’s growing market share,” commented Mark Holleran, President of Xplore Technologies.
The ultra-rugged tablets are being used by field service technicians and site supervisors for pipeline measurement at construction sites and during pipeline inspections. Xplore’s devices were selected for their ultra-rugged construction, best sunlight readability in the market and high-accuracy global positioning system, all of which are common requirements needed in the electrical, gas and water markets.
The iX104 ultra-rugged product line is the most durable, powerful and longest-lasting industrial tablet PC in its class. For natural gas operators, its ATEX certification and ability to operate in hazardous areas - including Class 1, Division 2 explosive zones - without causing sparks make it the ideal choice. It is MIL-STD-810G certified and IP67 rated, boasts a seven-foot drop rating and is dust proof and fully submersible.
