Handheld Group is one of the world’s leading suppliers of rugged mobile handhelds, tablets and notebook computers. Together with a network of reselling partners and software solution providers, Handheld offers complete rugged mobile solutions for a variety of industries including public transportation, railway, maintenance and logistics. Handheld has been the rugged computer supplier of NS Nederlandse Spoorwegen (the Netherlands Railways), SJ (Swedish rail) among some. The company is headquartered in Lidköping, Sweden, with local offices worldwide.
Since rail workers often operate in unpredictable surroundings, the equipment needs to be rugged enough to withstand a great variety of work conditions. Within these environments, durable features such as shock resistance as well as an ability to withstand fluctuating temperatures and vibration are key requirements, not to mention a long battery life. All of Handheld’s products are fully rugged and IP65 or IP67-rated, which means they are tested to ensure that the equipment can handle exposure to sand and dust, extreme temperatures, rain, humidity, leakage, shock and vibration. Taken together, this means a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for your deployment. Learn more about what rugged really means here
