Whether you’re working on an oil rig, are a first responder, work in manufacturing or are a member of the military and out in the field - your technology can be exposed to elements and conditions like extreme temperatures, constant vibrations or high levels of dust and humidity – environments that would push the limitations of a traditional office laptop.
That’s why the Dell Latitude Rugged PC portfolio is designed and tested to withstand some of the harshest and most demanding environments. Dell ups the ante with the new Dell Latitude 5430 Rugged – a lightweight, powerful, 5G-capable, 14-inch semi-rugged laptop – and the Dell Latitude 7330 – the industry’s smallest, 5G-capable 13-inch fully-rugged laptop.
The redesigned Rugged laptops provide:
- Enhanced field productivity with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, with vPro optional,
- Mission-critical connectivity with Intel® Wi-Fi 6E and optional 5G-capability,
- Improved daylight-readable and glove-touch capable screens of up to 1400 nits of brightness for optimal field usability,
- Improved battery run-time to almost 25 hours with dual hot swappable batteries and Express Charge Boost for up to a 35% charge in 20 minutes for 24x7 field operations.
First responders and public safety personnel can either use the 5G-network connectivity option or take advantage of FirstNet Ready™, a service that provides priority access to dedicated, fast, reliable and high-capacity broadband networks to coordinate field responses quickly during emergencies.
Ruggedness, reliability and performance are key when you’re out in the field, but it can’t come at the expense of security. Both the new Dell Latitude 5430 Rugged and the Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme come with TPM 2.0 ControlVault™ advanced authentication to secure devices. Integrated cryptographic keys, contacted and contactless smartcard reader and touch fingerprint reader options provide additional device security.
If you have a job that requires excellent field durability combined with optimal performance, then the Latitude 5430 Rugged is for you. Starting at only 4.35lbs (1.97kg) it packs quite a punch, coming with an optional professional discrete graphics card. It’s drop-tested from up to 3-feet and Ingress Protection (IP)-5313 rated for a high-degree of protection against dust, dirt and water ingress.
Taking it up a notch with enhanced durability, the Latitude 7330 Rugged Extreme features an optional 1400-nit direct-sunlight viewable and gloved multi-touch capable screen, is drop tested from up to 6-feet, and has an IP-6516 rating for maximum protection against dust, dirt and water ingress.
All of this comes with Dell’s industry-leading enterprise services and support, including Next-Business-Day on- site support option. Both devices are the first from Dell to ship with the new Windows 11 preinstalled, providing the smoothest user experience possible from the start – because experience should be the same no matter what condition. To further enhance performance of the system, new Rugged laptops also come with Dell Optimizer, a software application that leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize performance based on usage.
