Quality computers are a necessity for rugged environments. Conditions like snow and ice, extreme humidity or dryness, temperature fluctuations, and intense shaking as well as falling debris make for a harsh setting that would mean the end of most computers. Intensive testing like the C1D2 process ensure that the computers that pass the tests will be able to perform in the most intense working environments on earth.
Considered to be some of the most rigorous testing available, C1D2 testing exposes the machinery undergoing this prestigious certification to some of the toughest environments they could possibly encounter. In a C1D2 location, volatile flammable liquids or gases are used, but are usually restricted to being inside closed containers or closed systems. Occasionally a C1D2 site is beside a C1D1 location, and the flammable concentrations of gases or vapors might be present in some cases unless prevented with sufficient positive-pressure exposure to air with effective safeguards against ventilation failure.
In addition to the average working conditions found in these kinds of rugged environments, the potential for something to go wrong is always there. This is why ensuring safety and quality in these locations is the key to a successful working experience when working in dangerous fields. This certification does not just make sure that a device will survive harsh conditions and continue to operation normally (even though it does do that too); the C1D2 certification ensures that the heavy duty devices that pass this difficult standard of testing will not contribute to harming workers on the job site. Sometimes below standard systems, such as a malfunctioning tablet, are subject to catching fire, exploding, or something else under certain kinds of rugged conditions. C1D2 is an important part of the safety process to make sure that situations like these are avoided completely.
Acura Embedded Systems Inc. is currently undergoing C1D2 testing for one of its latest models, the AcuPNL 15HBCD. This amazing computer is a 15 inch rugged TFT touch screen Panel PC featured in an ultra slim (4.9cms) stainless chassis enclosure. It is FCC and CE certified and is currently undergoing the C1D2 certification.
