PRESS RELEASE: The IP67-certified T20 Tablet is waterproof for 30 minutes at a depth of one metre. It withstands moisture, sand and dust and fulfils the tough requirements for the MIL SPEC 810G military standard. It is drop-resistant up to a height of 1.8m and vibration-proof.

Peter Stephens, CEO of Bullitt Group, the global mobile licensee for Caterpillar, explained: “With the Caterpillar T20 Tablet, we are accommodating our customers' requests for a robust tablet that they can use in every work situation and in all types of weather. Our customers work in construction, production, logistics and transportation, where there is a clear demand for a durable tablet.”

The new rugged T20 tablet is suitable in areas in which there are occasionally extreme conditions and where a traditional tablet would fail, including large fluctuations in temperature and air pressure; as well as external stress through sand, dust, contaminated liquids and salt spray. This includes, among other things, the aviation industry, tunnel construction, mining, energy production and shipping.
