How Rugged are your computers?
Depends upon the model. Our MaxPac, MaxRax, MiniRax, and MaxCube family is what we call semi-rugged. They are design to handle temperatures from freezing to 122F (50C), operating in dust and blowing sand, but not in the rain, but rather in tent shelters. Inside their transit case they are practically industructable meeting all relavent MIL STD 810 requirements for transportation, including extreme drops, vibration, drops into ocean, salt fog, and so on. This is exactly what most our military customers want hitting the sweet spot of performance, rugged and value priced.
Our MesaMax and MesaPac product family is design for the most extreme conditions such as -32C to 60C (140F) and operate out doors in the rain, desert sun, and readable in bright daylight. These are custom products made for specific missions and may have ITAR restrictions. These products are more of a fixed configuration and high priced. Nevertheless if there is a call for such specifications we are able to provide. Please call for more information.
Who can buy these?
Anyone not in a restricted country by the state department, except for the MesaMax, which is under strict ITAR control and requires a special license to ship to foreign customers.
Are these considered off the shelf products?
Yes, but all are built to order and require from 4 to 12 weeks depending on quantity and material lead times.
Where do we buy MaxVision products?
Do you do custom portable designs?
All the time. Depending on volume we can either modify a standard offering or if you are OEM or program focused we can design exactly what you need. In most cases we do this with a simple PO and no NRE.
Does MaxVision provide rugged laptops or notebook computers?
No our focus is on higher performance platforms which support additional PCIe cards, larger disk storage, larger displays, and much higher compute power. We are planning some models which operate off battery and AC power. If an off the shelf rugged notebook will do the job, then use that. If not, then please consider our products or services to help you solve your problem.
