Drop Test



Drop Test
The Drop test was performed in accordance with MIL-STD-810F, Method 516.5, Procedure IV (Transit Drop Test). The Toughbook 28 was sequentially dropped in non-operating mode, onto each face, edge and corner for a total of 26 drops from a height of 36 inches. The drop surface was defined as two-inch-thick plywood over a steel plate over concrete. The Toughbook 28s were visually inspected after each drop and a functional check (boot-up into Windows) was performed after each drop.

The Toughbooks boot Windows® following each drop.

Picture This
You're rushing to catch a plane. With your notebook in hand, you accidentally trip. Your notebook hits the floor.....hard. Devoid of several ruggedized features, the prognosis for your notebook could be fatal. What good is it if you make the flight and your meeting, but your primary business tool doesn't?

It's unavoidable. Notebooks bounce around in cars, on trains, in planes, and get knocked when they're being carried.

Shock-mounted HDDs
All Toughbook hard disk drives are mounted in shock-absorbing polymer compounds insulating the HDD from vibration and shock, while protecting your mission-critical data.

Vibration-resistant LCDs
To prevent costly damage to the LCD display, internal dampeners prevent damage by absorbing shock and sudden impact.

Flexible Internal Connectors
Should the notebook be dropped or bumped, flexible connectors between the hard disk drive and system board protect against the transfer of shock between these components.
