Teguar Rugged Computers are designed for reliable operation in extreme environments. These units come with a range of certifications including Class 1 Division 2, ATEX Zone2, IECEx, MIL-STD-810F/G, IEC60068-2-27, NEMA 4X, and IP65/IP66/IP67/IP69K. They are built to withstand wide temperature ranges, some of which range all the way from -25ºC to 55ºC (-13ºF to 131ºF). They are completely waterproof and dustproof and can withstand vibration and shock from machines and vehicles.
Teguar’s rugged computer solutions are intended for 24-hour reliability in extreme working conditions. To ensure maximum performance, each unit features a fanless cooling system and durable enclosure.
Teguar carries rugged computers specifically designed for use outdoors, with sunlight readable displays and wide operating temperatures. See Teguar's Outdoor Computers >
Teguar's Hazardous Location Computers carry C1D2 ratings, for environments where flammable or explosive vapors or gasses are present. See Teguar's C1D2 Computers >
The TSX-5010-15 is C1D2, ATEx Zone 2, and IECEx certified, as well as IP66 / NEMA 4X compliant. This explosion proof computer runs on an Intel Skylake processor and has a 15” resistive touchscreen. The TSX-5010-15 is built for applications in hazardous areas such as mining, chemical manufacturing, and refineries.
TSX-2920-15 is a Class 1 Division 2 (C1D2) explosion proof computer. This rugged computer runs on an Intel Celeron N2930 Processor. The TSX-2920-15 is designed for hazardous applications such as mining, refineries, and chemical processing. It can run your ERP software, SCADA systems, or act as a data hub for your hazardous area application.
Teguar Rugged Computers are installed in locations from the ski slopes in Colorado, to an outdoor sports complex in Florida. These computers need to be able to operate in all weather types, so they have wider operating temperature ranges than other computers. The widest range of any Teguar computer is from -25°C to 60°C (-13°F to 140°F).

3 Environments Where Computers Must Endure Temperature Fluctuations
Do Fanless Computers Overheat?
Teguar carries two lines of C1D2 certified computers, the TSX-2920 and TSX-5010. Teguar's Hazardous Location Computers are Class 1 Division 2, ATEx Zone 2, and IECEx certified, as well as IP66 / NEMA 4X compliant. They are built for environments where flammable or explosive vapors or gasses are present, such as in the oil and gas industry, at a nuclear factory, or on a chemical manufacturing line. Being C1D2 certified means these computers will not emit any sparks or electrical surges that could cause a fire or explosion in these hazardous environments.

Most of Teguar's Rugged Computers have the option for high-bright LCD screens with optical bonding. Standard LCDs max out at about 400 nits brightness, which is readable in most indoor conditions, but is too dim to read under sunlight. 1000 nits brightness is easily readable in sunlight or under bright overhead lights. Optical bonding also helps reduce glare from bright lights.

Four Things to Consider when Choosing the Best Outdoor Computer
Projected Capacitive (PCap) touchscreens are smooth and reactive, but they don't work with gloves. In many rugged environments, users wear thick gloves, so a 5-wire resistive touchscreen is needed. This type of touchscreen reacts to pressure, so any object can be used to register touch. This can be helpful in applications that involve chemicals or oils, because a pen or tool can be used on the screen, rather than a dirty glove or hand. If you're placing the computer in an outdoor public kiosk, PCap might be a better option.
