Captec Introduces Brand New Rugged Tablet for Mobile Workforces

Aaron Cole

We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new fully rugged tablet, built specifically for mobile workforces.

The light weight, 8-inch VT 681 provides smaller fleets with an affordable Windows-based tablet. It has been developed to disrupt the market currently dominated by more expensive rugged hardware.

Ruggedisation features include IP-67 protection and drop-testing to 1.2 metres, enabling the tablet to comfortably withstand the stresses of challenging environments including rough treatment, dust and water ingress and shocks.

With built-in GPS and an optional barcode scanner, the VT-681 supports the application needs of today’s mobile workforce across sectors including construction, field services, utility fleets and emergency services.

The addition of an integrated hand strap delivers maximum comfort on-the-go, while the active stylus pen increases the functionality available to field service professionals, even in wet conditions.


For mobile workforces requiring use in and out of vehicles, we have also developed the IVM-681 vehicle dock, designed to accommodate the VT-681 tablet.

The new dock is robust, compact and quick and easy to use. It features USB and power pass through, and has been constructed to offer hassle-free, one-handed cost-effective docking.

To meet the critical safety requirements of in-vehicle applications, the dock has been tested for its ability to endure shock and vibration – enabling tablets to stay securely mounted, even in the event of a collision.

Gerard Marlow, our Sales Director, said:

“We are excited to be able to introduce this new rugged tablet into our range. Our aim is to provide mobile workforces with flexible, powerful and cost-effective mobile computing solutions that make their jobs easier and provide peace of mind that they’re equipped to withstand all the rigours associated with field work.”

As well as developing the new tablet and dock, we offer a complete installation service. By fully managing everything from vehicle audits and custom cable looms to installation and through-life support, Captec optimise in-vehicle applications for reliability, safety and longevity.
