Gamber-Johnson, a manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting, now has a Mag docking station for the Panasonic Toughbook 31 computer. The new Mag 31 Dock, constructed out of a magnesium shell to enhance its overall look and performance, includes a front-facing docking mechanism designed for easy one-handed docking and undocking of the computer. The station, which has a key lock for added security, has passed vibration testing standard MIL-STD-810G and has undergone cycle testing on the latch and docking mechanisms.
The dock, which has a molded design that reduces the number of parts, is USB 2.0 compliant, offers a variety of antenna pass-through options and contains two Ethernet and five USB forward-facing ports for low mounting capability, minimal cable strain and minimal swivel resistance. The Mag 31 Dock is backward-compatible with the Panasonic Toughbook 30 computer.
