Moreover, the Intel® Apollo Lake serves Gigabit Ethernet Network Appliance through six ports, which makes it an ideal solution for SOHO and SMB, resulting in an optimized network performance in the field of:

  • Firewall;
  • VPN;
  • Load Balancing;
  • Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN);
  • Software Defined Network (SDN);
  • Network Function Virtualization (NFW);
  • Unified Threat Management (UTM);
  • Wireless Network Access Controller (NAC);
  • Virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE).

And the best – you are not going to face difficulties in configuration!

Increasing strength – RTC-600

Experience the RTC-600, one of AAEON’s rugged tablet computers that convinces through its reliable performance at all times!

RTC-600 by AAEON – Maximum Performance @ Minimal Size

The RTC-600A will prove itself a worthy companion at your side at all times and through all kinds of circumstances, defying water, dust, sand, snow and mud during your intensive day at the job. Dropping it will not give you the terror shock-and-awe you normally have when dropping your consumer-grade tablet/phablet. Additionally, with the IP67 certification there’s no need to worry about the extremities of the environment!

You need visible proof? This time, AAEON is going one step further to demonstrate the reliability of RTC-600, see for yourself:


Data transfer and positioning is crucial for your day in the field. The RTC-600A is equipped with WiFi, BlueTooth, GPS/GLONASS and 3G/LTE to ensure accurate positioning and fast data response, whether in a car, bus, truck or even harvester. The docking station will even provide extra (back-up) connectivity through physical Ethernet.


Next to the NFC/Mifare RFID reader, the optionally integrated solid-state 1D/2D barcode reader will read a wide variation of barcodes for all your tracking & tracing needs, whether in delivering packages, monitoring machine maintenance or taking stock in your warehouse. It reads the most popular used barcodes from 1D EAN/UPC to 2D DataMatrix codes.

Furthermore, the 8MP auto-focus camera with flash will create the right picture for you in any environment, whether you are documenting damage to goods upon delivery or making scenery pictures for your field surveying goals. The hot-swappable battery will give you the flexibility to work some extra hours past the obligatory 8-hour work-day.


The RTC-600A is a very versatile unit offering the flexibility to scale your needs with different accessories.

Running out of battery power? No worries, the hot-swappable battery can be exchanged in seconds and fits nicely in the 4-battery charging station to recharge in just a couple of hours.

If you want to wear the RTC-600A on your body at all times, the carry bag with integrated hand strap (auto-adjust to all size hands) will just do the trick for you.

Furthermore, the docking station will give you the capability to charge the RTC-600A and, through the extra USB ports, add extra peripherals to it, such as a keyboard/pad, UHF RFID reader, forklift sensor, etc. The docking station also provides for physical Ethernet and a COM port for legacy devices.

Meanwhile, it provides a triple independent display, which will greatly enhance factory product management. Additionally, it offers support for 6 COM RS-232/422/485 ports, well above the current market average.

Designed to consolidate existing camera systems, AAEON’s BOXER-6839 series supports various camera interfaces, providing integration without having to connect through other transponders. The BOXER 6839 provides longevity support and a customizable mechanical design for CPU flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of both the client and the landscape of Industry 4.0. With a native capacity of 3 GigaLAN ports, as well as a 6 USB 3.0 sockets and 34-bit programmable digital I/O, it can also be adapted for a range of industrial manufacturing processes. The chassis design is an option for smart control systems, machine vision inspection, digital signage, surveillance and machine makers.

Mobile 3D box dimensioning is finally here!

written by: Pascal Borgstijn, Business Development Manager @ AAEON Europe

Imagine you no longer need to tape measure boxes anymore,

you just let the mobile computer tell you what the dimensions are in addition to the traditional handling it will do for you such as scanning the barcode and uploading the information in real-time.

The cost benefits of the new AAEON 7” RTC-700B with Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera are clear:

  • No more tape-measuring which costs a lot of time;
  • No more “guesswork” to counter the time restraint of tape measuring and thus losing revenue e.g. by shipping a box bigger than invoiced to the receiver;
  • Clarify early in the packing area if the packaged load will still fit in the designated truck eliminating unnecessary trips to the wrong loading dock;
  • No need for large and expensive dimensioning machines with limited flexibility, just a Bluetooth/Wi-Fi enabled scale at a fraction of the costs (if you need to weigh at all).

Can a Rugged Tablet survive an avalanche?

Write: Pascal Borgstijn, Business Development Manager Europe for Rugged Tablets


Last week we at AAEON Europe had our annual Channel Partner Conference. It was held in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in France, and it is a mesmerizing place. Next, to the productive meetings in the morning done by ourselves as well as some of our Ecosystem partners, there was a time in the afternoon and evening for fun activities, drinks, and great food.

Being responsible for the RTC Rugged Tablet product portfolio, I thought this would be an ideal location to put our latest addition, the 11.6″ RTC-1200SK, to a real test. The first day of activities we were quite high up (approx 1,400 meters) and it was blistering cold (at least -12°C). Everybody suited up for the occasion and were good sports about it.

Due to the cold, not a lot of people were able to take pictures with their smartphones as these just died…

To prove a point about the ruggedness of our tablets, I was brave enough to give the RTC-1200SK an active part in an activity called “Avalanche Rescue”.

Did the RTC-1200SK pass the test? See for yourself:
