New rugged Mesa 3 tablets now shipping

By on 27 January, 2020

Juniper Systems has released the Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet. Built on the successful Mesa 2, the Mesa 3 is said to offer performance increases across the board. The Mesa 3 is now available and shipping worldwide.

“The Mesa 2 was a new form factor for us, as well as our first full Windows 10 device,” said Jeff Delatore, Mesa product manager. “The Mesa 3 continues with that same form factor. It’s what is inside the Mesa 3 that counts.”

The Mesa 3 sees the addition of a new quad-core Intel Pentium processor that offers the speed and flexibility specialists running processor-intensive applications need in the field. The Mesa 3 also sees an increase in system memory (RAM), going from 4 GB in the Mesa 2 to 8 GB in the Mesa 3. This allows for more demanding tasks, larger datasheets and more programs running concurrently. Running Windows 10, organisations and professionals have access to the data, mapping and office software libraries.

Like the Mesa 2, the Mesa 3 comes with an IP68 rating and meets MIL-STD-810G test procedures. These tests mean the Mesa 3 is waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof – ensuring protected data in even the harshest environments. It also provides an increase in onboard storage, allowing for more recordkeeping, programs, and data. All this, plus the ability to have hot-swappable batteries, will keep users moving all day.

“It wouldn’t be a Juniper product without our in-house durability testing,” Mr Delatore said. “We test our devices to meet the demanding circumstances that our customers work in every day. This isn’t a consumer tablet in a hard case, the case is the device and it was built from the ground up to be that way.”
