Purpose Built for Commercial Applications

Consumer grade devices, such as Samsung tablets, are often used in Dispatch and ELD applications due to their widespread availability and low initial cost. Such consumer-grade tablets are normally mounted in fleet vehicles using third-party mounts. In ELD applications, where the tablet needs to be removed in order to conduct vehicle inspections, this increases durability and reliability risk. When using a consumer tablet out of the vehicle, the mount really needs to be designed with a protection sleeve, in order to protect the tablet glass during an accidental drop. In addition, the mount should incorporate a quick-connect power connector -otherwise, the driver will need to manually plug it in every time, thereby increasing the likelihood of connector and charging issues. Purchasing a mount with these capabilities can literally double the cost of the tablet, bringing total costs into the same arena as a purpose-built device. DuraTran TabLock is the professional choice for tablets or MDT’s, providing a lower 5 year total cost of ownership.

DuraTran TabLock is a rugged android MDT, designed to replace consumer grade tablets in commercial ELD and Dispatch applications.  With integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, 4G and Bluetooth, DuraTran TabLock is suitable for a wide range of applications including taxi dispatch, towing dispatch, ambulance and para-transit dispatch. DuraTran is also ideally suited for ELD applications, with its snap-out cradle design, integrated 5,000 Mac battery, BLE 5.0 Low Energy Bluetooth support for ECM devices and optional CanBus support. DuraTran’s powerful Octa-core processor, on-board 4G LTE, WiFi & GPS modules with integrated antennas, GMS Certified (Google Mobile Services) Android 11 operating system and military grade durability make it the perfect choice for fleet applications.

Equipping your commercial vehicles with DuraTran also eliminates concerns about drivers turning off their consumer tablets while working, as DuraTran will automatically power up when the vehicle ignition is turned on. At the same time, it eliminates concerns with reduced battery life and wasted data consumption caused by drivers forgetting to power down their consumer grade tablet when going off shift, leaving the tablet running all night. DuraTran powers down xx minutes (adjustable) after ignition off. Snapping the tablet back into the vehicle cradle re-charges its lithium polymer battery and once the vehicle ignition is turned off, shuts down tablet charging automatically once full battery is achieved.

Is A Rugged Android MDT Worth The Expense?

The reality is that consumer grade tablets are simply not designed for operation in commercial vehicle applications, where extreme heat and bright sunlight conditions are the norm. Nor are they designed for outdoor use, where dust, vibration, moisture and shock conditions are common. However, when used in these environments for commercial applications, additional costs can be incurred for mounting, charging and device drop protection, as well as service costs for repair and replacement. Over the long term, purpose-built devices will pay for themselves in both longevity and reliability. Consider the benefits of DuraTran TabLock:

  • Greater durability, increased longevity due to more rugged design
  • Increased reliability, no concerns about battery charging or losing power
  • Automatically powers on and off according to vehicle activity
  • Improved GPS and cellular performance
  • Reduced mounting costs compared to a consumer grade tablet
  • No concern about bloatware or drivers using non-company apps
  • Less concern about tablet theft -does not look like a consumer device
  • More professional -better vehicle by vehicle consistency to your brand
  • Superior flexibility and functionality with extensive inputs & peripherals
  • Lower costs of ownership over time -will outlast multiple consumer devices
  • Lower monthly wireless data costs than consumer tablets
  • No need for long-term contracts such as required by wireless carriers
