Juniper Systems announced that the all-new Mesa Pro Rugged Tablet is now available featuring an IP68 rating for ingress protection.

The Mesa Pro is the first IP68-rated rugged tablet that uses an active cooling fan to cool the system’s processor.

‘This is a big moment for Juniper Systems’, said Mr. Darren Hellstern, Mesa Pro product manager at Juniper Systems. ‘We have a long history of offering IP68 on our rugged products. A lot of time and hard work has gone into securing the rating for Mesa Pro. Achieving this rating of ingress protection against water and dust in a tablet with a fan is an engineering challenge. Our team was up for that challenge and delivered for our customers’.

Ingress protection (IP) ratings are used across the electronics industry to rate the protection a device has against solids and liquids compromising internal systems. A rating of 6 is the highest protection from solids, such as dust, sand, rocks, etc. An 8 is a rating against liquid ingress, this includes drips, sprays, and submersion. Mesa Pro is rated to and capable of submersion at one metre for 45 minutes.

Featuring 11th Generation Intel Core processors, a Microsoft Windows 11 operating system, device customisation options, a large sunlight-readable display, a Juniper Rugged design, and now an IP68 rating, the Mesa Pro is the most robust rugged tablet on the market.

‘Mesa Pro is a powerful laptop replacement for those who are looking for a more robust computer to fit their work needs’, Mr. Hellstern said. ‘Whether it is in the office or in the field, the Mesa Pro offers everything mobile workers need in a rugged computer’.

Mesa Pro joins the Mesa 3 family of 7-inch tablets as IP68-certified devices, and helps Juniper Systems achieve its mission of providing powerful rugged computing and data collection solutions to mobile field workers everywhere.

Mesa Pro is ideal for industries like construction, utility mapping, manufacturing, field service, geomatics, mining, and for mounted and in-cab solutions. Mesa Pro is ready for any environment.
