Interlink Electronics, Inc., announced that the upgraded Panasonic Toughbook 31 rugged laptop now integrates Interlink’s VersaPad touchpad technology.
Interlink Electronics is a global leader in the design of patented Force-Sensing Resistor (FSR) technology. For over 25 years, Interlink Electronics’ solutions have focused on handheld user input, menu navigation, cursor control, and other intuitive interface technologies for the world's top electronics manufacturers. Interlink Electronics has a 15-year track record of supplying touchpads for use in uncompromising, harsh environments.
Interlink’s VersaPad is a resistive touchpad that uses a unique pressure sensing technology, enabling exceptionally light touch and smooth tracking. Unaffected by moisture and other contaminants, the VersaPad is operable with any glove or passive stylus, and may be environmentally sealed to NEMA 4X / IP65 standards. This compelling combination makes the VersaPad ideally suited to the harsh environments in which the Panasonic Toughbook excels. The VersaPad is supported by a mouse driver that provides users with an advanced feature set and multi-language support.
“The Toughbook brand has a global reputation for quality, performance and reliability and we are proud Panasonic feels our VersaPad meets their high standards,” says Trevor Bray, vice president of sales, Interlink Electronics. “We have engineered our FSR technology to meet the most demanding requirements and believe Toughbook users will benefit from this work. We hope this is the first step in a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Panasonic.”
The MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certified Toughbook 31 is the ideal solution for mobile professionals in mission-critical environments, including first responders, military personnel, and field workers in industries such as telecommunications, utilities and energy.
