Taipei, Taiwan, Jan. 2024 – Advantech, a leading player in ruggedized computers for harsh environments, has just unveiled TREK-20, a compact, powerful, and ruggedized computing platform based on Android and Qualcomm chipset. With the rugged design of the 5M3, MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration certifications, IP 67, a wide temperature range, and an easy-to-configure Android platform, TREK-20 provides a compact and flexible computing solution for applications in harsh environments such as fleet management, communication, and automation.

TREK-20 Android Rugged Computing Platform

TREK’s first Qualcomm Android-based computing box

TREK-20 is the first TREK product designed on the Android 10 platform. Weighing only 1.6 kg and occupying half as much space as other computing boxes, TREK-20 can process multiple data analyses tasks. This ideal weight and size provides installation flexibility for various scenarios, including emergency vehicles and automation facilities. On the other hand, the Android platform enables fast and easy application development and provides an easy-to-use user interface, which helps to accelerate the on-site training process. TREK-20 also features a single cable connection between the display and the computing box. This provides even higher installation flexibility.

Ruggedized design for harsh environments

TREK-20, like the other TREK siblings, is purpose-built for harsh environments, consistently featuring the reliable rugged design. Built with IP54, a wide working temperature (-20 to 60°C), a fanless design, 5M3 shock & vibration standards, and an E-Mark certification, TREK-20 endures in not only manufacture environments, but also harsh environments like in-vehicle scenarios. For the latter, it also features vehicle power management to control ignition and prevent damage from shutdowns.

Flexibility for creating specific value in required scenarios

The Android platform allows convenient and resourceful application development for TREK-20; on the other hand, TREK-20 has echoed the needs of customization and reserved functional hotkeys design for customers to apply specific features for faster and more convenient on-site usage.
