Convertible notebook for industrial and military users with Intel Core Duo technology

With the Victum-Note V-Series, Acturion Datasys presents a groundbreaking new PC which combines the best of two worlds – a notebook PC and a tablet PC in one unit

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) Acturion Datasys, one of the leading system vendors in the field of industrial and military mobile computing, releases two new outdoor convertible PCs; the Victum-Note V10 and the Victum-Note V12. The V-Series can be used either as standard notebook PC with keyboard or as a Tablet PC with touch screen. The Victum-Note V-Series can be converted from Notebook PC to Tablet PC in seconds just by turning the display through 180° and then pressing it down.
Two base models are available
Even from the start of the series production two base models have been available. They can be distinguished from each other by the size of their TFT display. The Victum-Note V10 has a 10.4” XGA TFT display and the Victum-Note V12 boasts a 12.1“ WXGA TFT display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. Both models come with touch screen as standard, a sunlight readable display is optionally available and the V10 can be ordered with a digitizer pen and Windows XP Tablet Edition as an option. Normally the V-Series comes with Windows XP Pro or Windows Vista pre-installed. Linux is under test and will be available as an option soon.
Do NOT handle with care!
The Victum-Note V-Series is built to survive even in harsh environmental conditions. The housing is made of a special light metal alloy which gives the V-Series its extreme ruggedness. Thanks to the use of magnesium for the housing the weight of the whole unit stays at a low level of only 6.2lbs (2.2kgs). With its completely sealed housing the V-Series fulfils IP54 protection class and MIL-STD810F. In order to get the military standard certification the units must undergo harsh tests involving low temperature testing –4°F (-20°C), high temperature testing 131° F (+55°C) and a drop from a height of 3 feet onto a concrete slab. To be certified, the unit must continue to operate without any malfunction after testing.
Inside the cabinet of the Victum-Note V-Series there is no fan and for this reason the V-Series has a well thought-out heat management system which consists of heat pipes that transfer the processing heat from the CPU to the metal housing - thus the metal housing acts as heat sink.

Perfect package for outdoor users
A state-of-the-art mobile PC must fulfil numerous criteria like low weight, compact dimensions, good handling, long battery runtime, high CPU power and high connectivity. The Victum-Note V-Series matches all these requirements perfectly.
Low weight, only 6.2lbs(2.2kgs), small size, only 11.2“ x 8.7“ x 1.9“ (28.4 x 22.1 x 4.8 cm), ease of handling using the hand strap at the side of the housing, long battery runtime (up to 5hrs. in normal use), high CPU power from an Intel Yonah Core Duo Processor U2500 with 1.2GHz clock rate and numerous I/O ports, i.e. RS232, USB, Bluetooth, VGA, LAN, WLAN, 56K modem, PCMCIA, SD-Card, 3G and GPS for high connectivity.
For use and installation in vehicles there is also a vehicle mount and a vehicle docking station available which allows the Victum-Note V-Series PCs to be easily and safely mounted and connected.
The Victum-Note V-Series units are built to order and come with a 3 year warranty. Acturion Datasys can supply within 6 weeks of a confirmed order.
