John & Geode

As the product manager of the Geode, I’m proud. It’s incredible what a customer-focused group of GNSS-loving individuals can produce. The Geode Sub-meter GPS Receiver was developed as a solution for gathering accurate, real-time data. Though similar products prior to the Geode provided accurate GNSS readings, each user interface was complex or inflexible. Not to mention the cost of other precision receivers. We decided to change that.

Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet in M2 Dock

Running a powerful quad-core processor and a full Windows 10 operating system, the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet™ is the most capable device built by Juniper Systems yet. As we’ve said before, since it runs on full Windows, the Mesa 2 is robust enough to even be used as your desktop PC, making it especially easy to transition from collecting data in the field, to further utilizing your data back in the office.

Today you’ll find out how easy it is to start using your Mesa 2 as a desktop computer, beginning with the simplest way:

Capacitive touch screen in rain and wet conditions

The capacitive touch screen on the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet™ is very different from the resistive touch screen on the original Mesa Rugged Notepad™. Capacitive touch screens appear brighter and can provide greater clarity and contrast, increased durability, and multi-touch capabilities. They are also different from resistive touch screens because while resistive touch screens respond to pressure, capacitive touch screens detect and measure anything that is conductive, so that the slight touch of a fingertip or capacitive stylus triggers a response.

Transferring data on the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet

The Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet™ is different from other Juniper Systems handhelds in several key ways. Probably the biggest difference is in the operating system—the Mesa 2 runs full Windows 10, while other Juniper handhelds run on Windows Embedded Handheld. Continue Reading…

Mesa 2 Windows Rugged Tablet

If you’ve checked out the new Mesa 2™ Rugged Tablet since our announcement last week, then I’m sure you’ve picked up on a few of the obvious things:

  • It’s running the new Windows 10.
  • It’s got a 7-inch display—larger than any of our previous handhelds.
  • Its battery lasts 8–10 hours, plus you can get an optional internal battery to gain an additional 4-5 hours of runtime.
  • It’s rated an impressive IP68 for dust and water.
  • Even with a larger display, it’s thinner and lighter than its predecessor, the Mesa Rugged Notepad.
  • It swapped the Mesa Rugged Notepad’s resistive touch screen out for a capacitive touch screen for better responsiveness.

Knew all that already? Yeah, we figured as much. You guys don’t miss a thing.

BUT… there are a few things that may not be as obvious. Here are 10 things you might not know about the Mesa 2… Continue Reading…

Goal Zero Solar Archer 2

Goal Zero’s Sherpa 100 Solar Power Kit is used to charge the Archer 2 rugged handheld.

Both the Archer 2™ and Allegro 2™ use a long-lasting, Overtime Technology™ battery, with runtimes in excess of 20 hours in many use cases. While this amount of battery power is outstanding, sometimes, for whatever reason, you can’t get to an electrical outlet. Maybe you’re working in a remote location for an extended period of time like this expedition team, or maybe you just plain forgot to charge your rugged handheld. And in those cases, you need to find another way to get power. Continue Reading…
