8 User Changeable Modular Areas

The TOUGHBOOK 40 features eight user-replaceable option areas including the battery, memory, storage, keyboard and four additional expansion areas. The expansion areas features several different types of expansion packs including Blu-Ray or DVD optical drives, authentication readers, additional inputs/outputs, long life batteries and secure storage.

We understand that it's not "Business as Usual". In fact, the TOUGHBOOK 40 outshines all else when put amongst the most extreme conditions. With specialist Defence features for night operations such as "Concealed Mode" which at the press of a button removes all light and electronic transmissions, through to a range of enhancements such as rubberised keyboards for those Mining and Field Service workers operating constantly in dusty envrionments, the TOUGHBOOK 40 can be tailored to your needs.

Communications That Never Stop

To ensure effective communications in the field, the Waves MaxxAudio® Stereo Speakers emphasises the human voice to ensure smooth conversations with up to 3x the accuracy in noisy environments. The new Quad array microphone with AI noise reduction also removes ambient noise from the microphone input.
