CFM 11 Tablet

The CFM 11 Tablet made by Durabook is an ideal tablet for law enforcement vehicles. This one-of-a-kind tablet is available through Cap Fleet Upfitters due to their partnership with Durabook. “Cap Fleet is the National Distribution Warehouse for Durabook,” said Bryan Ritter, Director of Sales and Marketing at Cap Fleet Upfitters. “We strive to find and support the best resellers in the country.”

On their staff are experts who assist to develop end-user relationships and continue to provide support once the sale is complete. The partnership began in April of this year. Since Durabook’s manufacturer GammaTech is one of the top providers for public safety technology equipment, the match has been well suited. Primarily, their partnership will encompass distribution of rugged laptops and other similar mobile devices.

The motivation behind the partnership is to be able to offer agencies some of the highest caliber equipment along with some of the very best prices that are available. Both companies do their best to provide helpful solutions within reasonable prices ranges while still maintaining modern technology.

The CFM 11 Tablet stands out in particular from other alike tablets from Durabook due to its ability to be easily installed, provide versatile operations, and is equipped with rugged military specs. These features make it equally user-friendly as well as provide resourceful capabilities for law enforcement officers. Those who have used other Durabooks will appreciate the similar setup with the additional program ability.

With an 11.6-inch LCD touchscreen display and a resolution of 1366 by 768 as well as a fifth-generation Intel Broadwell Processor, this tablet is extremely efficient with extremely versatile potential. A shock resistance of IL-STD-810G 514.6 along with dirt and moisture protection and the ability to withstand temperatures well below zero, the CFM 11 Tablet is a robust choice.

Agencies will appreciate the 8GB maximum memory capacity as this tablet is able to hold a large amount of information. Overall storage ability is up to 256GB depending on the buyer’s choice. In addition, integrated into the tablet is a full-fledge, high-definition camera located on the front of the device. The back of the tablet includes a 5MP camera as well that is able to take photos conveniently. As far as audio capabilities go, this tablet includes a high-definition Intel audio system. One speaker and one microphone are included, making the sound quality incredibly precise for users and their needs.

The CFM 11 Tablet is user-friendly and makes for an efficient choice. There are two USB 3.0 connectors that are incorporated into the device along with one audio jack that is 3.5mm with both microphone and headset abilities. The Sim card reader, docking connector, and micro SD reader render easy setup into law enforcement vehicles.

The majority of the power supply for the device comes from an AC adapter or power input with a volt range of 110 volts to 240 volts and a range of 50 to 60 hertz in output. A 19-volt Lithium battery pack is included as well.

According to Ritter, the CFM 11 Tablet is a wise choice for law enforcement agencies due to the variety of tasks the device is able to accomplish. “It allows officers to be mobile outside the vehicle,” Ritter said. The versatility of the device is able to assist officers with monitoring and assessing traffic accidents, interviews, and issuing tickets.

The CFM 11 Tablet’s features allow the officer to acquire all of the necessary data at the moment of the event. The ease of using the tablet in and out of the unit makes it a desirable choice. The convenient size of the CFM 11 Tablet makes it user friendly as well. Dimensions for the apparatus measure at 11.4 inches wide, 7.5 inches high, and 0.8-inch deep. The weight of the tablet is around 2.7 pounds.

As far as security is concerned, the CFM 11 Tablet is an excellent choice among law enforcement agencies. This particular model is equipped with Computrace support BIOS, an administrator password setup, TPM 1.2, Kensington Lock and boot password options. The tablet also has the appropriate certifications in the U.S. (FCC, DOC+, CUS, FCC ID), in the E.U. (CE, CB), and in Canada (CUS, IC). It has a green design that is both RoHS/REACH and EPEAT compliant.

Installing a CFM 11 Tablet from Durabook would mean excellent wireless communication quality. Integrated into the tablet is an Intel Centrino Wireless AC 7260. This offers Bluetooth support up to 4.0. Another wireless option is the M2 module, which is an LTE Module. “We offer turnkey installation options such as docking and antennas as well,” Ritter said. Setup for the tablet comes with two choices available of Windows 7 Professional or Microsoft Windows 10. The CFM 11 Tablet has an MSRP around $2,199.

Ritter also points out the design of the tablet is idyllic for upholding officer safety as well. “Equipping officers to do their job without going back to the squad car enhances officer safety,” he said. This is due to the fact that the tablet allows the officer to input data while keeping the subject at an arm’s length.

“It allows the officer to not only keep an eye on the subject, but allows the officer to complete the stop or event in a timely manner.” Ritter pointed out that being able to obtain this in the public safety space, your equipment must be built to encounter all types of weather from the extreme to the unexpected. “This is where Cap Mobile and Durabook rise above the rest.” Their full military tested and certified line of computers, including this tablet, make these companies excel when it comes to equipping agencies with durable products.

Cap Fleet Upfitters and Durabook are both known for their continual service and effort to improve the technology used by public safety and other types of agencies. This makes the CFM 11 Tablet a great asset to any law enforcement vehicle.
