Gamber-Johnson, an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer of rugged docking stations and vehicle mounting, introduces a docking station designed for the Panasonic Toughbook 53.

The new CF53 docking station was designed to maximize the space available inside the vehicle by using a small docking station footprint. Using rugged aluminum, the docking station weighs 6.5 lb without a power supply and 7.5 lb with an internal power supply. Using the same docking mechanism as the company's CF19 docking stations, users can simply insert the computer and push the latch closed to dock. The latch has a built-in keyed lock for theft deterrence. On the front of the dock, a LED Power Switch has been incorporated to allow the user to hot dock the computer without having to power down the computer.

The CF53 docking station has two power-supply options available: external Lind auto adapter (sold separately) and a factory-installed internal 120-W Lind power supply. Certifications and testing include RoHS, FCC and Vibration Testing - MIL-STD 810G 514.5. The docking handle is tested to 10,000 cycles and SAE Standard J1455 Crash Test (pending).
