German company Bormann has launched the Flatbook C09 mobile wireless PC for use in any police vehicle following what it calls “a very successful launch across Europe.”
Already in operational use by police forces in Germany, Poland, Slovenia as well as several others the Flatbook C09 offers a flexible solution to the need for police mobile data without having a PC fitted in every vehicle. The C09 can be used in-car indefinitely but can also be removed for use outside the vehicle for typically up to 3 hours.
Deploying the C09 widely significantly reduces fitting costs of fixed PC’s and since 20% of cars are typically out of circulation, for service, tyres, etc at any point in time having a flexible solution, where the hard disk is easily removable for security and multiple users, already represents a significant financial saving.
Together with the approved accessories finger print reader, passport reader and digital tacho-graph chip card reader the Flatbook C09 provides a fully integrated solution for most police operations. Since the Flatbook C09 can also be easily removed from the vehicle it is simple and efficient to set up a temporary incident room and network several C09’s together
The Flatbook C09 can now be purchased and supported locally in the UK and is supplied as standard with Windows XP or Windows 7 embedded allowing customisation by the police force for each specific application.
The Flatbook C09 has a waterproof, IP54 rating, is backward and forward footprint compatible, presents no sunlight issues and can be easily interfaced to other police accessories via Bluetooth or direct connection eg the Flatbook C09 can be fitted with a TETRA modem or it can be connected to a TETRA radio via Bluetooth.
