The Havis Docking Station for the Panasonic Toughbook H2 is the ideal solution for all your computing needs. Designed with versatility in mind, Havis mounting options allow for docking and usage in any work environment and complies with medical wall mounting requirements. The DS-PAN-600 Series Docking Sta- tion offers computer charging, security, and connection to peripherals in medi- cal, enterprise, and in-vehicle workplac- es. Top exiting ports and easy to use strain relieving allow for a low profile mount in mobile solutions and reduce the need for cable extensions. Use of barcode scanners is available while computer is securely docked. Havis also offers optional USB extension cables for more convenient access from either or both sides of the docking station. H2 Docking Station For mobile workers, using the space within their vehicle becomes more challenging as the amount of in-vehicle equipment increases. The trunk offers additional storage space, but it must be properly organized to pre- vent damage to equipment. A trunk that is orga- nized provides quick and easy access to nec- essary equipment and minimizes clut- ter. Mounting equipment in the trunk also frees up additional cab space and provides a safer environment for both the driver and any passengers. Although mobile workers depend on a number of these electronics and other technolo- gies, many newer vehicle models are actually offering less interior space for such equipment. Therefore, Havis designed this new trunk tray to utilize the area along the We have seen the CG-X Chargeguard returned for repair or replacement that actually tests good. Here are the main reasons to cause the product not to perform properly and should be double checked in the field. 1. Bad ground contact 2. Installer has connected over 30 amps of equipment 3. Positive 12 volt connection is too far from the battery or alternator 4. Bad or inconsistent Ignition source 5. Vehicle voltage change is not enough to activate sensor Note: Electrical systems on newer vehicles don't always have enough voltage change to activate the DC or AC mode sensor. When- ever possible, try to install the CG-X using the ignition mode activation feature. This will minimize the chance of malfunction (see install instructions). -MS Havis Products Minimize In-vehicle Distractions to Maximize Mobile Worker Safety Without Compromising Productivity New Distracted Driving Legislation Mandates Safer In-vehicle Workspaces Tech Tips In response to recent legislation against distracted driving, 80 percent of commercial fleet operators have adopted written policies regarding employee cell phone use while driv- ing. [1] To improve fleet safety as well as productivity, Havis Inc. designs vehicle and computer mounts that aid drivers in focusing on their work when safely parked and reducing distractions once they are back on the road. Research by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration cites that commer- cial drivers reaching for an object triple their risk of an accident or other safety- critical event. Havis minimizes this risk with vehicle consoles that secure radios, emergency lighting controls and com- munications equipment within comfort- able reach. This familiar, easy access to equipment keeps drivers safely seated with their eyes on the road. In addition to what is mounted in their vehicle console, mobile workers also rely on laptops, printers, card readers and other peripherals throughout their day. A proper docking station and vehicle mount will securely lock the driver's laptop in place and prevent unwanted swinging through quick maneuvers and crash situations. Although reducing in-vehicle dis- tractions can improve safety, drivers still face additional risks caused by inclem- ent weather, poor road conditions and other external factors. In the event of an accident, Havis mounting products are designed to assist in preventing laptops or peripherals from becoming potentially lethal projectiles. The locking mechanism on Havis docking stations actually strengthens as force is applied in a crash. These docking stations also comply with and exceed safety standards for rugged mobile computing, withstand- ing shock and vibration testing, a 30 mph crash test, cycle testing, and electromag- netic interference testing. Additionally, Havis mounting solutions are tested as an entire system to improve safety during impact events and rollovers.

Maximize productivity with the lightweight and strong design built with theft deterrence, longevity and stability in mind.
