WEROCK introduces fully rugged industrial notebook with cutting-edge technology


WEROCK Technologies GmbH, innovative manufacturer of industrial rugged tablets, notebooks and handheld mobile computers, introduces the “Rockbook X130”, an industrial notebook with a 13.3-inch screen and 11th generation Intel® Tiger Lake processors. It is designed for professional use in harsh industrial environments. Despite its fully ruggedized design and waterproof casing, the new model offers numerous amenities familiar from normal laptops: Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, Thunderbolt 4 and a backlit keyboard are just a few highlights.

Groundbreaking performance for extensive and complex projects is promised by the Intel® Core™ i5 or Core™ i7 processors from Intel®’s Tiger Lake platform, which is manufactured in 10nm SuperFin technology. They offer performance, responsiveness, long battery runtimes and impressive graphics with the Iris® Xe GPU. Efficient work is also enabled by the included Windows 11 Pro (other operating systems also available) and a USB-C Thunderbold™ 4 port provides fast connections between devices. The integrated RJ45 and RS232 interfaces allow for machine configuration. An M.2 expansion slot enables the integration of 4G or AI modules.

The completely redesigned magnesium alloy chassis offers increased strength with reduced weight. Thus, the Rockbook X130 only weighs 2.1 kg and is incredibly thin with 26 mm. Nevertheless, the user doesn’t have to make any compromises in terms of robustness. The industrial notebook has been tested for drops from 1.22 m according to MIL-STD-810H, has an IP65 certification and is thus water and dust resistant. Optionally, the model is also available with EMC protection according to MIL-STD-461.

The industrial 13.3-inch display offers full HD resolution and 400 cd/m2 brightness, making it easy to read even when working outdoors. Optionally, the model is also available with glove-operated touchscreen. An illuminated keyboard ensures comfortable working under poor lighting conditions.

The two hot-swappable batteries with a total of 62 Wh capacity ensure uninterrupted operation. The efficient design keeps the laptop running continuously for up to 10 hours, depending on usage. A discrete TPM 2.0 module, as well as integrated Device Protection Technology with Boot Guard contribute to the system’s protection. Logging into Windows can be done comfortably via fingerprint.
