1. Lizard RS11 - The revolution of rugged Laptops

The lightweight Laptop Lizard RS11

roda succeeded with a new star of ruggedized Notebooks. Due to its combination of low weight, slim form, best performance and impressive robustness, you really should take a closer look onto the  Lizard RS 11.



The 13,3” HD LCD Laptop has a weight of just 2.5 kilograms and a low height of 24 mm. This weight and form conform closely to a MacBook Pro. Thereby it is the most flat and most light rugged Laptop worldwide.



Intel® i7-3517UE processor & battery duration: The chip set is based on the Intel® Chief River Platform, thereby it has a solid performance and good economic properties. That means the RS11's 6040 mAh watt-hour battery should last quite long. The graphic card HD Graphics 4000 is also from Intel®. The system is featured with a 4 GB DDR3 internal memory, upgradeable to 8 GB (Industrial Grade -40 ºto +85ºC). In standard version Lizard RS 11 has a removable 2,5” SATA HDD 500 GB hard disk which can be changed alternatively into SSD hard disks up to 300 GB (MLC/SLC). The available operating systems are Windows 7/8.



Previous rugged laptop cases are made from an aluminium casting but Lizard RS 11 case is CNC-milled out of all-aluminum. Thereby it receives a higher accuracy grade and a robustness which hasn’t ever been achieved before. Moreover the fanless Lizard RS 11 performs to the requirements of MIL-STD 810G (environment) and MIL-STD 461F (EMI) Ground Navy (optional Ground Army) as well as IP65-protection (with open caps).


Beside the famous and Intel® i7-upgraded Rocky Laptops, which are usually mounted in vehicles, there is a product for high mobile missions available from November 2013. For more information please visit us at or contact us via e-mail: newsletter(at)


Tablet-series Lynx – Standard, compact, rugged, unbeatable price for the performance level!

The new rugged tablet "Lynx"

roda has expanded its portfolio by adding exciting fully rugged products and following the common trend towards more affordable Tablet PC platforms. For this roda has intentionally passed on several features, normally associated with more expensive products. The Lynx series tablets are embedded in a bespoke rugged plastic case rather than an aluminium case. The low energy and favourable Intel® Atom processor (N2600) 1.6 GHz (Cedar Trail) allows the use of a smaller battery. The unit is portable and may be carried in one hand, due to the low weight (which is between 0.9 and 1.1 kilogram). Nevertheless, the Lynx models are rated to IP65 and MIL-STD 810G as well as being CE certified. In the standard version, the models are supplied with 2 GB DDR3 RAM, 32 GB SATA SSD and two cameras (2 and 5 MPixel). The package is completed with a Windows 7 Pro operating system, WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, glove operable resistive 7” or 10.4” display and 6 free programmable front keys. The external interfaces are power supply (DC-In), 2 x USB 2.0, Audio, Mini-USB, as well as a docking connector.

Project-specific solutions may be customised with manageable options (e.g. GPS, WWAN, TPM 1.2, SmartCard-Reader module) and accessories (e.g. custom vehicle mountings, 2. batteries and much more…)

The Lynx product line is excellent for customers who are looking for a rugged, but economic solution. If you are seeking a product, please write to us at: newsletter(at)
