Running operations in the rugged outdoors is not for the faint of heart. Differing from a desk job environment, someone working in an oil field or in a mine comes into daily contact with an assortment of challenges that can get chaotic pretty quickly for a person who does not know what they are doing. Luckily the meticulous individuals operating in these industries are highly skilled people who are up to the challenge. That is fortunate for the rest of us. We can only imagine where we would be without the fuel needed to drive our cars, the energy to heat our homes and businesses, and the access to prized materials like diamonds when the occasion arises? Yet these diligent workers can’t do their jobs properly without the right equipment. Some of the inimitable challenges for those working in oil, gas, and mining industries are tremendous changes in temperature, high levels of humidity or extreme dryness, and unexpected movement. The latter can range from a small amount of vibration to falling rocks to larger scale explosions. Obviously not every kind of computer will be able to endure these harsh conditions. Acura Embedded Inc. has designed and manufactured rugged solutions for nearly three decades. Their systems can be trusted to work in the harshest of environments.
