RugGear Introduces RG540 5G Smartphone
RugGear, a developer and manufacturer of rugged mobile devices for professional use, has expanded its product portfolio with a 5G smartphone. The product is equipped with the eight-core Qualcomm QCM6490 processor from Qualcomm Technologies. This Android 12 device offers individuals mission-critical push-to-talk and -video communication.
A 6-in. FHD display, 48 MP main camera, 103 dB amplified speaker, 4,400 mAh removable battery, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and 16-pin interface for secure peripheral connection complete the feature set. The RG540 supports the new CBRS frequency spectrum for private LTE networks. Especially in the field of public safety and crisis management, process or manufacturing industry and in the logistics sector, the smartphone with 5G technology enables high transmission speeds for demanding applications.
5G Technology and Hardware Components
A rugged and modern mobile device, the RG540 is designed for rescue, fire, police and military, public safety, industrial, maintenance and transport sectors. The RG540 fully complies with the 5G standard, which supports high-speed (near real-time) data transmission for networking and communication in industrial environments such as M2M, M2P and P2P, maintenance, remote monitoring and process optimization.
The 5G smartphone can also be used in company-internal campus networks (stand-alone networks) and constitutes the basis for digitalized applications in automation such as remote maintenance, IIOT and augmented reality, i.e., applications wherein voice or video communication and data exchange with minimal latency is required. Other application scenarios include control or monitoring of mobile robots, tracking of autonomous campus drives and platooning (automated convoy transport on factory sites), location and asset tracking.
The RG540 meets the demands for security and network coverage. WLAN network use is optimized by DUAL APN capability (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and Wi-Fi roaming. The RG540 is compatible with 3GPP Release 15 and supports MCPTX. MCPTX stands for Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) and Mission Critical Push-to-Video (MCPTV), which provides secure, low-latency and uninterrupted team communications.
Professional PTT accessories such as a PTT headset and RSM can be securely connected to the device via the 16-pin interface. A programmable red SOS button can be used for emergency call or lone worker protection through supported applications from RugGear partners. The 103 dB front speaker is designed for loud scenarios. The RG540 is equipped with a replaceable 4,000 mAh lithium battery, measures 180 x 84.5 x 19.5 mm, and weighs 420 g. A desktop charger and belt clip are available as additional accessories.
