Rugged Notebooks

The robust notebooks of the Rockbook series are fast, robust, durable, reliable and easy to transport thanks to the carrying handle. Wherever computers have to be used under extreme conditions, WEROCK notebooks show their strengths.

Ready to Rock

Especially in the industrial environment, you must be able to rely on your hardware. WEROCK notebooks have been specially developed for the requirements of a rough working environment. The robust computers are specially protected against falls, blows, water, vibrations and extreme temperatures. These special features have been certified by independent test laboratories according to industrial and military standards. A customised range of accessories will also help you achieve maximum productivity with your Rockbook.

Ruggedized Features

Certified robustness - Tested to military standards

Laptops of the Rockbook series are tested according to the US military standard MIL-STD-810G/H for resilience. Here, the protection against vibrations on the vibrating table is tested, but also several falls from a height of more than one metre. Depending on the test procedure, even from up to 1.8 m on hard floors. It is important to be able to work in any environment, even in icy cold. To pass the test, the Rockbooks must function in a temperature range of -21 °C to +60 °C.

Protected from water and dust

Rockbooks are completely protected against water and dust with an ingress protection of IP65 or better. The first digit stands for dust protection, where 6 stands for the highest protection, the second digit stands for protection against water. 5 means protection against water jets from all directions. A Rockbook is built for harsh environments, you can always use it in the rain.

Built for outdoor use

The display of a notebook is the essential ergonomic component. Designed for outdoor use, the robust Rockbooks offer excellent displays that are high-contrast and very bright. With a Rockbook, you can work without restrictions even in bright sunshine. Powerful and modern hot-swap battery technologies ensure that you never run out of juice.

Performance on demand

Rely on modern standards for your IT. Rockbook notebooks have modern, powerful and energy-efficient processors. The advanced architectures enable multitasking for all your applications - no matter what industry you are in.

Strong security features

We understand that security plays an important role in companies. All Rockbooks therefore offer strong security features at both hardware and software level. All devices have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 protection on hardware level, as well as strong Windows security features such as Bitlocker, Windows Hello or Defender Antivirus. All products offer additional individual security features.

Perfect connectivity in all situations

Rockbooks are workhorses. They are equipped with a wide range of interfaces and offer numerous expansion options if you need them. Equipped with powerful antennas and WLAN modules from Intel®, they remain perfectly networked even in industrial environments. If your workstation is outside the company premises, you remain networked without interruption thanks to the integrated 4G LTE. In addition, the built-in GPS provides accurate position tracking and geographical overviews.

Frequently Asked Questions

Individual configurations such as other hard disks or LTE modules are of course possible, even in larger quantities. Just send us an e-mail with the necessary requirements and we will send you a suitable offer.

Unlike consumer or business notebooks, rugged notebooks are manufactured in much smaller quantities. IT hardware can be produced cheaply if it is manufactured in large quantities. Large and fast production lines can be set up for automated production. However, in the production of ruggedised notebooks everything is different. For industrial customers, long-term availability is also important. The components used can hardly be compared with those of conventional IT. They are designed for long-term availability, durability and extreme temperatures. At the same time, ruggedised notebooks are only produced in very small quantities, and their production can hardly be automated due to the high effort involved in housing production. All this increases the manufacturing costs. Additional cost drivers are the costly sales and customer support – because before the purchase a lot of advice, loaning and possibly also adjustments are required.

We offer quantity discounts starting from a small order quantity. With our product configurator you can let us know which options you need exactly in which quantity. We will gladly send you the best price

If required, we can also deliver the devices with LTE module, RFID module, illuminated keyboard, foreign language keyboard, spare battery, or car charging adapter module.

We have a large selection of office notebooks, ultra-light notebooks, very powerful notebooks and robust tablets. Please send us an e-mail with your requirements and we will offer you the most suitable device.

The so-called ruggedized notebooks have been designed for use in particularly harsh environments or under adverse climatic conditions. They are so robust that they are suitable for outdoor and open-air use. WEROCK offers high quality rugged laptop models for a variety of applications in the computer sector. Rockbook notebooks belong to the category “Fully-Rugged”. Generally, such laptops are divided into the categories Semi-Rugged, Fully-rugged and Ultra-Rugged:

  • Semi-Rugged
    Very compact with noble design, oriented to consumer devices, reasonably priced.
    High performance processors require ventilation slots.
    Vibration-, splash water- and shock-proof e.g. according to IP53
    partly to military standard.
  • Fully-Rugged
    Fully protected industrial/military laptops.
    Completely water and dust protected housing, protection class IP 65.
    Certified to military standard MIL-STD 810G (Military specifications for use in the most adverse conditions).
  • Ultra-Rugged
    Maximum protected industrial/military laptops for extreme requirements. Completely water and dust protected housing, protection class IP 65, certified to MIL-STD 810G + EMC. Usually equipped with special screw terminals for use in military applications.

In addition to our own notebooks, you can also obtain semi-rugged and ultra-rugged notebooks from us. We are looking forward to your inquiry.

For the production, packaging and transport of a Rockbook, we make compensation payments corresponding to a CO2 emission of 180 kg per kilo product weight. The actual footprint is significantly lower. As the effort and costs of calculating the exact footprint would not be economical for industrial niche products, we and our partners decided to overcompensate significantly.

One of the major emission factors, besides manufacturing, are packaging and transport. Rockbooks score here with a cardboard that consists almost entirely of unbleached paper. In contrast to the usual transport route by air freight, the devices reach Germany by rail. Not only because of the lower price, but also because of the significantly lower CO2 emissions – a CO2 saving of about 90%. Only for particularly urgent orders and if it is logistically unavoidable, we choose air freight.

Whether a notebook or a laptop makes more sense depends on the intended use. The main difference between the two device concepts lies in the keyboard. The notebook has one, a tablet does not.

So think about it: Do you have to enter a lot of text? If the answer is yes, you are usually better off with a notebook than with a tablet. If this is not quite clear, you should also consider whether your software can be operated at all with your finger (or a pen). In particular, the question arises whether the control elements are large enough to avoid making incorrect entries with your finger.

As an solution between both there are also notebooks with touchscreen as well as convertibles which fulfil both application aspects.
