IP65/MIL protected industrial tablets PM-521 and PX-501 from RUGGON


Taiwanese-based company Ruggon was founded in 2014. During its existence, Ruggon has established itself as one of the leaders in the development of unique solutions for various industries.

The main difference between industrial tablet computers and regular household ones is a high degree of protection. The choice for high reliability is due to the harsh operating conditions. At the moment, the most popular Ruggon’s products are tablet computers with IP65 protection and certification according to the American army standard MIL-STD-810G.

MIL-STD-810G testing includes drop testing, shock, vibration, elevation change, temperature and more. Successful passing of various tests allows Ruggon equipment to be used in the most severe operating conditions.

PM-521 Tablet PC


PM-521 has a ruggedized design with IP65 protection rate and is certified according to the MIL-STD-810G standard.

This Tablet PC is based on the Intel Atom E3827 CPU with a clock frequency of 1.75 GHz with 4GB DDR3L RAM and 128GB mSATA storage.

Special attention should be paid to the display PM-521 has a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels and 1000 nits brightness, allowing the tablet to be used in bright sunlight. In addition, this model has a 10-point capacitive display which can be used with gloves, wet hands or a hard-tip stylus.

This model also offers a wide selection of communication options:

  • RJ-45 Ethernet port
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac support
  • 4G LTE support is available as an option
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR support

Another important advantage of Ruggon tablets is geopositioning support which is available in basic device configuration. For example, PM-521, supports global positioning systems: GPS, Russian GLONASS and Chinese BeiDou.


The combination of a high degree of protection, broad communication capabilities and sufficient performance makes PM-521 a great solution for a wide range of tasks.

PM-521 application stories

Let us take a look on an example of PM-521 application. In 2019, Groupe SSI, an European company working in the field of security systems, got a contract to supply 50 sets of video surveillance systems to protect the state border. This system was named OSIRIS.

Why was Ruggon’s PM-521 chosen for this task? The main challenge in this project was to select the most suitable and compatible components that not only meet the technical specifications, but also combine uncompromising quality with an affordable budget.

Groupe SSI has opted for PM-521 Tablet PC, because it combines a high degree of protection, the ability to withstand drops from 1.5 meters, the ability to work in the rain and in bright sunlight.

The entire OSIRIS is a portable system which includes:

  • PM-521 Tablet PC, integrated into a secure case
  • Day/night mode camera
  • Motion Sensor
  • Laser rangefinder

An RS-232 interface is used to control the camera. Taken together, the OSIRIS system allows for video surveillance in the daytime and at night, detecting movement, hacking, determining geographic coordinates, recording and transmitting data to the control center.


Besides military use, PM-521 has proven itself in the food industry. For example, Le Blé d'Or company, which name means "golden malt" in French, is a famous brewery and restaurant in Taiwan. They use this tablet at all stages of production, storage and transportation of products.

A brewery is a harsh environment with high demands on the equipment used there. Brewery employees must control all stages of brewing, including receipt and shipment of products in both outdoor and indoor areas, work in wet rooms of the brewery and cooling of finished products in the freezer. Timely receipt of information at all stages of production allows the team to detect any issues and immediately take action to solve them.


PM-521 Tablet PC combines:

  • High degree of protection against moisture and dust
  • Wide operational temperature range from -20 to + 50C at high humidity
  • 1.5 meters drop protection
  • Long battery life with hot swappable batteries

Compliance with all requirements allowed the brewery management to work in all premises and instantly exchange information between 8 restaurants of the company in real time without worrying about damaging the tablet.

PX-501 Tablet PC


PX-501 has a ruggedized design with IP65 protection rate and is certified according to the MIL-STD-810G standard. This tablet is very similar in design to the previously reviewed PM-521, but the technical characteristics of PX-501 are much more hi-end.

The tablet is based on a high-performance Intel Core i5-5350U CPU with vPro technology, with 8GB DDR3L RAM and 128GB mSATA storage. There is a 10-inch display, with a resolution of 1920x1200 and a brightness of 1000 nits.

The two models also differ in touch screen modes of operation: in addition to working with gloves, with wet hands and a stylus with a hard tip PX-501 can work with digital pen (Digitizer).

PX-501 application stories

High performance and digital pen capability has determined the choice of PX-501 for implementing a project in the energy complex of Poland.


Ensuring the country's energy supply is a challenging task which comes with great responsibility, especially in the field of providing electricity to railways and enterprises. Devices operating in the field should provide connection to any database server, data transfer between the control center and an engineer, as well as high autonomy.

The company's engineers must monitor the status of power grids in all weather conditions, and PX-501 Tablet PC proved to be the perfect solution. It combines a high degree of protection IP65 with a wide temperature range from -20 to + 60C and provides a stable communication channel through a local and mobile network.
