Increased Operational Efficiency – The Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet’s Android OS and eight-core processor deliver lightning-fast performance. In addition, PCS Field Data Collector software works with your Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet to streamline your survey workflow. Visual features, including maps, help you quickly see the area already surveyed and where you need to survey next.

Ultra-Rugged – Meeting IP68 and MIL-STD-810G ratings, the Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet is designed to work in the harshest conditions. So rain, extreme temperatures, or dust will not get in the way of your productivity.

Hands-off Management – The battery on this unit can last approximately five years, even if it’s transmitting a reading every day. Combine that with remote configuration capabilities and fully internal components that are difficult to damage, and you get a unit that your crews rarely need to visit.

Cathodic Protection Digital Voltmeter – Our Bluetooth digital voltmeter, DVM2130, designed to work with the Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet, is built on our patented technology to ensure highly accurate measurements in less-than-optimal environments.
