AAEON’s RTC-1020 Offers 1.5 x the Battery Capacity and an 800 Nit LCD Screen for Heavy Industry Settings

More powerful, dynamic, and durable, the RTC-1020 offers continuous use at a higher standard.

AAEON, a leader in advanced industrial solution design, has released the RTC-1020, a 10.1″ Rugged Mobile Tablet built for applications such as construction site inspection, mechanical maintenance, and inventory management.

The RTC-1020’s specifications see a variety of upgrades that specifically target pain points encountered in industrial settings, such as greater battery capacity, higher screen readability, and a preinstalled LTE module.

Particularly suited to outdoor environments, the RTC-1020 can operate in temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C, has an IP65 compliant environmental sealing, and is incredibly durable, having been through MIL-STD-810H drop and shock stress testing to guarantee its fitness for use in heavy industry.

A similar prerequisite that the device meets for in-field use is its connectivity options. RED certification means the RTC-1020 can be purchased with a preinstalled LTE module, while the device also boasts an upgrade in Wi-Fi speed and bandwidth due to its support for Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, which substantially improves on the previous generation’s Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. For wireless navigation, the RTC-1020 supports up to three global navigation satellite systems, with GPS and Galileo being the device’s default, and GLONASS and BeiDou also available.

Another key benefit to the RTC-1020 is that it provides continuous operation via two hot-swappable 51.1W lithium-ion batteries, which eliminates the need to power the device down during replacement. The battery capacity is also 50% greater than the previous RTC rugged tablet model, meaning users can take advantage of longer working hours before needing to swap battery packs.


Providing a choice of onboard Intel Core i5-1145G7E, Core i3-1115G4E, or Celeron 6305E processors, the RTC-1020 contains up to 4 cores/8 threads of processing power alongside onboard LPDDR4X system memory. This combination offers ample high-bandwidth data transmission capabilities to utilize the tablet’s I/O, which features a Micro-HDMI, COM (RS-232/422/485), and GbE LAN port, in addition to USB 3.2 Gen 2 via both Type-A and Type-C ports.

To assist with more accurate inspection applications, the RTC-1020 is equipped with a 5MP front and 8MP rear camera, which gives users UHD image collection capabilities. Further, it is equipped with an 800 nit TFT LCD screen to prevent glare and increase readability.

Optional accessories for the RTC-1020 include hand and shoulder straps, a docking station, a charging dock, enhanced battery packs, and power adapters.
