This lead to the creation of some of the most popular rugged data collectors on the market including the Juniper Allegro 2 / Carlson Surveyor 2, the Archer 2, the Cedar line of Android tablets and more. All of these collectors have been proven to be able to stand up to anything that has been thrown at them.

This means that if you ever need any support or service, you can deal with someone in your time zone, and who is able to turn around any repairs within one day.
