The tds recon™ from tripod data systems™ delivers maximum performance and reliability in a lightweight and extremely rugged design that’s easy to carry. The waterproof recon weighs just 17 ounces, and it meets military specifications for drop, vibration and both high and low temperature operation. The recon works wherever and whenever you need it. You can count on recon when portability, data security and maximum operating time are crucial. The innovative modular design saves time and money on long-term service and provides customization options to suit your different applications. The powerboot module™ integrates a 3800 mah battery pack with industry-standard 9-pin serial and usb ports into a single component you can easily replace even in the field. A standard cf-cap™ o-ring seal protects the two compactflash slots from rain, wind and dust. Two optional modules add even more versatility: the extended cf-cap™ provides room for large compactflash cards such as gps, lan and wireless modems, and the aa powerboot module™ lets you run the recon for eight to 16 hours on two aa alkaline or lithium batteries.
