Blueforce has been a huge proponent of the Kyocera DurForce PRO2 for years now because of the military-grade ruggedness and resilience, but also it’s immense utility for hazardous environments. The device boasts IP68 waterproof and dust proof certification (to 2m/6.5ft deep for up to 30 minutes) and Military Standard 810G for protection against shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, immersion, temperature shock and icing/freezing rain. It has been certified Non-Incendive, Class I, Division 2 (Group A-D, T4) and is ideal for field operations that require durability and safety where concentrations of flammable gas, vapors or mists are not normally present in explosive concentrations but may exist.
We know that many of our customers trust the DFP2 for all types of use cases to include hazmat, CBRNE, and emergency medical response to include COVID-19. To that end, Kyocera has created documentation that provides guidance on how to keep Rugged Dura Series smartphones and flip phones clean and virtually free of germs. Mobile devices CAN transmit pathogens if not cleaned and disinfected properly. Kyocera devices are Japanese-precision engineered to withstand decontamination cleaning procedures and the PDF can be downloaded here.
