Fully-rugged Toughbook® models are also tested to the MIL-STD-461F standard methodology for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in Panasonic's R&D facility in Japan and certified by a third party. The certification ensures that Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers are electromagnetically compatible with other nearby electronic equipment. Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers do not generate unwanted electromagnetic energy that could interfere with the operation of other equipment, nor are susceptible to the effects of unwanted electromagnetic energy from equipment in the same vicinity. Panasonic has various certifications that meet federal requirements for rugged computers. DOWNLOAD MIL-STD-461F REPORT
Fully-rugged Panasonic computers are the first computers to be MIL-STD-810G certified for a range of extreme conditions including 48" drops, shocks, vibration, humidity, altitude, rain-, dust- and sand-resistance, temperature extremes and thermal shock. Each of the twenty-five MIL-STD-810G tests conducted have been certified by independent lab testing. MIL-STD-810G, which was created in October 2008, supersedes MIL-STD-810F. DOWNLOAD MIL-STD-810G REPORT
Ingress Protection (IP65)
Fully-rugged Toughbook® mobile computers are IP65 certified according to the IP code defined in the international standard IEC 60529.

The products are tested and certified by an independent test lab facility located in the United States. Rather than vaguely describing equipment as "waterproof" or "dustproof", the IP Code uniformly quantifies various levels of resistance to liquids, particulates and solid objects. The numbers following the letters "IP" represent the specific degree of protection provided by electrical enclosures. The first digit (6) indicates the ingress of dust at a level that will not have a harmful effect on the operation of the unit. The second digit (5) indicates that water sprayed from all directions will not compromise the computer's functioning. Higher numbers indicate a higher tolerance to dust and water. For example, a unit with an IP65 rating will withstand both elements better than a unit with an IP54 rating. While IP65-certified Toughbook computers are not completely impervious to the ingress of water or dust, the rating does indicate neither element will cause operational complications while used under conditions commonly encountered by Toughbook mobile computers. DOWNLOAD IP65 REPORT
ENERGY STAR Qualification
ENERGY STAR, a joint program between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy, offers voluntary qualification for products that are energy efficient. The ENERGY STAR program sets high standards designed to save energy, save money and help protect the environment for future generations. Panasonic is one of nearly 20,000 organizations that have become ENERGY STAR partners, all working to promote, sell, or improve products, homes, and buildings that use less energy and qualify for the ENERGY STAR. Panasonic's commitment to ENERGY STAR initiatives and other environmental programs have resulted in all Toughbook® computers earning the ENERGY STAR.

ENERGY STAR for computers raises the efficiency bar dramatically. ENERGY STAR establishes efficiency requirements for all modes of a product's operation, which ensures energy savings when a product is active and running basic applications, as well as in low power modes. Qualifying products must also include an internal power supply that is at least 80 percent efficient. Only the most energy-efficient products, including all Toughbook computers have qualified for the new specification. If all computers sold in the US meet ENERGY STAR requirements, the savings in energy costs will grow to more than $1.5 billion each year, reducing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 2 million vehicles. READ MORE
EPEAT Certification
EPEAT is an easy-to-use, online tool to help purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate, compare and select products based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria for the design of products, and provides an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its products.

EPEAT evaluates electronic products according to three tiers of environmental performance — Bronze, Silver and Gold. There are 51 total environmental criteria: 23 required criteria and 28 optional criteria. A Bronze-rated product meets all 23 required criteria. A Silver-rated product meets all 23 required criteria plus at least 50% of the optional criteria. A Gold-rated product meets all 23 required criteria and at least 75% of the optional criteria. All Toughbook computer models are either gold- or silver-rated, ensuring the highest level of environmental performance. READ MORE
ISO Certification
Since 1996, all Panasonic manufacturing plants worldwide—including the factory in Kobe, Japan—have achieved ISO 14001 registration and implemented the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. The Kobe factory has also been certified for ISO 9001, an international standard for quality management systems that enhance product quality assurance and customer satisfaction.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international federation promoting the development of international manufacturing, trade, and communication standards. ISO 14000, a series of standards, provides the framework for managing the environmental impacts of an organization.

The ISO 14001 international standard established a systematic approach that organizations can use to minimize or prevent environmental impacts and risks. This approach, known as an Environmental Management System or EMS, requires the organization to establish an environmental control policy, educate employees about procedures and continually monitor environmental performance. DOWNLOAD ISO 9001 REPORT
RoHS Compliance
For manufacturers of electronic equipment, the main impact of RoHS is that only lead-free products can be sold in Europe. Panasonic has therefore shifted to lead-free solder. By selling RoHS-compliant products in all countries, not just Europe, Panasonic helps eliminate hazardous electronic waste materials from landfills and waste dumps around the world. READ MORE
Section 508 Standards
Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. Electronic and information technology procured by Federal agencies must meet Section 508's requirements for accessibility. 

Toughbook® mobile computers have long been designed and manufactured with access-friendly features, such as touchscreens and the ability to be mounted on wheelchairs. In addition, Panasonic works closely with Microsoft to ensure that Toughbook computers can take full advantage of the accessibility features built into Windows®. Panasonic continually endeavors to make all its products more accessible to, and usable by, individuals with disabilities. In fact, Panasonic worked with ITIC (Information Technology Industry Council) in developing the Section 508 "Buy Accessible" template, and also actively participates in the GSA (General Services Administration) sponsored Accessibility Forum. READ MORE

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • I'm looking for a CF 54 toughbook, with i5 processor, 500Gb HD, Windows 7 Pro in french (VERY IMPORTANT). I need something stock for next week.

    We are unable to advise you in terms of a foreign language operating system.  It is likely a simple language pack from Microsoft, but I'm afraid we are unable to provide a Toughbook something other than the standard Windows 7 Pro or Windows 10 Pro OS.

  • What are all of the differences between the Lite, Prime, Touchscreen and Performance models?

    Great question.

    1.  The "Lite" unit is going to offer the most basic configuration and will have some limitations on what options can be added.  It will have a 500GB(5400rpm) hard drive, a light-weight battery and NO backlit keyboard.  You CANNOT add a serial port, webcam, fingerprint or dual-pass to a Lite unit.

    2.  The "Prime" unit is going to offer the full menu of options and also adds a 500GB(7200rpm) hard drive, a long-life battery and a backlit keyboard.  The Prime unit, like the Lite, will have a standard 1366 x 768 resolution.

    3.  The "Touchscreen" unit has everything a Prime unit has, but with a 1000-NIT sunlight viewable display and a 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution.

    4.  The "Performance" version has everything the Touchscreen unit has, except you substitute the touchscreen and 1000-NIT display for an AMD FirePro graphics card with dedicated video RAM.  Unfortunately, you cannot have BOTH dedicated video RAM AND a bright outdoor viewable display.  You have to make a fundamental choice between the two when deciding between a Touchscreen and Performance version.

  • How do one install the keyboard of the CF-54

    Unfortunately the keyboard of a Toughbook 54 is tricky to remove and/or replace.  I would suggest reaching out to Panasonic's warranty department at 1-800-LAPTOP-5 to set up a repair.

  • What is the difference with the CF-54 prime, lite, performance?

    The "Lite" unit will offer a light-weight battery and 5400rpm hard drive standard and also limits the possible integrated options available.  It is also lacking a backlit keyboard.  The Prime unit will offer all possible options on a normal resolution and bright screen with standard graphics (shared video RAM).  The Performance model offers everything like the Prime, but comes standard with a high-end graphics chip set with dedicated video RAM and a 1920x1080 Full HD display/resolution.
