The Second Installment of the Modular Toughbook FZ-55

The Toughbook FZ-55 MK2 is the latest version of the popular modular semi rugged laptop.  With Gen 11 Intel CPU, Wifi 6 and Thunderbolt 4 addition, the FZ-55 MK2 is even better than ever.
In the past it would be impossible to add additional ports to a Toughbook post-sales, upgrades had to be done at the time of order and most of the time it will take weeks for the upgrade to be done. With the new modular systems, users have more flexibility to add additional ports or upgrades post-sales, therefore, ensuring even better ROI than they had before.
I/O, optical drives, authentication readers, and even discrete graphic expansion packs are now user-upgradeable. Backwards compatibility with the previous generation of docks and charger protects customers' investments of existing CF-54 users while saving time and resources.
With 19 hrs operation life for standard non touch model, it gives FZ-55 user all-day battery life, for continuous shift operator, 2nd modular battery can be added giving unprecedented 38 hrs operation life to the device.
Another modular option that is sure to be appreciated is the rugged Fischer USB port which ensures the smooth operation of USB connection between the laptop and USB device connected to it especially in in-vehicle applications. The FZ-55 is equipped with 4x microphones providing unparalleled speech recognition accuracy. For night or dark environment user there is color-selectable backlit keyboard (6 options) that can be added.
