The Best Rugged Phones and Mobile Devices for Mechanics

Devices That Can Keep Up With Your Daily Workflow

Rugged communication devices that can withstand the most challenging work environments

The Advantages of Shatterproof Phones

Mechanics typically spend the entire day in repair shops and garages surrounded by vehicle parts, heavy-duty equipment, and numerous tools. Whether they’re inspecting a vehicle or assembling car parts, mechanics need a rugged device that can keep up with their physically demanding job.

Regular smartphones would never survive in such an environment. That’s why mechanics benefit from shatterproof, portable, and rugged devices to make their daily workflow much easier. This is exactly what CAT phones have to offer. They can withstand drops, shock, vibration, chemicals, water, and extreme temperatures.

Fully-Rugged Design

CAT phones can take a beating. Thanks to their IP68, IP69, and Mil-Spec 810H ratings, these rugged devices are ideal for challenging working conditions. They don’t even need a protective case.

FLIR Thermal Imaging

FLIR thermal imaging technology can help you detect problems you wouldn’t be able to notice otherwise. This high-tech tool will reveal any leaks, electrical shortages, and extreme temperature shifts, helping you get the job done more efficiently.

Long-Lasting Battery Life

If you didn’t have time to charge your phone last night, there’s no need to worry. All CAT phones have long-lasting batteries that can get you through the day without a single charge.

Optimized for Demanding Industries

  • Antimicrobial Protection

The CAT S42 H+ stands for “Hygiene Plus” because of its built-in antibacterial silver-ion enhanced plating. No matter how dirty your working environment might be, you can always wash your CAT phone with soap and water.

  • Push-to-Talk Communication

All CAT phones have programmable Push-to-Talk buttons that allow for quick and clear communication. You can also program the PTT button to give you instant access to a particular app, saving you valuable time.

  • Lightweight Design

Despite their robust build, CAT phones are extremely light. You can take your rugged smartphone with you and keep it in your pocket the whole day.

  • Drop-Tested

Don’t worry if you accidentally drop your CAT phone. These rugged devices can withstand a fall from 6 feet on all kinds of surfaces. This is only one of the reasons why CAT phones are ideal devices for mechanics.

Ultimate Resistance

Designed to withstand challenging and extreme conditions, there’s nothing that CAT phones can’t take. They are resistant to Category 4 vibrations and rapid temperature shifts from -22 degrees to 167 degrees Fahrenheit for a period of 30 minutes. These devices are completely waterproof, even the internal ports are protected by seals. The exterior is resistant to dust, dirt, sand, humidity, and salt mist.

Extra-Loud Speakers

Repairing car parts or assembling new elements often requires drilling and welding. CAT phones are equipped with extra-loud speakers and a microphone specially designed to combat noisy work environments.

All-Day Power

As a mechanic, you don’t always have time to charge your phone. Since your phone needs to be by your side the whole day, battery life is a common issue. CAT phones are packed with long-lasting, non-removable, Lithium-Ion batteries that support fast charging. The CAT S62 Pro even supports wireless charging.

Corning Gorilla Glass

CAT phones are made using Corning Gorilla Glass and shatter-resistant technology. What’s more, the display is protected from high-pressure water jets. The display is surrounded by corner bumps and a rubberized frame, so you don’t even need a protective case.

Instant Access

Thanks to the programmable PTT button, you can access any app within seconds. You can also use the PTT buttons to contact coworkers, customers, or other individuals in your line of business. Not only that, but CAT phones have sunlight-readable and glove-friendly screens for easier access. The CAT S62 Pro comes with a rear fingerprint scanner.

Fast-Paced Software

CAT phones run on Android 10 and can be updated to Android 11. These rugged smartphones offer all the necessary pre-installed apps you need for your day-to-day activities. If you want to install any more apps, you have an extra 3GB to 6GB of RAM. You also have the option to add an SD card of up to 256GB. CAT phones support hundreds of apps that are available on Google Play.

What Our Customers Have to Say

One of the most important features CAT phones (specifically, the CAT S62 Pro) have to offer is the integrated FLIR camera. Paired with VividIR technology, the FLIR Lepton 3.5 camera offers extremely high thermal resolution and sharp imagery. Mechanics can use this phone’s thermal imaging technology in various ways. Not only can they monitor and diagnose issues on the spot, but they can also use it to detect a heat source, locate a leak, capture changes in temperature, and identify a gap in the insulation. With this handy tool, mechanics can get the job done quickly and efficiently, eliminating any chances of error.
