Device design process

Easy connection to a PC

When required, the RUGGEDrive™ tokens offer easy controlled connection to a PC through a simple PC adapter. With this adapter, standard Mass Storage Device (i.e. drive letter) operation is achieved.


Without this PC adapter, the RUGGEDrive™ token can not fit into ‘just any’ PC. The unique form-factor helps to secure data stored on the tokens and greatly reduces the risk of malicious files being loaded to or from the token.
