While the CT8X2 is rugged to its core, the lightweight exterior maintains a sleek design. The CT8X2 was built for use in extreme environments, with the ability to operate in temperatures ranging from -4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 C to 60 C). A screen layered with Gorilla Glass makes multiple 1-meter drops to concrete no sweat.

    The CT8X2 offers added durability at a budget-friendly price when a consumer device just won’t cut it. Need to equip a large crew with devices? Quantity-based discount pricing is also available.
