This holiday season, Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) is making a list, checking it twice, and finding out whose touchscreen tablets need some sound advice.

Get CPI on your touchscreen tablet deviceAfter all, one of the year’s hottest holiday gifts does much more than just surf the web, check email and play Angry Birds – it makes for one heck of an on-the-job tool and resource in the planning and installation of IT infrastructure storage in a computer/equipment room or data center.

As noted by Ron Leger (RCDD, RTPM(i), OSP) in BICSI News magazine’s November/December 2011 cover story, the proliferation of hand-held computer tablets (especially the Apple iPad) for technology consultants in the workplace has led to a variety of value-added applications and uses.

Chief among them, the ability to view, download and share a variety of files that are key to project creation and retention. This includes hosting PDFs for download and quick access, viewing computer-aided-design (CAD) files, and handy photo-taking capabilities to capture on-site images and share with teammates across the globe via email.

It’s something CPI Field Applications Engineer Fernando Reyna knows quite well, recently visiting with a customer and using a tablet to quickly access CPI product cutsheets and catalog info. Fernando points out that “it was so much easier and faster than pulling out a laptop and finding a hot spot,” while the correct dimensions for a baying kit were identified from the cutsheet and the proper fit ensured.

While the most detailed of this product information and assorted design tools and downloads can always be accessed straight from our site, saving a variety of high-level CPI PDFs to your tablet ensures having critical info even when working offline. These include:

As touchscreen tablets continue to make their way into data centers, computer rooms and premise networks, be sure to follow CPI for the latest in using these gadgets to make your next project that much easier. Jeff Cihocki, eContent Specialist
